bad news for men with lopsided smiles, goofy grins and jug ears: their wives and girlfriends may be fantasising about a fling with someone handsome.[/font]

[font=Georgia, serif]Steven Gangestad and colleagues at the University of New Mexico asked 54 heterosexual women about their dreams, desires and ovulatory cycles. He also submitted their partners to a series of intimate measurements: the size of their ears, wrists, fingers, elbows, ankles and feet.[/font]
[font=Georgia, serif]And then, he reports today in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, he compared the statistics of male symmetry with the lascivious dreams of their partners. Women coupled with men whose ears or elbows did not match were more likely, when at their most fertile, to start fantasising about other men. Those partnered with symmetrically proportioned males were more likely to stay faithful, even in their dreams.[/font]

Both women and their mothers expect potential dating partners to meet a minimum level of physical attractiveness regardless of their personality, new research published in Evolutionary Psychological Science suggests.

In the study, 80 women and their mothers were presented with photographs of three men: an attractive man, moderately attractive man, and unattractive man. Each photograph was also paired with one of three personality profiles. The women were asked “how attractive do you find this person” and “how favorably do you rate his personal description.” They were also asked to rate the person as a potential dating partner for themselves or their daughters.

[size=xx-large]The researchers found that physical attractiveness took priority over the personality traits. Both women and their mothers preferred the attractive and moderately attractive men to the unattractive man. Even when unattractive men possessed the most desirable traits, the woman and their mothers rarely rated them as good dating partners. But while the women preferred the attractive man slightly more than the moderately attractive man, mothers preferred the moderately attractive man to the attractive man as a partner for their daughter[/size]

[font=medium-content-serif-font, Georgia, Cambria,]This study was conducted to quantify the Tinder socio-economic prospects for males based on the percentage of females that will “like” them. Female Tinder usage data was collected and statistically analyzed to determine the inequality in the Tinder economy. It was determined that [/font][font=medium-content-serif-font, Georgia, Cambria,]the bottom 80% of men (in terms of attractiveness) are competing for the bottom 22% of women and the top 78% of women are competing for the top 20% of men.[/font][font=medium-content-serif-font, Georgia, Cambria,] The Gini coefficient for the Tinder economy based on “like” percentages was calculated to be 0.58. This means that the Tinder economy has more inequality than 95.1% of all the world’s national economies. In addition, it was determined that a man of average attractiveness would be “liked” by approximately 0.87% (1 in 115) of women on Tinder. Also, a formula was derived to estimate a man’s attractiveness level based on the percentage of “likes” he receives on Tinder[/font]

[font=medium-content-serif-font, Georgia, Cambria,]

[size=xx-large][font=medium-content-serif-font, Georgia, Cambria,][size=xx-large][font=medium-content-serif-font, Georgia, Cambria,]rate an incredible 80% of guys as worse-looking than medium. Very harsh. On the other hand, when it comes to actual messaging, women shift their expectations only just slightly ahead of the curve, which is a healthier pattern than guys’ pursuing the all-but-unattainable. But with the basic ratings so out-of-whack, the two curves together suggest some strange possibilities for the female thought process, the most salient of which is that the average-looking woman has convinced herself that the vast majority of males aren’t good enough for her, but she then goes right out and messages them anyway.[/font]

[font=Georgia, serif]In one experiment, the researchers chose 376 men at random from high school yearbooks from 1977 to 1980, rated them by physical attractiveness and found out how long their marriages lasted. The researchers explain, “Each of the photos was rated by two independent female coders on a scale from 1 (very unattractive) to 10 (very attractive).” The men got a score of 3.5 on average. Eesh.[/font]

Also, dig a little deeper into the female reproductive cycle, particularly concealed ovulation and responses to men/testosterone exposure based on the position of a her cycle.

Its also interesting how the pill affects that shit

Basically a lot of women are non stop on the pill since 13 - which also has an impact on mating

. A few years ago, neuroscientists at Duke University wired 22 college-aged women to MRI brain scanners, showing each photos of male faces of varying attractiveness, followed by written blurbs about the moral behaviour of the men they had just viewed. Some of the written information was positive (“he saved his sister from drowning”); some not so much (“he raped a little girl”). The researchers then watched to see what parts of the women’s brains lit up as they took in the information. In doing so, they may have pinpointed the physical source of the beautiful-is-good stereotype.

It’s a section of the brain called the medial orbitofrontal cortex—centre of the head, right between the eyes. In the Duke experiments, it surged with neural activity, not only when the women viewed the faces of attractive men, but also when they viewed the positive statements. To the researchers, this suggested overlap in what are supposed to be two distinct functions—judging attractiveness and assessing moral goodness

So, essentially, we appear to be confused, possibly to our own detriment. If our responses to dishy humans occur in some instantaneous jumble of subconscious neural activity, how are we to protect ourselves from the handsome devils and femmes fatales of this world? We’re not, say biologists, because evolution isn’t about right and wrong. At bottom, says Randy Thornhill, a professor of evolutionary biology at the University of New Mexico (UNM), it’s about prosaic things like who’s most resistant to disease, or who will sire the healthiest children. “We’re very selective about what we pull into consciousness,” says Thornhill, who has studied the propensity of physically attractive people to cheat on their mates. “Attractiveness judgments are made very, very quickly. These are not rational processes. We’re looking for markers of genetic quality.”

Previous research has shown that women’s mate preferences change across the ovulatory cycle in a number of ways. The leading explanation for these changes—the good genes hypothesis—predicts that women should prefer presumed markers of genetic benefits (“good genes”) most strongly when they are fertile and evaluating men as possible short-term mates. Research testing this hypothesis has almost exclusively examined preferences for purported markers of good genes. Little is known about how preferences for men who display traits valued in long-term, investing mates (e.g., warmth and faithful- ness) change across the cycle. The authors had women at different points in their ovulatory cycle rate videotapes of men in terms of how attractive they found each man as a short-term and long-term mate. The authors then examined how women’s preferences for traits typically valued in long-term and/or short-term mates varied according to women’s fertility status. The results supported the good genes hypothesis. Implications of these findings for models of human mating are discussed. 


[hr]
[font=Arial, sans-serif]








Ovulation has been shown to impact a woman's mating preferences. For instance, women in the fertile phase of their menstrual cycle favor more masculine traits, such as a deep voice or manly face, characteristics associated with the hormone testosterone, studies have found. Other research suggests fertile women are attracted to men with high levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which may be involved in stronger immune systems.[/font]


[font=Arial, sans-serif]In the new study, researchers tested how women's sexual scent preferences changed depending on men's levels of testosterone and cortisol. Male volunteers were given T-shirts to wear for two consecutive nights, during which time they were prohibited from using scented soaps or detergents; drinking or smoking; or eating garlic, onion, green chiles, strong cheeses and other pungent foods.


[/font]
[font=Arial, sans-serif]Then, female volunteers sniffed the men's shirts and rated the pleasantness, sexiness and intensity of the smells (on scales from 1 to 10). The women also completed a questionnaire about their stage in their menstrual cycles and whether they were using hormonal contraception.[/font]
[font=Arial, sans-serif]The researchers took saliva samples from the men to measure hormone levels of testosterone and cortisol.[/font]
[font=Arial, sans-serif]Women who were at the most fertile stage of their menstrual cycles preferred the smell of men with higher testosterone, rating these "manly" shirts as the most pleasant and sexiest, results showed. The women showed no preference for the smells of men with higher cortisol levels. Without taking the women's fertility into account, neither hormone had an influence on how attractive the men smelled.[/font]

"Quantifying the strength and form of sexual selection on men's traits"

http://putslab.la.psu.edu/documents/Hill et al 2013 Evol Hum Behav.pdf



and remember these outtakes:

- Men's short-term attractiveness(rated by the women) was negatively associated with mating success. (WOMEN ARE RETARDED FUCKS)

- Height was negatively associated with mating success(despite the women saying they prefer taller men, just as with attractiveness)

- Facial masculinity was slightly negatively associated with slaying (despite women once again saying they liked it in their short term partners).

- Girth was significantly associated with mating success - girth explained as: "We consequently standardized and summed biceps, chest, and shoulder circumference, and weight to produce the composite variable “girth” "


- Perceived fighting success (rated by other men in the frat) was associated with mating success.


Remember this sentence from the authors:

"Nevertheless, perhaps women rate men's sexual attractiveness differently from how they ultimately choose. For example, attractiveness ratings may not adequately capture women's differential resistance to men's seduction attempts."

Conclusion: Women can rate attractiveness logically, but their pussy ultimately decides who it wets for, and this is seemingly a completely primal subconscious animalistic procedure.

[font=Arial, sans-serif]The link between [/font][font=Arial, sans-serif]testosterone and hotness[/font][font=Arial, sans-serif] was strongest in men with low levels of the stress hormone cortisol, suggesting that stress might take a toll on the immune system, and thus women's ratings of attractiveness.[/font]
just clicked the link and it literally says the opposite of your quote claims it says. it actually says cortisol means lower attraction like we would've guessed

The existence of men has long puzzled scientists. Sexual reproduction is inefficient and costly, yet the majority of multicellular species opt for this method to keep their genes going. So why do men exist? Researchers from the [size=xx-large]University of East Angliahttps://www.uea.ac.uk/ (UAE) believe they may have finally cracked it, suggesting that the evolutionary force known as ‘sexual selection’ plays a key role in improving population health and protecting us against extinction.[/size]
The study, published in the journal Nature, looked at Tribolium flour beetles to understand why most multicellular organisms rely on sex to reproduce. Under controlled laboratory conditions, researchers studied 50 generations of beetles over a ten year period and tested the impact of sexual selection. Famously theorized by Charles Darwin, sexual selection is a process whereby males compete for a chance to reproduce and females choose which male to reproduce with.
"Almost all multicellular species on earth reproduce using sex, but its existence isn't easy to explain because sex carries big burdens, the most obvious of which is that only half of your offspring—daughters—will actually produce offspring. Why should any species waste all that effort on sons?” lead researcher Professor [size=xx-large]Matt Gagehttps://www.uea.ac.uk/biological-sciences/people/profile/m-gage, from UEA's School of Biological Sciences, said in a statement


[/size]
"We wanted to understand how Darwinian selection can allow this widespread and seemingly wasteful reproductive system to persist, when a system where all individuals produce offspring without sex—as in all-female asexual populations—would be a far more effective route to reproduce greater numbers of offspring," [size=xx-large]he addedhttp://phys.org/news/2015-05-population-benefits-sexual-males.html.[/size]
The researchers found that when sexual selection was removed and beetles were paired up into monogamous couples, the population's health declined rapidly and the bugs were wiped out by the 10th generation. Conversely, beetles that had a strong influence on sexual selection, where intense competition saw 90 males trying to compete to reproduce with only 10 females, were more resilient to extinction.
"To be good at out-competing rivals and attracting partners in the struggle to reproduce, an individual has to be good at most things, so sexual selection provides an important and effective filter to maintain and improve population genetic health,” [size=xx-large]saidhttps://www.uea.ac.uk/about/-/population-benefits-of-sexual-selection-explain-the-existence-of-males?icn=homepage-banner&ici=180515_sexual-selectionGage. "Our findings provide direct support for the idea that sex persists as a dominant mode of reproduction because it allows sexual selection to provide these important genetic benefits."[/size]
The study suggests that sexual selection plays a crucial role in sifting out harmful genetic mutations, as competition means females are less likely to mate with genetically inferior individuals. Even after 20 generations of inbreeding, the study found that the populations that were strongly influenced by sexual selection had a higher fitness and were able to maintain population health and avoid extinction.

3. Factors contributing to the attractiveness of a man
[/font]



[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Appearance and hygiene (shoulder/hip ratio, muscularity, tan, skin color, odor, clothes)[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Hughes&Gallup: Sex differences in morphological predictors of sexual behavior: Shoulder to hip and waist to hip ratios (2003) “We investigated sex differences in shoulder to hip ratios (SHR) and waist to hip ratios (WHR), and their relationships to different features of sexual behavior. Males with high SHR and females with low WHR reported sexual intercourse at an earlier age, more sexual partners, more extra-pair copulations (EPC), and having engaged in more instances of intercourse with people who were involved in another relationship (i.e., having themselves been EPC partners).”[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Frederick&Haselton: Why Is Muscularity Sexy? Tests of the Fitness Indicator Hypothesis (2007) “Across three studies, when controlling for other characteristics (e.g., body fat), muscular men rate their bodies as sexier to women (partial rs = .49-.62) and report more lifetime sex partners (partial rs = .20-.27), short-term partners (partial rs = .25-.28), and more affairs with mated women (partial r = .28).”[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Broadstock et al. Effects of Suntan on Judgements of Healthiness and Attractiveness by Adolescents (1992) “Results indicate that a medium tan is perceived as healthiest and most attractive, and “no tan” is perceived as both least healthy and attractive.”[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Stephen et al. Cross-cultural effects of color, but not morphological masculinity, on perceived attractiveness of men’s faces (2012) “For Caucasian faces rated 255 by Caucasian raters, greater attractiveness was predicted by increased yellowness 256 (b*; β=0.658; p=0.032) and decreased lightness (L*; β=-0.385; p=0.032) of the face”[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Lee et al: Genetic Factors That Increase Male Facial Masculinity Decrease Facial Attractiveness of Female Relatives (2013) “However, we also found that masculinity of male faces is unrelated to their attractiveness and that facially masculine men tend to have facially masculine, less-attractive sisters.”[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Kerr et al. Odors and the perception of hygiene. (2005) “For example, a hypothetical person whose clothes smell of pine was rated as relatively more successful, intelligent, sociable, sanitary, and attractive than one whose clothes smelled of lemon, onion, or smoke.”[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Havlicek et al. Women's preference for dominant male odour: effects of menstrual cycle and relationship status (2006) “Here, we show that women in the fertile phase of their cycle prefer body odour of males who score high on a questionnaire-based dominance scale”[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Thornhill&Gangestad: The Scent of Symmetry: A Human Sex Pheromone that Signals Fitness? (1999) “In both sexes, facial attractiveness (as judged from photos) appears to predict body scent attractiveness to the opposite sex. Women’s preference for the scent associated with men’s facial attractiveness is greatest when their fertility is highest across the menstrual cycle.”[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Elliot et al. Red, rank, and romance in women viewing men. (2010) “Specifically, in a series of 7 experiments we demonstrate that women perceive men to be more attractive and sexually desirable when seen on a red background and in red clothing, and we additionally show that status perceptions are responsible for this red effect.”[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Mautz et al. Penis size interacts with body shape and height to influence male attractiveness (2012) (youtube-videoselostus) "larger penis size and greater height had almost equivalent positive effects on male attractiveness. Our results support the hypothesis that female mate choice could have driven the evolution of larger penises in humans."[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Mehrabian&Blum: Physical appearance, attractiveness, and the mediating role of emotions (1997) “Self-care, Masculinity (Femininity), and Pleasantness were positive correlates of male (female) attractiveness.”[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Durante et al. Ovulation Leads Women to Perceive Sexy Cads as Good Dads (2012) “Using both college-age and community-based samples, in 3 studies we show that ovulating women perceive charismatic and physically attractive men, but not reliable and nice men, as more committed partners and more devoted future fathers. Ovulating women perceive that sexy cads would be good fathers to their own children but not to the children of other women. This ovulatory-induced perceptual shift is driven by women who experienced early onset of puberty.”[/font]

[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Hill et al.

(2003) “Overall results indicated that both niceness and physical attractiveness were positive factors in women's choices and desirability ratings of the target men. Niceness appeared to be the most salient factor when it came to desirability for more serious relationships, whereas physical attractiveness appeared more important in terms of desirability for more casual, sexual relationships.”[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Rosenbaum J: Sexual behavior in juveniles with psychopathic traits (2010) “A promiscuity score was calculated as the number of sexual partners reported by the participant divided by the number of years of sexual activity. [...] promiscuity was negatively related to agreeableness (r = -.274, p<.05) [...] In the female sample, promiscuity was positively related to APSD [antisocial personality disorder] total score (r = .498, p<.05)”[/font]

Criminal offending as part of an alternative reproductive strategy: Investigating evolutionary hypotheses using Swedish total population data (2014) “Convicted criminal offenders had more children than individuals never convicted of a criminal offense. Criminal offenders also had more reproductive partners, were less often married, more likely to get remarried if ever married, and had more often contracted a sexually transmitted disease than non-offenders. [...] We conclude that criminality appears to be adaptive in a contemporary industrialized country, and that this association can be explained by antisocial behavior being part of an adaptive alternative reproductive strategy.”[/font]


[font=Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif]Sadalla et al. Dominance and Heterosexual Attraction (1987) “All four experiments indicated an interaction between dominance and sex of target.

(2013) “The results show that male listeners preferred a female voice that signals a small body size, with relatively high pitch, wide formant dispersion and breathy voice, while female listeners preferred a male voice that signals a large body size with low pitch and narrow formant dispersion. Interestingly, however, male vocal attractiveness was also enhanced by breathiness, which presumably softened the aggressiveness associated with a large body size.”[/font]

Initial analyses showed that 11 movement variables were significantly positively correlated with perceived dance quality. Linear regression subsequently revealed that three movement measures were key predictors of dance quality; these were variability and amplitude of movements of the neck and trunk, and speed of movements of the right knee. In summary, we have identified specific movements within men's dance that influence women's perceptions of dancing ability. We suggest that such movements may form honest signals of male quality in terms of health, vigour or strength, though this remains to be confirmed.”[/font]

In the study, women were less likely to want to sleep with male acquaintances who expressed concern when they opened up than with men who were less emotionally responsive. It’s another case of nice guys finishing last. “The ‘too-nice stranger’ may come across as desperate,” says lead study author Gurit Birnbaum, Ph.D., a lecturer at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya in Israel. Rather than trying to empathize with a new interest, “just really listen, without interrupting,” says Birnbaum.”][/font]

Highly heritable, HGS is indicative of blood testosterone levels and levels of fat-free body mass. In this study, we investigated whether HGS was related to measures of body morphology [shoulder-to-hip ratio (SHR), waist-to-hip ratio, and second-digit-to-fourth-digit ratio (2D:4D)], aggressive behavior, and sexual history in 82 male and 61 female college students. Results showed that HGS was correlated with SHRs, aggressive behavior, age at first sexual intercourse, and promiscuity in males but not in females. HGS appears to be an honest signal for genetic quality in males.
