Scientists have spoken, so now we really know the impact of your height on your bedroom action. And sorry guys, it turns out the inches count.
The age old view is that women go for men who are tall, and now scientists have proved there’s something in it.
Apparently, how tall you are really does have a big impact on the amount of between-the-sheets action you get, The Sun has reported.
According to a UK based newspaper, a team at Chapman University in California took a look at the sexual habits of 60,000 people, so this study is nothing to be sniffed at.
They found a person’s height does have an impact on their sex life, with taller men tending to have more partners.
On top of that, the shortest men had the smallest amount of conquests.
Guys who were between 5ft 8in and 5ft 10in were deemed shorter than average, and they tended to have one to three less partners than others.
“Research has repeatedly shown that women prefer men who are slightly taller than they are,” Dr. David Frederick, who worked on the research, explained.
“It is possible that for most women there is a certain minimal threshold of height, after which they will consider a male as a potential sex partner, and thus men above that height will end up with similar numbers of sex partners.”
All interesting enough, but what’s the reason women seem more drawn to lofty guys?
Well, as with a lot of this sort of stuff, it’s probably down to evolution.
When humans still lived in caves, a man’s height was proof of how healthy they were. The general thinking was guys who were tall had great genes and were in good condition, how else would they be able to grow so much otherwise?
Short men shouldn’t get too stressed out though, it’s probably not time to start reaching for the Cuban heels just yet.
That’s because even though women like a tall guy, they are also big on personality.
The same goes for men, with both sexes insisting “kindness and understanding” are the things they are more likely to look for when trying to find long-term love.
