Length of Men´s Ring Finger Is Decisive for His Sex Appeal

 

A recent study found that a man´s ring finger is responsible for his attractivity. The findings include that women are attracted by men whose ring fingers are larger than their index fingers.

A previous study had found that the length relation between a man´s ring and index finger shows how much testosterone he got in the womb (longer ring finger indicating more testosteron).

In the study, women evaluated men´s attractiveness and decided that those with larger ring fingers had more sex appeal, regardless of other physical features.

  Well,  
 
it always looks longer when there is not a wedding ring on it. That´s the only thing women are looking at that finger for. This study is BS.

  Actually...  
 
As stated, the longer ring finger is indicative of higher testosterone. Increased tesstosterone is also noted to increase body and facial symmetry, which is a characteristic we intrinsically find attractive.

Also, there´s some research that increased prenatal testosterone may be responsible for sexual orientation (as in, increased prenatal levels causes homosexuality in both females AND males). =)

  *sigh*  
 
For once, I would like for women to quit looking at me as a sex object.

I´m going to wear mittens and see if that´ll keep them from always sexually harrassing me.

  Touch the tip of the middle finger  
 
to the heel of your hand then straighten it. Measure the distance between the two points.

Pause, OH!

  Wrong.  
 
"A recent study found that a man´s ring finger is responsible for his attractivity."

It didn´t ant the article doesn´t say it did. It found that women rated men with a larger index finger more attractive but not that the length of the ring finger was ´responsible´. In fact it says right there that it is the bigger exposure to testosterone in the womb that MAY be what the women are attracted to, and that this has been shown to correlate with a longer ring finger.

  Also.  
 
Nowhere does it say: regardless of other physical features.
 
  by: jamesmc   04/22/2011 09:46 PM     
  hmm  
 
My ring finger is almost as long my middle finger, and hella longer then my index. No wonder the womenz want me so much.
