Not sure where you're going with your reply, but, for clarity, if the moms were "horny and masculine", and the daughters were "masculine," then the activity during pregnancy is likely spurious correlation, and the "masculine" traits are just genetically hereditary, not due to mom's behavior during pregnancy.

edit: and that kind of rational, critical analysis is what's missing in so much of the "science" we see nowadays. Thoroughgoing experimental design and cautious formulation of conclusions. There are still millions of people in the world who think that eggs raise serum cholesterol and that salt hardens arteries, precisely because of scientists preaching sloppy conclusions from sloppy science in the 1960s and 1970s.
