Hank delves into the scientific reasons behind why we are attracted to the people we're attracted to. It's complicated.

This isn’t working out, our Major Histocompatibility Complexes are too similar to each other. I’m sorry it had to end like this. *struggles to keep eyelids open while tears overflow from guilt and sadness* Thank u, next.
i wonder if psychological conditioning also plays a role in what we are attracted too... its always interested me why fashion has such changes and why we see out dated fashion as weird, ugly, or in some cases fashionable again. the idea that certain clothing choices are more sexy than others and why this idea is mainly centered around women rather than men is an interesting thing. why are fishnets more sexy than bare legs? why are swim suits modest but undergarments are not, why is a piece of clothing that covers skin modest but something that does not? it's all in our heads i think and the way advertising and groups of people behave. it's really weird and interesting, would love to know more about it all.
2:20 But I prefer ethnically Swedish girls (I live in Sweden, I see them everyday) but I am ethnically Kurdish/Turkish, I am genetically nothing like them, how come?
EDIT: Wait, it has to do with how they smell genetically, got to watch the video again...
I think one of the biggest things for me was her interest in me. I was 21 when I met my wife and hadn’t had much of a good relationship life up until that time. I’d dated a few women and they were nice, but then I met my wife to whom I’ve been married 14yrs now. I didn’t really get to see her (it was darker when we met), so we didn’t really get to see the symmetry or lack thereof in each other. However, we did get to talk and get to know one another. The best thing that turned me on to her was the fact that she expressed interest in me. And the rest ... was history. Love at first sight and happily ever after.
sexy? hum idk i have a large strike zone she just needs the right combo face hair and chest in proper proportions relative to her structure
my only real deal breakers are tattoos and big belly those are both GTFOs
LMAO he keeps using terms like ''evolutionary standpoint'', ''evolved'' etc. as if the dispute over Intelligent Design or evolution is over and humanity (or its majority) has renounced God, Creation and morality....
Hate nerdy sci-ency dudes like this one pretending they have all the answers with zero humility while neglecting the FACT HE probably will not get his ''genes'' passed on because of the whole dorkiness thing going for him which would never attract a real woman
After criticising and demeaning my opinion (by ''correcting'' it) all the while replying out of context to what I said you wish me a nice day... Well aren't you a hypocritical sweetheart!
PS: Religious or not when you preach about something arbitrary instead of offering your subjective opinion you show zero humility
1 most women actually want a guy with a brain.
2 the fackt that a person isnt religious doesn't mean they don't have morals ore humility.
(sorry i just had to say it)
i hope you have a nice day even tho we don't agree 😁
Doesn't explain why I go weak at the knees, heart palpitations when I see a man with red hair, any shade, pale white skin and freckles or blondes. Also red or blonde eyelashes drive me wild.
Turn off is skinny emaciated body, hairy backs blubbery fat. Discretion prevents me from further elaboration ;-)
I agree there is a confusion in the genes as it has nothing to do with procreation.
A charismatic and witty person. Possibly because we humans are pack animals, if someone won't get well with other people and/or doesn't show at least average intellect, they probably won't do well in our society, thus being a bad bag of genes to mate with.
The conclusion I've come to on this is that it is entirely impossible to predict other people's sexual predispositions, so trying to make yourself appealing to others is pointless. The only sexual selector that is reliable is confidence; confidence works sometimes, which is a hell of a lot more reliable than any of the others.
So make yourself into what you think beautiful is. That way you'll feel confident, and those who feel confident tend to look confident.
where in the human body do we sense pheromones? is it in the nose; if so what cell cluster and location is it at and is that cell cluster active and of a size that can be used by average air volume in the human nose?
"Symmetrical imbalance can mean somebody was exposed to some kind of stressor during early development that they weren't tough enough to deal with."
What is this statement based on? Can someone link the studies backing it up?
This video says we give off pheromones and we’re attracted to those that are genetically similar to us, (excluding the immune system) but SciShow also has another video where they state that no human pheromone has ever been identified or found?? Is there an explanation for this?
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
