Study: women still attracted to shameful assholes

25 May

Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers just got a present for their “it was consensual sex, come on” defense.

From the American Psychological Association journal:

Women find happy men less sexually attractive than those with expressions that show pride or hint that they have done wrong and know it, according to Canadian researchers.

The researchers admit they are not sure why men and women reacted differently to smiles. In a man, a big smile may make him appear too feminine or more desperate for sex.

The study also adds fuel to the notion that women are attracted to bad boys.

Brooding douchebags filled with shame are irresistible to women, hello. Big angry naked man lunging for you? Masculine and definitely not desperate for sex. Can someone say expert testimony?
