Psychologists from Australia and the United States have learned about the characteristics of the male body are the most attractive to women. The results of a study published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

In the experiment, which was conducted by scientists from Griffith University and the University of California, involved more than 150 women. They showed pictures of half-naked men and asked to rate their attractiveness.

As it turned out, how the man is muscular, in 70% of cases determines the level of its attractiveness. Height and weight are only slightly influenced the choice of the fair sex. Women prefer slim men with broad shoulders.
