You’ve probably noticed that, when the temperature surges, so does your libido—but why? Here comes the hot science.
Although summer may not officially start until June 20, the temperature is already rising as fast as the hand of a straight-A student with daddy issues. With heatwaves, people inevitably show more skin, and even with some of their faces masked, it’s no surprise that people have sex on the brain.
Turns out, getting horny in the summer is a common phenomenon with real scientific reasons behind it, according to multiple researchers. One study from Villanova University found that there was a spike in pornography searches during the months of June and July. Medical experts also believe that people crave a good hump more during this season because the body releases extra positive chemicals, such as serotonin and dopamine, because of the heat and sunshine.
“Hot weather and the sun can increase the libido through neurochemicals that make people feel good. Sunshine also boosts vitamin D, which factors into the production of testosterone.”
