Sounds like a fun project. 😉. But seriously, I had a guy in his very early 30s tell me one time about how much mediocre and even bad sex he'd had with young women who were 20 or so. I think he was talking about when he was younger because he's partnered now, but it still doesn't fit the cultural narrative of hot young women being the ultimate sex jackpot. I think that for at least some men, they like the idea of being with someone they can control and can be less vulnerable with (Epstein, et al), but that still doesn't really make for better sex.

It's kind of an odd thing in a way that men seem to find the waist to hip ratio of women in their teens the most attractive, but women are more fertile in their mid to late 20s. How does that work from an evolutionary perspective, or is it simply cultural?
