Taller men are deemed more sexually attractive and are more likely to find a mate.

The verdict that size matters is based on a study of 10,000 people born in the UK in a single week in March 1958.

Their health and social development has been followed for the National Child Development Study.

Dr Nettle’s team analysed data from the study in the year 2000 when the men and women were aged 42.

He found the taller the men were, the less likely they were to be single or childless. More here.
