Men prefer condomless sex with pretty women

LONDON — Men are less likely to use a condom if they find their partner very attractive, a new study says.

The study tried to better comprehend the relationship between perceived attractiveness and condom use intentions in a heterosexual male population between ages 18-69.

The study, led by Anastasia Eleftheriou, a graduate student in software engineering at the University of Southampton in England, was published in the journal BMJ Open.

The more attractive a participant judged himself to be, the less likely he was to intend to use a condom, the results showed.

In the study, 51 men were asked to rate the attractiveness of 20 women on the basis of facial photographs, to estimate the likelihood that each woman had a sexually transmitted infection (STI) and to indicate their willingness to have sex with or without a condom with each woman.

Protection methods get thrown out of the window when it comes to one-night stands with pretty women, experts discovered.

The researchers found that more attractive a woman was judged to be on average, the more likely participants would be willing to have sex with her and the less likely they were to intend to use a condom during sex.

“Male perceptions of attractiveness influence their condom use intentions,” the study said.
“Such risk biases could profitably be discussed during sex education sessions and in condom use promotion interventions,” the researchers noted.

The more attractive a man considered a woman to be, the less likely it was that he would intend to use a condom during sex with her, even if he thought the woman had a sexually transmitted infection, the findings showed.

The researchers also found that when a man judged a woman to be less attractive, he was more willing to use a condom.

The risk of unprotected sex also goes up when a man considers himself to be attractive, the study suggests.
