Are men with deeper voices more likely to cheat? A new study says, yes.
Men with a deep, baritone voice — think Johnny Cash or Bruce Springsteen — may be seen as more attractive, but they are also perceived as more likely to cheat on their partners, according to women who were surveyed as part of a study at McMaster University in Hamilton.
The study also says, high and low voices were analyzed by the 87 female participants to determine which men were best suited for marriage and those better for a brief fling. The women also determined those likely to be unfaithful.
The attraction to the deep voice, despite the higher likelihood of cheating, may result from women having different priorities depending on the length of relationship they seek. When asked who was more attractive for long or short relationships, the women involved in the study were more likely to pick men with a deep voice for casual brief encounters as opposed to a significant lasting relationship.
"I think I would agree with it to a certain point. I had two boyfriends and the one with the deeper voice cheated on me," said Alyssa Moore.
