Men are more attracted to women’s teeth than their hair

Study says good teeth turn men on the most.

A recent study conducted by online dating site Match.com found that a woman’s teeth are the most important dating factor for men.

According to USA Today, teeth rank in the top spot in a list of the top ten things men judge women on. After teeth, good grammar is the second-most important aspect of looks, followed by good hair. 

The findings are a result of a national survey of over 5,000 single adults ages 21 and up.

And it’s not just men who find a killer smile important. 71 percent of women also rate teeth as the biggest turn-on, followed by good grammar as the No. 2 most important thing (same as men).

So it appears that men and women agree on something, at least!

Tell us: What do you think of these findings, do you think teeth are that important?

If a woman has a great body, great eyes, great hair - would a man still be turned off if she has yellow teeth?  I don't  think so.  Besides, she could  go to Walmart & get some White Strips for that...

Obvious from the comments how FAR OFF this article is from the truth.  T/A and body is the first thing guys look at, and for a lot of women, it's the wallet -- i.e., the clothes, the shoes, the car, etc.  They don't like to admit it, but any half-way decent guy in a sharp suit getting out of a $100K or more car will turn most women's heads -- put the same guy in a pair of dirty jeans getting off a bus, and he won't get a second look. 

 

It's just biology -- sex is a priority for men; security is a priority for women.

While good teeth are a plus, I find the over-whitened, over-exposed teeth as shown in the illustration in this article a turnoff. I have seen people who have bleached their teeth to the point they look like chalk. Not good.

Give me a break.

As the owner of a pair of very full double Ds since I was about 14 (a long time now), I know it was never my teeth that men found interesting. This article must have been funded by the American Dental Association!

    The 10 beauty products every model has in her medicine cabinet

    Models may be pros at walking with authority, wearing clothes well, and looking good doing practically anything—but if there is one thing that exceeds their fashion prowess, it’s their command of the world’s best beauty products. Backstage each season and on set throughout the year, they road test a mind-boggling assortment of mascaras, foundations, hairsprays, and more. Between having their hair teased within an inch of its life, their makeup applied and reapplied a dozen times in a day, and their skin pushed to its absolute limits, it’s safe to say they’ve figured out which are the most gentle, effective, and transformative formulas on the market. From the world’s sexiest (and most healing) lip balm to the original French pharmacy face cream, here are ten beauty products you can find in almost every model’s medicine cabinet.
