DW often describes herself as a "chocloholic" however I don't ever recall being denied connubial bliss in favor of a Snickers bar.

I voted Yes and Yes.

Ooops, it wasn't a poll. :facepalm:

:laugh:

Funny you mention this. I'm about to sit down to watch the new David Bowie documentary on the BBC, with a cup of tea and a small bar of dark chocolate with almonds - and I'm not even a girl.

I'm celebrating my girly side :laugh:

New prenatal test to determine the baby's gender (... the female fetuses more. They showed a greater increase in fetal movements and more episodic accelerations in their heart rate....):

W2R 05-29-2013 05:21 PM

Ah, chocolate..... :)

If my doctor ever tells me (knock on wood!) that I have only a week to live, then I plan to spend the week consuming about 100 pounds of the best chocolate I can find. Might as well die happy. ;D

Moemg 05-29-2013 05:31 PM

Frayne ,
Your post is hysterically funny !

IBWino 05-29-2013 05:34 PM

Must be a girl thing. I'd take a pint of IPA over a bar of the finest chocolate any day. My wife, however, would take the chocolate.

Arifriekinel 05-29-2013 08:54 PM

Wonder if it's directly related to estrogen. I've never been a huge fan of chocolate, but I'm the only girl out of 4 kids.

I've always had hormone imbalances that have surfaced through other issues. I wonder if not liking chocolate is a symptom of that, and, if so, less than average response in females could be a prenatal indicator of hormone imbalances. All hypotheses that need to be tested, but interesting indications of such a simple study that has raised questions I've never cared to ask.

That's an excellent hypothesis, but the fetal study does not support it. Male and female fetuses would both be exposed to similar amounts of maternal estrogen, and their own reproductive organs would not be producing much in fetal life, so that does not explain the differences between boy and girl fetuses in the study. Of course estrogen could explain a lot of things in adult women!

Walt34 05-30-2013 04:31 AM

This explains a lot.

DW and I are coming up on 25 years of marriage and we've never kept secrets from each other. Except, of course, in matters involving chocolate.

And I know that when she's upset the best thing to do is make her a chocolate cake. Even a bag of M&M's will suffice if pressed for time.

Walt, thank you for being a feminist in the best way! :flowers:

Ah, I wasn't sure if female fetuses also produced estrogen, since they had said it was hormone-related in the article. I don't know a ton about fetal development beyond the various physical stages.

For the sake of your marital happiness, I sure hope you meant that in the positive tone and it's one hell of a good cake! ;)

There are plenty married women who would say that, if for some reason they decided to be truthful.

I think the average man would take almost any woman in preference to any cake. But of course, ymmv. A woman will never give you sugar diabetes.
