Three years ago (that’s right, three years ago; what), researchers at Columbia spent a week trolling hotornot.com to study the relationship between an individual’s sexual attractiveness and his sexual priorities. The groundbreaking results showed that ugly people “seemed more desperate” and “more likely to respond ‘yes’ to any date requests.”
For every point that a member’s attractiveness decreased on the 1 to 10 hotness scale, there was a 25% increase in that member’s willingness to accept potential dates. The hot members were pickier, only accepting dates from fellow hotties.
Yes, it’s obvious stuff — but the conclusion is rather interesting. While ugly people are willing to accept dates from fellow uglies, the researchers say, “they do not delude themselves into thinking that these less attrractive others are, in fact, physically attractive.” This means that beauty is in fact not in the eye of the beholder. Rather, we take what we can get.
To cope with their limited playing fields, the study shows that ugly people shift their critera for sexual partners. They “basically switch what they care about and they start caring less about beauty and more about sense of humor.” Or, if they’re anything like us, uglies relent and convince themselves that a really big dick more than makes up for a fugly pock-marked face.
As for hotties, because they are able to make attractiveness a high priority, they do. (The only time gay hotties break this rule is when they’re going after Lance Bass.)
