(Note: Testosterone differences between the rates are negligible, not high enough to account for differences in prostate cancer mortality. Black males have 2.5 to 4.9 times higher testosterone than white males (see Richard et al, 2014) and my article on the cause for the difference in prostate cancer mortality. The difference between testosterone between the races is not too high, as is commonly believed. Old studies with small ns get cited, when bigger, more robust analyses show the opposite, with a smaller difference. A difference that cannot be attributed to differences in prostate cancer.)

It is known that blacks have the highest levels of testosterone out of the major races of humanity. However, what’s not known is that black women have higher rates than white women. The same evolutionary factors that make it possible for black men to have high testosterone make it possible for women as well.

Most people don’t know this, but vitamin D isn’t really a vitamin; it’s a steroid hormone. Higher levels of testosterone occur due to increased exposure to the sun. Of course, the Middle East gets more sunlight than does Europe, so their levels of testosterone will be higher due to increased vitamin D, which in turn increases testosterone, causing more acts of aggression. Vitamin D supplementation could possibly (we know it does) raise testosterone levels. Of course, this is the case, seeing as vitamin D comes from the sun, and the more sun you get, the more Vitamin D you get, which increases testosterone levels. Those populations closer to the equator get more vitamin D from the sun’s rays, and thusly have higher levels of testosterone, on average.

Black women are more androgynous (personal observation, you can’t tell if they’re a man or woman from further away), and are more prone to get in to shouting matches/fights with other men or women. This is the high testosterone at work. Those with higher levels of test are more aggressive and have a more manly look as a result.

Moreover, the higher natural levels of testosterone found in  black women are directly responsible for the reason why black men have higher levels of testosterone. Since circulating hormones matter for a woman’s child invitro, it would stand to reason that since black babes are in a woman with higher natural levels of testosterone, that this would pass on to the babe. This is exactly what is observed. One study showed that black women had 50 percent higher testosterone than white women in early pregnancy!! Ross, the head researcher of the study, speculates that “this increased hormonal exposure in utero might reset the so-called “gonadostat feed-back loop,” which regulates testosterone secretion, to a higher level.” With what we know about hormones and babes in the womb, this is a viable hypothesis.

Finally, Satoshi Kanazawa noted in this study that black women were not seen as attractive as women from other races. He says women, on average, are more attractive than men: EXCEPT BLACK WOMEN. The data shows black women as not being statistically different from the average, and far less attractive than whites, Asians, and Native American women.

The cause is higher testosterone. Kanazawa says that the cause for this is due to the mean BMI of black women being 28.5 among black women and 26.1 among non-black women. Though he says that’s not the reason why black women are less physically attractive. Black women have lower levels of intellect net of BMI. Even the racial differences in intelligence don’t account for these differences. Black women are STILL less physically attractive, net of BMI and intelligence. Kanazawa says: “Net of intelligence, black men are significantly more physically attractive than nonblack men.”

Why is that? To be blunt, black women look more like men than women due to their higher levels of testosterone. The amount of crying all throughout the Internet after Kanazawa published his paper says it all: Racist!! Sexist!! Except, they couldn’t respond to the data so of course, as is usually the case with racial/sex differences, bury it, forget about it and proclaim the one who said these uncomfortable truths is a “racist”. Kanazawa ends up concluding that testosterone differences are the only cause for these differences. With blacks having the highest testosterone out of all the races, black women obviously have higher rates of testosterone than white women. Those women with higher levels of testosterone have more masculine features, therefore making them less attractive.

My personal answer as to why black women are less attractive is due to testosterone obviously. But, we as humans can subconsciously detect things such as this. Since high levels of testosterone are correlated with numerous variables that then become masculinzied in black women, this is one very huge reason in my opinion.

Lewis (2010) says in his study Who is the fairest of them all? Race, attractiveness and skin color sexual dimorphism:

Previous research has suggested that perceived attractiveness and personality are affected by the race such that White faces are more attractive but less masculine than Black faces. Such studies, however, have been based on very small stimulus sets. The current study investigated perceived attractiveness and personality for 600 Black, White and mixed-race faces. Many of the investigated personality traits were correlated with race when rated by White participants. Attractiveness specifically was greater for Black male faces than White male faces and among mixed-race faces. Blackness correlated with increased attractiveness. A reverse pattern was found for female faces with Whiteness being associated with attractiveness. The results are discussed in terms of the sexual dimorphism demonstrated in skin color.
This shows that black men are rated the most attractive for men while black women are rated least attractive. What is the main variable here? Clearly, testosterone. And from here (I can’t find the original source):
Though the author says that this makes black women MORE attractive, which we know is not the case. As shown from what I cited, testosterone correlates with physical attractiveness in men but not women.
Finally, since black women have higher levels of test than average, then we would assume there would be higher instances of certain variables. Like baldness (so many black women with no “edges” to borrow a word from them), PCOS (a common belief for the cause of PCOS is that insulin is linked to PCOS. As I showed the other day, blacks have a lower fiber consumption. This the correlated with high insulin levels. Black women with PCOS have increased risk for metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease in comparison to white women, which I will further explore in the future), distribution of body fat, deep voice, increased acne, and increased perspiration. These are all signs and symptoms of high testosterone in women, which not coincidentally, occur pretty frequently in black women.
So to wrap this all up, the stereotype (which is based on truth) that black women are loud and willing to fight at the drop of a hat is true. High levels of testosterone in black women explain how black men have higher levels than whites (because they are exposed to it invitro). Even when one brave (someone shouldn’t be called “brave” just for speaking the truth) man attempts to explain why these differences arise, ad hominem attacks occur and, as is usually the case, the data doesn’t get addressed. Kanazawa got fired from Bih Think after that due to the outrage! In today’s political climate, telling the truth gets you fired if enough people’s feelings are hurt. Well, one day these truths and differences between the races of man will not be able to hide any longer due to too much mounting evidence and no logical reason to not believe it. And all of the people demonized by the religion of the Left (Rushton, Kanazawa, Jensen, Taylor, Murray et al) will be rightfully exonerated from the baseless accusations of their wonderful work into understanding humanity.

    This is caused by the traction appoplecia due to the pulled back dairstyles many wear (to straighten kinky rootes along the hairline), along with braids, weaves, chemical straightening (all of which can be damaging to hair). And black men do not have higher rates of baldness than wite men, the opposite if anything.

      You’re right about that. I forgot to add that.

      A main reason for hair loss is dihydrotestosterone. Higher levels of testosterone lead to higher levels of dihydrotestosterone. But it doesn’t follow the testosterone patterns.

      Apparently whites and East Asians are more likely to go bald. I’ll look into the reasons.

      Jm8 noted that black women go bald due to traction alopecia. Constant pulling on hair makes it weak and prone to fall out. Moreover, white women have thinner hair (Northern European women, anyway) so that’s why. The prole Nords go bald early due to thin hair.

    Blacks have certain traits that are more feminine and more neotenous. They (as do Asians—or many E, Asian types. Interestingly, many East Asian types tend to have squarer jaws than other races which could be seen as masculine) tend to have less prominant brow ridges than caucasoid generally (who in turn have less prominant brow ridges than Australian Aborigines and Papuans). Many negroid types also tend to have less sloping and more bulbous/projecting foreheads (frontal skull eminences as Ashley Montagu phrases it) than Europeans. Thicker lips tend to me a more feminine traits (along with the tendency to have less facial and body hair). Mongoloid and some negroid types (incl. some in W. Africa) tend toward prominant cheekbones, which can be a feminizing trait.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negroid#Neoteny
    “Ashley Montagu lists “neotenous structural traits in which…Negroids [generally] differ from Caucasoids… flattish nose, flat root of the nose, narrower ears, narrower joints, frontal skull eminences, later closure of premaxillary sutures, less hairy, longer eyelashes, [and] cruciform pattern of second and third molars.”[25] He also suggested that in the extinct Negroid group termed the “Boskopoids”, pedomorphic traits proceeded further than in other Negroids.[25″

    There’s absolutely no credible evidence that black people have greater testosterone concentrations than white people. People like you rely on an old and terribly flawed study which has since been debunked. In fact, white people have higher levels of testosterone than black people. You don’t really need a scientific study to figure that out. Black people are relatively hairless, while white people can be nearly as hairy as monkeys.

Hence why HBD is a joke and why its adherents are jokers.

    In terms of attractiveness, that is in the eye of the beholder. It’s also governed by conditioning. There are many cultures where if a typical white, blonde, blue-eyed Miss America type showed up she would be considered an ugly and grotesque creature. You think that what western society considers a beautiful white woman would be considered beautiful if she walked into an African village that is unaccustomed to white people? Hell no, she instantly would be the ugliest human being they have ever seen.

      After adjustment for age, black men have a modestly but significantly 2.5 to 4.9% higher free testosterone level than white men.

      Of course things like MAOA-L and the like play a role. See Beaver et al 2013. They say that abuse as a kid activates the MAOA-L alleles, and blacks do abuse their kids at a high rate. Blacks have the 2 and 3 repeat alleles, 5 percent for the 2 repeat compared to .01 percent of whites and 52 percent for the 3 repeat with 37 percent of whites having that.

      Prostate cancer is twice as likely in black men compared to white men. Testosterone doesn’t explain all of the variance, so other genetic and environmental factors take care of the rest. But the higher levels of testosterone do play pretty big part in it.

      Blacks do not have lower levels of testosterone than Whites. In fact, as I showed in my article, blacks are exposed to higher levels of testosterone in the womb.

      We also know, according to Dabbs at al, men who commit more crimes of violence and sex have higher levels of testosterone.

    “I beg to differ. This is why SSA and MENA peoples rape white women, right? Lighter phenotypes are clearly more attractive, on average.”

    So if somebody rapes a woman that means they find her attractive? Black African men rape a great many more African women. In fact the rapes of white women by Africans are rare in the extreme. And what about white men raping African women, which has happened historically and continues today? In fact white men have engaged in systemic, wholesale rapes of black women in Africa. Does that mean that white men find African women more attractive than white women?

    “What Salger has shown shows that, on average, black women are less attractive than other women.”

    I wouldn’t expect anything less in the West. I can assure you, as an African, that Africans do not find white people more attractive, even today with all the Hollywood movies and western culture they have been exposed to. In the old days they would have found white people absolutely revolting. Listen very carefully: IT’S ALL DUE TO CONDITIONING. If you were raised by gorillas you would be conditioned into their idea of beauty. That means that you would be attracted to a gorilla female while probably recoiling from a human female.

    “Black women have higher rates of testosterone in their second trimesters, which is another cause for black men having high levels of test: they’re exposed to it prenatally.”

    Again, bullshit. No comprehensive, large sample size study supports the notion that black people (male or female) have higher testosterone concentrations than white people. In fact Jm8’s links completely debunk this entire line of argument. If anything, testosterone concentrations are lower in blacks vis a vis whites. Again, whites are hairy, blacks are not. Excessive body hair doesn’t happen in a vacuum, it’s caused by high testosterone levels.

    And the Kanazawa study you cited says black men are the most attractive. Last I checked, black men are not a lighter phenotype.

    Again, conditioning. An idea of beauty changes over time based on conditioning. A pallid, thin lipped, flat assed woman is no longer the ideal of beauty in the United States. Exotic features, full lips, naturally tanned skin and a round ass are what’s desired. In fact women lacking these features will burn under the sun and undergo dangerous surgical procedures to acquire them. There are actually white women who want to have half-black kids because they consider them more beautiful than pure white kids.

    “You’re too into this ‘blank slate’ notion. It’s not ‘conditioning’. Your biology would tell you to mate with that damn human, no matter if you’re raised with apes or not.”

    There have been some cases of feral kids. That is, kids raised by animals. Human kids have been raised by dogs and wolves. Those kids assimilated the behavior, mannerisms and lifestyle of those animals. It safe to say that they found mating with those animals perfectly natural, whereas if a human came near them, they would run away. But since my premise envisaged being raised by gorillas, let’s focus on the boy raised by monkeys in Uganda:

    http://www.newvision.co.ug/new_vision/news/1314386/raised-monkeys-strugging-human

    There is no way this boy, had he reached sexual maturity, would be sexually attracted to a human. He would want to mate with monkey females.

    “According to Richard et al’s 2014 meta-analysis, blacks have, on average, 2.5 to 4.9 percent higher testosterone than Whites.”

    Sex steroid hormone levels can be altered dramatically with changes to diet and lifestyle. That’s hardly genetic. Unless you’ve tested some black Africans, who have a radically different diet and lifestyle (less meat, more organic, less sedentary) you have absolutely no standing to attribute the differences to genetics. And it’s cute how you picked a study that focused on sex steroids. Weren’t we talking about androgenic testosterone?

      First, you haven’t presented any credible data.

      Is Peter Frost good enough?

      Testosterone levels are higher in black boys than in white boys as early as the prepubertal age class (5-9 yrs) (Abdelrahaman et al., 2005). Black males seem to reach maximum t levels during adolescence and early adulthood (Ross et al., 1986; Winters et al., 2001). The black-white difference then shrinks after 24 years of age and is gone by the early 30s (Gapstur et al., 2002). It actually seems to reverse in later years (Nyborg, 1994, p. 111-113).

      Broadly speaking, lifetime exposure to testosterone correlates with the incidence of prostate cancer and the highest incidences in the world are among African American men (Brawley and Kramer, 1996). Other populations of black African descent (i.e., West Indians and sub-Saharan Africans) exhibit lower incidences, but these have been shown to reflect underreporting and are probably just as high (Glover et al., 1998; Ogunbiyi and Shittu, 1999; Osegbe, 1997). It should be noted that the human body’s exposure to testosterone depends not only on blood serum levels but also on how well this hormone interacts with androgen receptors, which seem to be more numerous and more receptive in black subjects (Kittles et al., 2001).

      And on Africans:

      Several studies have found lower testosterone levels in African populations than in North Americans. This difference might be partly due to the effects of malnutrition or infectious diseases, notably among the Zimbabwean subjects studied by Lukas et al. (2004). The main reason, however, is that these studies used largely middle-aged or even elderly subjects. Lukas et al. (2004) report a mean age of 42.18 (S.D. = 13.75). Their scatter plot (Fig. 2) suggests a logarithmic decline in t values with age, but they had too few subjects below 25 for any meaningful analysis of that age group. The same criticism applies to a study by Campbell et al. (2003) of t levels in Ariaal pastoralists from northern Kenya. Those subjects had a mean age of 46.8 (S.D. = 14.3 years).

      Testosterone and Human Variation

      Second, if lighter phenotypes are considered more attractive why do actual studies confirm that mixed-race people (black/white mix) are most attractive?

      They probably have more average faces, as average faces are considered more attractive. I found the paper, I’ll read it and we can discuss it in a few days.

      Again, conditioning. An idea of beauty changes over time based on conditioning.

      Oh of course! For instance, 100 years ago in America, a more buxom figure was found to be attractive. Now, a thinner figure is more attractive. Things change, you’re right about that.

      On facial attractiveness:

      While the majority of the work described above has been carried out in North America, Britain and Australia, averageness has also been found to be attractive across different cultures. For example, facial averageness is also found attractive in Japanese participants [69] and in African hunter–gatherers [67].

      Facial attractiveness: evolutionary based research

      In fact women lacking these features will burn under the sun and undergo dangerous surgical procedures to acquire them. There are actually white women who want to have half-black kids because they consider them more beautiful than pure white kids.

      Correct, but does that hold for the whole population? I think not.

      There is no way this boy, had he reached sexual maturity, would be sexually attracted to a human. He would want to mate with monkey females.

      Thanks for the story. Do you have any idea if he speaks about his experiences or does he not remember them?

      So would you say that, up to a certain point, one can be raised as if he were a literal animal? Like, the article said that he was thought to be in the wild for three years beginning at the age for 3, so do you think there is a cutoff point for when children wouldn’t become feral if left in the wild? Say, five-years-old?

      Sex steroid hormone levels can be altered dramatically with changes to diet and lifestyle. That’s hardly genetic.

      Of course, however, with what we know physiologically about blacks, we know they do have slightly higher levels of test (higher prostate cancer rates, lower fat-free body, squarer jaw, etc).

      Unless you’ve tested some black Africans, who have a radically different diet and lifestyle (less meat, more organic, less sedentary) you have absolutely no standing to attribute the differences to genetics.

    “Contrary to the postulated racial difference, testosterone concentrations did not differ notably between black and white men. However, blacks had higher estradiol levels. Mexican-Americans had higher testosterone than whites but similar estradiol and SHBG concentrations. Given these findings, it may be equally if not more important to investigate estradiol as testosterone in relation to diseases with racial disparity.”

    It’s long been believed that black people have more testosterone than white’s but the opposite is true. Apparently Mexican men have the most testosterone, then white and black men make around the same level with black men making more estrogen. This makes sense in the fact that black men and women tend to have less body hair.

    “Elevated levels of estrogen adversely affect the development of male secondary sexual characteristics, often halting hair growth”

    With black women, they make more estrogen and testosterone than white women comparatively, so they make more male and female hormones in general to where it balances out. Which makes sense with their libido being higher and more muscular frame while with the estrogen making of the widening of their hips and fat in breast and the butt. The increased estrogen production also accounts for the increased risk in black women to have develop fibroids as well as why many have exaggerated sexual features. Ex: Full lips, big eyes, big breast, wide hips, large butts. They also tend to begin their period at earlier ages. Then with the increased testosterone making their frame larger and their sexual libido greater.

    “It is known that before menopause, African-American women have a higher breast cancer risk than whites, as well as higher estrogen levels,” Setiawan says. “It would be interesting to find out why their elevated rates do not persist after menopause, despite having comparatively higher estrogen levels.”

    Richard et al 2014 stated, “we did not observe statistically significant differences in total testosterone concentrations between black and white men”. The discussion section also addresses that large genetic diversity (being more heterogenous) accounts for the differences in “free testosterone levels”considering ” the magnitude of the racial difference was very heterogeneous between the studies”. If you couldn’t comprehend, essentially the article is stating, there is no viable difference in the levels of testosterone and the larger genetic differences in the black subjects verses the white subjects is the reason for the apparent difference in free testosterone levels.

      Again, I know how to comprehend this article, because I read papers like this evry day for my job. See the discussion:

      In the multivariable-adjusted models, total testosterone was also significantly higher in black than white men, but the magnitude of the racial difference was very heterogeneous between the studies, as were the factors adjusted for (see Tables 1 and ​and2).2). To evaluate how much of the difference in results was because of a different subset of studies in the meta-analyses of the unadjusted, age-adjusted and multivariable-adjusted results, we performed sensitivity analyses including only those studies that each provided all three estimates. The results in this subset of studies were similar to those overall; however, the differences between black and white men were statistically significant, irrespective of the level of adjustment. This may be because of the smaller heterogeneity in this sample.

      And free test varied in men in all models.

    We don’t agree, black women across the board often have lower testosterone proportionate to white women. I’m literally saying black women make more estrogen and testosterone then white and Asian women, but the ratio of estrogen to testosterone shows that the feminization of black women would be the same or higher then other women. Also studies show that whites commit more crimes and are arrested less then black people, especially when it comes to drugs, because the are deemed less “criminal” , also more impoverished groups have more criminal activity throughout history. The systematic structures of racism and oppression in this country support a system of white supremacy that create divisions of wealth based on a spectrum of whitest to blackest.

      How did I know that something like this would pop up.

      Whites do commit more crimes, only because there are 5 whites for every one black. But adjusted for population percentage, blacks commit way more crime.

      Is it like this today? Can anyone—regardless of skin color—attain the same amount of wealth if they are intelligent and hard working?

      The crime of Irish and Italian immigrants when they first arrived in the country was high because many lived well below the poverty line.

      How is it today? They are assimilated. Look at Italian and Irish crime then compare it to black crime.

      I don’t discount that that has a lot to do with it. Does that account for crime today though?

      No, family wealth is a huge booster in life. I can double my net worth in a couple of years all while being lazy and dumb just because I don’t need banks and I know the right people. You can be a smart and hardworking guy, it’s gonna be a lot more difficult for you to get at my level. True self made men are the exception, not the norm.

      Lol, they’re assimilated, they’re not anymore Italian and Irish. At the same time, a black person could be rich smart and at the highest level of propriety, they would still sit at the back of the bus and could never pass for white as successful immigrants did.

      US society has always refused the assimilation of blacks, rejecting inter-marriage, race mixing and neighborhood integration.

      Most African countries are safe if you control for the level of law enforcement.

    There are a few issues with your hormonal theories:

    1- The heritability of testosterone is low

    “Age-adjusted heritability estimates were 0.19, 0.40, 0.40, 0.30, and 0.41 for cFT, TT, E1, E2, and SHBG, respectively. Adjustment for covariates did not substantially attenuate these estimates; SHBG-adjusted TT results were similar to those obtained for cFT. Genetic correlation coefficients (ρG) indicated substantial genetic association between TT and cFT (ρG=0.68), between TT and SHBG (pG = 0.87), between E1 and E2 (ρG = 0.46), and between TT and E2 (ρG = 0.48).”

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3825765/

    2-Hormonal levels are very unstable even within a day. They are influenced by activity, nutrition, age a many other variables. If the black subjects were more likely to come to the test on foot and the white ones by car, it’s enough to cause a slight difference. And that’s why it’s so difficult and even pointless to try to identify racial differences. The wikipedia article is rather good imo.

      Racial differences in testosterone are trivial I’ve now realized. Though small differences exist.

      Testosterone raises when you see a woman, in group situations, etc. Serum testosterone levels should be taken in the morning upon waking while fasting a few hours before to get a consistent result.

    Same low heritability for leptin.

    “RESULTS: Women had higher mean leptin levels (16.8±9.5 ng/ml), and more overall variability in leptin levels than men (6.4±3.5 ng/ml; P<0.0001). Leptin levels correlated highly with BMI in men and women. Among women, the MZ and DZ pairwise correlations for leptin were 0.41 (P=0.009) and 0.07 (P=0.32), respectively. Among men the MZ and DZ pairwise correlations for leptin were 0.47 (P=0.006) and 0.23 (P=0.10). Univariate twin analysis indicated that, among women, 34% and, among men, 45% of the variance in leptin can be attributed to additive genetic effects, and the remainder to unique environmental effects. Significant non-additive genetic or shared familial effects could not be demonstrated. A bivariate twin analysis of leptin and BMI indicated that the correlation between additive genetic effects on leptin and BMI was 0.79 (95% CI 0.68-0.86) in women, and 0.68 (0.51-0.80) in men. The correlation between environmental effects on leptin and BMI was 0.77 (95% CI 0.66-0.85) in women, and 0.48 (0.26-0.66) in men.”

      I am aware that leptin is very strongly mediated by the environment. Of course there are a lot of effects in the environment that lead to higher rates of leptin. Body fat gains precede leptin increases in puberty.

    So sad to read this . We already know that the black man are physically more attractive then any man walking on this earth .

Every time I look at TV read a ad all the “other woman” are trying to add a Ass or lips remove a rib to make a better waist line change there face to get the high cheek bone .The African American culture has such a high impact on the USA let alone the world you come up with this bull. Have you ever thought to say that African, Blacks or what ever you decided to call us this week are the higher human race and others are weaker.

    In ever race in the Indian culture ,Asian culture, and even in African American culture and so on they put dark people down but I’m am sure they are the stronger of the two. And please don’t let us forget how during the slave period you breed the African American but when you did this you forced them to have sex with there mothers and fathers so o am sure that had a pro found affect on them as well.. There no mystery hear just a point of view. I’ve done some world traveling a meet and saw a lot of unattractive people of all people. But none of them had a history as the black people do hear in the USA. People are so quick to judge because of racism before you can appreciate the person , but why would I expect more from you people other then to find another way to brain wash the rest of the world. More then anything I feel sorry for you.

    I find this article very interesting, I am currently doing a report on black woman self- esteem impacted by the media in Western Culture. I was wondering that isn’t it very strange that black woman tend to have much more curvier bodies but still found that the testosterone adds masculinity. How do those two variable correlate, when in our society today we long for an hourglass shape. Also may I ask do you feel that skin colour has anything to do with this, does having lighter skin make you more attractive?

      Thanks. Testosterone isn’t too much higher in black women than in white women.

      If you’re talking about longing for an hour glass-shaped woman you need to read this article Why Are Men Attracted to Low Waist-to-hip Ratios?

      The two correlate in that black men find obese women more attractive, which, to some researchers means they are protecting black women against body pathology.

      Freedman et al (2004) observed that, as expected, black men were more likely to choose heavier figures as an ideal body for women than white men. Also expected was that both groups would choose figures with a low waist to hip ratio, but black men would choose a lower waist to hip ratio as ideal. They also show weight to be a more important cue than waist to hip ratio in mate selection as well as supporting the theory that black men’s preferences may serve as a protective factor against eating and body image pathology in black women.

      Lighter skinned women are seen as more attractive whereas black men are seen as more attractive, as Kanazawa says, due to higher levels of testosterone. Mesomorphic men are seen as more attractive and black men are more likely to be mesomorphic.

      Lighter skin in women is seen as attractive in women, but not really in men according to what I’ve read.

      I’ll link more studies for you later.
