Why Are Women Willing To Sleep With The Ancient Or Ugly?

Women seem, to me, to be willing to sleep with the oldest and ugliest people. Whereas, men seem to be unable to get themselves to sleep with ancient or ugly women. Is this something biological or environmental? It can't be due to evolution, since you'd want to mate with the most handsome, most symmetrical, healthiest, most robust mate possible.

for me there are two reasons for this in my view. 1) women stop being able to give birth much younger than men stop being able to father them. Therefore evolution does play a role, of that im sure. 2) Some women are motivated only by greed. A rich old ugly man seems preferable to a young poor man any day. Now, im not saying this is true of all women but certainly a good number of them do. Also, i think this may well be evolutionary too. A woman wanting a man to father her children will look for a rich one if she can to increase financial security.
