What REALLY makes a woman want to sleep with a man?

What makes a woman want to sleep with a man? Is it true that a blighter can laughter a woman into bed? Does he need to be tall, dark and freehanded to stand any chance at all?
Today, in the second elicit from the new book Why Women Have Sex, by psychologists Cindy Meston and David osculation, we disclose the features that make a man appeal to a woman, and why, are far more enthralling and complex than you could imagine...
What sort of body does a woman find worthy? Perhaps the most obvious physical feature she looks for in a man is height.
Studies systematically find that women consider tall men to be beautifully. In analyses of personal ads, 80 per cent of women state they want to meet a man who is 6ft or taller.
Men who indicate in their personal ads that they are tall have also been shown to receive far more responses from women.
Other studies show women prefer tall men as husbands and put an even greater emphasis on height in shorter-term sex partners. Women even place importance on height when selecting spermatozoan donors.

Two studies also found that taller-than-average men tend to have a greater number of live-in girlfriends and more children, verificatory their popularity for romance and reproduction.
And there does seem to be an rudimentary logic in women's druthers for tall men. In Western cultures, tall men tend to have higher sociobiological-economic status than short men.
Each added inch of height has been shown to add several thousand pounds to a man's annual salary.

It is estimated that, on average, 6ft men earn more than £100,000 across a 30-year career than 5ft 5in men.

They also tend to be fitter than shorter men - and if they're policemen, they get raped less than their shorter colleagues, which suggests height commands more respect from other men. What more could a girl want?
The wind Of Sex
According to new scientific research, a woman will virtually snuff out a man's genetic make-up before she decides if he's right for her.
A woman's sense of tone reaches a peak around the time of her ovulation, the 24-hour window -during the monthly catamenial cycle in which she can become pregnant.
The generation responsible for fighting off disease- causation bacterium and viruses are found in a group of generation called the major histocompatibility complex, or Mhc.

Different people have various versions of these generation - and it turns out that women can benefit in two ways from union with men whose Mhc generation are different to their own.
Such a copulate is likely to have more different generation in general, so finding someone different beautifully might help to prevent many of the birth defects associated with reproducing with close genetic relatives.

A second benefit is any children of such a union will have a more rich resistant system.
The interesting thing is that women seem to be able to snuff out men with different Mhc.
In a revelation study, Brazilian researchers asked 29 men to wear cotton skin patches for five days to immerse their travail - and thus their body odours.

A sample of 29 women then smelled each cotton patch and evaluated the aroma on a scale from beautifully to untempting.
Scientists identified the specific Mhc complex of each man and woman through blood tests. Women found the aromas of men who had a complex different to their own to be the most worthy.
The odours of men who had a complex similar to their own made them shrink in revolt.
This highly developed sense of tone can have a unfathomed effect on women's gender.
Evolutionary psychologist Christine Garver-Apgar deliberate Mhc similarity in 48 couples.
They found that as the degree of similarity between each woman and man increased, the woman's sexual reactivity to her partner reduced.
Women whose partners had similar generation reported wanting to have sex less often. They had less motivating to please their partner sexually compared to the women going out with men with different generation.
Women with Mhc-similar partners also reported more shop sexual fantasies about other men, particularly at the most fat phase of their ovulation cycle.
And their sexual fantasies about other men did not just remain in their heads. They also reported higher rates of sexual unfaithfulness.
Height is not the only aspect of men's bodies that excites women.
Studies of copulate preferences disclose that women desire strong, powerful, athletic men for long-term partnerships as well as for sexual liaisons.
Most women also show a discrete druthers for a V- molded body - broad shoulders relative to hippie. They are also attracted to a inclination tum combined with a powerful (but not muscle-bound) upper body.
In fact, both sexes judge men with a high berm-to-hip ratio to be more physically and socially dominant.
This may give a cue to its appeal, since women are not attracted to men who appear as though they could be easily henpecked by other men.
Men with a high berm-to-hip ratio begin having sexual coitus at an early age - 16 or younger.

Sexual draw: A woman will virtually snuff out a man's genetic make-up before she decides if he's right for her
They report having more sex partners than their slight-shouldered peers. But be warned: they have more affairs while in a relationship.

And they report more instances of being chosen by women who are already in relationships for affairs on the side.

Scientific research, though, has discovered that men overrating the degree of muscularity that women find beautifully, assumptive they need to pump iron and sport a honed six-pack to be beautifully.
Images of muscle-bound men have almost certainly nourished men's misperception of what women find most sexually beautifully - just as photo spreads of impossibly thin models have led women to overrating the degree of leanness that men find most beautifully.
One study compared the muscularity of men's bodies in cosmopolite magazine (whose readership is 89 per cent women) with Men's Health (whose readership is 85 per cent men).
The level of muscularity in cosmopolite was nearly monovular to that which women rate as ideal in a sexual partner. Men, in contrast, erroneously believe women desire a more powerful sex partner, which corresponds more closely with the muscularity of men in Men's Health.
After viewing recurrent images of V- molded bodies, men become more disgruntled with their own bodies, just as women become more distressed with their bodies after seeing images of size zero models.
The Face Of draw
When it comes to choosing between a craggy, conventionally freehanded man and an ordinary, less beautifully partner, women have a difficult choice to make.
In a series of scientific studies, women found square-jawed, masculine faces to be the sexiest and the most beautifully for a casual sexual happen.
But they judged somewhat less masculine faces to be more beautifully for a long-term relationship.
Women's sexual desires for testosterone-fuelled facial cues of maleness were especially strong during the fat window of their cycle.
The most credible interpretation of these results is that women are attracted to men who are likely to be 'good dads' when choosing long-term match, but are attracted to the signals of rich health that more masculine faces provide when they are most likely to become inseminated.
Why do more masculine faces intend health? High testosterone production actually compromises the body's resistant operation, leaving men less able to fight off diseases and parasites in adolescence.
Only men who are above average in healthiness during adolescence can ' open' to produce the high levels of testosterone that masculinize the face.
Less healthy adolescents can't open to compromise their already unstable resistant systems, and so produce lower levels of testosterone at exactly the time when facial castanets take their adult form.
So, a masculine-looking face signals a man's health, his ability to win in competing with other men and his ability to protect.
This interpretation, however, raises a puzzle: Why wouldn't women be attracted to highly masculine malecite for all union relationships, from dangerous liaisons through to life-long love?
The answer lies in the fact that the more masculine men, with more testosterone, tend to be less sexually close.
They are more likely to be the risk-taking, womanising bad boys among the male population.
accordingly, most women face a trade- off: if they choose the less masculine-looking man, they are likely to get a better father and sexually patriotic copulate, but they lose out in the currency of generation for good health.

If they choose the more masculine man, they can empower their children with good generation for health, but must brook the costs of a man who channels some of his sexual energy toward other women. It's a slick choice.
Voice sky is the most hit feature of human speech and, according to research, there is a decidedly sound of amativeness - something about male voices that gives women a sexual bombinate.
Before pubescence, male and female voices are similar. At pubescence, however, singular changes occur. Boys experience a spectacular increase in the length of their sung corduroys, which become 60 per cent longer than those of girls.
Longer sung corduroys and tracts produce a deeper, more reverberating voice sky.
Testosterone triggers the change in boys at pubescence and high levels of testosterone bode 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 coup obtained voice recordings of 30 men attempting to sway a woman to go out on a amorous date.
Then 142 straight women listened to the recordings and rated each man's attraction for a short-term sexual happen and a long-term committed relationship.
Though women said the deeper voices were more beautifully in both union contexts, they dramatically preferred the deeper voices when considering them as prospects for strictly sexual, short-term encounters.
furthermore, women in the fat phase of their ovulation cycle showed the strongest sexual draw to men with deep voices.
One suggestion as to why this is so is found in studies of female frog. They gravitate towards male bullfrogs with deep, reverberating croaks, which are a reliable signal - for frog - of a copulate's size and health.

Research on people has disclosed two similar reasons that help to explain why women find some men's voices much more beautifully than others.

The first involves isobilateral body isotropy (when both sides of the body are symmetric), which is ordinarily accepted as a sign of good health and good generation.
Body isotropy is also more likely to produce deep voices.
So when a woman finds the sonorousness of a man's voice even sexier during her fat, ovulatory phase, she is attracted to the sound of healthy generation for her possible materialisation.
The way a person dances reveals a huge amount of information.It broadcasts information about age  -  notice the difference between the
What Really makes a woman want to dancing art of younger versus older dancers. 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 beautifully than others.
One study had women view digitally disguised or pixellated images of men dancing. They were more attracted to men who displayed larger and more extensive movements. They also rated these men more erotic.
Other patterns of men's movements provide women with valuable union information. Nonreciprocal same-sex affecting - when a man touches another man's back, for example - is a well- authenticated signal of ascendency.
Women see 'touchers' as having more status, a key component of a man's copulate value. Movements that maximize space, as when a man stretches his arms or extends his legs, are another ascendency signal.
Those who display open body placement - for example, by not fold their arms across the chest - are judged to be more strong and strength.
Sexual draw isn't simply a matter of physical bodies drawn magnetically together in search of rapport.
For some women, personality - in particular, a good sense of mood - is as, if not more, important in generating a sexual flicker.
One reading of the importance of a good sense of mood in a man is that it is one of the few personality traits that has its own abbreviation in online dating sites: Gsoh.
Another is that research shows married women who think their husbands are witty are more satisfied with their marriages than women who do not.
Women rate it as a worthy betrayer in short-term sexual and long-term amorous relationships.
Why a sense of mood is so important in sexual draw has been the subject of scientific debate.
One critical differentiation is between mood production (making others laughter) and mood perceptiveness ( goat at others' jokes).
There's a sex difference - men define a woman with a good sense of mood as someone who laughs at their jokes. Men especially like women who are centripetal to their mood.
Women, in contrast, are attracted to men who produce mood, 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 likewise are attracted to those with a sense of mood is because goat elicits a positive temper - it's a sign of confidence and intelligence, too.
