Is the overfilled lip popular among some female celebrities really the most attractive look? Many women are paying for cosmetic ‘enhancements’ to their lips that are making them less attractive, if new research is anything to go by. The overfilled upper lip may not actually be the most attractive look, a new study published in the journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery finds. Scientists at the University of California showed a series of pictures of women’s faces to 150 judges. Both the overall size of the lips and the ratio of
In the real world, forcing someone to have sex is something that is widely regarded as a repugnant act. By contrast, in our sexual fantasies, the prospect of being forced to have sex is something that many people find to be a major turn-on. For instance, research on the prevalence of so-called “rape fantasies, “ or fantasies about being forced to have sex against one’s will, has found that they are quite common. Indeed, studies have found that anywhere from 31% to 57% of women report having had these fantasies;
What men look at most in the first 10 seconds of looking at a woman. The lips are the most attractive facial feature on women, according to a survey. In the first 10 seconds of meeting a women, on average, a man will spend around half that time looking at her lips. If the woman is wearing lipstick then it attracts men’s attention even more.

Beauty actually is greater than skin-deep, psychologists discover. Positive character traits — like helpfulness and honesty — make individuals seem bodily extra engaging, analysis finds. These displaying destructive persona traits — like rudeness and unfairness — look physically much less engaging to observers. The finding is especially robust for when women are evaluating males since ladies place somewhat extra emphasis on personality. The study helps justify those that say that ‘inner beauty’ is essential. Dr. Gary W. Lewandowski, Jr., who led the analysis, stated: “Perceiving a person as having a desirable

“I spent three years talking to girls ages 15 to 20 about their attitudes and experience of sex. And what I found was that while young women may feel entitled to engage in sexual behavior, they don’t necessarily feel entitled to enjoy it.” – Peggy Orenstein American sex education courses are seriously lacking when it comes to the subject of women’s sexual anatomy and pleasure. Not only are terms like “vulva” and “clitoris” rarely uttered, but students typically learn nothing at all about the female orgasm, which (sadly) explains why
Americans are increasingly going online in order to find romantic and sexual partners. However, despite the popularity of online dating, most Americans have never tried it. That’s partially because there’s still some stigma attached to online dating, but it’s also because the sheer idea of it seems overwhelming to many. For example, how do you create an effective profile? This step alone can be very intimidating because a lot of people are worried about saying or posting the “wrong” thing and having that hurt their chances. Fortunately, there are some
My university, like many schools around the country, is on spring break this week. A lot of students are using this opportunity to not just take a breather from their studies, but also to travel. As I’m sure you’re well aware, spring break trips have a reputation for getting a little wild and crazy—I mean, just look at how they’re depicted in Hollywood films. But why is that exactly? What accounts for why so many college students partake in risky behaviors—especially risky sexual behaviors—at this time of year? Let’s take
Lately I’ve been thinking about sex differences in brain and cognition. There are undeniable differences in the physical size of the brain, and different brain areas, even if there are no ‘female’ and ‘male’ brains categorically. These physical differences do not translate directly into commensurate differences in cognition. Indeed, there is support for a ‘gender similarities hypothesis’ which asserts that on most measures there is no difference between men and women. Most, but maybe not all. There are a few areas of fundamental cognitive ability where gender differences seem to
