Researchers have discovered that women who bare 40% of their body are the most effective at attracting males. Female scientists studied women at a popular nightclub, and placed percentage values on how much skin they exposed. A bare arm counted for 10%, a leg 15% and so on. They found that women who bared 40% of their bodies were twice as effective at attracting men than women who covered up. Women who bared more flesh also fared much worse at attracting men, reports the Telegraph.

Researchers theorized that showing too much flesh may alienate men because it suggests infidelity. “Any more than 40 per cent and the signal changes from ‘allure’ to one indicating general availability and future infidelity," warned the lead researcher. (More sex stories.)
