Single Men Stink More Than Men In A Relationship, Research Finds

stink men, single men

Frontiers in Psychology found that single men smell noticeably worse than those who have partners, because they tend to produce more testosterone that are associated with stronger smelling body odor.

82 heterosexual women were enlisted by the researchers to sniff the sweaty armpits of a group of coupled and uncoupled men between 18-35 years old, by that the uncoupled men turn to be consistently rated having a high body odor.

The results showed that when it comes to smelliness, women rated single men 3.5 on average out of 6, while the counterpart rated lower.

Females also found out that bachelors appeared to be more masculine than those in commitment.

Consistent with the study, single men’s body odor smell stronger than in a men in a relationship and single men’s faces were rated as more masculine than partnered men’s faces.

The results have nothing to do with single men having poor hygiene or not, instead the study only intend to show that single men produce more testosterone than its counterpart, and the levels of the male hormone are associated with its body odor.
