LOVE AND LUST EXHIBIT CYCLIC VARIATION

LOVE AND LUST ARE SEASONAL,
A NEW GOOGLE STUDY FINDS
www.huffingtonpost.com Real-time tracking by researchers has identified a risqué trend in winter and early summer - people on the Internet looking for love - or at least sex. In a new study published this month in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior researchers tracked Google keyword searches in the United States for pornography, prostitution and dating sites between January 2006 and March 2011. Researchers wanted to gauge the real-time mood of the nation and found that online interest in the mating game peaked around Christmas and early summer. 
This bi-annual cycle isn't unheard of. A 2007 review of research on sexual activity in young people published in the journal Health Education found a six-month cycle for human sexual activity in the United States. Research on the so-called "holiday season effect" and the "summer vacation effect" has involved studying the outcomes of sex, such as births and sexually transmitted infections (STI) - events that occur weeks to months after doing the deed. Scientists have also documented increases in condom sales around Christmas week and during the summer months.

But psychologists Patrick and Charlotte Markey at Villanova University in Pennsylvania and Rutgers University in New Jersey, respectively, wanted to see if they could detect patterns and changes in sexual activity more quickly, especially given health concerns such as STIs. So the psychologists turned to the Web. 
Using Google Trends, the Markeys studied monthly patterns in search terms people used when looking for sex or romantic partners online. They included terms such as "porn," "boobs," "xxx," "call girl," "massage parlor," "eHarmony" and "Match.com." They compared the frequency with which people used the titillating terms with that of neutral searches for pets ("dog," "cat" and "bird"), popular websites ("Facebook" and "ebay"), and car parts ("tires," "brakes" and "windshield"). Patrick Markey was surprised to find the bi-annual trend in pornography searches. Porn-related keyword searches peaked during winter and early summer, a trend not seen with neutral search terms. He hopes his study will be of broader use. "It would be great if these findings could be used to target the timing of safe sex campaigns," he wrote.

A recent study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior journal has found that people looking for a connection on the internet are more likely to feel frisky in the winter and early summer. Researchers used Google trends to track keyword searches from January 2006 to March 2011 in the United States. They targeted words like pornography, prostitution, and various names of dating sites. Another study conducted in 2007 found that there is a six month cycle for sexual activity in young people in the United States. The media should stop using the words "love" and "lust" as synonyms, because they are not. In fact, Lust, which is selfish and demanding, is the opposite to Love.


WHAT DO THE VEDIC TEACHINGS TELL US? 
Lust is all about getting and taking from others. It is never satisfied and is compared to fire. ... Many narratives in the Vedic literature illustrate this point. ... My own experience of being frustrated and unfulfilled in material relationships attracted me to these ancient histories and the philosophy embedded within them. They so clearly mapped out the pitfalls of a life dedicated to finding pleasure through our senses. The Vedic literature also described an alternative: Bhakti-yoga, the art and science of reawakening our love for God. That love lies dormant within us, just as love for a man or a woman lies dormant within a child, only to be awakened during puberty. Our love for Krsna will automatically awaken when He is convinced that we want it more than anything else. Furthermore, by loving God we come to love everyone, because everyone is part of Him. In the beginning, this kind of love requires practice, but it will eventually be spontaneous.
