Gentlemen ALSO prefer red

Filed under: News — posted by Jackie @ 11:30 am

Okay, it’s all a blur. Earlier this month, I reported that men — definitively! (at least according to SCIENCE) — were most drawn to brunettes. Then BG found even more current research that confirmed the old chestnut about blondes. And now there’s more breaking news on the hue front.  According to ScienceDaily, a new study reveals that “the color red makes men feel more amorous toward women.” That’s red as in plumage — like Jessica Rabbit’s dress — not her hair. In other words, if you thought the world lacked enough pop songs, famously lipsticked kissers, other iconic red dresses and more pop songs to prove it, now we’ve got the scientific stats to back it up. Kinda the same way we figured out the sky is blue.

But speaking of woodland creatures: “Although this aphrodisiacal effect of red may be a product of societal conditioning alone, the authors argue that men’s response to red more likely stems from deeper biological roots. Research has shown that nonhuman male primates are particularly attracted to females displaying red. Female baboons and chimpanzees, for example, redden conspicuously when nearing ovulation, sending a clear sexual signal designed to attract males…findings confirm what many women have long suspected and claimed — that men act like animals in the sexual realm. As much as men might like to think that they respond to women in a thoughtful, sophisticated manner, it appears that at least to some degree, their preferences and predilections are, in a word, primitive.”

[OK, but you know what? Humans are animals. Just ONCE, I’d like to see a study like this that didn’t “conclude,” with great sciencey fanfare, “See? Men ARE animals!” — BG, seeing red.]

Here’s my logic problem. A guy has to choose between a brunette in a red sweater and a blonde in an ivory sweater. Uh oh! Now who’s the belle of the ball? Something tells me this isn’t so black and white. Jessicas and Rogers: what’s your take?

  9. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with
    something like this. Please let me know if
    you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to
    your new updates.

  12. Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I
    wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  30. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally
    educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about.

    Now i’m very happy I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

  33. May I just say what a relief to find someone who truly understands what they’re talking about over the internet.
    You certainly know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people have to check this out and understand this side
    of the story. I can’t believe you are not more popular because you most certainly have
    the gift.

    actually much more well-appreciated than you might be
    right now. You are so intelligent. You know thus significantly in relation to
    this topic, made me in my view believe it
    from a lot of varied angles. Its like women and men aren’t fascinated until it is something to do with Woman gaga!
    Your personal stuffs outstanding. At all times handle it up!
