[h1]Men prefer money over beauty[/h1]
Some men may be hardwired to favour money over the sight of a pretty face, Duke University neuroscientists have demonstrated.

Whenasked to pay to view photographs of attractive women, men mentallyweigh the experience against cost - and some spend more for oglingrights than others.

What triggers the decision is a separate pleasure centre in the brain that gauges the relative value of a given experience.

Forsome, money gets this brain region revving. For others, it is activatedby a pleasant experience such as gazing moonily at women.

"Forsomebody who really doesn’t want to give up their money, the economicregion may be putting a high value on the money and less on theexperience or goods they get from it," said Scott Huettel, director ofDuke's Center for Neuroeconomic Studies and one of the researchers.

Im going to read the study latter but it doesn't seem very logical to me.

I mean with the internet being the way it is today, the only things you need to pay for are food, and certain utilities.

If you can see beautiful women for free why would you pay. Why would you pay the premium for a porn site when the preview shows you all you need to see for free.

Than the risk factored in that you don't know if these women will actually be beautiful that you pay to look at, it all just doesn't make sense.

Had they had researched this 30 years ago it would probably be the complete opposite.

Plus: Duke Sucks

meh, i wouldn't say it's flat-out "money over females" kinda deal.

if you ask the same dudes to pay up for sex, i'm sure the responses would be a bit different. no one's gonna PAY to look at photos of women, hell that #%!+ is free online.

i agree.

"When asked to pay to view photographs of attractive women..." This is what they based their test on to conclude "Men prefer money over beauty"?

Exactly, the study has to be flawed.
Men pay for sex all the time. The inverse could just as easily be "proven"
