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

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.

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.

Um, exactly how did the researchers determine which chickens and fish were the ugly ones?

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.....

GMTA — and at exactly the same time, too. I guess your post was one bit ahead of mine ...

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.
