Sexual attractiveness

Sexual attractiveness or sex appeal is how desirable a person is solely based on how sexually pleasing he is (not to be confused with relationship appeal). Various features can be attractive such as sexual dimorphism, body odor, gait, personality, humor, intelligence and looks, which in turn consists of beauty, facial masculinity, neoteny and body attractiveness, or the mere sight of the genitals. Through conditioning/imprinting, many develop attraction to nearly arbitrary features such as particular body shapes or behavioral traits, sometimes even sexual interest in non-living things (paraphilic sexual interest), with men being generally more prone to developing such interests owing to their higher sex drive.[1]

Male sexual attractiveness[edit | edit source]

Having high status can potentially lead to greater arousal to women, than any amount of height or muscle.[citation needed] But having a repulsive face will lead to a significant reduction of overall attractiveness. A repulsive face may cancel out the positive effect on status and height combined.[citation needed]

Note that the "average" face is actually repulsive to women. According to an OKCupid study, women consider 80% of men "below average."[1] This is supported by additional evidence that virtually all industrialized peoples have some degree of maxillary retrusion (a facial deformity).[citation needed]

Male facial attractiveness[edit | edit source]

The bone structure is "normal" when the maxilla is forward and upward and the cheekbones are high and forward-projecting. Any deviation from this "normal" bone structure will result in increased repulsiveness.[2]

A "normal" bone structure is not necessarily a deal-maker, but a deformed one (like a retruded maxilla) is a deal-breaker.Template:Vague

The skin can function as an attractant or a repellent. Orange skin indicates health and is attractive. Pale skin or pimples will increase repulsion.[3]

Yet another quality is the leanness of the face, with 12% being the optimal bodyfat percentage.[4]

Bluepill Sexual Subjectivism[edit | edit source]

Bluepilled people believed that there will always be girls that like different traits. This is based on Malcom Gladwell's presentation[5] on choice, variety and "people not knowing what they want". OkCupid's Data[6] demonstrated that this is only partially true, since for females, larger variance in beauty is correlated to more messages (but this can be correlated to Juggernaut law rather than beauty).

LessWrong[7][8][9] has demonstrated that there are good measures of variance of attractiveness. However data is lacking in that department, and that sub-group clustering did not exist in their article. TBD

Female sexual attractiveness[edit | edit source]

Female facial attractiveness[edit | edit source]

The following traits are considered to be attractive to males:

Indicators of health:

  • Orange skin
  • Red lips
  • Clear skin

Indicators of youth:

Indicators of neoteny / paedomorphism / cuteness:

One could also say that "low-set eyes" are attractive but low-set eyes are a result of a short midface or jaw.

Misconceptions[edit | edit source]

  • Large eyes - Females have large eyes relatively to their skull due to greater scleral show. However, it’s not only due to scleral show. Females have smaller skulls which makes their eyes appear larger.
  • Wide-set eyes - Females actually don't have eyes farther apart than males. Females have shorter midfaces which makes their eyes appear farther apart.
  • Thick lips - Females actually don't have thicker lips than males.[10] Females have smaller skulls which makes the lips appear thicker.
  • Higher eyebrows - Females have higher eyebrows because of eyebrow trimming.[11]

Female bodily attractiveness[edit | edit source]

Indicators of youth:

Indicators of fecundity:

Indicators of resource availability:
