Study: Ugly Men More Fertile, Produce More Sperm During Sex
Foxnews ^ | 7/10/2009 | Staff

Posted on 07/10/2009 9:43:39 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA

Women wanting to get pregnant should find themselves an ugly man, new research suggests.

Scientists have found attractive males produce less sperm during sex.

Researchers think good-looking males are biologically geared to hold back their sperm in each encounter to increase their chance of impregnating more females.

But unattractive males know they are not going to bed so many females — so when they do get lucky they give it all they've got.

I feel that now is a good time to announce that I don’t have any children.

Is the researcher ugly or handsome?

I have two quick conclusions:

1) The scientists who did this study are ugly.
2) The scientists who did this study are stupid.

First, what an outstanding piece of journalism. Tabloid Pulitzer coming your way.

Second, I am sure the next question on the minds of engaged intelligent readers was “what do ugly females increase?”

Hangovers, my friend. Hangovers.

What about handsome guys like me who save their sperm for only one special female?

So, uhmmm... I'm neither terribly good or bad looking, but I have a great interest in gaining the ability that ugly men have.
I believe it will impress my girl.
Are there any products available to assist me in this endeavor?
Risky internet offers would be considered.

I wonder if they’ve taken into account guys like Mick Jagger and Steven Tyler, who are 1)ugly as sin, but 2) well aware that they can get some whenever they want

“Attractiveness” is subjective. Saying that “good-looking males are biologically geared to hold back their sperm” is absurd since there is no way that a person's bio systems could know that they are “good-looking”. This article has got to be one of the most ridiculous “scientific” reports that I've ever seen.

I won't argue with the data, but this "explanation" is ridiculous.

How do a guy's testicles "know" he's ugly?

“Ugly” and “attractive” are subjective characteristics assigned by HUMANS. They have nothing whatsoever to do with physiology.

I call BS on this and want to know what the author looks like. Sounds like he is using his grant dollars to troll for chicks.

there are indeed a whole host of issues as to exactly what the scientific method would call for in such an experiment as this.....

So ... to compile data for this study, how exactly did they ‘hook up’ the ugly guys? I think a lot of grant money was recycled into the ‘personal services’ industry.

For the sake of the ladies I think we should all confess the number of children we have.

None for me.

A study should also be done on how stupid men and women have more kids. Idiocracy. It’s not just a movie. It’s the truth.

That is undoubtedly wrong. There are all manner of studies showing the correlation between mating success and "beauty marks" such as plumage or colors, across numerous species.

If you wanna be happy after your first date
Never make a handsome man your mate
Go for my personal point of view
Get an ugly man to marry you

Gal 1: say lady
Gal 2: hey lady
Gal 1: I saw your husband the other day
Gal 2: Yeah
Gal 1: Yeah and he's ugly
Gal 2: Yeah he's ugly but he sure churns out the sperm
Gal 1: Yeah

“Mating success” is different than “Ugly”.

As someone else noted, Mick Jagger is ugly but he is able to get around constraints imposed by nature through material means.

They need to follow that up with a study on ugly guys that have a lot of money.

well, kinda. there are certain physical attributes that are accepted by science as "attractive."

the biggest one is symmetry. both sides of the face are the same. the next is proportion, alignment, good hip ratios, etc... if an individual has these attributes, they are more likely to be what we call "attractive."
