I find a lot of stories about seemingly bizarre and/or pointless research conducted by scientists.  And rather than fill the board up with links to them, I thought I’d make another of my category threads and just dump them all here.

Anyway, the first up:
Women with size-five feet are the most attractive to men.  So sayeth science anyway.

I can most definitely say that I am not one these men.  Not because I don’t find size-five feet attractive, but because I don’t really find any feet attractive.  As far as I’m concerned all feet, regardless of size, are unattractive, clunky, and utilitarian appendages and unless a woman has hooves I don’t factor her feet in when I consider how attractive she is.

The formula for a perfect woman’s foot is a size five, wearing three inch heels and red toe nail varnish, according to the study.

Research by foot plaster company Compeed revealed nearly half of men will look at a woman’s feet on a first date and a third will make a character judgement based on the state of them.

Why?

DM,you do have original posts excaim  It appears many men have a foot fetish;that’s not too suprising. I’m not sure how big or small a size 5 is,but hopefully it doesn’t lead to a rash of podiactric plastic surgery. I can appreciate a woman with attractive feet,however not at the expense of any other body part.

I can see that.  I know country music makes me want to kill myself.  Or at the very least, stab myself in the ears.

And yeah, anyone can play.

What can 2,914 Australian twins tell us about the evolution of the female orgasm?  Apparently that “Female Orgasm Rates are Largely Independent of Other Traits”.  Yay?

Also, our belly buttons are home to hundreds of undiscovered species.  Just thought you’d like to know that.

Have I ever met a woman with an orgasmic personality?  hm..let me think. No, only men, according to their tall tales.

Also, our belly buttons are home to hundreds of undiscovered species.  Just thought you’d like to know that.

New title for a movie, ” Little Belly Button of horrors”, “feed me, feed me”!!

p.s. look at the belly button of “axegrll’s” avatar.

OK, I’ll make a hypothesis:  Feet larger than size five are correlated with masculinity, and as such, not as attractive to most males.  Feet smaller than size five are correlated with immaturity and also not as attractive to most males.

Of course, foot size of an adult woman doesn’t really correlate with these, but it seems possible that males would subconsciously see a connection.

I don’t think it’s clear from the article if it’s the size five feet that men find attractive or it happens so that the women whom we find the most attractive have size five feet. Judging by the title of the article, Women with size five feet are most attractive to men, the feet size simply correlates with our preference in women. I don’t find that surprising at all.

“Although orgasm rates showed high variance across women and substantial heritability, they were largely phenotypically and genetically independent of other important traits.”
Yay caramba!
And I thought it had to do with whether you were doing it right.

BTW, the size five is the U.K. size five. It is equivalent to 7.5 in the U.S.

Ah, that helps, I kept thinking that was tiny, although not yet ready for the feet-binding ritual to keep those toezies nice and small and sexy
