The length of your finger can provide clues to your sexuality, according to a study published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior .
In women, the index (second) finger and ring (fourth) fingers usually have the same length, while in men most often there is a greater difference between the two (shorter index fingers and longer ring fingers).
Previous studies have suggested that there may be a link between prenatal hormone levels and differences in finger length, with those exposed to higher levels of hormone testosterone more likely to have “male typical hands.” In the uterus, both men and women are exposed to testosterone.
For their survey, a team from the University of Essex in Great Britain reviewed sets of identical twins (1
4 male and 18 female) with different sexualities, finding differences in their hands.
Among the female twins, the bisexual or lesbian sisters on average showed significantly more “male” finger-length relationships compared to their straight counterparts. During the twins, the bisexual or gay brothers had more “male” hands than the straight, contrary to what the researchers expected, but the difference was not significant.
