The length of your finger could provide clues to your sexuality, according to a study published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior.

Previous studies have suggested that there may be a link between prenatal hormone levels and differences in finger length, with those exposed to higher levels of the hormone testosterone more likely to have "male-typical hands". In the womb, both males and females are exposed to testosterone.

The digit ratio is the ratio of the lengths of different digits or fingers. The 2D:4D ratio is the most studied digit ratio and is calculated by dividing the length of the index finger of a given hand by the length of the ring finger of the same hand. A number of studies have shown a correlation between the 2D:4D digit ratio and various physical and behavioral traits.
