Finger Length Ratio And Female Infidelity

A study with a decent sample size (N = 274 female participants) found that the index finger to ring finger ratio (2D:4D) in women predicts their potential risk of cheating.

Being more exposed to the sex hormone oestrogen in the womb leads to women’s index fingers growing longer than their ring finger.

By contrast, being exposed to more of the male sex hormone testosterone in the womb has a more ‘masculinising’ effect – and results in a longer ring finger and a shorter index finger.

Men with longer ring fingers than index fingers have been found to be better sportsmen.

Eiluned Pearce of Oxford University carried out the research which has been published in a Royal Society Journal.

She took measurements of the finger lengths of 274 female volunteers and also sampled their DNA.

They also completed psychological tests on their relationship quality.

She found that ‘women with higher (more feminine) left hand digit ratios are more impulsive and rate their romantic relationships less favourably.’ She added that the finding is ‘intriguing, because the opposite might be expected’.

Ok, a few words of caution. As with any sociosexuality research that relies in part on self-report surveys, take it with a grain of salt. Women lie, and women lie a lot when the question has to do with their romantic longings and sexual history. Women as a sex will “lie down” (heh), meaning they will undercount the number of men they have slept with and will reclassify non-vaginal sex as platonic friendship.

Having said that, we can assume, since women will lie in one direction (to socially signal more chasteness than they in reality possess), that the differences in sexual behavior or relationship satisfaction between high and low finger ratio women would hold as a valid finding, despite the magnitude of those differences possibly skewed by social expectation bias. This would only not be the case if, for some reason, high finger ratio women and low finger ratio women lied at different frequencies. That is, if high 2D:4D women lied more about their romantic lives than low 2D:4D women lied about theirs, we could not trust any uncorrected self-report data that attempted to compare the two groups.

This isn’t an idle misgiving. It’s plausible that very feminine women are more disposed to lying about their chasteness than are masculinized women, given that femininity is in general associated with a greater sensitivity to social pressure and with affinity for emotional manipulation of others.

One more word of caution: the researchers appear to have used “impulsivity” and “dissatisfaction with relationship” as proxies for “higher likelihood of cheating”. These aren’t equivalent, despite the former two characteristics being a leading indicator of the latter risk. Dissatisfied women in relationships can conceivably control themselves and resist infidelity……


….but that’s not the way to bet.

Still, based on my experience with women, I believe this study has touched on a truth about women that would be more brightly illuminated with better methodology.

In the research paper, she speculates that women with the higher index finger to ring finger ration are likely to be ‘more feminized’ and more highly sought after by males.

Because they know they have a lot of options, ‘this might be associated with dissatisfaction with current partners’ and this might lead to flings – or as the scientists call it ‘opportunistic mating’ and ‘impulsive’ mating with men who are not their husband or partner.

The two main strategies in sex are ‘opportunistic mating’ – in other words having lots of flings – and a strategy ‘focusing on long-term commitment’.

She writes that ‘If females with more feminised morphology [body shape] have higher ‘mate value’,

SMV: sexual market value.

The Chateau isn’t an outpost of the world; the world is an outpost of the Chateau.

this might be associated with dissatisfaction with current partners, leading to impulsive extra-pair matings and seeking alternative mates.’

Finger length ratio is a well-tread topic at the Chateau. There has been debate whether masculinized or feminine women are more likely to cheat (proponents of the former reasoning that women with high T are hornier and thus cheat risks), but this study says more feminine women are the cheat risks, which validates a classic Chateau pearl necklace of wisdom:

Options = Instability

The researchers also looked at the ratio of index finger to ring finger lengths in males, but did not find any connection with relationship quality.

FYI, there is very little discrepancy between the finger ratios of gay and straight men. If anything, gay men have slightly more “masculine” ratios.

That last bit about the dearth of evidence for a digit ratio-to-relationship quality correlation in men is very telling. It indirectly supports my observation that women make holistic assessments of male mate quality, seeking out a panoply of hsmv traits in men, some of which contradict each other. As such, the playing field is open to men of varying masculinity and femininity — think on, for example, how common it is to see brooding artist soyboys and musclehead jocks with cute girls — and how that might manifest biologically in a natural selection process that neither favors nor disfavors for long high 2D:4D men over low 2D:4D men.

It’s interesting to speculate on the existence of Darwinian balances that keep lower digit ratio men in the game, and further to speculate that this is the reason why there isn’t a connection between a man’s digit ratio and his relationship quality.

That connection is easier to see when looking directly at the source of a man’s happiness: his woman’s beauty, or lack thereof. Forget male finger ratios; if you want to know if a man is satisfied in his relationship, just ask yourself if you would eagerly fuck his girlfriend or wife. If yes, he’s happy.


  1. A more feminine woman has hordes of men begging her to either go out with them or have sex with them,

    while a less feminine woman has less offers

    more offers means more likely to eventually do it and cheat

  2. It depends I think so. We can expect a ratio indicating the high exposure to testosterone women cheat for the different reasons to the low ratio.

    .”It’s plausible that very feminine women are more disposed to lying about their chasteness than are masculinized women, given that femininity is in general associated with a greater sensitivity to social pressure and with affinity for emotional manipulation of others.”

    Exactly. All women have potential to cheat. Maybe at more fare ends of the ratio spectrum it will be more cheating. Eg. – hyper masculine Women, hyper feminine women. But for very different reasons and motivations. My thought (I agree with you) is with the high t ratio they genuinaly want more variety because theyre libidos is more like mens. More feminine women can cheat if not happy. In stable fullfilling relationship I believe the feminine woman is very less probable to cheat (she does not have this need for variety, she just needs one man to “tame” her). If he has the ability to tame her,, and that means make her happy (not necesarily what she thinks will make her happy, it is dependant on the woman’s awareness of her self).

    The high t women are probably more what men desire in the way of many things. (Libido like a man, less neurotic) But I think so a feminine woman is going to be the best long term. With female hormones also comes the emotional sugestibility, and if you know how you handle that, a highly feminine woman will make one very happy man.

    [CH: a wise comment, eofahapi. men may like the expedience of a “manageable” or “relatable” tomboy, but men’s hearts only truly sing with very feminine women. it’s the decision between choosing a small reward for less effort, or a big reward for more effort.]

      • Captain, I think I could never write a self help book. Even if when I am 40 years old with a “empty nest” and I have the patience to sit to write,, it would probably never be self help type. And never would be Cypriot greek.

        In my lap top, I have a great program that edits what you write. It is genius. But now I always write in the phone because my son has obsession with laptops and will take it from me and throw it! I will ask my husband and say to you the name of the program, he uses it for businese needs. I loved it before. Now if I type in the phone I never use auto correct, I change so much between the Greek and English and if people think so the auto correct is bad in english,, they are blessed they do not use Greek. Look to how confuseing our grammar is.

        “γάμος” means wedding

        “γαμώ” means the f word

        Both are pronounced almost the same only with accent in the first part of the word for wedding and last part in the dirty word. A person tryeing to talk Greek (And this hapens very much) can try to say, “I am going to a wedding”, but because of his wrong placement in the accent he could say “I am going to f….”

        It is awkward. Greek grammar is very dificult. It is horrible to write I think so. And Cypriot? Very very interesting dialect but main land Greeks would never read a book in Cypriot dialect. They would not understand it. The island was colonised very many times and the dialect is very different. (Crete have dialect but not in the same extent). Cypriot dialect contains ancient Greek words that the mainland people do not now use and Turkish words.

        In the public schools now, there is a very big focus on standard modern Greek (discoraging of dialect). That is a two edge sword imo, in the one side I feel little bit disrespecting to the local dialect, But In the other sidet is good for future careers. My son will have private standard Greek lessons because he will attend a private school where the lessons is in english. I also attended a private school where the more classes was in English. The education is better there, you just must make sure your kid is also haveing the modern Greek classes. If you send your child to a public school here now they maybe will come out talking Bulgarian or Roma language.

        Sorry, I got very interested in the language topic and talked and talked and talked. If I ever write a book, it will be perfect English or perfect Greek (with a special dedication to Cypriot dialect in the front in the front to make it my point. It will be very anti turk) 😄

      They cheat often to satisfy their libidos and to escape the said struggle
      Most of them are not good looking so their choices may be a few

  4. Hm. On my right hand, the ring finger and the index finger are equal, while on the left hand, the ring finger is longer. Strange.


  5. Relationships are a constant power struggle. Make sure you hold all the cards so they’re less likely to bluff (cheat). Oh, they’ll complain about it, and demand “equality,” but that’s only because theyve got no hand to play. Don’t fall for it and give them two of your four aces in the interest of “fairness,” or you deserve it when they show a full house and clean you out (cheating, divorce rap3, whatever).

    It’s a game you CAN win, but you have to throw all your old-fashioned notions of fairness and equality out the window. They aren’t playing by male honor rules, so neither should you. Press every advantage and you may just be able to walk away with the pot.

She did wait to see it, and said that she regrets appearing in that scene.

        Something all Americans indubitably learned in public schools: when the USSR occupied eastern parts of Poland, local Jews — almost all of whom were ommunists prior to the war — think — contemporary SJWs — eagerly assisted the Soviets in identifying “class enemies”, which resulted in over a million Poles shipped to Siberia.

        This expatriation involved cattle cars, and months of transport in freezing temperatures. So when the USSR pulled back when Germans pushed east, there were socres to be settIed.
