The truth is that mate selection is not just a cultural phenomenon
The truth is that mate selection is not just a cultural phenomenon, but rather, biological determined. To understand the biology of beauty, you must always remember to head straight for the genes.
Some like it hot. So to witness the biology of attraction, watch “Why Sexy is Sexy” at
List three physical traits that you find attractive in a mate.
Explain how each preference is ‘gene deep.’ To help you to determine the biology of beauty, review “The Rules of Attraction in the Game of Love” at http://www.livescience.com/
and the scholarly journal entitled “Evolution of Human Mate Choice” at http://web.missouri.edu/~
Write one paragraph on each of your three physical traits and be sure to focus on the biological rather than the cultural factors.
Address how each of the three physical factors relate to sexual selection. Offer an example for each of your three physical features to demonstrate whether it helps with advertising or competing for a mate. Be creative, yet realistic.
Conclude with a paragraph explaining how these traits relate to mate selection and the passing of genetic material across multiple generation.
