So my friends and I when we get bored talk about some stupid stuff usually but today and like for the past few days an interesting topic came up. A friend of mines who is Brazilian told me that in Brazil, a good looking Blonde guy would be tough competition. A guy with Blonde hair and Blue eyes would basically score more women than Kaka or Cristiano Ronaldo (I know CR7 is Portuguese but I am just saying some things).

Women will throw themselves at such guys, openly hit on them, make moves on them, and things like one night stands will be extremely easy for them to land. I heard the same thing about Spain and Italy. Blonde hair men with blue eyes are the craze.

On the flip side I have heard similar things about Black men in Sweden and Germany as well. That women give them bonus points for being minorities and such.

So I want to hear from you guys who seem to be well traveled, how true is the exoticness assumption? Can a Blonde male in Brazil who is good looking truly score more women than Cristiano Ronaldo?

Most people who are "well traveled" weren't worrying very much about things like that.

I think there is more admiration in l.america for blondes than in countries like Spain or Italy. It maybe true about the "exotism" but has more to do with the nationality than with the hair colour. Each nationality has an "erotic myth" but personally, i prefer brunette men.

All my travels have taken place in Europe and Asia so far, but I think there's some truth to this. I think that in Europe and East Asia, there's a higher % of women interested in dating guys that look different than there are actual guys around that look different. So even though the majority of Koreans and the majority of Swedes might prefer their own nationality, there will be enough who don't that it will make it seem that the "exotic" are in high demand.

I think you're better off finding a forum with a bunch of women from those countries and directing that question at them.
