Do women really prefer muscular men?

It’s one of those questions, isn’t it? What research has come up with is easy to summarize: most men who take on to building their muscles do it in order to get themselves a sexual partner easier, but there are also those who do it simply because they are high powered achievers by nature. So which one of these two types do women prefer, if at all one of them? The latter category is made of men pumped with testosterone, determination, strength, and the right attitude. Pair all these things with bada$$ muscles, and there you have him – the alpha male many women do indeed slobber for. He’s Mars in Scorpio on steroids, he’s the guy everybody wants to be around, men and women alike.

But is it enough to keep her? Research but also my personal inquiries (which include a sample of 22 women who have at least once had a sexual relationship with a muscular man) that if the respective man does display the qualities of the second type (high-powered achievers, alpha makes), they want them in the long run, and they do have priority.

But this type of man is rather the exception than the rule. More often then not, the gals run into type one, namely muscle-on-demand type of over-groomed divas. This type of man often comes with an unhealthy dose of narcissism that we gals rarely take into account. Here, gals do tend to get rid of the men after a night or two, and look for another type of masculinity that satisfies them on more profound levels.

Me, I do indeed go for the high powered achiever, alpha-male type of man in my romances, and often go for the muscles, too, but not always. Damian Novac in the The Executioner is a muscle tank, but the upcoming Marquis is more of a dark Dorian Gray type of lad. A dazzling boy of obscure powers. So alpha masculinity isn’t always in the bicep, not even in the romance novel world.

How about you guys? What is your experience with this topic? I’d love to read about your view on this.

 

What does your Shadow say about you? – Personality Test

Welcome to a new personality test that will help you explore yet further the depths of your psyche. Today we have a special treat. The word “shadow” is a powerful one in psychology, and the associations we make to it say a lot about who we are – or fear to be. So, as always, I’ll ask you to please take a look at the book titles (or potential book titles) below, and decide which one would best suit a book in which you’d play the protagonist! As always, please try to enter a relaxed state of mind, in which you can feel rather than make your decision.

  1. Silver Shadow
  2. The Shadow Prince/ess
  3. Beyond the Shadow
  4. The Shadow God
  5. The Name of the Shadow

Interpretations:

  1. Your demons are in the open. You don’t really fear them, nor do you find them ugly. You may be quite comfortable with your dark side. Saying you wear your heart on your sleeve may be a bit overboard, but you’re a sincere personality.
  2. You know you have valuable strengths. Ambition and confidence are words that define you. You may be somewhat manipulative when you deem it necessary, and you don’t really feel bad about it either.
  3. You’re an explorer – especially of your own soul and those you care about. You may be a good “therapist” kind of friend. Beware of energy vampires – some people are all about complaining and poison, and may abuse your powers and kindness.
  4. You feel the human being has limitless potential. Deep down you believe in the divine character of humans, and you’re willing to start on the tough journey of discovering and unlocking. You may feel that humans are descendants of gods.
  5. You’re extremely profound. You may have a love of reading, with special interest in philosophy and mythology. For many people you’re a delight to talk to, and quite fascinating. You’re mysterious and maybe compelling.

I’m cat-curious what you got, so please leave a comment with your choice if you feel comfortable sharing.

Shocking Psychology Facts

Here is another top 5 Shocking Psychology Facts! And we’ll keep them coming, folks 🙂

  1. Critique harms more than it helps. Even a perfectionist will be caused to under perform if they’re criticized. There is no such thing as “constructive criticism.” If we are to criticize, we should start with praise, continue with our points of critique, and conclude with further praise.
  2. The bystander effect. When people are uncertain, they do what they see others doing, thinking that if others do it, it must be the right thing. That’s why people often stand around and watch other people being mugged or beaten – it’s often not fear, but self-doubt, mistrust in the own perception, which causes them to do what they see others do around them.
  3. People tend to be more honest when they feel someone is watching them, even if it’s only a picture on a wall.
  4. Depression doesn’t only affect the mind, but also the body. Studies show that “severe” depression causes cells to age, and makes people more susceptible to age-related disease.
  5. There is little difference between being in love and having obsessive-compulsive disorder. The biochemical reactions are almost identical.
