Study reveals sexual appeal of war heroes

11 marzo 2015

Women are more attracted to war heroes than regular soldiers or men who display heroic traits in other fields, such as in sports or natural disaster work, according to new research. The findings also suggest that men did not find heroism to be a sexually attractive trait in women. In the study, 92 women studying in the UK were presented with hypothetical profiles of the opposite sex, representing varying levels of heroism in different contexts such as warfare, sport and business.
