Twiggy No Thanks

Nunyaa raised the question a few weeks ago and James also asked for input.

Sixty thousand sex obsessesed males discerning readers of FHM have voted and the verdict suggests that men prefer women more full in size than women themselves perceive that men would like.
Professor Marika Tiggemann from Flinders University said that the results supported academic research on the topic. "We find women want to be thinner than what men find attractive," she said. "Men's idea of what is 'thin' is larger than that of women. Unfortunately, a lot of people think being thin demonstrates being in control or being disciplined, while being fat is a sign you're weak."
Plenty other opinions in the article. Me I have no comment. I am married and my wife reads my blog from time to time. My interest is purely academic. I also only read those kinds of magazines for the articles.

I thought we all went by those BMI charts that scientists put out in deciding whether we were at a healthy weight or not.

Interesting to see what a reverse study would show.

Yes this is right at the essence of perception and reality.

Two out of those three, have big boobs, most men would like it . Aw I am just being a smart ass, call it what you will, some say vanity, but most of us do want to look good to the opposite sex and if you are considered fat, large, chubby, chunk, you are not afforded same respect as one smaller. Do your own research and have look how larger women/men are treated next time you in a shopping centre or shop.
