Because red is the color of blood, it is associated with strength, health, and passion. For example, we admire rosy cheeks. Then there is the "Scarlet Letter" signifying a fallen and sinful woman; the red dress is also associated with the "ladies of the night."
In human color psychology, red is associated with heat, energy and blood, and emotions that "stir the blood", including anger, passion, and love.
