If you’re one of those unlucky dudes that got roped into seeing any of the Fifty Shades movies (or any chick flick in general), then you must feel like you could never live up to the perfectly chiseled men who never sweat (even after a steamy session of passionate thrusting), or, have a sparkling smile full of pearly whites.
Well, we’re here to make your day that much better, gentlemen! Apparently, science believes that women want just the opposite. Scientific studies posted in the New York Post claims that all those flawless sex gods are just good for the movies. The ladies actually find it hotter when men sweat and don’t smile, especially when getting busy between the sheets.
A study published in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior also found that women are naturally attracted to the facial expressions that are associated with “The Dark Triad,” such as narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy. It sounds too strange to be true, but women can’t help but prefer bad boys over the grinning nice guys. The study suggests that men frown at women instead of smile, which sounds odd, but we can’t argue with science.
Another study that was published in the Journal of Neuroscience, found that women actually become aroused over the scent of male sweat. So, all those times you rushed home from the gym to shower really quick before you had a girl over was a waste! Apparently, she prefers you all grungy.
While cologne is nice for a night out, and smiling is still a positive expression to practice every now and then, you don’t have to obsess over being perfect all the time. Science has spoken! You’re sexier when drenched and brooding. Now go work up a sweat and practice your stern face!
