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’m only relaying what’s been told to me on how some men view the word “FINE.” I was told the physical is a big component, but it embodies other traits overall.

Mqew, the day ain’t over, maybe she’ll change her outlook before the meeting.

Mr Lurker, you think I’m intelligent….thanks for the compliments. You know though, buying that size 8 I was hesistant but I wanted to sooo bad. It was originally priced at 156.00 on clearnace for 38.00 but came up for 25.00. Only had two left, sizes 14 and 8. I cannot stand any type of clothing too tight, too small or digging in my flesh. LOL It fits nicely but I better not overdo anything or it’s gonna be tight on my tummy.

Good Afternoon ppl,
Here’s my take on these words…

FINE = physical only… petite, short (5.0′ to 5′5″), very cute face, radiant smile, 105 lbs or less, NOT FAT nor SKINNY
SWEET = nice, pleasant personality… nothing to do with looks.

LadyJ – Working out is not my favorite thing either. Trust me. Three years later, I am quite honest with myself about that fact. But I do know how I felt when I was 40 pounds heavier. It was just harder to do everything.

One thing that helped me was letting go of my weekly hair appointment and my fascination with wearing my hair long and straight. Now that I work out frequently, I wear my ‘S-curl’ most of the time – unless there is a special occasion (or I wanna look ESpecially cute for some pictures or somthing.) LOL!

It’s one thing for people to tell you that but when you actually dress up a bit and tell yourself that, it means more.

I am luved??!!

going commando is just one way for u to express ur sexxiness….sounds good to me..

u meeting him today?? U can throw in a mixure there,maybe after work,so that sexxiness dont go to waste..

u might meet a hawt bro!

Well, MikeP ~ seems like I’ve been led astray. Don’t get me wrong, I always thought the word was attached to ones face and body so I took a very small survey (apparently), and was told on numerous occasions that that’s not necessarily true.

Also – I never did join a gym. I am fortunate to live in a neighborhood with sidewalks so that I could walk and eventually start running. And we have decent machines in my apartment’s fitness center.

But – I am going to take a water aerobics class with my sister and her bff for the month of March. It’s only going to be 20bucks.

And I will take Willie’s step class at MetroFitness from time to time. (That is a GOOD sweat!!!)
