Spotting Cheaters On Sight And Other Superpowers You Didn’t Know You Had As A Woman
Patriarchy and periods have given being a woman a bad rap. But being a member of the fairer sex actually comes with some perks. Perks that many of us aren’t even aware of.
We’ve discovered a host of superpowers that most women didn’t realize they had. From being able to spot a cheater on sight to seeing more colors than anyone on the planet, and being able to multitask in ways that men couldn’t even imagine even if they wanted to (sorry guys), these feminine powers are pretty amazing. Read on to find more ways that being a woman can actually be kind of cool and let us know what you think about those “powers.”
You Can Turn Food Into An Aphrodisiac
Need to get your motor running? Women’s brains share arousal and food craving centers. Skipping a meal and then thinking about your favorite food could possibly turn the heat up in the bedroom.
You Can Control How Much Pain You Feel
Have a potentially uncomfortable appointment with your dentist or doctor? Schedule during the last week of your cycle (days 23 through 28) when estrogen levels are lowest to minimize your discomfort.
Your Body Gets Better At Sex
A woman’s clitoris grows throughout her life. And by the time she hits menopause, it’s almost three times as large as it was when she was a teenager! In fact, women over 40 achieve orgasm quicker than others.
You Can Control How Attractive You Are
And not just with makeup. Getting off of birth control pills can make you more attractive to the opposite sex.
You’re Twice As Good At Remembering
There’s a reason why you’re better at bringing up old ish. Women are better at remembering things compared to men.
You Have Natural Protection Against STDs
It’s why we have so much pubic hair. But shaving it off, while fashionable, puts you at a higher risk of contracting the STDs that condoms don’t protect against like herpes and genital warts.
Having Children Makes You Live Longer
Women naturally live longer than men anyway. But some studies suggest that having children can make you even better at fighting off disease that keeps you around longer.
You Have A Super Sense Of Smell
Have a crush the rest of your senses can’t explain? It probably boils down to smell. Women are more likely than men to be driven by their noses when it comes to attraction.
In fact, women are so ruled by their noses that we’re more likely to have sex in summer when our olfactory glands are in overdrive.
You’re Biologically Better At Expressing Emotion
Women are biologically more prone to shedding tears, which is surprisingly good for you.
You Have Listening Powers
Women listen with both sides of their brains while men listen with just their left, which makes us much better at professions that require communication.
We Look Younger Longer
The daily trauma of shaving and effects of testosterone allegedly give men thicker lines that are more likely to show, as well as spots. And I can’t forget to mention the benefits of makeup for women!
You’re Better At Seeing Color
There’s a reason you’re in love with that red winter coat. Women are better at seeing color than men — and about 40 percent of us can see reds and oranges in a more vibrant way than the average person.
You Can Spot Cheaters On Sight
And we’re right about 62 percent of the time.
