Why Women On Average Are More Physically Attractive Then Men Are.

I believe that women on average are more physically attractive then men are. Here's why.


Women Put More Effort Into Their Appearance

From makeup, mascara, (insert other makeup stuff that I have no idea about because ima dude here), moisturizer, hair styles, and other stuff that women use to look good, it's fairly obvious how obvious women put a lot of effort into their appearance. This in turn might make them look a lot better and broadens their appeal to the male species.



The top models and pornstars are women

In any profession where your job is to simply look good, women easily outrank men in terms of wealth and popularity. Your average female model can make $41,000 a year while your average male model makes much less than that. Even in porn, women are earning more. If you go to any porn site, it's fairly obvious that women are the stars and are much of the focus and attention. I'm sure many of you can name 10 different pornstars, how many of you can name 10 male pornstars?



More women are seen as 'physically desirable' than men are

If you go to any online dating site, it will soon be obvious how much more picky women are than men in terms of physical appearance. When it comes to desirability, men will rate around half of women he sees as 'physically desirable' but for women, only 10-15% of men she sees will be rated as 'physically desirable'. That's a big difference!

This shows two things. That women are more picky then men are in who they choose to date, and that women on average are more attractive then men are.



There's A High Percentage Of Women Who Are Attracted To Women

Women are more likely to be bisexual and have had same-sexual contact compared to men.

Just goes to show you that women are so beautiful that even other women are attracted to them...

Hard to argue with millions of years of evolution. One sex generally 'displays' more than the other. It varies in the animal kingdom but with humans, yup women are it. Each successive generation reinforces this genetically and with techniques of role-modeling, socialization and peer pressure.

I don't think the fact that most top porn stars are women has anything to do with the fact that women are more attractive than men. It's more likely because the largest consumers of porn are heterosexual men. Basic supply and demand....emphasis on demand....

Oh really?

I still think that Ryan Gosling, or young Robert Redford are 10x more attractive than the average, girl next door.

I am straight as a board by the way.

I can tell that many guys are handsome without swinging this way.

So, physically desirable varies a lot.

I wonder why it is that men are more attractive than women are? I mean, just look around! Sure there are some attractive women but, imo, not nearly as many as there are attractive men.

Possibly why you think there are more attractive women around than men, OP, is your perspective!

Because society tells us we have to be.

Women are HEAVILY judged on their physical appearance. Our perceived worth is often directly correlated with our physical appearance.

If men were so heavily judged and ranked on their appearance, they would also put a priority on it, and spend a lot of money up keeping it.

Here are some examples that struck me in the last week.

*Listening to a sports radio show, the host was talking about how a certain coach had the hottest wife out of all college coach wives. We was going on and on how this one takes the prize because she was the most beautiful.

Could you imagine a converse conversation? Where a radio personality would be talking about which woman had the most handsome husband, and that if they lined up all the husbands, her's would take the prize?

Men are not judged and ranked on their appearance like that - no, it would be who has the most successful, rich, etc husband.

*Another example, a beauty pageant came on TV. I turned to my husband and said could you imagine if they did this for men? Had them parade around in speedos in front of judges? Then had them dress in different outfits and parade around, before giving some basic speech to decide who is "Mr America"?

* Another example, very close guy friend of mine gets married. He is rich, successful, etc. My friend turned to me, and said "I always new James would marry a beautiful woman" - as if that was all that mattered, that was the high point. His wife happens to be a wonderful woman, who has many qualities that outshine her beauty, but to most - she is pretty, and that is what matters.

Why are female models, porn stars, etc paid more than men? Because men are drawn to their physical appearance, while women are not so visually motivated. Its pandering to the market, men want see skin, beautiful female skin, while women on a whole do not care as much.

As for women being more picky about physical appearance, I do not think that is true at all. When I look at the couples around me, there are a lot of very pretty women, with average at best looking men (who have other desirable attributes, like success). Perhaps it is a small percent of men that are picked by women solely on appearance, because again, as a whole, women do not weigh appearance as heavily as men do.

Regarding Bi-Sexuality, I think that is largely a societal construct. It is acceptable to be a Bi woman, heck we are often PRESSURED to be. I can't tell you how many times in college etc I was pressured to make out with, or show even attraction to women. I have NONE, therefore never did - but how often are men pressured to be sexual with each other to please women? How socially acceptable is it for Bi men to be out about their sexuality?

One sex is pressured to display this, and the other is oppressed and told not to.

I agree, but mainly for the first reason listed, which is women try harder with grooming. There are so many women who luuuvvv their man but would give their big toe if he'd dress decent and shave and keep his hair styled.

If you look at women vs male inmates or inpatient hospital or somewhere there is no grooming... no makeup, no hairstyling/dying, no face injections, etc I actually think the men are overall more attractive

Maybe because I’m just not used to seeing most women in their natural form or something. Which is sad.

I agree with you. BTW, are you heterosexual? That may account for your bias, too.

Yep, I do not find women attractive... As in attracted to them. I have never seen a woman and thought I wanted to touch her. I think boobs are weird, labias? Wholly moly, no. Soft bodies? Nope, I love the feeling of muscles.

Now men? Just about every day I see one that gets my juices flowing.

I did a lot of that while caregiving, both at home and at the facilities, where I saw other elderly couples in pretty much 'natural' states considering they were dementia facilities, and still gotta hand it to the ladies.

I would hazard a guess that most guys who have been married have seen their wives in in all sorts of states. I know, for myself, my first introduction, long before being married, was holding my then girlfriend's hair in recovery while she puked into a bucket after waking up from anesthesia. It doesn't get more natural than that IMO. Still, she was always beautiful to me and I can still say that way down the road of marital strife and divorce. Reality was undeniable. Sure she looked beaten up by the surgery but that's part of being human.

Also, working in the image industry, she was constantly analyzing and commenting on female beauty and image so I got an inside look at what some women go through for the image stuff. Most painful? The dreaded wax pot! I got a taste of that on more than one occasion taking one for the team with 'undesirable hair'. For some women, normal maintenance. Not me brother....
