8 Reasons Men With Sisters Are Hotter


A recent study may have shown that boy rats with sisters are less sexy to women than boy rats who grow up with brothers, but for boy humans, the opposite is true.

Boys with sisters make the best spouses of all.

The study, which was published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, finds that male rats who grow up in female-centered homes are less attractive to female rats when it comes time to mate.

Who knew?

But rats aside, having a sister makes a man a much better, much more attuned spouse than a man who grew up around only boys or as an only child. And the reasons should be obvious.

Here are a few:

  1. They speak our language: We ladies are a complicated bunch and men who didn't grow up with females aren't aware of the subtlety with which we tell them they're wrong. Men with sisters are more attune, thus learn how to nip problems in the bud.
  2. They put the toilet seat down: Not much to explain on this, but seriously, as a mom to a boy, if there is one lesson I hope he gets loud and clear, it's this: Put the friggin' seat down. There is no excuse for anything other than compliance on this one.
  3. They pee in the toilet: I have lived with two men. One cleaned up any splatter. The other didn't. Any guesses as to which one had sisters?
  4. Better communication: Men with sisters know how to talk to women. They grew up doing it. They ask us how our days were and about our "feelings." Men with brothers just kind of grunt and talk about Monster Garage.
  5. Comfort with "female" things: Yes, boys. We use tampons and we shave. We also have babies and feed them with our boobs. Guys with sisters don't hesitate to pick up a box of tampons when they're at the store.
  6. Great dads to daughters: Obviously guys with brothers can also be great dads to daughters, but men with sisters start out that way. They get girls. Men without them? Not so much.
  7. Fashion sense: This only applies to men who had fashion-conscious sisters, obviously. But if they did, they have a valuable lesson few men without sisters get.
  8. They know how to kiss: Kissing siblings = vomit. But men with older sisters had friends of their older sisters to teach them how to kiss. Many men I know who had a slightly older sister also have strange stories about how one of her friends was his first kiss.

Does your husband have sisters? Does it make him a better husband?

Now, I have to say the opposite is also true. Women who grow up with brothers, get men better than those that don't. My DH only has a brother, I have 3 brothers and no sisters. We get along great because I "get" him! I'm used to dealing with guys and their weird habbits and how to talk to them and get them to do things. (hehe) My DH will buy me tampons and pads if I need them because I'm not afraid to walk into an auto parts store by myself and buy oil and wind shield wipers or shocks for my car. So I say its a two way street. I think that women should give a little too and learn how to speak "men" just as much as men should learn to speak "women".  just my opinion though :)

My husband had 4 sisters, and he generally fits all of these, except for the fashion sense - when he was younger, he had better fashion sense than them....but now he just wears the same thing all the time. Literally, the exact same thing. He has like 5 of the same shirt.

But yeah, he is very understand of how women work :)

Men who have one sis, and lots of bro's are apt to act really ass macho in their home with their very own spouse. It's like they are only this way at their home, with every other woman just to show off in public they are kind. Friendliest.
Their own home is their kingdom,...GOOD for them ! I do see a shift in manners when the balance is more sis's than bro's in the upbringing years.

Can't always believe everything you read, my hubby is an only child and grew up around his uncles but he's the sweetest guy I ever met and he's very understanding. My brothers grew up mostly with me and my sister and they are a-holes to the fullest. In our house the women rule but they are still a-holes.

My hubbie grew up with 3 sisters and 2 step sisters, no brothers and he is the youngest of all the siblings, yet he is clueless when it comes to anything relating to the female population. On the positive side, he a great dad to four daughters.

This list is imbecilic at best. I grew up with 2 brothers and never ONCE in our lives did we grunt and talk about monster garage. That is an absurd stereotype. We talked about Art, Literature, and business.
