Hormones dictate what women are attracted to and a new study claims the birth control pill has given rise to pretty boy preference over rugged he-men!
Scientists have discovered in a new study how the hormones in the oral contraceptive suppress a woman’s interest in masculine men and make boyish men more attractive.
With the oral conception being in vogue for 40 years the shift in taste for sexual fantasy has shifted dramatically from rugged, manly men like Steve McQueen and Sean Connery in the mid 20th Century to the effeminate fey charms of pretty boy “hotties” like Zac Efron and Chace Crawford today.
Dr. Alexandra Alvergne of the University of Sheffield disagrees with the theory it may have more to do with the media marketing non-threatening male figures to pre-pubescent Tiger Beat girls.
"There are many obvious benefits of the Pill for women, but there is also the possibility that the Pill has psychological side-effects that we are only just discovering."
