    Nerdy men attract
    the best babes! Is there a fatal chemistry between intellectual
    men and super-glamorous women? So, when Salman Rushdie, 62, attended
    a recent writers’ gala with 26-year-old Harvard grad and glamorous
    Min Lieskovsky, he proved ‘men with brains’ are irresistible
    and sexy!

    The poster
    boy of intellectualism, Rushdie has successfully flaunted his pretty
    poster girls. Be it the sensual Padma Lakshmi or Pia Glenn, he always
    gets the best women. Recently, the Globe and Mail reported
    how the podgy intellectual’s sex appeal was his power and status,
    which made him a babe magnet. The Daily Mail debated on Rushdie’s
    secret formula, as he flaunted his new squeeze! Says London-based
    film producer, Jagmohan Mundra, “Salman always gets the best
    girls. Intellect is still rated high in the dating world. Women
    find his attention hard to resist. There’s an ‘awe factor’
    being seen with Rushdie, and women love his attention and gaze,
    with the cameras clicking away.”

    The truth is
    that successful men always seek beauty. “You seek what you
    don’t have. If you’re not good-looking, you seek a good-looking
    partner. Successful men with average looks get the best girls. Women
    are bored by vain men, who are self-obsessed. So, opposites attract!
    Most beautiful women want to be in a relationship with men who can
    stimulate them intellectually, because IQ (intelligence quotient)
    is what titillates the mind,” adds Mundra.

    Women love
    the allure of fame and power. Brainy men are never intimidated by
    beautiful women, but love their admiration. Says model Laila Raouss,
    “Intellectual men love women with great beauty. It’s a
    fascinating combination of power, beauty and brains.” That’s
    something actor Ayesha Dharker also agrees with, “Bright men
    are very attractive. I admire men like Salman Rushdie, Shyam Benegal,
    Ismail Merchant, Charles Correa and Girish Karnad.”

    Almost every
    Hollywood heroine finds Woody Allen irresistible! It seems geeks
    can really captivate. Says Somnath of Sycorian matchmakers in India,
    “There’s always a high demand in India for nerds and computer
    specialists, compared to businessmen or architects. They have status,
    money and power. They get the best girls in the marriage market.
    Intellectual men are also perceived to be good providers.”

    Not only that,
    they’re also a ‘safe’ bet, and are known to be ‘emotionally
    sensible’ along with having a high ‘intellectual quotient’.
    Says Dr Avdesh Sharma, psychiatrist, “In a relationship, couples
    spend most of their time conversing. Good looks are just the initial
    trigger. Women look for brain power as they prefer mature men. For
    men, women’s beauty is something they like to flaunt, initially.
    They love that women look at them in wonderment and admiration.
    Of course, women love them for the fringe benefits. A man’s
    status and power gets him the most gorgeous women.”
