Men whose ring fingers are longer than their index fingers are more attractive to women, a study suggests.
The longer the fourth finger compared to the second, known as the 2D:4D ratio, is proportional to how attractive their face is considered, research showed.
The ratio between the fingers is known to be linked to sex hormones, with a lower ratio – a longer ring finger than index finger – an indication of exposure to testosterone in the womb. This could in turn lead to more attractive and symmetrical features, it was claimed.
The ratios have previously been linked to fertility, sexuality and competitiveness.
