New evidence for early learning of sexual preferences

We have recently posted on our sex research blog the results of our latest survey on sexual preferences. We surveyed sexual attraction to such traits as tattoos, eyeglasses, eye color, skin tone, stature, heir lenght, hair color, body type, long nails, painted nails, eyeglasses, tattoos, body hair, facial hair, armpit hair, and smoking. We found evidence that heterosexual individuals often prefer traits they have seen during their childhood in the parent of the other sex. That is, heterosexual males appear to prefer traits found in their mother, while heterosexual females trait found in their father.

A summary of this study and of previous ones on early learning of sexual prefernces is provided in Hanna Aronsson’s Ph.D. thesis introduction.
