Some scientists get to have so much fun and a couple of them have just published a paper that confirms the hypothesis that even congenitally blind men find physically attractive women, well… attractive.
To get an idea of the implications of this research we need to back up a little bit. There’s idea out there in academia that’s been gaining serious traction over the last couple of decades.
It’s called social constructivism and its proponents argue that there is no universal metric of beauty.
Basically they believe that the human mind is a blank slate at birth and what we find attractive as adults is simply a product of cultural indoctrination. In a nutshell: the reason you find a slim, but curvaceous woman like say Brooke, hot is NOT because there is something inherently sexy about her, but because you’ve been ‘trained’, by the media and cultural environment you grew up in, to believe that she represents what your particular culture deems attractive.
What do you think? I call bullshit. Sorry social constructivists, but when the reaction most men have when looking at an – excuse the technical term – slammin’ booty on a fit woman strikes me as something much more primal than simple media suggestion. But, to be fair, these people are serious academics; PhD’s, professors and prolific writers. So I thought I’d see what other scientists thought about the idea.
Turns out that my intuition was correct: dozens of studies published in well respected journals have found mountains of evidence that there are, in fact, certain physical traits that all men, irregardless of culture, find attractive.
The most research in this area has been done on something called the waist-to-hip-ratio(WHR). The WHR is calculated by simply dividing the measurements of a woman’s waist by her hips….
