I am stunned when I hear women who don't get it. Men like good-looking, fit and toned women. So, if you want to have a lot of men to choose from or keep high sexual interest from your partner, then you work out and watch your diet and do your face and hair, etc. It's not a debate, it's the way to get what you want.

So then, the question at hand is does life imitate art or visa versa? I know its a chicken and egg question but lets examine it.

In other words are the images we see in the media there because this is what we are attracted to? Or are we attracted to these images because the media plants those ideas in out heads?

Here is my take. I think there are biological and genetic programming that is involved. There have been numerous research article published about round butts signifying fertility. As well as large breast signifying ability to nurse. etc etc, So there is a definite influence there.

Now before anyone jumps on me with this in regards to porn, no I am not looking at a porn because I have the desire to have a long meaningful relationship. But I am looking at some of these women because there is a natural gravitation towards them.

Tiptoeing this is a total first but I00% agree with you. The media tends to exploit biology and place unreal expectations out of proportion with reality

There is an old adage that says "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and I totally agree.
