Studies Show That Taller Men Have More Sex

tall menAs many studies by independent researchers have shown, height plays a vital factor in how much sex a man has. But it is not just sex that height effects. Studies have also shown that tall men are more likely to get elected to office and actually even be happier than their shorter counterparts.

Interestingly enough, many of the reasons for the way that women think of men in terms of the potential for sex are linked to psychological and evolutionary factors that have been built over hundreds of thousands of years. Let’s take a look at a few of the reasons why taller men seem to have more sex:


Psychologically speaking, women are much more likely to be attracted to a taller man than a shorter one. This is mostly due to the fact that a woman will usually perceive a taller man to be stronger and better able to protect them. While this may seem ridiculous in a lot of ways, this way of thinking is a byproduct of millions of years of evolution where protection was the most important desire of a woman.

Higher Self-Esteem

Taller men also tend to have more self-confidence and higher self-esteem than shorter men, which has long been noted as a positive factor in the way women perceive men. A lot of short men with high self-esteem may have their confidence misconstrued as arrogance, which is also known as having a ‘Napoleon complex’.

More Fit

While this not always true, tall men tend to have a more fit body construction than that of short men. As would be expected, women are more likely to think about a fit man in terms of a potential mate than they are to think of a short and stubby man in the same way. In general, the taller a guy is the more weight he can put on before being considered overweight or obese.

The Final Word

At the end of the day, there is no doubt that height plays a role in the way a woman perceives a man. While this may be unfortunate for short men, not all hope is lost. Taller men may have the advantage, but shorter men can certainly make up for it with a little extra effort. Dressing well, having high self-esteem, and staying in shape are all ways that a shorter man can compete with these taller men for the sexual interest of women.
