Windows to the Soul

In the spirit of love and passion and all those primitive traits that make humans tempting sexual creatures, comes my three-part series: Irresistible Body Parts.

In this three-week series, I’d like to discuss the parts of our bodies that make us so attractive to the opposite sex. Week Three: Eyes. (Note: For those keeping track, yes, I missed my mark of posting this last week, lol).

Our eyes, they are one of the most expressive parts of bodies, they can convey happiness, warmth, love, anger, loss, and despair.

Have you ever flipped through a novel and read about a particular seductress who makes men melt with her gaze? Or, have you heard women talking about a guy whose "bedroom eyes" are enough to make a girl weak in the knees? I think we all have. Maybe that's why in many ways this type of non-verbal communication is more powerful than spoken words.

Take women’s eyes for example. When a woman looks at a man in a certain way, she has his undivided attention, instantly. Over many decades studies have proven that men use the art of eye flirting a little differently, however. When a man looks at a woman's eyes he focuses (whether conscious or subconscious) on her pupils then in the white areas. If a woman's white areas are bright and her eyelashes are thick and long these are excellent indicators of good health. And women in good health have the best chances at reproducing and carrying healthy babies to term (this according to different sources). 

Now, seeing as the eyes pass so much information to the brain each and every second, let's take a look at some important eye mannerisms and what they say about us.

--Glaring eyes intimidate. In males it may immediately trigger fight or flight responses.

--Small constricted pupils indicate lack of interest.

--Lowering the eyes/eyelids indicate modesty and/or submission.

--Frequent blinking during conversation indicates high interest. Some females use a rapid flutter technique to get a man's attention.

--Hooded eyes indicate passion and perhaps sexual interest.

Well, there you have it folks, the conclusion of my three-part series, Irresistible Body Parts.

Stop by soon!

She's got LEGS, and she knows how to USE them :)

In the spirit of love and passion and all those primitive traits that make humans tempting sexual creatures, comes my three-part series: Irresistible Body Parts.

In this three-week series, I’d like to discuss the parts of our bodies that make us so attractive to the opposite sex. Week Two: Legs.

In past decades studies conducted into physical attraction already showed that taller people were generally perceived as being more appealing to the opposite sex, but until now little was known about the effect a person's leg length had on the overall attractiveness. And as it turns out men are not alone in finding the ‘leggier’ form more attractive. Women also consider longer-legged men more physically appealing.

Psychologists at the University of Wroclaw in Poland (in 2008) asked over 200 male and female volunteers to rank the attractiveness of men and women from a set of digitally altered images. The research revealed that people whose legs were 5% longer than average were considered most attractive, regardless of gender.

Scientists believe there are evolutionary reasons for the preference. "Long legs are a sign of [good] health," one researcher stated. And shorter legs have been linked to a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and obesity in both sexes.

So whether men and women are drawn to long legs for attractiveness or good health, the truth is the legs still have it, unlike a myth that predominantly ‘old fashioned’ men are into legs.

Now, for a fascinating look at leg etiquette and what you’re legs are saying about you check out this interesting article:
