Ovulation equals better tips

Filed under: Your Pregnancy, Work Life, Medical Conditions

If you're trying to get pregnant and want to know when you're most fertile, perhaps you should taking up stripping at a gentleman's club and monitor your tips. At least, that's one way of doing it. It turns out that, according to a new study chronicled in Psychology Today, strippers make significantly more in tips when they were most fertile than when they were not ovulating -- and you can totally forget about the period when they had their period.

Studying the women working in local clubs, Psychologist Geoffrey Miller of the University of New Mexico found that the dancers' tips skyrocketed to $70 per hour from a normal $50 per hour when they were ovulating. They also found that tips dropped to $35 per hour when the women were menstruating.

Okay, so no one is going to take up exotic dancing just to find out when they're most likely to get pregnant, but it does have implications beyond the world of men's clubs. Any woman working in a tip-based service industry can take advantage of this knowledge by working more at that time of the month. As Miller points out, "It might help to know about this so that you can exploit these effects."
