A new study from the University of California, Los Angeles, showed that heterosexual women may prefer masculine men. Never fear. This preference exists only when they are ovulating – a few days a month- and do not see them as suitable for long-term partners.
Published in the Psychological Bulletin, their research suggests that the desire for masculine features during ovulation may be a result of genetic evolution. Their research attempted to answer where heterosexual women change their preference in men during their most fertile point of their cycle. Fifty published and unpublished studies were reviewed to investigate this association.
