Do you agree or disagree with this statement about sexual attraction?

"Attractiveness is part of sexual attraction which is actually your bodies way of saying if the person would make healthy off spring with you." I see people saying a lot of crazy stuff on here and this one is no exception. but do you agree or no?

  • This is correct for all animals.

    That includes humans. But, it is usually a sub-conscious thing. No one actually goes out and says "Well, I think he / she will produce healthy offspring."

    But there is a lot of proof out there that attraction has such a simple biological base.

    Why do girls not go after nice guys, for example?

    Or why is it much more common for the girl to be younger than the guy in a marriage than vice versa?

    Women search for the strong, the confident, and sometimes even the rich.

    Men search for the young and beautiful.

    Of course, not all men / women are that way, but most are. It all comes back to that one seemingly crazy sentence that you shared.

    Anyway, enough with the Evolution talk, right?

  • I agree with the statement. And this is why peoples' tastes differ in my opinion...differences in perception of how people will match up with yourself.

  • Sounds like an evolutionary perspective. That's not a statement I don't agree with (double -ve). The biological side of attractiveness and attraction says dopamine (in addition to other hormones) is released when we see an attractive face. The stronger the reaction the more attractive you think they are (in short).

  • I'm growing really tired of people trying to use evolutionary psychology to explain modern behavior.

    Are they saying that you're attracted to certain people because your genes match up well? If that were true, we'd never be attracted to people who have inheritable conditions.

  • That's somewhat true actually. It's based in biology/evolution. The potential mates with better features (such as a male peacock with brighter and more colorful feathers) are seen as having better genes. The same goes for humans.

  • I agree.. but what about people who have.. obese people fetishes for example...

    • lol..I forget about that fetish...but there must be a reason that Plumpers Magazine is published...(:(:(:

  • I think it true but I also know some people are infertile so there are other factors not shore what there are but there are

  • I agree to a point.

  • you can be sexual in any kind of way. sexual attraction comes from flirting or see someone hot and sexy. if you have sex and your body reacts to it in a way of preganency then I would think so...

    i agree in one point but in another I dont..

  • Ive heard of this but I'm not sure if I agree or disagree with it.

  • I think its sorta true, cause if I see a guy that is scrawny and then I see one that's normal size or bigger id choose the second one because Id feel like he would be healthier,which kinda pertains to your question.

    • But its sorta a prefernece to so idk
