“I Like Big Butts”

Sir Mix-a-lot wailing in the corner…….the song got me thinking about what he was saying…..why is it that most men like  “junk in the trunk”?

Okay Ladies I am not a pig I promise…..I am just honest……

I am an old fart and he been girl watching for too many years to count….no I am not one of those pigs that whistles and yells out crap….but I do  enjoy watching the ladies glide by……(at least I admit it)…….

Why do we like those curves?

A new study finds that there’s an evolutionary reason men prefer women with a “theoretically optimal angle of lumbar curvature.” Another way of putting it? Even prehistoric guys probably liked a gal with a curvy backside. Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin ran a two-part study, published in Evolution and Human Behavior: In the first part, men rated the attractiveness of manipulated images of spinal curves; most best liked a 45.5-degree curve from back to buttocks. In the second part, men were shown pictures of women with different buttock sizes—and they still most preferred the ones whose spinal curvature was closest to the ideal, meaning it’s the lumbar curvature they like, not just “big butts,” researchers say in a press release. But “men may be directing their attention to the butt and obtaining information about women’s spines, even if they are unaware that that is what their minds are doing,” the lead researcher explains, per Medical Daily.

As for that evolutionary reason for the preference, researchers attribute it to “prehistoric influences.” Explains the lead researcher, “This spinal structure would have enabled pregnant women to balance their weight over the hips. These women would have been more effective at foraging during pregnancy and less likely to suffer spinal injuries. In turn, men who preferred these women would have had mates who were better able to provide for fetus and offspring, and who would have been able to carry out multiple pregnancies without injury.” Researchers note that this preference has evolved over thousands of years. “This adds to a growing body of evidence that beauty is not entirely arbitrary, or ‘in the eyes of the beholder,'” says a co-author, “but rather has a coherent adaptive logic.”

And there you have it!

Did that creep you out?  Well I can top that…….

You should enjoy having fun with people and you should not be afraid of contact.” Normally, a line like that in a help-wanted ad would raise red flags, but not so much in this case. A German social media company that specializes in the sex industry is looking for a brothel tester, reports Newsweek. The ideal applicant has a college degree, speaks more than one language, and has experience visiting brothels. The company—called Kaufmich, which roughly translates to “Buying me”—says the main point to rate safety and health standards and emphasizes that sex (and the ranking of sex workers) is “only a part of the job,” reports CNBC. For the record, both men and women can apply.

Ladies–I promise I will post something along these lines for you to enjoy……that is if I can find something that is not offensive……

  1. Oh dear God. It is dumb ass (pun intended) research like this that conservatives use to justify their attacks on reducing spending in scientific research. And it’s from a Texas institution of “higher learning” too. Sheesh!
