All men look at and process body shape.... specifically the ratio of hips to waist. This is an unconcious thing. The ideal ratio is that the waist is 7 tenths of the hips. So if a woman has a 28 inch waist, she should have 40 inch hips. It doesn't matter if the woman is skinny, medium or larged-framed... it's the ratio that's important. A bunch of men were survayed and shown pics of these women with different hip-waist ratios, and the ones who they all found most attractive were the ones that had 7 to 10 waist hip ratio. It didn't matter if they were overweight, normal weight, or underweight, but when shown three girls with 7 to 10 waist hip ratios, one from each size, they preferred the one of a normal weight. Ok, so why the big deal about 7 to 10 ratio? Apparently, women with this ratio are the best at carrying children. one tenth in either direction makes a difference in how well a woman carries her babies. Funny, all men do this, and they aren't even aware of it. Next time you see a woman with a hot body, look at her ratio and try to tell what it is... you'll be suprised! So yes, whether they admit it or not, there is ALWAYS lust before love.
There's an article that goes with the study if anyone doesn't believe. I am being lazy and don't feel like digging it out, but if someone really wants the name of it and the author, I will get it for you.
