A cold winter day calls for a barbecue with fried chicken breasts, legs, and buttocks! The interest for chicken might spark some similarities for men for the attraction towards women. A nice set of fried breasts and legs might sound cannibalistic, but every man has their own preference of joining the right club. A breast man, leg man, or butt man might all have their own opinions on women, but a recent study published online two years ago indicates that eye fixations will reveal the concealed identity of a man’s own personal preference towards women.

Argentinian men participated in a study to test if their attraction towards women relied upon breasts or buttocks. A series of three studies conducted by Bruno Dagnino, Joaquin Navajas and Mariano Sigman, authors of Eye Fixations Indicate Men’s Preference for Female Breasts or Buttocks, concluded very intriguing discoveries. According to the results, Argentinean men responded with a bimodal distribution with a preference towards buttocks. The men were voluntarily subjected to a series of questions about their personal preference on breasts, buttocks, or an equal attraction between the two.

Study 1 

A total of 184 self-reported heterosexual men participated in the first study with no previous experience in other studies focused on their own judgment for feminine attraction. The study primarily focused on the participant’s judgment towards breasts and buttocks as traits. The participants sat at a computer to use a program that would allow them to click on the leftmost point of a bar to verify their dependence on buttocks to make a woman attractive, or the rightmost point to determine their dependence for a women’s attraction from their breasts.  If a man felt as if a woman was equally attractive with both assets, a middle option was there to accommodate them.

Study 2

The collected sample size of 19 Argentinean male undergraduate and graduate students had a sample mean of 25.7 years old with a standard deviation of 4.2.  These men never participated in Study 1, but they were also self-reported heterosexual. This study was extremely intriguing for its experimental procedure. The male subjects were exposed to a total of 180 downloaded pornographic photographs from various adult websites on the Internet. As the studied revealed,

“Ninety images corresponded to the breasts of a standing woman seen from the front in underwear (breast images). The downloaded photographs were cropped to the minimal square window in which the breasts were visible. The nipples were not visible in any of the images used in this study. None of the pictures contained any portion of the face (the chin) or the belly button. Ninety images corresponded to a standing woman seen from behind in underwear (buttocks images). Images were cropped to the minimal square window in which the buttocks were fully visible, including the lower back and the upper portion of the legs” (Dagnino, Bruno, Joaquin Navajas, and Mariano Sigman).

These participants were asked to rate the images in separate blocks of trials, and the trials varied randomly across all participating men.  These men had flexibility in their decision with no pressure given to them to decide. The attractiveness of the images were rated on a scale from 0 to 10, and the answers were conducted by moving a mouse horizontally with vertical tick marks to confirm decision.

Study 3

A separate set of 25 self-reported heterosexual male participants around 25.6 years old, with a standard deviation of 2.9 years, never participated in any of the previous studies. These men were given the instructions to perform 40 trials that subjected them to view breast images and buttock images. The same images for Study 2 were also used for Study 3. The procedure was to ask the participants to indicate “whether they judged that a woman whose buttocks and breasts were those presented on the left was more or less attractive than a woman whose buttocks and breasts were those presented on the right” (Dagnino, Bruno, Joaquin Navajas, and Mariano Sigman). The decision for their preference required clicking the mouse in the way that would associate the location of the image. If the left (right) woman was more attractive, the left (right) button needed a click to confirm answer.

Personal note: 

If there is an interest to provide more information on the results, let me know. I found this study using Academic Search Premier. I can get access to it with my University of Connecticut login information. Yes, this is nothing you would find on the Internet for free. You are welcome. I’ve been busy today making 200 handcrafted tin switch plates for my cousin’s small business. So, this post was done in the last two hours. I am exhausted! So, if you find any grammatical errors, sorry!

Questions for the Guys: 

  1. Are you a breast man, leg man, or an ass man? 
  2. Would you feel comfortable to participate in any of these studies?

Questions for the Ladies: 

  1. Have you ever dated a breast man, leg man or an ass man? 
  2. What appeals more to men in your life? Which assets do you have?

Discovering Mr. Right; A Brief Analysis on Idealistic Male Traits

Ladies, Mr. Right does not have a fixed image, but he certainly does have idealistic male traits that will help filter through all the Mr. Wrong’s that throw corny one-liners. Do you think Mr. Right is Prince Charming? Possibly, your knight in shining armor is the same guy too?  Chivalry does not necessarily need a horse. If the man of your dreams lost his horse, maybe he will offer a piggyback ride instead?

How do we address the idealistic characteristics of men portrayed in Disney movies or romantic comedies? Are they all physical attributes, or do they have some key factors for emotional strengths? You might consider yourself far from being shallow, but physically appealing genetics are always a plus.

Let’s discuss the idealistic characteristics that we commonly hear when we mention Mr. Right or Prince Charming. We can check which ones are idealistic and emphasize on the ones that have more potential with realistic reasoning.

Wealth and Power 

Did you see his Porsche? Wait, he has a Lamborghini too? Ladies, you know Richie Rich when you see him! Do you really want a man to put a price tag on your love? Do you really want him to pay his way into your pants? That’s not a lover, that’s a business man with a politician’s mind. You want someone who is financially stable, not financially capable. Does he live to work or work to live? Hopefully, you can find someone who does both. You want someone who sets life ambitions with a head over his shoulders while being a hard-working partner gradually moving closer to accomplishing those goals. Is it really necessary to find someone who makes more money than he can even handle? Money will pay off the bills, but happiness is not guaranteed.

Intelligence

Instantly, you imagine yourself being with McLovin. Does that satisfy your desire for knowledge? Intelligence has a vast array of definitions for many cultures and regions of the world. The definition may have a consensus that intelligence is the general mental ability to learn and apply information. How do we decide if Mr. Right has the idealistic measure of intelligence? The main focus is not necessarily his background in education, but how he presents himself to you effectively. Yes, he may carry himself as an effective conversationalist and public speaker without a four-year degree. However, it solely depends on your personal preference.

Generally, you want a social butterfly that can express himself effectively, present himself respectably, especially around your parents, and someone who can understand you entirely. No, that does not necessarily mean he should know that you burp five times a day, but he should understand how to offer the emotional and physical connection that you desire to have with him. Does it tickle your insides when he throws big words out there? Unless you’re part of The Big Bang Theory’s cast, I highly doubt you will come close to feeling the same intellectual connection as Sheldon’s girlfriend, Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler.

Guys, be yourself when you deal with intelligence. Impress her with how that information has changed you, not how much you actually learned.

If you want an example, I have studied five languages in a classroom, including English. Do I brag about the awards I received? I will briefly mention them in my About Me, but I would rather emphasize on the UCAELI conversation partner volunteer experience I had with foreign exchange students. Pick your spotlight moments and reflect on them. Unless you have more time to converse with each other, keep it brief.

Emotionally Sensitive

You have seen these men before, but watch out for best friend potential! These are the ones to friend zone! Shopping? Totally. Romantic comedies? Fabulous. No, really, you want that guy who can put the ‘man’ in ‘mannequin’. Let him shop with you, hold your purchases and wait for you outside the fitting room. Ladies, yeah I am talking to the exhibitionist out there, we can save the fitting room invitation talk later. I will admit that I like your style – thinking outside the bedroom.

However, there might be some trust issues involved, and you might not want someone waiting outside the fitting room checking out everyone in line. Yeah, that is definitely a trust buster. How do you know if he is patiently waiting for you? Well, regardless, you want a man who can voice his opinions about how you look in your latest shopping frenzy but you avoid the ones who know more designers than you ever wore in your lifetime. If the dress makes him upset or brutally honest that he throws a fit, you might not want the dress or him anymore.

Romantic comedies really are great. Guys, if you cried to A Walk to Remember and you took down a lot of mental notes from The Notebook – you are already showing your idealistic qualities! Women want men who can balance sensitivity where they can distinctly categorize you between her best friend and her boyfriend. It is completely natural to have feelings for romantic comedies, and it can enhance your relationship when you follow the notes you wrote down from other movies. She does not want another sister, but a lover. Express yourself, but try to limit on how much you express with the most effective delivery. Write the articles for Cosmopolitan, while you leave your mother or sister’s copy alone!

The Family Guy

Yes, the man who does not run away from minor conflicts or the one who rarely has an issue with establishing and maintaining commitment. He does not make you or his family an option, but a priority.   Ladies, when someone asks you, “How many children do you have?” I hope you have two children, and only say two children. If you are in the same boat as my mother mentioning that she has “three.” That’s a problem! Guys, women want men who can understand that family is invaluable. You can always pick your friends, but you can never pick your family. If you are hesitant about children, that is completely fine. As long as you are close to your family, treating them with the utmost respect, even if some bang heads, you will be ideal. It shows more than family value, but strength in building and maintaining relationships.

Former Boy Scout of America?

Remember the Boy Scout Law is a compiled list of other qualities that require more emphasis with your girlfriend too. These are as follows:

What qualities suit your Mr. Right?
