I have historically dated primarily red-heads and ended up marrying one. My first love, my wife, even my current boss-lady.

Serious business - why are you red-headed, truly red-headed, gals so crazy (in comparison to womenz of other hair type)!? Is there some kind of scientific evidence? Seriously. (crazy in good ways as well as bad, of course)

It's a pain being ginger




People with red hair are more susceptible to pain, according to doctors.
Research carried out in the United States suggests that redheads need 20% more anaesthesia than people with other hair colour.

Doctors believe that genes which are responsible for red hair also have a role in managing pain.



In a nutshell, redheads are likely to experience more pain

Dr Edwin Liem

They said the findings could have important implications for patients who are undergoing surgery.

Dr Edwin Liem, of the University of Louisville in Kentucky, studied the effects of an inhaled anaesthetic called desflurane on women between the ages of 19 and 40.

Reflex movement

Their physical responses to the drug were closely monitored. In particular, Dr Liem looked out for unconscious reflex arm or leg movements in response to painful stimulation.

He found that women with red hair needed more of the drug to stop these reflex movements compared to those with dark or blond hair.

"In a nutshell, redheads are likely to experience more pain from a given stimulus and therefore require more anaesthesia to alleviate that pain," he said.

Dr Liem said the findings could be explained by genetics, and in particular variations in the melanocortin 1 receptor which is linked to red hair.

He said the discovery could help scientists to find out more about how the body manages pain.

"Since red hair can be traced to particular mutations in the melanocortin 1 receptor, we now have the opportunity to evaluate central nervous system pathways that may influence or mediate anaesthetic requirement," Dr Liem said.

"Investigating the role of melanocortin system in the central nervous system is thus likely to help us understand fundamental questions such as which systems in the brain produce unconsciousness and which modulate pain perception."

He added: "Red hair is the first visible human trait, or phenotype, that is linked to anaesthetic requirement."

Dr Liem said scientists do not fully understand how anaesthesia works but suggested that this latest study could offer clues.

"The art and science of anaesthesiology is choosing the right dose," he said.

"There is very little difference between the effective dose and the toxic dose of most anaesthetics.

"Patients can awaken during surgery if they are given insufficient anaesthesia or suffer cardiac and pulmonary complications when they are given too much."

The findings were presented to a meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists in Orlando, Florida.

oh and the post about redheads and pain is complete BULLSHIT

My wife is the most pain tolerant person I have ever met, with the exception of my youngest son, who is also a red head!

The wifey has taken kidney stones in stride among other painful things, acted as if NATURAL childbirth wasn't all that bad.

My youngest son used to let his older brother drag him around by his HAIR....said it was fun....

Actually, my bride is a redhead. Her doctor told us it is true. The research proves it. Now, some people can tolerate pain better than others....

I think redheads are amazing...but, they DO HAVE A LOW FLASHPOINT!

However, that passion is good in the bedroom!

My first true love was a red-head. Two of my former fiances were red-heads. Wife has auburn hair.

Yummy. I'm hoping that if my wife ever finds me a mistress that she is a red-head as well...

Auburn with serious freckles here and a red-headed son... Our family tends to be resistant to pain and pain medicines. The anesthesia thing may be true, but there are other things (like increased cortisol levels) that can reduce the sensation of pain.

doo doo brown hair = the colors you see depends on the light I am in. Oh and the season - it tends to lighten up in the summer. Sometimes it looks reddish brown, sometimes it looks blondish brown, sometimes it looks brownish brown. Who needs hair color when you've got doo doo brown hair. Doh.

See:

Bad scan, but the pic looks pretty brownish:

Dear Wedge, please be careful. If you don't quit calling Hades "Mr. Persephone" you might end up cleaning up after Cerberus for all eternity. Get it straight: He's Hades, I'm Persephone, and we have two little hellions.

Ps, yeah, that's him.

Well, there is no rest for the wicked.

No need to lock when edits will do. Guys, this is the Women Shooters forum--not GD. Different rules apply--much more strict here. If you wish to post here, please do so in a manner which would be appropriate in front of your mother or grandmother. Thank you.

Thanks beekeeper! I like your rule of thumb there. I wonder how those guys would feel if someone said those things to their grandmother??

Right here. I wish I could talk with some of you guys in a respectful, serious manner about the frigity vs. "randiness" of females of such persuasion. I have questions based on prior experiences

OK, I'll start the redhead wife confession.

Here is our current issue.

We are getting a new puppy on Sunday. Our backyard was all rock and we added about 800 square feet of sod grass for the dog to play on.

I want to buy a lawnmower and weedeater to care for it. The wife says no way we are going to hire someone to care for it. We have called several people and no one is interested in mowing our little patch of grass every week. So I tell the wife I'm going to buy a mower. She explodes. Where are you going to keep all that stuff? I'll get a little shed for the yard. No way she says and it's not going on my side of the garage. Hmmm. They are just so so................
