Check sound and detect cheating partner

Your voice could provide an insight into perceived adulterous behavior, for a study has suggested that people with "attractive" voices are more likely to be love cheats.

Researchers from McMaster University in Canada found that women think men, who have deep voices are more likely to be love cheats. And if a woman has a high-pitched voice, men feel she is more likely to be unfaithful, found the study.

"In terms of sexual strategy, we found that men and women will use voice pitch as a warning sign of future betrayal," lead author Jillian O'Conner said. "So the more attractive the voice - a higher pitch for women and lower pitch for men - the more likely the chances he or she will cheat," O'Conner was quoted as saying by Daily Mail.

David Feiberg, who advised on the study, said, "The reason voice pitch influences perceptions of cheating is likely due to the relationship between pitch, hormones and infidelity." He said men with higher testosterone levels have lower pitched voices, and women with higher estrogen levels have higher pitched voices.

"High levels of these hormones are associated with adulterous behavior and our findings indicate individuals are somewhat aware of the link and may use this in their search for a romantic partner," Feiberg said.
