Women find strong men more attractive, says study
At first glance, what draws most attention and attracts women? According to a study done by the University of California, in the United States, it is the strong men who win the most of the looks. Height and slender body were also considered attractive attributes, but strength gained in all respects, according to the work published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B. Of the 160 evaluators, none of them showed preference for physically weak men. > Along with other researchers, evolutionary psychologist Aaron Lukaszewski has created a database of 190 men, university students, all shirtless or racing. The volunteers' faces were digitally covered. Among them, 60 were recruited at the academy of the university and 130 were students enrolled in psychology courses. The researchers quantified the students' physical abilities through weight-lifting devices, grip strength tests, and other measures.
Man's strength was by far the strongest predictor of being classified as attractive. Being tall also gained prominence, while being overweight generated negative points. "Our results suggest that even if you are a little overweight, looking strong can dampen that, which certainly brings comfort to many." The team said they now want to look again to the question of why the results differ from the studies on facial attractiveness, where women showed preference for male faces with female features. "It looks like the face is being looked at differently by women, and we're still not sure why."
