Women’s preferences for men’s facial masculinity are strongest under favorable ecological conditions
"Participants’ age positively predicted preferences for facial masculinity, suggesting that older participants were more likely to prefer facial masculinity. Similarly, there was a significant, positive relationship between participant SOI and facial masculinity preferences, such that sociosexually unrestricted women preferred more facially masculine men. There was also a significant, positive association between the Health/Development factor and facial masculinity preference, such that as the health of a nation and/or development increased, preference for facial masculinity increased (Fig. 1). There was no significant association between the Inequality factor and facial masculinity preference. "
God I wish we knew the specific age of the women used in the study it seems as there is an age cut off where women begin to prefer more masculine faces etc. probably explains the prettyboy phenomena and why shit like kpop is mostly prevalent in 14-16 year old girls and why most 18-20+ prefer more masc men, dimorphism, height, frame, muscle etc. as I guess their sexuality develops in a sense.
Also I guess in low socioeconomic places where its more "winner takes all" and gang fights etc. it makes sense for more masculne features to be valued especially when it comes to standing your ground.
