Can someone actually say that a woman smells the best at one point of a month that others? Studies seem to indicate so. Though I believe that we as men are always in the mood for making love, studies seem to indicate that the most attractive scent that a woman might secrete would be between the first day of the menstrual cycle and the ovulation period.
While it can perhaps be stated that men generally hate the idea of women entering their periods, (I do not think there is anything to be disgusted about, nonetheless, and find this extreme ooh-la-la about periods extremely amusing!) this is another fact that has emerged from the study. This states that men least like the smell of women when they are in the follicular-bleeding-phase. That is not to take away from the fact that some of these same males would still be in the mood for love-making in this phase.
Personally speaking, I think that the whole study lacks concrete evidence, primarily because the group making the study did not take a big enough cross section of data.
Having dealt with sociological studies myself, I think that the studies in which the cross section being dealt with is small might have skewed results. I think that the whole study, in which there were just 48 males being tested, would be inadequate for such findings. I believe that the findings would have been much more conclusive had the cross section also dealt with a greater cross section of men in different age groups.
I have a suspicion that for men who are prone to living in hard conditions, where the sights and the smells are different and much more difficult that the world in which the “normal people” live in, the people may be accustomed to such smells such as that of a woman undergoing periods, and under the conditions, may also indulge in sexual activity with her.
On a personal note, there is nothing unclean about a woman having periods and it is perfectly safe for her (and him) to make love.
However, it is not for me to decide whether a statistic is right or wrong. Statistics tell us a story. Whether they apply to anyone as an individual is an entirely different cup of tea.
For those who are interested, the story about the findings can be found here.
