An Anthropologist Talks Beauty, Sex, Orgasms, and Why We Shouldn’t Live in Sweatpants
December 18, 2019
Do women tend to have more orgasms with men who are better-looking (i.e.,symmetrical)? Are people who date on the Internet more likely to be looking for commitment? Is the waist-hip ratio still a factor? The relationships between beauty, sex, and love are more than fascinating when you’re talking about them with anthropologist and author Helen Fisher, who’s also the scientific advisor to Match.com. She tells us some pretty wild things about attraction, dating, physical appearance, keeping the spark going in long-term relationships (sweatpants: not ideal), and the ways in which many of our urges are driven by biology. At the end of the day, it turns out beauty’s all about love.
