Why Do Women Like Bad Boys?

Learn why women like bad boys from sex therapist Dr. Megan Fleming in this Howcast video about the psychology of sex and sexual attraction.


You’re either watching this because you’re one of those bad boys or perhaps you’re one of the women trying to figure out, ‘Why is it that I keep going for that one guy who is just unavailable? There’s just something that just constantly draws me toward' And I can honestly say that sometimes we all want what we can’t have; it’s quite a seduction to think about, ‘what, if only, they choose me?’ and so, sometimes, there’s a sense of, ‘it would be so amazing and wonderful if I could get this guy’ and it may also be that, there’s a part of you that thinks, you can be the one to turn him around and change him, so that, you know, make him the kind of guy that, of course, would choose you, and turn away from his old bad habits. All I can tell you either way is that, if you find yourself in a pattern of being attracted to men that are not available or who ultimately don’t meet your needs or treat you with respect and enjoy your company, then I’d have you really reconsider whether or not the strategy or this attraction is something that really works for you.
