What kind of person would do that? I'd never, that's for sure...

I mean, I would never due this, but apparently when we think we might have sex with someone, we'll say anything to make it happen.

A new study out of the University of Rochester in New York found that when our, quote, "sexual system" is activated, we'll immediately start telling lies to improve our chances of gettin' it on.

And our sexual system gets activated early in the process.  When you meet someone and your brain thinks, "Hey, I might potentially have sex with this person," that's when it kicks in... and the lying starts.

The researchers say people, quote, "embellish, conform, change their attitudes regarding certain topics, and outright lie... all to make a good first impression."

On the bright side, not everyone tells huge lies.  Most people just, quote, "find ways to emphasize different parts of how they see themselves." 

I, for one, just can't believe people would be so shameless to do that. I, Matt Malone, would never stoop that low to lie in order to have sex, but of course, you don't have to lie when you're as talented, handsome, well-put together, financially and emotionally stable, uh... outgoing, personable... as I am.
