To be clear, they find "dumb" women attractive because they think they can get more sex out of them, not because they want to date them. Uh, excuse me while I throw some confetti? According to Slate Magazine , a new study will soon be published, and it has a premise I found rather disturbing: testing the idea that indication that a woman is "sexually exploitable" is a turn-on for the average guy. To determine what cues indicated a woman's receptivity or vulnerability, a large group of both male and female students were surveyed. Based on this, the researchers came up with a list of 88 traits including: lip licking or biting, over the shoulder looks, looking sleepy or intoxicated, wearing tight clothing, and being fat, short, unintelligent which apparently can be seen in looks, I guess? After that, men were asked to evaluate pictures of women that supposedly exhibited those qualities for attractiveness, ability to "exploit" and appeal as a long- or short-term partner. In one reasonable result, physical cues--like being short or overweight--did not affect whether or not men thought the women were more exploitable. A result that was pretty horrifying: Men rated unintelligent, sleepy and intoxicated women as being easy to bed AND more physically attractive than lucid women, although not for long-term relationships.
A new study says yes.
By Snejana Farberov. When it comes to finding a mate, men may not be looking for charm and intelligence, but rather a woman who looks dumb - or drunk - enough for a one-night-stand, according to a new study. In an article in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior, University of Texas at Austin graduate student Cari Goetz and her team focused on the so-called sexual exploitability hypothesis - the idea that men are genetically programmed to look for 'easy' sex. Tests on 76 male students found that they rated vulnerable-looking women as attractive - lending weight to the idea. Easy prey: The study has found that men view women who appear impaired by alcohol or exhaustion as easy 'scores'. The 'cues' included being sleepy, stupid or inert - and thus easily exploitable.
Smart Men Finally Admit They Prefer Dumb Women
Men are not attracted to intelligent women unless they are good looking, a study has found. New research has confirmed the commonly held notion that the smarter a woman is, the less likely it is a man will fancy her. Afterwards the volunteers were asked to rate each other based on intelligence and attractiveness. After analysing the results, researchers found that women were impressed by men who were either good-looking or intelligent.
