Sexual Attractiveness?

Watching this show about sex on CTV...

They say (among other things) that men instinctively are attracted to women with a waist-to-hip ratio of .7 (an indication of health and fertility).

So, of course I had to measure mine


Waist measurement divided by hip measurement = .72

I guess I have childbearing hips

I'll only love you back if you have a .9 waist-to-hip ratio, as men are supposed to

i have a smaller waist than i do hips
and the ratio is around .7

does that make me as desirable and fertile and healthy as a girl with the same measurements?

1) Measure your waist circumference.

2) Measure your hip circumference.

3) Waist divided by hip = the magical hitched with tonedeff ratio.

Re-measure by moving the tape around until you have numbers that make you end up with 0.70 for women, and 0.90 for men.

I just re-measured at 0.89... damn, I am one fine specimen of man-meat.

-- a two-metre length of rope

-- bottle of rye

Come get it anytime...

That ratio thing depends entirely on your geographical location.

I remember reading the only things they found to be universal was clear skin and physical symmetry. In other words, you don't look diseased.

Here's an interesting abstract... just remember that, as humans, we can-- and do-- override any evolutionary "instincts"...

Proc R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 1999 Jan 22;266(1415):211-8

Visual cues to female physical attractiveness.

Tovee MJ, Maisey DS, Emery JL, Cornelissen PL.

Evolutionary psychology suggests that a woman's sexual attractiveness is based on cues of health and reproductive potential. In recent years, research has focused on the ratio of the width of the waist to the width of the hips (the waist-to-hip ratio (WHR). A low WHR (i.e. a curvaceous body) is believed to correspond to the optimal fat distribution for high fertility, and so this shape should be highly attractive. In this paper we present evidence that weight scaled for height (the body mass index (BMI)) is the primary determinant of sexual attractiveness rather than WHR. BMI is also strongly linked to health and reproductive potential. Furthermore, we show how covariation of apparent BMI and WHR in previous studies led to the overestimation of the importance of WHR in the perception of female attractiveness. Finally, we show how visual cues, such as the perimeter-area ratio (PAR), can provide an accurate and reliable index of an individual's BMI and could be used by an observer to differentiate between potential partners.
