The pheromone machine in the East Dorm Lounge is solar powered!  
Or if you want to be all scientific and stuff, Bright Light May Boost Testosterone in Men

Of course this doesn't really explain the effect spring has on girls too, however according to the article the thing that actually gets increased is "luteinizing hormone", which in turn produces testosterone in men, and has some effect on the reproductive cycle in women as well, so they might find a similar effect if they actually did the tests. (From what i can tell the article said that tests had been done showing that LH helped regulate ovulation cycles in women, but said nothing about a direct effect on sex drive)

Women produce testostorone too.

Just in much smaller dosages.

I know, however the article said that LH produces more testosterone in men, and that it regulates ovulation in women, it doesn't say anything about LH producing more testosterone in women.
