There was no evidence that men could be too pumped up — the stronger they were, the better they looked to women.

There was no evidence that some had different tastes — all 160 women preferred the stronger-looking men.

“This suggests that women also treat lean and tall men as more attractive for reasons other than just fighting ability.”
