Dangerous Curves

An interesting thing about scientific studies , they reveal a lot about human behavior while further confirming what we already see every day.  I read this article, Curvy women like a drug to men’s brains, yesterday that stated, “For the study, 14 men with the average age of 25 looked at “before” and “after” pictures of nude women who had plastic surgery to get more shapely behinds.”  Researchers concluded by the male response that, “photos of the women resulted in increased activity in the part of the brain associated with rewards.”

Well, I suppose this study has a lot a lot of merit, but any nude picture of women is bound to to cause some kind of stimuli in a man.  I found it interesting that they attributed the male’s biological response as scientific explanation of “sexual harassment, whistling to women on the street, etc.  They even said that some of this research can be used in understanding more about sexual addiction. (Insert your own famous golfer joke here).

What do you think about the research?  Do you think women should be studied to see what they’re response to the male form is?  After seeing Alvin Ailey male dancers perform, I can attest to being “mesmerized” by the physical male body.  It’s a beautiful thing. Oh yes, it is. But I digress.

What do you think this study says about how men and women perceive each others physical appearance? How does this show up in how we interact on the dating scene?  Should women play up or play down their dangerous curves if they want to attract the right kind of attention?

Brown Sugar was just so-so to me. Not big into hip hop. Loved Love & Basketball. Loved The Best Man!!

Loved the Terrance Howard line at the bachelor party – “It’s gonna be a ho-asis up in here!”

Love Jones & The Best Man both have good soundtracks.

Wrong, you can train yourself not to. I have more important things to do than worry about a woman’s overrated nude figure.

Yes, Shamar is too pretty & knows it. Boris is borderline too pretty, but he seems like a nice dude.

SCool – Yeah, Marlon!

I like men like Isaiah Washington & Edris & Lawrence Fishburne, for their intensity when they act. That does it for me.

Larenz reminds me of a shorter version of a guy I had a crush on in high school.
