6 Facts About the Female Body That Very Few People Know About

We already know about the incredible endurance of women’s bodies and have heard something about the difference between men and women’s color recognition.

1. Women’s necks are more movable.

Have you ever noticed how women and men turn when they’re called? Try this and you will see that the man turns his whole body and that the woman just turns her head. The reason lies in the muscle structure which is more elastic in women’s bodies.

But, dear ladies, please be careful while you are twisting your heads. According to a study from Loyola University Medical Center, females report neck pain more often than men do.


2. Women have sensitive hearing while sleeping.

This fact is the result of an evolutionary process. Women are sensitive to noises while they asleep so that they’ll be roused by a crying baby. But the good news is that this rule only works for high pitched noises. Speaking in a low register will help to avoid waking up a woman.

And what’s unfair in this situation is that women are also more sensitive to sleep disorders than men.


3. Women are more rational than men.

Despite common opinion that women are more emotional and men are more rational, the reality is quite opposite. A thick cortex has been associated with higher scores on a variety of cognitive and general intelligence tests. And women’s brains have much thicker cortices than men’s do.

Meanwhile, men had higher brain volumes, which plays a broad role in emotions and making decisions.


4. Women form stronger attachments to other people.

The reason why is that women have higher oxytocin levels. Oxytocin is the so-called love hormone. It promotes attachment, solidifies relationships, and eases stress. Oxytocin is also responsible for creating mother-child bonds and even for breastfeeding.
