According to a new study that is focused on the laws of attraction between the two opposite sexes, men would omit condoms during sex if the women are attractive.
Anastasia Eleftheriou, a graduate student at the University of Southampton, and her team of experts made a new study that shows a connection between a woman`s appeal and a man`s willingness to engage in unprotected sex. The investigation used computer simulations to observe how perceived attractiveness can influence certain sexual behaviors.
This discovery may not come as a surprise since previous studies showed that women are equally inclined to skip condoms when engaging in a sexual relationship with men they consider to be attractive.
What is surprising is that the same female participants in the previous surveys believed attractive men are more likely to have an STI than the average looking men.
For the study carried out by the team led by Anastasia Eleftheriou, 51 heterosexual male participants were asked to evaluate on a scale from zero to one hundred the attractiveness of 20 women.
The same men were required to rate on a scale from zero to one hundred the probability of using a condom if the opportunity to engage in sexual intercourse with the women portrayed in the photographs would be given to them.
The third requirement was to approximate what percentage of men out of 100 males would use a condom if given the opportunity to have sex with these women.
Eventually, all participants were asked to rate on a scale from one to one hundred the chances of contracting a sexually transmitted disease if ever given the opportunity to have sex with these women.
After all these questions, all 51 participants answered several questions about their sexual history and all of them were asked to evaluate their perceived attractiveness about themselves.
The outcome of this survey showed that most men would omit condoms if given the opportunity to have sex with the women they rated as being the most attractive.
Also, the fact that a high percentage of men out of 100 males would omit condoms whenever having sex with the attractive women did not influence their decision to engage in unprotected sex was surprising.
However, the experts found that a man`s perception of his appeal was inversely proportional with his intention to use a condom.
The fact that men would omit condoms with attractive women could hardly be explained by experts.
