According to the British “Daily Mail” report, a new study shows that men should not be blamed when they peek at other women on the street, because men are naturally attracted to strange women, which is determined by their genes.
Researchers at Stirling University in the UK showed pictures of different faces to male and female volunteers. It was found that the more times a woman saw the same man’s face, the easier it was to attract him. When a man sees the same female face more than twice, he thinks it is less attractive. In other words, women are more attracted to men who are familiar with the face, while men recognize that strange women are more attractive.
Researchers said that the famous “Coolidge effect” may be able to explain this partly. This effect stems from an anecdote of the 30th US President Calvin Coolidge. During a visit on the farm, Coolidge ’s wife learned that roosters mate several times a day, and quipped, “Tell Mr. Coolidge about it.” But when the President learned that roosters mate with different hens every day, Said humorously: “Go tell Mrs. Coolidge.”
Anthony Ritter of the School of Earth Sciences at Stirling University in the United Kingdom believes that this may be the result of evolution. In order to reproduce more of their own offspring, men need to pursue a large number of partners.
