New research shows that the mere presence of attractive women can drive straight guys to aggressive and dangerous extremes.
They show that just looking at an attractive woman makes them more likely to indulge in "physical risk-taking" which ends in embarrassing failure or even injury.
The change in behaviour is triggered by a surge in the male hormone testosterone which makes men "throw caution to the wind", according to psychologists at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia.
In cave-man times, these displays would have been a crucial component of "competitive mating strategy" but in the modern world...
Instances of physical risk-taking that contribute to men's early mortality, such as dangerous driving and physical aggression, might also be influenced by increases in testosterone brought about by the presence of attractive women.
So, hot women are literally killing us. What? You thought our indefensible behavior was OUR fault? Hah!
