If you’ve been striking out with the ladies, shove a couple cotton balls in your mouth and see what happens . . .

A new study found women might find men more attractive if they MUMBLE a lot.

Researchers recorded 42 people speaking, and had a separate group rate how attractive their voices were.

People who mumble tend to blend their vowels together.  So they ran all the audio through a program that looked at speech patterns and how far apart different vowel sounds were.
