Does transition affect attraction?


Transitioning can indeed affect attraction, as discussed in the context of hormonal influences and preferences. For instance, it was noted that women, when influenced by hormones like those in birth control, show different preferences for masculine traits. During ovulation, they tend to prefer faces that exhibit higher levels of testosterone, which are typically associated with masculinity. Conversely, when on birth control, which regulates and stabilizes hormone levels thereby simulating a non-ovulatory state, women often prefer less masculine or lower testosterone faces. This indicates that hormone levels, which are significantly influenced during transition through hormone replacement therapy, can affect attraction preferences 1.
