Bores are binned by fer­tile fe­males

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY NOVEMBER 1 -

WOMEN want sex­ier men when they are at their most fer­tile, ac­cord­ing to a new sci­en­tific study.

The re­search found women with part­ners who are plain look­ing eye up other men when they are ovu­lat­ing.

Boffins say at this time they act on in­stinct, sub­con­sciously seek­ing more ‘manly’ men as a suit­able mate.

As a re­sult, women are at­tracted to dom­i­nant men with deep voices and a mas­cu­line ‘sexy’ face.

The re­search into be­hav­iour changes dur­ing ovu­la­tion found women are more likely to find fault with a part­ner if they aren’t manly enough.

But, for­tu­nately for the ‘less sexy’, the neg­a­tive feel­ings are fleet­ing and don’t af­fect a woman’s long-term com­mit­ment.

Psy­chol­o­gists Pro­fes­sor Mar­tie Hasel­ton and Christina Lar­son at the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia car­ried out the re­search.
