The Internet Affects Who You Find Attractive

The amount of time you spend online affects you more than you think. A new study reveals that women who spend a lot of time online prefer more masculine looking men, while men prefer more feminine, thinner women. When people from El Salvador, which has few people with internet access, were asked to choose photos of the most attractive faces they were more likely to name feminine men and masculine, heavier women as more attractive.

Study leader Carlota Batres explains the differences in preference, saying, "People with internet access are more exposed to the media, which promotes the beauty ideals of muscly men and thin, feminine women. Our findings are also consistent with previous literature that has found that heavier figures are considered more attractive in poorer and rural areas."
