Men find red color aphrodisiac

You may have heard it before, but it’s also scientifically proved: men believe the red color on a woman is aphrodisiac. According to researchers Andrew J. Elliot and Daniela Niesta, from the University of Rochester, men are attracted with women dressed in red, though they don’t realize it.

Researchers showed men pictures with a woman dressed in black and white, on a background colored in red, white, gray or green, and pictures of a woman in a blue and a red blouse. More than 56 percent of the men involved said that the woman dressed or highlighted in red was sexier, and they would ask her out.

The reason why men are attracted by red has biological roots, according to psychologists, as male animals are attracted to females displaying red when they are ovulating.
