The shape of your face may reveal more about your sex life than you want it to, according to a new scientific study.
Psychologists at the Nipissing University in Canada reckon that people with rounder, wider faces are more sexually motivated and may actually boast a stronger sex drive than their slim-faced counterparts.
Steven Arnocky and his team of researchers discovered the positive link between facial width-to-height ratio and sex drive after conducting two experiments.
A total of 457 male and female test subjects involved in romantic relationships were studied as part of the research, which was published in the Archives of Sexual Behaviour.
The psychologists found that those with a higher width-to-height ratio in the face department claimed to have a higher sex drive than others.
Interesting, the link was similar for both men and women, though there was one notable difference.
Big faced men tended to be more open open to the idea of casual sex but, more alarmingly, also the idea of cheating on their partner at some point in the future.
Arnocky told Eureka Alert: “Together, these findings suggest that facial characteristics might convey important information about human sexual motivations.”
Does the research help explain why rounder, wider faced celebs like Leonardo DiCaprio are known for being such lady killers? Should John Legend be worried about Chrissy Teigen.
Probably not. He is John Legend, after all. It’s probably worth taking these studies with a pinch of salt.
