If you're familiar with a supposed correlation between the onset of cold weather and people coupling up, you may not realize it has a name—"Cuffing Season" (I didn't).


Fusion's Love & Sex writer Taryn Hillin doubts this seeming trend is biological, and after speaking to a psychologist, health expert, and sex therapist, concludes "Cuffing" may have more to do with social pressure and cultural traditions than anything else.  Read Taryn's debunking here.
