Science Says This Body Type Is Most Attractive To Women
By DENISE PORRETTO
You probably know what kind of man gets your gears going, and it turns out, researchers know all about it and have made it official, scientifically speaking. A study published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B revealed (perhaps unsurprisingly) that women like muscular guys.
A group of 160 women were asked to judge the attractiveness of men's bodies — their faces were obscured — on a scale of 1 to 7. Across the board, the women ended up picking the more “fit” models.
Holly Dunsworth, an anthropologist at the University of Rhode Island, is a bit critical of the study, saying the results may not be universal, as the women judges were college-age, as were the model men. Younger people may be less inclined to consider other factors when evaluating a person's attractiveness, she suggests.
