Why Women Are Always Cold by Ross Pomeroy.

Women complain of feeling cold at much higher rates than men. Here, myriad anecdotes parlay neatly into actual evidence. In a 2012 review of the scientific literature, Sami Karjalainen of the VTT Technical Research Centre in Finland found that, “Females are more sensitive than males to a deviation from an optimal temperature and express more dissatisfaction, especially in cooler conditions.”

This dissatisfaction occurs everywhere: in bed, at the movie theater, outside, at work, etc. As easy as it would be for men to simply dismiss women’s complaints as overstated, there are actually a lot of physiological reasons why their gripes are legitimate.
