Glass! Under my feet!

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.

To quantify their subjectsā€™ desirability, researchers followed 200,000 users on a ā€œpopular, free online-dating serviceā€ for a month, tracking the number of messages they received.

Based on this data, the researchers determined that menā€™s sexual desirability peaks at 50, while womenā€™s sexual desirability peaks at 18 ā€œand falls from there.ā€

Shards! Shards of glass! Shining, sparkling, shards of glass!

ā€œThe age gradient for women definitely surprised usā€”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,ā€ study author Elizabeth Bruch of the University of Michigan told the Times.
