Is male dimorphism under sexual selection in humans? A meta-analysis
TLDR
Arguments that strength/muscularity can be considered sexually selected in humans are supported, but concerns over other forms of masculinity are raised and the need to increase tests of evolutionary hypotheses outside of industrialized populations is highlighted.
Sexual selection on male vocal fundamental frequency in humans and other anthropoids
TLDR
It is shown across anthropoids that sexual dimorphism in fundamental frequency (F0) increased during evolutionary transitions towards polygyny, and decreased during transitions towards monogamy, and that low-F0 vocalizations predict perceptions of men's dominance and attractiveness and predict hormone profiles related to immune function.
Sexual Selection on Human Voices
Vocal communication is important in many mammals, including many nonhuman primates, but in no species is it more important than in humans. Given the relevance of vocal communication to both men and
Sexual Selection on Human Faces and Voices
TLDR
Two types of sexual selection operating on men are focused on: female mate choice, which favors traits that attract females, and male contests, which favor traits for excluding competitors from mates by force or threat of force.
Correlated Male Preferences for Femininity in Female Faces and Voices
TLDR
Novel evidence is presented for systematic variation in men's preferences for feminine women's preferences, converging evidence for concordant preferences for sexually dimorphic traits in different domains is presented, and findings of correlations between women's facial and vocal femininity are complemented.
Total Sexual Selection on Men's Voices
Previous correlational research indicates sexual selection in the evolution of vocal masculinity. There is a lack of experimental research on pitch variation when compared to two other sexually

Effects of sexual dimorphism on facial attractiveness
TLDR
The results of asking subjects to choose the most attractive faces from continua that enhanced or diminished differences between the average shape of female and male faces indicate a selection pressure that limits sexual dimorphism and encourages neoteny in humans.
Men's voices and women's choices
TLDR
The results imply that there could be sexual selection through female choice for male vocal characteristics, deeper voices being preferred, however, the function of the preference is unclear given that the estimates were generally incorrect.
Sexual Selection
TLDR
I must confess that I am not convinced of the action of sexual selection in producing the colours of insects, but it cannot be denied that these facts are strikingly corroborative of Mr. Darwin's views.
Menstrual cycle alters face preference
TLDR
It is shown that female preference for secondary sexual traits in male face shapes varies with the probability of conception across the menstrual cycle, similar to that of men with low fluctuating asymmetry.
The voice of personality: stereotyped judgments and their relation to voice quality and sex of speaker.
TLDR
There were correlations between personality judgments from the voices and the vocal characteristics of the voices, particularly with reference to the speaker's sex.
