Stressed out men everywhere I have no use for you because if one Saudi has it right.
Men who lost stressed out under this tough economy before a little more meat on the bones.
And sex -- But Wendy Walsh says it's only natural that -- interpret for a second.
High stress men like large women is that what this -- this study -- Well they like women to carry a little more body fat if you believe the study.
And some people suggest is linked to our anthropological past maybe when those hunters were in -- time the fat men.
They wanted to have a nice -- woman to deposit there.
Baby juice in a hole that they -- prospering with -- I didn't.
Let's let's get off that subject just for one brief shining moment the actual description is -- -- Flash -- -- -- not all preferred by stressed out men define flex -- Well you know I also like to look it from sort of a Freudian psychoanalytic.
Style which means that nice full brass that are soft and warm and maybe like a pizza -- Tommy.
Are a wonderful place we're stressed out boy to cut -- and get a sort of sense of mommy.
So maybe that's what it's about.
Is this good news all bad news for flash -- women that they off more attractive to stressed out man do you want to -- it -- -- a woman any woman want a stressed out man.

Rising negatively -- I think you I think that's -- second best.
So and now and some are great as they say great nurturing daddy's their baby wearing soft -- throwing carp will driving doting dad to their very nurturing a -- -- Younger and the facts are hunters.
Put any store in this kind of study or is it just meant to create a -- and give as a very interesting segment which is it.
Well the sample group was not that large so it is hard to generalize but I will say this.
That the link to this in another study I recently read that says that when men are economically stressed they tend to prefer uncommitted Sachs is apparently committed sex is more expensive.
You get uncommitted sex for just the price of the drink apparently.
So be careful are.
-- yes when times are stressed whether economic or other kinds of stress we tend to revert back to our hunter gatherer instincts are reflexes.
And maybe that's what hunters they look for -- women's advocate -- healthy offspring.
So the -- drag his way back when would go back to the cave and demand some meat on the -- -- is that basically watches.
There was more often the other way she often had a club in her own encampment with all her sister's and girlfriend's in a lucky hunter brought back enough protein and maybe should let -- -- -- -- -- You know that was fun I'm not sure I believe it but it was certainly fun and Wendy Walsh don't just sex therapist thanks for joining has -- appreciate it.
