Study Finds That Dogs Obey Women More And Here's Why

  Study Finds That Dogs Obey Women More And Here's Why Ever wonder why all the princesses in fairy tales have such a great rapport with animals? A 2017 study that is resurfacing online has concluded that, although we can't actually speak to our furry friends like they do in Disney flicks, in real life, women are actually more fluent in "dog" than men. And as a result, dogs are often more obedient to women than their male counterparts.

  Men and women with this trait considered sexier overall, says study © PeopleImages/Getty Images If you've ever felt an attraction to someone whom you've only heard and never actually seen, it may be because our senses are trained to pick up a potential mate's genetic health and reproductive fitness, which is reflected in the symmetry of one's body via the sound of his or her voice.

In a study published in the Journal of Nonverbal Behavior, participants listened to previously recorded voices and rated their levels of attractiveness according to nine traits, including approachability, intelligence, sexiness and warmth.

The group concluded that men whose voices ranked as most approachable, intelligent, sexy and warm — and women whose voices were deemed most approachable, sexy and as most likely to get dates — were the most attractive overall.

Organs from drug overdoses could help transplant shortage

  Organs from drug overdoses could help transplant shortage <p>Fatal ODs are increasing organ donations, and research says people who receive those transplants generally fare as well as patients given organs from more traditional donors.</p>Researchers from Johns Hopkins University report those transplants have jumped nearly 24-fold since 2000, to 3,533 transplants in 2016.

The voices rated as most attractive were from those whose bodies were the most symmetrical. But a sexy voice and sexy body has nothing to do with the attractiveness of one's face, at least according to one of the lead researchers.

So this means a couple of things: those cruelly tagged "butter faces" must sound super-sexy over the phone, and James Earl Jones must have one crazily symmetric body. Who knew?

But what are the specific qualities of an attractive voice? When researchers used machines to try and objectively quantify the characteristics of a "sexy voice," the results were inconclusive. Just like our sense of smell, apparently our perception of sound is just another way that our sneaky genes are inherently playing matchmaker for us.

But according to a University of Texas–Austin study, finding your inner peace may help chase away feelings of body dissatisfaction. In the study, women who participated in guided self-compassion meditation for about 20 minutes daily for three weeks reported an increased appreciation for their bodies. How?
