There have been plenty of studies which suggest women are more attracted to guys with a low-pitched voice. But a new study also says that women also consider these men only for short-term flings since they're also perceived as being more likely to cheat.

The study involved asking 90 women to listen to men's voices that were electronically manipulated to sound higher or lower. The ladies had to rate the voice they thought was more attractive for a long-term relationship versus a short-term one. The deep-voiced men were seen as being more suitable for a fling and more likely to cheat.

Based on the findings, the authors believe it may provide more insight into how human voices evolved and how we choose our mates. Study author Dr Jillian O'Connor from McMaster University in Canada explains:
"The sound of someone's voice can affect how we think of them,"

"Until now, it's been unclear why women would like the voices of men who might cheat. But we found that the more women thought these men would cheat, the more they were attracted to them for a brief relationship when they are less worried about fidelity."
