Men are more likely to think of sex when they meet a woman for the first time, according to a study that says high sexual rating is closely tied to physical attractiveness.
Maurice Levesque and other researchers studied 43 men and 43 women and found that when a man and woman meet for the first time, men may be more likely to think about sex - or at least more likely to admit it, reported the online edition of health magazine WebMD.
Levesque worked on the study while at the University of Connecticut and now works in the psychology department of North Carolina's Elon University.
First, participants completed surveys designed to gauge masculinity and femininity about themselves. Then researchers paired men and women who didn't know each other. Each pair sat at a table for two and chatted for five minutes.
The researchers gave the pairs a little advice: Break the ice by introducing yourself, and then talk about positive and negative college experiences.
Afterwards, the pairs split up. But before going their separate ways, they completed surveys about their partner and their brief conversation.
Men rated their female partner as more sexual, particularly if they found her physically attractive, than the women who rated their male partner, the researchers said.
