It's a tale as old as time: a man wants a shallow, beautiful, "easy" woman instead of a nice, respectful woman with brains. Right?

It’s a tale as old as time: a man wants a shallow, beautiful, ”easy” woman instead of a nice, respectful woman with brains. Right? That’s what I thought. But according to a new study conducted right here at The Kinsey Institute, this tale is sometimes just a stereotype.

Hey Baby, Nice…Brain.

The study says that some men actually do get aroused by women with brains. While physical attractiveness is also important for men, intelligence has been described as a turn-on and an attractive quality when trying to find a partner.

Good news for smart girls everywhere! And even more reason to stay in school.

Hopefully this will help intelligent girls to stop hiding behind their bodies and use their brains. This isn’t to say, however, that ALL men think this way.

The Vancouver Sun has issued an article about the study, or you can check out the press release.
