Meet Adam Levine, the sexiest man alive: also the traits that make him sexy

Adam Levine

Adam Levine's 'testosterone-sculpted face' earned him the title of People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2013 award, according to scientists.
Dr Helen Fisher, an anthropologist at Rutgers University who studies love and attraction, told Live Science that the Maroon 5 frontman has 'stereotypically masculine features', including a square jaw, high cheekbones and thin lips, which both men and women are drawn to.
'Look at that jaw, it really juts out on the side,' she observed. 'His brow ridges are such that he could probably stand in the showerand keep his eyes open.'

She said men with masculine faces and higher testosterone levels tend to have a better immune system and stronger sex drives.
Dr Lisa DeBruine, a psychologist at the University of Glasgow's Face Lab in Scotland, who studies the psychology of attractiveness, also deemed the six-foot-tall Mr Levine a perfect specimen, with a mix of 'symmetrical' features that aren't too big or small.

She said some women find such 'manly faces' a turnoff because they conjure up an image of someone less willing to commit to their partners or raise a family.
However, she says 34-year-old Mr Levine counterbalances this by being 'really happy and smiley and not stern.'
'He seems to have it all for being a sexy man.'
New Jersey-based psychic, Linda Lauren, agreed that Mr Levine has a 'great energy' which boosts his attractability.
'He has a lot of deep red in his aura energy that is sprinkled with purple and yellow. This will make him attractive to the eye and it will signal romance at every turn. Red-hot!

Studies have shown that men on the other hand, tend to be more consistent in what they find attractive.
'Some women really like ultra-masculine guys and some women really dislike them,' she said. 'Even the same woman will like different things at different times or different life stages.'

And many women have had bad experiences with 'extremely handsome men', which may make Mr Levine's 'ultra-masculine looks' unattractive to them, Dr Fisher concluded.
Adam Levine was officially crowned People's Sexiest Man Alive on the NBC singing contest The Voice this Tuesday with Carson Daly presenting him with a copy of the magazine on air.
The Moves like Jagger singer said he was surprised, but felt 'sexy' at the same time.
Inside this week's issue of People, the tattooed rocker displays his slim, toned body, which is the result of yoga and spinning sessions. He also discusses his love of nudity and reveals he 'can't wait' to settle down with his fiancée, Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo.
Other gentlemen to make the cut on People Magazine's Sexiest Men Alive list this year were Chris Hemsworth, Hugh Jackman, Idris Elba, Jimmy Fallon, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, Chris Pine, Pharell Williams, Ronan Farrow, Justin Theroux, and David Beckham.
Last year's top pick was actor Channing Tatum, preceded by Bradley Cooper in 2011.
