Holding a Puppy Makes Men 24% Sexier . . . Cats Make Women Less Sexy
Cat lovers are going to hate this study. Researchers recently had people judge how attractive strangers were by looking at pictures of them with different PETS. And having a DOG makes you seem much sexier than having a cat.
The sexiest pet to have if you’re a man is a PUPPY. People thought guys were 24% sexier when they were holding a puppy . . . 14% more trustworthy . . . 7% smarter . . . and 14% more attractive overall.
Cats only made guys 5% sexier. Kittens had even LESS of an effect, at 4%.
Once that puppy grows up, it won’t have much of an effect though. Small and medium dogs only made guys 3% sexier, and large dogs only gave them a 2% boost. But overall, guys were seen as slightly more attractive with dogs than cats.
If you’re a WOMAN, the sexiest pet to have is a MEDIUM-SIZED DOG. They made women seem 7% sexier . . . 7% more trustworthy . . . 6% smarter . . . and 7% more attractive overall.
Posing with a cat actually made women slightly LESS sexy, and kittens basically had no effect. Puppies gave women a 3% boost in sexiness . . . small dogs, 4% . . . and large dogs, 3%.
