Women’s Preferences for Penis Size

Summary: “Using 3D-printed phalluses, researchers asked women to pick their “perfect” penis—one for a long-term partner and another for a one-night stand. Good news for men: Women prefer a penis size only slightly above average, and their preferences differ slightly depending on relationship context.” – The Daily Beast

Do Orgasms Give Women Feedback about Mate Choice?

Summary: This study investigates the extent to which female orgasm functions to promote good mate choices.
“We also identified an ensemble of partner psychological traits (motivation, intelligence, focus, and determination) that predicted how often women initiated sexual intercourse. Their partner’s sense of humor not only predicted his self-confidence and family income, but it also predicted women’s propensity to initiate sex, how often they had sex, and it enhanced their orgasm frequency in comparison with other partners.”

Leveling the Playing Field Longer: Acquaintance Predicts Reduced Assortative Mating on Attractiveness

Summary: “After a while, the chubby, balding short guy (initially not very attractive) could be much more attractive to another person after they’ve known each other for a while and become close friends. When close friendships lead to romance (as they often do), people focus on other traits that make a person desirable.” – Science of Relationships
