I n a study that could explain so much about the Brian Williams thing, it has been found that women are more sexually attracted to men who have been deemed heroic during conflict than men who have merely served in the armed forces. Meanwhile, women who were considered heroic for any reason were found to be less attractive to men than regular women. You read that right. Less attractive.
The findings are the result of three studies done by researchers in England and the Netherlands. First, the researchers established from archives that World War II veterans who were Medal of Honor winners had more kids on average 3. The of offspring is not completely correlated with the frequency of springing into bed, however. So the researchers asked 92 female British students to rate how attracted they were to various profiles and the war hero came out as the No. Military service was attractive to women generally, but interestingly, if the guy had no war honors, whether he had served overseas or never left home base made no difference to his magnetism.
In the third study, women and men studying in Holland were given various profiles to rate and again the decorated war veteran was the female favorite. Soldiers who had been honored for their work in disaster zones or humanitarian crises got no spike in interest.
The researchers were looking at the impact of medals not to enhance the dating s of veterans, but to examine the effect of conflict and bravery on evolution. Those who attract the most mating partners have the highest chance of passing on their genes. So why are women drawn to guys who are demonstrably willing to engage in life threatening behavior? The thinking is that those who have the clarity of thought to try something life-saving and the physical prowess to pull it off must be built to survive, and are therefore a good evolutionary bet. Leunissen also seems to offer, perhaps unintentionally, some eggheady advice on whether women should be on the front lines.
