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:

Don’t forget to stop by next week folks!
