Long time no see…
It has been a while and I am so sorry but I have been catching up on my reading and ill with a bad cold that lasted 2 full weeks that kicked my behind.
Anyway, I found this article on the internet today and found it very interesting. I wanted to run it past you and see what you thought about it. It seems that the ad men have not seen it that is for sure because we still have the waifs modeling clothes.
My hubby and I have started to notice that some television programming have gotten the memo and one that stands out is The Hallmark Channel Movies for sure. We are so pleased to see that the use women and young ladies with meat on their bones. Real average size women. Bravo Hallmark Channel!!!
Let us here from you on the matter of this article…
The Real Reason Why You Can't Resist Her Curves
Wendy Walsh from “Ask Men: Become a better man”
“Curvy women hit men's brains like a drug.”
“It’s no secret that dudes prefer curvy women. Seen in paintings by historic masters and pined for in modern song lyrics, feminine curves top most men’s wish lists. Whether we’re talking bodacious boobs, bountiful booty or mouth-watering thighs, gentlemen prefer curvy women over fashionable waifs.
Now there’s some science to back up this craving. And, yes, I said craving. Researchers at Georgia Gwinnett College and the University of Texas at Austin say that curvy women hit men’s brains like a drug. Their study asked a group of men to look at photographs of women’s naked bodies before and after plastic surgery. None of the women lost weight. Instead their fat had been redistributed to other places. Some essentially gained weight to become more curvy after surgery. MRI scans of the observers’ brains when they looked at curvy women showed activity in the same reward centers activated by pleasurable drugs. The men were getting a kind of high from the experience.
Curves are the language everyone understands
Anthropologists have long known about the virtues of curves. Countless cross-cultural studies have shown that men prefer a low hip-to-waist ratio, no matter the body weight. In other words, small waists in relation to larger hips and breasts seem to be the ideal worldwide. Yes, 36-24-36 is a brick house in any language.
Everything in anthropology boils down to answering the question of why a particular trait was selected in evolution for reproductive success. Anthropologists speculate that curvy women signal health, reproductive fitness and youth. Ask any woman in menopause what body part is first to announce the closing of her baby factory, and she’s likely to say, “My expanding middle.” Women past child-bearing age tend to become less curvy.
Now let’s talk breasts. There are all kinds of theories as to why human females developed large frontal mammary glands. Some anthropologists say they grew as a kind of frontal derriere when we evolved from moving on all fours to walking upright. When our closest primate cousin, the chimpanzee, is ready to mate, she sports bright red lips on her back end. When we began walking on two feet, our upright hips closed the curtain on that show. Some scholars speculate that breasts grew to create a new show up front. Of course, that theory doesn’t explain why so many women in parts of the world didn’t grow breasts as large.
Another anthropologist speculates that large breasts that succumb to the gravity sag are also a telltale sign that women have reached a certain age and reproductive chances are waning. Of course, if this is true, the foundation garments of modern times and plastic surgery have disabled this signal. Today, men can easily be tricked by a good push-up bra.
One other researcher suggests that curvy women are smarter and make smarter babies. Steven Gaulin from the University of California at Santa Barbara says that guys who choose women with chubby booties and thighs have a reproductive advantage. He believes that women’s hips and thighs contain omega-3 fatty acids, which help nurture both mothers’ and babies’ brains during pregnancy. Yep. This dude thinks curvy women make smarter babies. Just sayin’.
Curves: Not for every guy
But it would be unfair to make a sweeping generalization that all men like large breasts and hips. In fact, many don’t. One study looked at the personality traits of men who prefer curvy babes, and guess what? They tend to date a lot, engage in masculine activities and read mostly sports magazines. Clearly these dudes are looking to produce a Nobel Prize-winning baby.
The men in the study who preferred smaller breasts and hips tended to make more money and be of a higher social class. The researchers speculate that these men are more susceptible to the influences of fashion.
So who’s right? Everyone. Most men prefer curvy a woman for her reproductive potential, and those men also tend to practice reproduction a lot. Others prefer the time-honored method of survival of the fittest by bowing to social customs and climbing society’s ladder to a feast of resources.”
It all really comes down to what makes you feel most comfortable and who your heart falls in love with. You can say it doesn’t matter but our eyes fall in love first but as soon as that person opens their mouth and nothing but bullshit falls out well you got your answer. I guess it goes the same for a guy? I hope in the long run at least. But, some tend to think with their little head instead of the larger one. That is where the trouble comes in. I really don’t think they go around thinking, “Wow this woman looks like a baby maker I’ll pick her.” However I do think that some are more invested in the appearance of what a woman can bring to their standing in the community or circles for which they live. Especially, if they are climbing up that corp. ladder. I do agree however that as we start to get older that gravity starts to diminish our curves so that we no longer have them like we use to that we start going south with our skin which is not right for a woman if I do say so myself. We carry the babies, go through labor, and menstrual periods this should not happen to us too. But, it does and it just a fact we have to live with. The only thing we have going with this whole thing is the men our age are losing their eye sight and it won’t make much of a difference to them in the long run. Now if you plan on being a cougar well more power to you sister. As for me I can’t imagine showing this highway road map that my body has turned into, God Forbid, should anything happen to my hubby. Anymore a guy just never knows what he’s getting anyway young or old. You see with all the plastic surgery yes he could be getting the skinniest thing on the planet but her boobs could be fake as well as her nose so now they have this child that is just not looking right and he is just not understanding it. Or he could be getting this larger gal with the prettiest face ever, huge breast, tall and young looking. But come to find out after dating for a few months that well the only thing real is that she is tall & large. Well you see where this can go. We all have issues and we all have hurdles to jump over to make it in the world but in the end we all put our pants on the same way. When I see the picture above I think we are a combination of both whether we are thin or overweight. So, no one is better than the other. We are all just women trying to make it in the world of instant gratification.
