    Guys with classically masculine facial features, such as square jawlines and pronounced cheekbones, may produce sperm of a lower quality than men who don’t share the same features, a new study finds.

    I'd be interested to see a study on the opposite, that being to draw a possible correlation between female "attractiveness" and reproductive health. If it turns out that "attractive" women have the opposite, in other words high reproductive capabilities/health, then it could be a genetic predisposition designed to encourage propagation of only the healthiest stock (the hypothesis being that due to low sperm motility, an "attractive" male would have to mate with an "attractive" female to have the best chance at successfully procreating.)

    I think your hypothesis may be right!
