Parasite turns women into sex kittens

Australia news:
A common parasite can increase a women's attractiveness to the opposite sex but also make men more stupid, an Australian researcher says.

About 40 per cent of the world's population is infected with Toxoplasma gondii, including about eight million Australians. ...

"In short, it can make men behave like alley cats and women behave like sex kittens''.

Dr Boulter said the recent Czech Republic research was not conclusive, but was backed up by animal studies that found infection also changes the behaviour of mice.
Hmmm. I've noticed the correlation, but I thought that the female attractiveness caused the male stupidity.
