So here's the deal: A group of male subjects were asked, at different times of the year, to rate photos of women. There were three kinds of pix: full body portraits of women in black swimsuits, exposed breasts of different sizes (???), and faces of young women. While there was no seasonal variation in the ratings for faces, probably because men see faces all year round, the researchers found that bodies and breasts were rated least attractive in the summer and most attractive in autumn and winter. Hear that? If you want to trap a man, don't wear a coat.It makes sense that in the summer — when it's hot and everyone is stripped down — the sight of a bare thigh is rather mundane. Whereas catching the glimpse of some uncovered knees in the winter is a bit more shocking. But do men really want women to be naked in the snow? (Oh. One million Google Image results say: Yes.) Also, couldn't these scientists have just watched the Clueless, in which Cher says: "Sometimes you have to show a little skin. This reminds boys of being naked, and then they think of sex." ? And isn't winter when we're all a little doughier and paler? Does this mean instead of covering up, ladies should strip down when the weather gets cold, and risk pneumonia to get laid? And why didn't the scientists test women, to find out in which season we find men more attractive? On the other hand, if you like my winter body, you're noble soul indeed.
