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?

@ Leggs — On the issue of Fine ~ I was told that when a man says a woman is Fine, it has more to do with her personality, her confidence and how she interacts with him and others

Yeah, that sounds very sweet. And that is what a women is considered if she has those attributes, sweet. Not fine. That same sweet woman drives home on from socials wondering why she didn’t get hardly any #’s, and Mariah, Ms. Cute face, slim waist, and killer bod got all of the male attention. And Mariah wasn’t overly nice to anyone.

While that maybe true for a very,very, small segment of men, that is not popular culture’s definition of FINE. By in large, the word FINE is an adjective strictly used to describe physical appearance.

Professor…ahhh : he didn’t have enough stuff worth donating besides, he asked for it back so he deserves it back.

His favorite outfit would consists of my flight attendant uniform but I don’t fly anymore and it would be strange to wear that to work anyway.
Also, I do have stockings on so maybe I’m only 1/2 commando.

For me, Looking hot gives me confidence. It’s my way of saying
I’m not undone because we broke up and that I still got it.
When you look hot, i wouldn’t doubt for one minute that he’s going to wonder what I’m up to.

That’s how I like to say goodbye.

@Atltwen ~ I agree on the sweetness part if that was all the person had going. However, I believe I said also having a nice body and nice face makes one fine. Simply having a nice face doesn’t make one fine (well it shouldn’t).

Well…I used to be a stick figure, but finally filled out…a bit too much at one point…and am now a size 10, 12 at the higher end of my weight range, and am mostly satisfied with myself. (Being my own worst critic, I continually strive for what I consider ‘my perfect body.’

Regardless, my belief is that my sexy doesn’t come from what I have on me but what I have in me. I felt just as sexy as a size 6 as I do as a size 12.

mqew and Leggs: you don’t know him like I do.
He will look, stare, smile, drool, etc….

Of course I still have feelings for him. He will always have a special place in my heart but I’m looking that the big picture:

I want to be married, have more kids, be with someone that’s not wishy washy and loves me more.
That’s not him. So when I “miss” him, I think about all the things about him I didn’t like and won’t change and I focus on my son, my career, my school plans, and being with someone that GOD is going to bless me with that will treat me way better!

It also helps, that I have been meeting new people lately and I’m more interested in getting to know them better.

(u waisting ur time with all that!)

I AM LOVED, this is all we’re saying. If it’s not worth it to remain in a relationship, it’s not worth it to meet without panties, or at least him knowing you’re not wearing panties. Either way it’s a lose lose situation for you because you’re hoping to have some effect (in any way) that very well may not happen. If he REALLY doesn’t care anymore nude, naked, commando, open crotch panties, granny panties, seamless panties, nothing will matter. If you’re looking hawt (fully clothed that is) and he doesn’t care, that won’t matter either. Go, look good….for you…because the break-up didn’t break you and if he cares he’ll just know he missed a good thing….regardless. Just don’t get yourself disappointed with preconceived notions of how he’s going to take you at this meeting or how he’ll preceive you while looking hawt. You know men, they ain’t like us. They’ll set their feelings aside and move on. You don’t want to set yourself back by self inflicting disappointments. Girl, hold your head up and keep it moving. If it’s meant to be, rekindle, happen again, work itself out, come to a mutual understanding, whatever, that will happen without anything physical as a boost.

@I am ~ nothing wrong with having feelings. We all got that! However, even if you’re comfortable going commando, but don’t go commando on a regular basis, why do it to meet him if not to simply entice him?

When the both of you stop playing the puppeteer will you be able to move on!

I guess I’m about a good size 10. I did buy a ralph lauren skirt last week from Belks, a size 8 but I think that’s cause (or I’ve been told) the more expensive the bigger it will run, the smaller size you’ll need cause rich folks like to believe they’re smaller than they really are…just something I’ve always heard. Anyway, when folks ask and I tell my size most don’t believe it. I think it’s how you wear what you wear.

LMAO!!! 1144a – Funniest ish all day. Nothing like calling it like you see it.

Lady J – I had gotten up to a size 16 and was telling myself that it was because I wasn’t a teenager anymore so I wasn’t supposed to have teenager’s body. When in reality, my ass just didn’t want to do the work that it takes to stay not only a reasonable size, but most important healthy. I can still remember when in 2007, I was heading to 16’s being too tight, one of my New Year’s Resolutions was to not buy another piece of clothing from Lane Bryant EVER. And I haven’t – at least not for myself.

Hi Leggs. when i read your post i was going to say something similar to Atltwen (but not quite). i was always under the impression men labeled you ‘fine’ from a purely physical sense (with little regard for personality). as i told my s/o … i want to be “beautiful” cuz i feel that includes who you ARE, not just how you look.

I need to feel this way right now so that I won’t feel sad.
