Manly Thor's Day seconds

Poor Jesse Bering, what's a metrosexual-emo-nice guy going to do when science comes up with a politically incorrect result?
Ask a straight man, “How do you like your women?” and it’s unlikely he’ll answer, “Dumb and sleepy.” But according to new findings, these characteristics—and any other traits suggesting that the lady isn’t particularly alert—are precisely what the human male has evolved to look for in a one-night-stand.
Bering calls that an "inflammatory hypothesis" and further whines that the language used by researchers doesn't help. The language that troubles him is a suggestion by the researchers that men respond to signs that a woman is sexually exploitable.

But here is an impolite question: Have you ever watched a woman's face when she was very highly aroused? Say the last minutes before she comes? Would you describe the expression on her face in those moments as "intelligent"? Me neither.

And don't take just my word for it. Here is what happens to women's brains when they watch porn:
Their results showed that far less blood was sent to the primary visual cortex, while the women were watching the most explicit porn. The same thing happens in the brain when a human conducts a non-visual task—like memorizing a list of words—while being shown some sort of visual "distractor" stimuli. Interestingly, when watching normal, non-smut films, extra blood is sent to the visual cortex. 
Sexual arousal makes women less, how to put this in a way that won't trouble Jesse Bering, shall we say, "less focused on processing data".

Here is an inflammatory line of thought for you. A while ago Christopher Hitchens argued that men are funnier than women because they have a greater incentive to make women laugh than men.
"I won't try and do it for you on camera but there is an attitude: the head thrown back and the mouth wide open and the horseshoe of lovely teeth and tongue on display and so forth. That is, well, it's a bit of a surrender. Ahh, it's worth it for it's own sake and it's a simulacrum of something even more worth it."
(It starts at 4:16 in this video if you want to check for yourself.)

Lots of people got heated up about Hitchens saying men are funnier than women but notice that he also implicitly said that men seek to have women surrender during sex. For the simple reason that that is what happens when sex is good for both of you. It doesn't have to be that way but that is the way the vast majority of men and women want to do it.

The reason dominatrices get paid so well as being dominant is the thing women like doing least in bed. They prefer to surrender. I know, today's independent women are different and all the rest of that jazz but it isn't true.

Anyway, if you want to attract a man, one surefire way to do it is to signal sexual arousal by acting a little dumb and sleepy. Like everything else in sex, it can be done too obviously, and anyone who went to high school can remember the girls who did it too obviously. But even guys who like sharp, witty Rosalind Russell types still ultimately hope to make these women surrender and adopt an "attitude" with the head thrown back and the mouth wide open and the horseshoe of lovely teeth and tongue on display and so forth".

Especially the "so forth".
