A bizarre sliding scale phenomenon where the opposite sex becomes more desirable as their numbers decrease in proportion to the same sex in a small geographic area. The greater the difference in proportion, the greater the opposite sex's desirability is increased. First identified on the Monterey Peninsula in California in 1989, there were almost 100,000 single men at Fort Ord and other military installations which greatly increased the number of single men compared to single women.
Dude, take her out of this sausage fest and she's nothing more than a four, maybe 5 at best. The Monterey Effect strikes again.

Thanks to the Monterey Effect, even the most disgusting land-a-tee can get laid.
