The Red Bias

My girlfriend has always told me that I look best in red or black shirts.

Are there any studies on sexual / romantic attraction and clothing color?

0Jack11yAll I've seen is the study whose summary is linked to in the post suggesting red makes women more attractive to men.
Attention Lurkers: Please say hi

Lurker for about a year. Made my only previous comment to this one a few months ago.

I almost never feel I have anything to contribute here. Even when I do, someone else has already expressed my thoughts in a comment more clear and thorough than anything I would have written. But this is a good thing!

Babies and Bunnies: A Caution About Evo-Psych

My "cuteness sense" responds that way. I find young children (2 - 4 years old) much cuter than newborns. I don't think I'm alone in this.

5mattnewport12yYoung animals don't generally reach optimal cuteness until some time after birth. Given the slower rate at which human young mature relative to other animals your cuteness sense for humans is not necessarily inconsistent with the normal response to animals. It seems to me that the pictures used for comparison in the OP use a bunny at a relatively later stage of development than the human infant. Newborn puppies, kittens and rabbits [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Rabbit_1hr_old_gnangarra.jpg] are peculiar little blind wriggling things and are less cute than slightly older young animals. Newborn rabbits appear to be hairless.
