Be Kind: Altruistic People Have the Most Sex

Be Kind: Altruistic People Have the Most Sex:

Nice guys finish last, but that’s only because they make sure their partner finishes first—and that’s why they have the most sex. According to a recent study, altruistic people have more sex, and it’s not exactly a mystery why, even though we tend to think of lotharios and maneaters with the most prevalent sex lives. People want altruistic individuals because people want altruistic lovers. They care more about the other person than “getting theirs.”

In a British Journal of Psychology study by Steven Arnocky and his colleagues, 192 unmarried women and 105 unmarried men gave a rundown of whether they do things like donate blood, give money to charity, and help others across the street. They then answered questions about about their sexual history. and it turned out there was a correlation between altruistism and interest from the opposite sex.

The potential for the study’s collapse is that people who hype their sex lives may also boast about being altruistic. I mean, what’s cooler than a super nice person having lots of sex? Therefore, a second study went into effect, surveying 335 undergrads to learn about their sexual histories while tracking measurements of narcissism. The results were clear in this one too, that altruistic tendencies correlated with more sex. The more altruistic men and women of the study had more casual sex partners in the past year and a likely higher count of them over the course of their lifetime, though gender differences still worked their way in.

STUDY: “The present study provides the first empirical evidence that altruism may tangibly benefit mating in humans living in Western industrialised society and that sex differences might exist with respect to the utility of altruism for mating, whereby it is a more effective signal for men than for women.”

So be nice to people, because there’s a better chance they’re going to see you naked.
