Boys experience a dramatic increase in the length of their vocal cords, which become 60 per cent longer than those of girls. Testosterone triggers the change in boys at puberty and high levels of testosterone predict deeper voices among adult men. Recent investigations show that whether women are looking for a short-term or long-term relationship is critical in how they choose among men's voices.
Evolutionary anthropologist David Puts obtained voice recordings of 30 men attempting to persuade a woman to go out on a romantic date. Then heterosexual women listened to the recordings and rated each man's attractiveness for a short-term sexual encounter and a long-term committed relationship. Though women said the deeper voices were more attractive in both mating contexts, they dramatically preferred the deeper voices when considering them as prospects for purely sexual, short-term encounters.
Moreover, women in the fertile phase of their ovulation cycle showed the strongest sexual attraction to men with deep voices. One hint as to why this is so is found in studies of female frogs. They gravitate towards male bullfrogs with deep, resonant croaks, which are a reliable signal - for frogs - of a mate's size and health.
Research on people has revealed two similar reasons that help to explain why women find some men's voices much more attractive than others. The first involves bilateral body symmetry when both sides of the body are symmetrical , which is commonly accepted as a sign of good health and good genes. So when a woman finds the resonance of a man's voice even sexier during her fertile, ovulatory phase, she is attracted to the sound of healthy genes for her possible offspring.
The way a person dances reveals a huge amount of information. It also conveys information about energy level, health and biomechanical efficiency. In fact, in our studies, we found that some women had sex with men simply because they'd been impressed by their dancing. Research reveals that women find certain body movements to be more attractive than others.
One study had women view digitally masked or pixellated images of men dancing. They were more attracted to men who displayed larger and more sweeping movements. They also rated these men more erotic. Other patterns of men's movements provide women with valuable mating information. Women see 'touchers' as having more status, a key component of a man's mate value. Movements that maximise space, as when a man stretches his arms or extends his legs, are another dominance signal.
Sexual attraction isn't simply a matter of physical bodies drawn magnetically together in search of compatibility. For some women, personality - in particular, a good sense of humour - is equally, if not more, important in generating a sexual spark.
One indication of the importance of a good sense of humour in a man is that it is one of the few personality traits that has its own abbreviation in online dating sites: Another is that research shows married women who think their husbands are witty are more satisfied with their marriages than women who do not. Why a sense of humour is so important in sexual attraction has been the subject of scientific debate.
One critical distinction is between humour production making others laugh and humour appreciation laughing at others' jokes. There's a sex difference - men define a woman with a good sense of humour as someone who laughs at their jokes. Men especially like women who are receptive to their humour. Women, in contrast, are attracted to men who produce humour, and that's true for all types of relationships, from one-night stands to lifelong matings.
The most likely explanation for why women and men alike are attracted to those with a sense of humour is because laughing elicits a positive mood - it's a sign of confidence and intelligence, too.
