I wonder if this trend might share a causal relationship with the percentage of body surface covered by clothing. I believe this is normally negatively correlated with temperature and that catcalls generally increase with decreased covering. Alternatively, a simple increase in the number of people outdoors, particularly construction workers, could be responsible.

In any event, I really enjoy your blog and I appreciate your observations in matters which I had not previously considered. Thanks a bunch!

Oh, hell, yes. Disgusting. Heaven forbid anyone dress comfortably, or as they want to!

Shouldn't the y axis be something like "temperature discomfort" to include the cat not coming whether the thermometer is too cold or too hot?

I sincerely apologize on behalf of my entire sex. Most of us are really nice and behaved, but the jackasses tend to stand out. They're morons.

a little prudish, but that's a good thing said...

Oskar,

On behalf of women who appreciate your apology, I accept (and appreciate) your apology.

My observation: just because it is visible doesn't mean it needs to be commented on, but OTOH just because you have it doesn't mean it needs to be exposed outside of the privacy of your home. Leaving something to the imagination is not a bad thing!

Ha! That's brilliant, and it makes me feel better. I've been extremely wrathful about street bastards lately.

Have you been to Italy? It must be close to hell.

As a male who does not catcall, I second Oskar's apology on behalf of our sex.

It's definitely the increased number of people on the street. I now live in a city where catcalling is very rare. (But I used to live in New York, which was Hell. Seriously, New York men, grow up.) While catcalling is rare, good weather definitely brings out the creepy, scurrilous types. It's bizarre to feel less comfortable on the street on days when the sun sets at 9pm than when it's pitch black at 5pm.

Also proportional to men in work-boots.

Catcalling is so 1950's.

Modern men oggle.
