As crazy as it may sound, female body is full of mysteries. Yes, we are living in a modern world filled with scientific breakthroughs and technological advancements, nevertheless, when it comes to women and what’s hidden inside their bodies and minds, there’s still a lot we don’t know and can’t explain. At this point, though, we can all agree that women aren’t made of sugar and spice and all things nice – we don’t poop rainbows, smell like Chanel 24/7, and wake up with full makeup on. Meanwhile, here are 9 facts about the female body you’ve probably never heard before.
Female necks are super flexible
You might or might not have noticed the way men and women turn their heads when they hear something – guys tend to react with their whole bodies, while ladies just turn their heads. Our necks are actually more flexible! Which is a cool thing, but it also means that we get more neck pain according to certain studies.
Women are amazing with words
We can all agree that girls are chatty in general, but it doesn’t end with spending half a day on the phone with your best friend. It appears women have better language skills due to larger frontal and temporal areas of the brain. There’s also the so-called ‘language protein’ FOXP2 we have in abundance that helps us talk around 20,000 words per day, whereas for guys the average amount is around 7,000.
Women get attached easily
It is both a blessing and a curse, really. Because of our high oxytocin levels we tend to form stronger bonds and get easily attached to people, animals, children, friends, that teddy berry you used to own 20 years ago or a bucket of ice cream waiting for you at home. Yep, it’s that bad. But without this ‘love hormone’ we wouldn’t be able to form and support relationships the way we do. Oxytocin is also responsible for breastfeeding.
