Contrary To Popular Belief, Nice Guys Have More Sex Than Bad Boys

It's science!

Want to have more sex? Try a little altruism. 

Contrary to popular belief, most research shows that women and men are more attracted to nice people than selfish folks. The Psych2Go video above highlights just a few studies to that point.

In one study out of the University of Guelph and Nipissing University, researchers interviewed roughly 800 people, asking them about their sexual history and their propensity toward altruism, be it charity work, random acts of kindness or donating blood.

Even after controlling for age and personality, the do-gooders were found to have greater success at dating and sex than their selfish counterparts.

Watch the video above for more on the link between altruism and gettin’ some action.
