Study: Women seek hotties for hookups, men less picky

Post by Tweetey55 on Thu 13 Aug 2009, 11:04 am

From the Chicago Tribune http://www.chicagotribune.com/features/chi-sex-study-living-webaug13,0,1047786.story

In a never-ending quest to plumb the mysteries of men, women and sex, the journal Human Nature has published a study that minces no words in concluding that women "have higher standards" when engaging in a one-night stand.

Sure, sure, we've all heard the evolutionary argument: With the dangers of prospective childbirth and years of child care hanging in the balance, women would be expected to be choosier than men about whom they will mate with. Bound by no such commitments and keen to maximize the propagation of their DNA, men will mate, shall we say, more indiscriminately.

But do we ever tire of hearing the details? We do not.

So here's how they play out in the latest study. A total of 427 men and 433 females from universities in the United States, Germany and Italy were asked to imagine their response to a request by a member of the opposite sex to: A, go out on a date; B, go home with the requestor; and C, go to bed with him or her.

The person making the invitation could be "moderately unattractive," "somewhat attractive" or "exceptionally attractive," and the research participant was asked for his or her answer under each of these permutations.

Across the board, men were more likely to accept any and all of the invitations than were women. There were a few national differences among the men: The German men were most reticent about going out or going home with any of the imagined women, and Italians were least discriminate about doing anything with anyone. American men were more likely than their German counterparts to go to bed with a woman. But they weren't quite as randy as the Italians.

As a group, the men also showed a preference for a somewhat or exceedingly attractive woman over a moderately unappealing one. But as long as a woman was at least somewhat attractive, then men were equally ready to go off with her. Extraordinary beauty was not required to secure their willingness to go out, go home or go to bed with a woman extending the invitation.

Not so women. For female respondents who agreed they would go to bed with a man, only the best would do. While they were equally likely to go out with a moderately handsome man than with an exceptionally handsome specimen, the female respondents were far more likely to accept only the exceptionally attractive man's invitation to his home or his bed.

"While men are not entirely insensitive to their requestor's attractiveness, women have higher standards and are more likely to engage in casual sex with an exceptionally attractive man than with a less attractive man," said the study's author, psychologist Achim Schuetzwohl of Britain's Brunel University. The differences among men appear to reflect "cultural differences in sexual morals and preferences," he added.

But the difference between men and women when it came to a roll in the hay? Human nature, apparently.

This study was pretty stupid. So these people get a picture and say, "What would you do if THIS person asked you to go to bed with them." blah blah.

So you show a girl a picture of a really hot guy and say, "He asks you to sleep with him. Will you?" Well, naturally we will say "hell ya" because how often does a really hot guy come up to an average woman be like, "please go to bed with me?" It doesn't happen. Sorry.

Anyway, there is nothing about the manner of the pick-up or anything. Women can find the ugliest man attractive if he is charming, confident, funny etc. and we can find the most attractive man odious if he is an asshole, a bully or a smug little prick. So what I'm saying is that the pickup depends on a lot more than just looks and none of that was presented in this "study."

The type of man a woman is attracted to also is affected by her maturity level. A more mature woman looks past the appearance, of course he has to have good hygiene and pride in his appearance, but looks are deceiving. I've found that out the hard way. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder couldn't be a more true statement.

In my life, I have never had any female meet me and think Wow!
But, quite often after the lady gets to know me one of 2 things happen. They see me as a prick or sexy. (their words not mine)
My point, it has always taken a female to get to know me to find me attractive, the few times it's happened.

I'm just saying that personality goes a loooong way. Moreso for women than for men when it comes to one-night-stand type hookups, which is what this study is pretending to study.

But when it comes to the "complete package," women have a more discerning eye. My brother recently divorced his very hot wife when he suddenly realized, after 5 years, what we all knew from the get-go: that she's a psycho. He was completely blinded to that.

It seems that for men, the personality is shaped by the appearance -- for women, the appearance is shaped by the personality. That's why people like Tom Petty & Billy Bob Thorton can be considered "hot" while that butthole who shot all the women up in Pittsburgh could not.

Mr. Moon, if you want women to find you attractive, you should pull your pants up and turn around.

That initial "oh my God he's hot I wanna do him" feeling goes away real fast when you find out he's selfish or self-centered. Women need to be made to feel appreciated and wanted, not just needed. Need is different, it is a selfish act; but to want is to have desire and not just a physical requirement...appreciate the journey and not worry so much about the destination. At least that's true for me.
