Recent studies from the University Of Sussex have scientific proof why women shower talented rockstars in a hailstorm of their underwear. We’ve always known it, but it’s good to get nerdy validation: women find skilled musicians more attractive.

The study was based on 1,500 women who were played two pieces of music, one more complex than the other. They were then questioned which composer of the pieces they would deem more attractive. The results in favour of the more complex piece were definitive only when the risk of conception was at its highest.

Hmmm, maybe something to bear in mind, fellas? I’m off to change my profile picture to subtly include that old guitar in the background.
