According to new research, men with deep voices are way more likely to cheat and are less committed to relationships.
This is according to findings from the Southwest University Of Chongqing, China, after they conducted experiments with 116 men and 145 women.
The participants were averagely 20 years old. They had the pitch of their voices measured and were then asked questions about their attitudes toward monogamy and commitment.“Our findings demonstrated that masculine men are more likely to engage in infidelity and commit less to their romantic relationships compared with feminine men”, researchers said.
The results, which were published in the Personality and Individual Differences journal, did not apply to women, but only men with deep voices.
According to researchers, increased testosterone may be a factor, with more women finding men with deep voices more attractive.

They wrote, “Testosterone and the characteristics dependent on testosterone can be reliable indicators of quality-dependent conditions or behaviours…therefore, men with higher testosterone levels, and hence lower voices, may have more infidelity behaviours or less commitment to their romantic relationship.
Furthermore, from the point olf view of evolutionary psychology, men with masculine voices may enhance their status among other men or their attractiveness to women… thereby increasing their chances of obtaining more or higher-quality partners.”
