It ushered in the 1960s sexual revolution and gave women control over their own fertility.

But the Pill may also have changed women's taste in men, according to a study.

Scientists say the hormones in the oral contraceptive suppress a woman's interest in masculine men and make boyish men more attractive. Although the change occurs for just a few days each month, it may have been highly influential since use of the Pill began more than 40 years ago. MORE HERE.


Classic men: In the Fifties, more masculine men like Burt Lancaster and Kurt Douglas were considered attractive

This article is bullshit - the pill has nothing to do with it. All the women I know who like pretty & boyish men were 1) never on the pill. 2) on the pill well after they had made up their sexual preferences.

The mega-stardom of Cary Grant and Rock Hudson occurred well before 1962 when oral contraception became available.
