Research shows squids won't get laid...

Women 'not impressed' by daredevils

Daredevil men, who believe they can attract women with their reckless behaviour, should think again. A survey of 100 men and women by researchers at the University of Maine, showed women are not impressed by bungee jumping and other risky types of behaviour but actually prefer men who take fewer chances.

"Men thought women would be impressed by pointless gambles, but women in fact preferred cautious men," New Scientist magazine said today.

One theory to explain risky male behaviour is that men are showing off their strength and bravery to woo potential partners. But researcher William Farthing said women prefer high-status males to risk-takers.

"So if he has higher status among other men, women might like him for his status, even though they don't like risk-taking itself," he said.

I wonder what age groups they asked this question of. I would guess that younger women would be more impressed by risk-takers than older ones. If all they interviewed were older ones then the results are not very surprising.

Now that was spot on

I was thinking, maybe younger chicks who are more whorish think they need to find guys who are more willing to take risks b/c of the fun STDs that could be passed on

I think it just proves women care more about grabbing money than they do about having a good time

You're close....but grabbing the money is the good time for them.

I agree with the Spicer dude on this one.


But first, that survey was done in Maine. Look on a map where Maine is located in the United States. What do they have - 2 good riding months a year? So immediately I don't pay attention to the survey.

The next thing is...they must've interviewed a retirement home. When I was riding back in the states, the amount of vagina that was to be found just by going out and riding in your little group was phenominal as I'm sure you all have experienced as well.


I just have trouble believing anything that comes from a state like Maine which according to 2000's census, has only 600,000-some women.

But like Scott said, the women were prolly a little older and wiser.

And they polled only 100 men and women.

This represents about 0.00003% of the US population of around 295,000,000.

IMO, this is because guys who take fewer chances will live longer, and thus be able to purchase more items over a longer period of time to give to the women in exchange for the ever-precious poonanner.

Bitter? No, I'm not bitter.

There are a few things we are forgetting to take into account.

1. The man a woman would want to settle with, and the man a woman wants to bang are not always the same.
2. The man a woman wants to bang, and the man a woman will say she wants to bang, are never the same.


Nay I'm not bitter either.
