Much of the work on the importance of facial attractiveness judgments in human sexual behavior has focused on womenís preferences for characteristics in menís faces that are thought to be associated with health, personality, and/or status. However, a large body of evidence now suggests that preferences for characteristics in womenís faces influence menís mate preferences. This chapter will review some of this research, focusing on (1) the role of facial cues associated with health and fertility in menís judgments of womenís facial attractiveness and (2) some recent examples of systematic variation in the strength of menís preferences for these cues. doi: 10.1007/978-1-4939-0314-6_4
