Spouses have similar DNA

A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science found that among 825 white American couples the genetic material were more alike than to strangers.

That’s somewhat creepy. Come on, people. Import some spice into your love lives.

Women can make their voices sexier
A 2014 study done by the Albright University found that women were perceived to more attractive when they lowered their voices and spoke with a breathy tone.

Men on the other hand were found to be more obnoxious when they tried to be sexier.
