Sexual Cues: All It Takes Is A Smile?

Huffington Post:

This just in: According to a study by WIlliams College psychologist Carin Perrilloux — the results of which will be published in a forthcoming issue of Psychological Science — men really aren’t on to how the other sex thinks. Perilloux and her co-authors studied 200 heterosexual college students who were evenly split between the sexes and with an average age of 19 to gauge how each gender read the other’s sexual cues.

Here are their surprising findings:

1. The more attractive the woman was to the guy the more likely he was to rate her as interested in him!

2. The less attractive men (as rated by their female peers) were more likely to think that the gorgeous female undergrads were hot for them.

3. The more attractive guys had a more realistic assessment than their less attractive peers of which coeds were interested in them.

4. Regarding the college women: Basically they underestimated their male peer’s sexual interest in them.
