Why men prefer women in red

A new research has added colour - literally and figuratively - to the age-old question of what attracts men to women - it's red.

Yes, men really do prefer a lady in red - because they think they will sleep with the woman on first date, according to a team of researchers from the University of South Brittany in France.

The researchers have based their findings on an analysis of 120 male students, aged 18 to 21, and split them into four groups. Each volunteer spent 30 seconds looking at an image of the same 20-year-old woman but the colour of her top varied from red, blue, green or white. The students then completed a questionnaire which asked them to rate, on a scale of one to nine, how attractive they thought the woman was. They also had to rate her in terms of how likely they thought it was that she would have sex with a man on the first date, 'The Daily Telegraph' reported.

The findings revealed that most thought choosing to wear red meant a woman had "greater sexual intent" and was more likely to jump into bed with a man.

Also the item of clothing in question does not need to be a revealing top as volunteers were asked to judge sexual intent based only on the colour of an ordinary T-shirt.
