Science now says this man, Ian Somerhalder, is unattractive. Well, sort of.
A new study I saw over at TheAwl.com found that when looking at pictures of men, people thought of the ones with brown eyes as more dominant, an evolutionary characteristic that attracts us to sexual partners. What’s weirder is even after they Photoshopped the blue eyes brown, they still found the men whose eyes were naturally brown more dominant. The researchers theorize that the same genes responsible for eye color may somehow effect the production of testosterone, or perhaps blue eyed kids are treated differently while they’re growing up.
Strange, right? So let’s get back to Ian (who you may recognize from* Vampire Diaries* and Lost) with his hypnotic blue eyes. Is he dominant-looking here? I don’t know. But I wouldn’t mind having him come over and not be dominant in my apartment for awhile. So I’m not sure I agree with their findings.
If you’re curious, you can read about the details of the study here. Then come back and chat. Do you notice guys’ eye color? Are you attracted to any particular color? Are you in love with Ian Somerhalder and think “science” should suck it?
