Scars Of Humpdays Past

Semi-interesting tidbit for you to chew on briefly, then spit out because all studies like this are tainted with a little crap.

Researchers investigated how scarring might impact on mate choice for men and women seeking both long-term and short-term relationships. They found that women preferred men with facial scars for short-term relationships and equally preferred scarred and un-scarred faces for long-term relationships. Men, however, regarded women with and without facial scars as equally attractive for both types of relationship.

The participants for this study were recruited at a Harley Davidson swap meet.

Other characteristics that made a man more attractive for short-term relationships but not long term; "one percenter" patch on biker club vest, genital piercings.

Men remained indifferent to these characteristics, as well as whether or not the 'old lady' in question had more or less than the standard number of fingers and feet, whether she had facial hair, or whether she was merely a macabre leather scarecrow stuffed with hay and squashes.
