Gender difference in thermal comfort for Chinese people was investigated through two laboratory experiments. Both subjective assessment and objective measurement were taken during the experiment. Skin temperature (17 points) and heart rate variability (HRV) were measured in one of the experiment. Our results show that there are gender differences in thermal comfort for Chinese people. Correlation of thermal sensation votes and air temperature and vapor pressure shows that females are more… 
Investigation of Gender Differences in Sleeping Comfort at Different Environmental Temperatures
TLDR
The results showed that females would prefer a higher ambient temperature during sleep than the men, whereas finger skin temperature and finger blood flow were significantly lower in females than in males and the gender differences in preferred sleeping temperature could be related to these physiological characteristics.
Gender differences in thermal comfort and mental performance at different vertical air temperatures
TLDR
The effect of the unequal thermal environment, where air temperature closer to the ground was lower than above, on skin temperature and thermal discomfort for females was significantly higher compared to males.
Indoor Neutral Temperature Range using Temperature and Humidity Perception Assessment
Purpose: Indoor thermal comfort can be identified by combination of temperature, humidity, and air flow, etc. However, most thermal indexes in regard to thermal comfort are temperature dominant since
Use of mean skin temperature in evaluation of individual thermal comfort for a person in a sleeping posture under steady thermal environment
A new model to evaluate individual thermal comfort using mean skin temperature was proposed. Twenty-two subjects’ local skin temperatures were measured in a sleeping posture at air temperatures of
The influence of different cooling techniques and gender on thermal perception
The use of low exergy cooling concepts in the built environment can reduce the reliance upon high-quality energy sources. However, the application of such cooling systems can result in whole-body and
Gender differences in thermal comfort in a hot-humid climate
Thirty female and 30 male college students, who had naturally acclimatized to hot-humid climate, were exposed to seven temperature/humidity combinations in a climate chamber, and they were surveyed

Ambient temperatures preferred by young European males and females at rest.
TLDR
The subjects spent about one hour seeking a preferred temperature (transition period), which subsequently turned out to be unsteady in most cases, and the multiple regression equations differed markedly between men and women.
Thermal comfort in warm, humid atmospheres; observations in a warship in the tropics.
TLDR
It is proposed that the upper level of warmth to be accepted in the design of ventilation systems for accommodation spaces should be those conditions when either more than 80% of persons feel reasonably comfortable or less than 20% observe the presence of unevaporated sweat on their skin, which corresponds to effective temperatures of 79 and 78° F.
