To Be Or Not To Be - Attractive

Post by Ahso! »

The following article in absolutely fascinating. The more we learn about Natural Selection and it's influence over our behavior the more I'm beside myself. Although the article was written primarily for the purpose to address why some men are gay it's also revealing as to why we're attracted or attractive to others of the opposite sex.

Speaking for myself, I've always been attracted on a visual level to brown-eyed brunette women. As the process would advance I'd then focus on dialogue and finally behavior in social settings for a potential mate. The caveat is that although brown-eyed brunettes is where I begin it may not be where I find myself in the end. As an example, a publicly known person I find enormously attractive is Diane Sawyer who is blond with blue eyes.

Fascinating!

But how might the "gay man gene" make females more reproductively successful? A new study by Camperio Ciani and his team addresses the question for the first time. Previously, the Italian researchers suggested that the "gay man gene" might simply increase androphilia, or attraction to men, thereby making the males who possess the gene homosexual and the females who possess it more promiscuous. But after investigating the characteristics of 161 female maternal relatives of homosexual and heterosexual men, the researchers have adjusted their hypothesis. Rather than making women more attracted to men, the "gay man gene" appears to make these women more attractive to men.Why Are There Gay Men? | Male Homosexuality | LifesLittleMysteries.com

Why is Ahso researching what makes men attractive to other men?
