Sex Dept. of “Research”

This looks like money well spent:
In a revealing study, University of New Mexico researchers (three altruistic guys) recruited 18 subjects (scantily clad women dancers) to log their work shifts, earnings and menstrual cycles (phone numbers, too?) on a Web site for two months, or about 5,300 lap dances. The naked truth: participants scored $335 per five-hour shift while ovulating compared with $260 per shift during the luteal phase after ovulation and $185 while menstruating. The dancers’ scientifically gyrating pelvises provided the first direct evidence for human estrus—the equivalent of a baboon’s bright red rump—the group reported in Evolution & Human Behavior.
