Women prefer Barry White

This is a great study published in Hormones & Behaviour: when looking for a mate, women are more likely to go for deep, gravelly voiced men like Barry White. But we all new Barry White was the man, right? Deep, masculine, dominant voices have long been thought linked to high levels of testosterone, higher reproductive success and long-term health. What’s novel about this study is that it appears that for many women their preference for deeper voices was strongest during their fertile phase, which ties in with previous observations that many women prefer men with more masculine faces during the same period.
