The lunar cycle seems to affect women of all shapes and sizes. As such, the Mid-Autumn Festival is a great time for love as the fairer sex shows heightened sexual desire during a full moon, China Press reported.

It quoted a book titled The Lunar Effect: Biological Tides and Human Emotions by Arnold L. Lieber, which said the magnetic field of the moon affects human body cells.

As the human body consists of 80 per cent water, the lunar activity affects the liquid in the human body like a biological tide, just like ocean tides, it said.

According to a survey by a French dating website, visits to the site, including information search, were unusually high during a full moon compared to other times in a month.

Another survey involving 6,000 women worldwide also showed that 37 per cent of the respondents said that making love in the moonlight makes them happier, and they are more confident about their figure.

They also said they are more likely to reach orgasm by having sex in the moonlight.
