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?

I read the original article and thought it made the mistake of conveying the impression that the bigger the backside, the better. If anyone is foolish enough to interpret things that way, I would strongly suggest proceeding with caution. The more a woman’s backside resembles a Greyhound bus, or sunrise over the Sahara (if wearing bright, tight pants over a giant bottom), the less attention it will get. Jennifer Lopez, OUTSTANDING, but does not mean if someone tells you to “haul azz” and yours is so big you have to make two trips, that you are a Goddess of Love. Sorry does not give one a pass to have big …
