Is sexual attraction mostly caused because of environment factors base on culture/sociology and environment factors or psychological and personality traits of person?

Why some people go after some people and not others? The likes and dislikes of sexual attraction mostly A or B factors?

A. environment factors base on culture/sociology and environment like culture, group, media...
B. psychological and personality traits of person?

Or Both?

If it is psychological and personality traits of person? Can some one elaborate and explain more?

Sorry my textbooks don't really explain much on this.

What clinical lab studies of been done?

Does depends on a combination of the person possessing the traits play apart on the criteria of the person who is attracted?

Are you referring to gender or to individuals?

For example a friend of mind is sexual attractive to tomgirls, other friend hate tomgirls, other friend is sexual attractive to biker girls and other country or cowgirl. Other likes bodybuilder girl with big biceps so on. Well the other guy hates that. Some like tattoos and others hate that.

Thinks like voice, how they talk, smell, adornments, hair shape and look, hair color, skin color, face,eye color, clothing, appearance, looks, dress, perfume, style........ personality types like shy, confident, out going, reserved, sports, country,partying type, city,urban, hobbies, tomgirl so on.

I'm not well read on this topic, but my best guess is that it's mostly environmental.

There may be some biological reasons for attraction, but there's a reason fitness is prized in some cultures, big butts (booties) in others, and pale or dark skin in others.

Those preferences are based on local culture and situational learning, not genetics.

Okay, with that clarification, then I agree with iNow, its environmental, and all based on factors from growing up.

Like most behavioral traits it's likely a combination. It's darn hard to study though, with some suggesting it's mostly environmental/cultural, while others point to bias towards pretty close kinship facial features under the hypothesis that 2nd cousin offspring seems to be the optimum distance to reinforce beneficial mutations while avoiding the disadvantageous ones. Then there's some evidence of peacock effects--things like larger relative penis size in tropical climates, and breast size far larger in some haplogroups than necessary for breastfeeding etc.
