Benefit of being ugly

Post by Admin on Fri Jul 10, 2009 10:17 am

Attractive men produce less sperm during sex, according to a new study.



Scientists found that good-looking men want to maximise their chances of producing offspring with a range of women — so they hold some back for future partners.

This means women trying to get pregnant are better off choosing UGLY men to mate with.

The study was carried out by researchers at the University of Oxford and University College London and is due to be published in the journal American Naturalist in September.

Sam Tazzyman, from UCL, said: "The more attractive a male is, the more females will be willing to mate with him, reducing the value of each mating to him.

"This means it is optimal for him to contribute fewer sperm per mating. Although this reduces fertility per mating, it maximises the number of offspring he sires overall.

"Less attractive males secure fewer matings but value each of them more highly, and by allocating more sperm to each mating make the most of their meagre opportunities.

"This leads to the rather paradoxical prediction that matings with attractive males may be less fertile than those with unattractive males."

The experts have proved their theory only on birds and chicken at the moment — but claim the same is likely to be true of humans.

Mr Tazzyman added: "Human attractiveness is complicated and influenced by a number of factors including cultural preferences.

"Nonetheless ejaculate size and sperm quality are likely to have been moulded by similar forces, like attractiveness and the number of sexual partners, that are important in other species."

So they have proved that birds are handsome? Who is judging the looks of the birds? How do they judge the looks of the birds???

Are vultures better since I think that they are plug ugly???

Ecconomic downtimes, study stupid stuff like this... Nope, there are other things to study!

That is why I do not want to have kids! They will be so ugly that when they look in the mirror, it will crack up!
