A STUDY in Poland has concluded that people with slightly longer legs are more attractive to the opposite sex.
The research shows that both men and woman preferred a picture of a person whose legs had been manipulated to be five per cent longer than they actually were.
However, very long legs (stretched 15 per cent) were less of a turn-on than the original pair. A total of 218 volunteers of both sexes took part in the study.
“Long legs signal health”, said Dr Boguslaw Pawlowski, who led the study, adding that he did not think that Poles would be unusual in preferring longer limbs.
