See­ing red

CLEO (Singapore) - - ADULTING -

Time to fish out that red dress from your closet – a 2010 study by re­searchers from the Univer­sity of Rochester in New York showed that women wear­ing red cloth­ing were viewed as more at­trac­tive and sex­u­ally de­sir­able by men.

You can also slick on a red lip­pie – a study by Manch­ester Univer­sity found that in the 10 sec­onds af­ter meet­ing a woman for the first time, the av­er­age guy will spend half his time gaz­ing at her lips – and even longer if she’s wear­ing red lipstick. The hy­poth­e­sis is that red lips re­sem­ble the swelling of blood ves­sels that oc­cur dur­ing sex­ual arousal.
