    Smile Male facial attractiveness

    Women prefer more masculine faces during ovulation and more feminine faces at other points of the menstrual cycle.

    Experimenters examining male facial attractiveness have concluded that the attractive male face is (1) an average male face, (2) a masculinized male face, or (3) a feminized male face. Others have proposed that symmetry, hormone markers, and the menstrual phase of the observer are important variables that influence male attractiveness.

    This study was designed to resolve these issues by examining the facial preferences of 42 female volunteers at two different phases of their menstrual cycle. Preferences were measured using a 40-s QuickTime movie (1200 frames) that was designed to systematically modify a facial image from an extreme male to an extreme female configuration.

    The results indicate that females exhibit (1) a preference for a male face on the masculine side of average, (2) a shift toward a more masculine male face preference during the high-risk phase of their menstrual cycle, and (3) no shift in other facial preferences. An examination of individual differences revealed that women who scored low on a "masculinity" test (1) showed a larger menstrual shift, (2) had lower self-esteem, and (3) differed in their choice of male faces for dominance and short-term mates.

    The results are interpreted as support for a hormonal theory of facial attractiveness whereby perceived beauty depends on an interaction between displayed hormone markers and the hormonal state of the viewer.

    Another interesting hormonal observation is that women are attracted/repulsed by male scent to varying degrees depending on where they are in their cycle.

    Not me, I always love man smell! LOL Well as long as it's not total BO!!
    I envision a world where people dawning long white robes and elaborate headdresses run rampant down the streets, waving their arms in the air while screaming "we've gone mad, we've gone mad", like defrocked monks breaking the silence of ages past.

    And I also like the way a woman smells. Unless she smokes in which cause she smells like a cigarette butt. All those yucky chemicals oozing out of her pores is a real turn off.

    I have read somewhere that this is the reason (read excuse) for adultery in some females.The long term partner may differ facially from the one she may want/choose during ovulation....hence the affair......it said that adultery was more likely to occur and often did show itself to occur more frequently during ovulation than any other time in the cycle.

    I'd like to hear the opinion and personal experiences of the female members on this theory...if they would care to offer it.
    Politics is where we send the mediocre people so they can feel vaguely consequential and when they say ''His Excellency or The Honourable Minister", They really mean "This Prick here"
