Reminders of the Sun Influence Men’S Attitude Towards Luxury Products

This research takes an evolutionary perspective to examine how reminders of the sun affect preference for luxury products. Findings of two experimental studies indicate that sun reminders increase men’s preference for luxury products. This effect is mediated by men’s increased sexual motivation as a result of sun reminders.
