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?

Lurker ~ Honey, get your kinky twists out of a knot, it was just an observation and a compliment, damn. No one is stalking the man. He IS on FB which tells me he doesnt mind being found and/or seen.

Anyone with their own personal web pages arent that hard to find/see. I find that he is very humble about himself from reading along just like I find some bloggers here are too high on themselves. My opinion of course.

DreamsM ~ Well, I guess you’ll have to stay at a disadvantage then. I’m a little shy. ;)

Raqi ~ The movie he co-starred with Mo’nique yeah that’s how I found out about him too. He may not be that well known but he is still a moving work of art. LOL

Letter to the Nasty Heifer that messed up the bathroom:

Dear Nasty Heifer,

I’m sorry Aunt Flo came to visit you unannounced probably.
I understand you are angry.
Your anger has now left the bathroom toilet a crime scene that not even the GBI wants to touch.
Oh, Nasty Heifer!

How could you!!!!

lurker ~ It was merely a response sweetie. I really wish we could all read/sense an individual’s tone on here. I certainly wasn’t offended. And you are right. He is free until he’s married. And he is also grown. So I am sure if I came across unfavorably, like a grown a*** man, he would have said so. And its obvious just going by his 4:25 he simply appreciated the compliment. Please calm down about this you are actually one of the “good” reads on here, so don’t spoil it for me. And Its also obvious the man can “speak” for himself. Youre all over “here”….just saying.

Dreams ~ Who lied and said life was fair? And “I owe you”? Hahahaaa If I remember correctly I gave YOU a compliment. LOL
