    Saxton, Tamsin K.; Kohoutova, Dagmar; Roberts, S. Craig; Jones, Benedict C.; DeBruine, Lisa M.; Havlicek, Jan (Elsevier, 2010-12)
    Previous work has suggested that judgments of the attractiveness of some facial and vocal features change during adolescence. Here, over 70 Czech adolescents aged 12–14 made forced-choice attractiveness judgments on ...
  • Experimental evidence that women speak in a higher voice pitch to men they find attractive 

    Fraccaro, Paul J.; Jones, Benedict C.; Vukovic, Jovana; Smith, Finlay G.; Watkins, Christopher D.; Feinberg, David R.; Little, Anthony C.; DeBruine, Lisa M. (Akadémiai Kiadó, 2011-03)
    Although humans can raise and lower their voice pitch, it is not known whether such alterations can function to increase the likelihood of attracting preferred mates. Because men find higher-pitched women’s voices more ...

    Men with low testosterone (feminine men) invest in relationships and offspring more than men with high testosterone (masculine men). Women’s attraction to testosterone dependent traits (e.g. masculine face shape) is ...
  • Vocal and facial attractiveness judgments of children, adolescents and adults: the ontogeny of mate choice 

    Saxton, Tamsin K.; Caryl, Peter G.; Roberts, S. Craig (Wiley-Blackwell, 2006-12)
    Physical traits are thought to be used as indicators of mate quality, allowing individuals to select mates most likely to help them bear the fittest offspring. As the capacity for human sexual behaviour emerges at puberty, ...
  • The voice and face of woman: one ornament that signals quality? 

    Feinberg, David R.; Jones, Benedict C.; DeBruine, Lisa M.; Moore, Fhionna R.; Law Smith, Miriam J.; Cornwell, R. Elisabeth; Tiddeman, Bernard P.; Boothroyd, Lynda G.; Perrett, David I. (Elsevier, 2005-09)
    The attractiveness of women's faces, voices, bodies, and odors appear to be interrelated, suggesting that they reflect a common trait such as femininity. We invoked novel approaches to test the interrelationships between ...
