    Study: Men say they’re less inclined to use condoms if a female partner is attractive
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...artner-is-hot/


    What do you all think, is this true?
    FEMINISM is a HATE GROUP - Feminists are HATEFUL PEOPLE
    It's time to call it out for what it is.

    What do you all think, is this true?
    Nah. They asked 51 men in Britain, and want to generalize this to 3 000 000 000 men...?
    The study material reveals that more than half of the men did not previously use condoms, anyway, in 50 - 90 % of encounters.
    No attempt was made to see if it was these risk takers who were the risk takers here, too.
    IOW, not using a condom could be a habit, and could be totally unconnected to any woman's attractiveness.
    And the idea that nobody might want to impregnate an unattractive woman was never even mentioned.

    Of course the WP article is worse than the study; which you can tell really easily when the first three words are "Men who whine" ...
    Just a few lines in, it is revealed that the same holds for women, perhaps even stronger: http://hpq.sagepub.com/content/18/9/1166
    The more attractive the man, the more willing women are to forego any precaution.
    That doesn't affect the headline, though. For the women, it's "allure", not "risk", of course.

    To explain what happens, one of the co-authors states:
    "To explain the apparent incongruity, Eleftheriou’s co-author Roger Ingham, a sexual health expert at the University of Southampton, offered two possible reasons. First, it is lack of contraception as an evolutionary holdover, he wrote to The Washington Post in an email. That is, “men want to reproduce with women they find to be more attractive,” he said. Or it could be that young men attach high status to having sex with attractive women, “and so are willing to take more risk to acquire this status."

    Which is plausible enough. But then:

    "Ingham points out that sex ed traditionally assumes people are rational actors, but studies like this one show that is not the case when a man thinks about having sex with an attractive woman."

    The idea that risking an STI for the chance to have sex with, or even impregnate, an attractive women could be the most rational choice is not even considered. There is an unspoken normative assumption that the highest preference is to avoid an STI.

    But it ain't necessarily so.

    IOW: SSNW.

      Double-edged sword for men.

      Attractive women get all the sex they want, and at the risk of stating the frickken obvious, are likelier to be fucked in an unguarded moment (her cycle, when she's tipsy or emo vulnerable) than an ugly women is. The other edge is that they're generally dumber than ugly women, meaning more likely to have unprotected sex, and of course men are likelier to want to impregnate her too, all adding up to higher risk.

      They STILL haven't cured Aids; wear a condom. It's as simple as that.
      >>"and in other news, the Judge in the case of AVFM Vs Feminazism ruled today that the creators of 'Gender Equality' are guilty of Intent to Obtain Social Change by Deception. The Feminazi case collapsed just one day into the trial, after a 1st year medical student demonstrated that men are not, in fact, equal to women".<<
