Straight Men on Dating Apps Peak at 50, While Straight Women Peak at 18!
A new study published in the journal Science Advances examines the sexual desirability of men and women seeking women and men, respectively, The New York Times reports.
Researchers followed 200,000 users on a “popular, free online-dating service” for a month, tracking the number of messages they received.
Based on this data, the researchers determined that men’s sexual desirability peaks at 50, while women’s sexual desirability peaks at 18 “and falls from there.”
“The age gradient for women definitely surprised us—both in terms of the fact that it steadily declined from the time women were 18 to the time they were 65, and also how steep it was,” study author Elizabeth Bruch of the University of Michigan told the Times.
