Is a Sexy Voice More Attractive Than a Pretty Face?

I read an article in Psychology Today entitled, Is a Sexy Voice More Attractive Than a Pretty Face? My question with the statistics and the studies is not whether a sexy voice is more attractive than one’s face but how they judged their findings.

There is no doubt that women find men with a deep voice both sexy and attractive – the late great Barry White had not only an incredibly rich, warm sensual singing voice but his speaking voice was just as alluring. We swooned over this man.

However, I disagree about part of the information regarding the female voice. The article said that “men prefer women with higher-pitched voices. Women with higher-pitched voices are perceived to be younger-as well as thinner.” In all my years of teaching voice, I have not found that men prefer women with high-pitched voices. Quite the opposite. Of all the great roles in the movies where a sensual voice was warranted, the movie companies did not select Fran Drescher, Wanda Sykes or Anna Kendrick!

There is a great scene in the movie Victor/Victoria in which the lovely and sexy Lesley Ann Warren is trying to seduce James Garner. Garner has recently switched his affections from Warren to Julie Andrews. You can see by his expression that Warren’s high-pitched whiny voice is turning him off.

[Incidentally, for comedy, a high-pitched annoying voice is a bonus. Listen to Jane Curtain’s nasal whine when she is playing a comedic role; then listen to her speak in an interview. Curtain’s ‘real’ speaking voice is wonderfully resonant.]

What makes a voice attractive is its warmth. A voice which is being powered by the chest cavity has warmth. Unfortunately, most people (99%) are not using their cavity in this manner; therefore, their voices lack warmth. Add the chest cavity to the placement of voiced sound, however, and you have voices like that of Scarlett Johansson, Michelle Pfeiffer, Angelina Jolie, Felicia Rashad, and Kathleen Turner.

The question I have for the statistics which were cited in the article from Psychology Today is whether they were questioning the men about their motives: were the men judging the female voice as to whether they just wanted to hook up with her or whether they really wanted to listen to what she was saying? A high-pitched female voice may signify thinner and younger but let’s be honest about the motive. A 50-year-old man looking for a 20-year-old is not looking for intellect! He’s looking for a face without wrinkles, breasts that are firm, and legs without cellulite! If she sounds like a bimbo, oh well.

On the other hand, a deep, rich, resonant female voice sounds not only more sensual but much more confident. Whose voice would you recommend for a company’s board of directors? Kelly Ripa’s or Julia Ormond’s?

Yes, you can sound more confident. Yes, you can sound sexier; however, you must first discover your ‘real’ voice – the one that’s hiding inside your chest just waiting to be found.

Halloween Sexy Costumes – Adding Tang to Halloween

Witch costumes touch an ordinary gathering with magic. Witches are often associated with darkness and evil and hence, the lady in the witch’s dress may end up looking wicked and harsh. Usually, it is during theme parties and Halloween that a witch’s costume is brought out to be worn. These days, these costumes are becoming quite the vogue and can be easily picked up online at low costs. Couples may make a grand entry in a Halloween party dressed as a sexy witch and wizard.

A sexy witch is made of more than just a witch costume. She needs the accessories mentioned below:

o Metallic stick on nails
o Pointed witch hat
o Fake magic broom
o Witch nose and chin

The most popular color for making sexy witch costumes is black. But this is no thumb rule. Any dark shade may be worn. In fact, if you are portraying a good witch, you may even choose light shades. Usually, the sexy witch costumes are snug-fit, thigh-length dresses. Some sexy witch costumes may also drop till the ankles, but are still sausage-fitting. You may choose whether you want a long or a short dress, but make sure it fits tight.

Once the sexy witch costume is on you, it is time to put on the accessories. Attach the metal nails and make sure your make up is on the rough and touch side. The pointed witch’s hat must adorn your head – check if it fits right by aligning it properly in the mirror. Put on next the witch’s fake nose and chin. This may involve the use of some spirit gum. Mostly, the spirit gum is included with the costume and accessories package. Do not forget the spirit gum – if you don’t want to end up with a constantly falling fake nose or chin.

There is still one thing missing – the fake witch’s broom which seals the sexy witch costume get up. During Halloween parties, fun can be had by waving the broom in circles as though casting a spell. A timely warning though – try not to use the broom as you have seen witches do in movies and books – trying to use them for flying is a sure way to see the inside of a hospital.

Remember to memorize few magical spells from movies such as Harry Potter and the Witches Secret. They surely come handy during the Halloween parties especially when you need to introduce yourself.
