Prominent veins have strangely been admired by females for as long as we can remember. But how can something as simple as a vein be attractive to the opposite sex?

The truth is, it isn’t the vein itself that draws the interest, it’s what the vein represents. Visible veins are an indication of low body fat and an increase in blood flow which is considered healthy.

Without the soft layer of fat masking the veins, they sit closer to the surface and advertise how healthy one must be. The increase in blood flow indicates that the heart is working well and again that the individual is healthy.

Prominent veins may also be a primitive indicator for physical performance. With the lack of subcutaneous fat and higher blood volume, it’s logical for a female to see this man as a better athlete, as someone who can protect and someone who can perform well in the bedroom.

At the foundation of all attraction is health. Looking good merely means that everything is working well. It’s not too disimilar to how a stag prances around and shows off his antlers to convince females that he’s the best choice for mating.

It’s also why men aren’t attracted to a veiny woman, because a healthy woman should have a higher fat percentage than men for child birth reasons.
