Confer, Carin Perilloux and David M. Buss, Evolution and Human Behavior. Never mind those last 10 pounds.
To determine how men and women rank the relative importance of face versus body, the authors — Jaime C. Confer, a graduate student of psychology; Carin Perilloux, another graduate student; and David M. Buss, a professor of psychology at the University of Texas at Austin — showed heterosexual college students an image of a person with head and body covered up, and described the person as either a potential short- or long-term mate. Participants then had the option of looking at either the head or body, but not both.
Later, they were asked to rate how much more important the face or body was, depending on which they elected to reveal.
Women treated bodies and faces alike, independent of short- or long-term interest. Men, however, made a distinction between face and figure, depending on their intent.
Among male participants, 25 percent of those who were told to consider the person as a long-term partner chose to see the figure, compared with 51 percent who chose the body if they were looking at a potential short-term partner. The body, meanwhile, ifies fertility in the here and now. A young and comely pregnant woman, for example, would have a high reproductive value but zero current fertility potential — she is clearly already taken.
Evolutionary psychology theory holds that men value current fertility body more in a short-term mate and reproductive value face in the long term. But there may be more to a pretty face. Confer said.Searching for Germany curvy girl ltr
