The New York Times recently featured a study of 6,000 Australian women that revealed significant weight gain after marrying or even moving in with a significant other. Keeping our waistlines while cohabiting in domestic bliss comes down to being vigilant with how we eat. And, perhaps we could all aim to be a little sportier with our significant others. Go bike riding, take up a class at the gym, train for a marathon, play kickball or the Wii, even. Or if you really aren't the sweat-in-public type, at the very least you could aim to have more athletic sex.
Five-thousand members on BeautifulPeople.com woke up one morning to find their accounts were inactivated due to their holiday weight gain. We registered on the site to see if the members are really as stunning as the site claims they are. The results were surprising.
It shouldn't come as a surprise that a woman's body image is linked to her sexual habits. But a new study done at the University of Pittsburgh among teenage girls offers some eye-opening figures as to how the woman in the mirror affects your sex life.
Poll: Dating In The Dark: Do Looks Really Matter?: Very. Great conversation is important, but if a person's unattractive it's a dead-end street. Just being honest! Somewhat. A good personality can make a so-so looker seem super attractive. Still, I probably wouldn't go for Quasimodo. Not at all. If we have conversational chemistry it doesn't matter what the exterior is like. Looks fade anyway!
According to a science report (we picked it up from the crazy sombitches at Asylum), people who feel pressured to be attractive are more likely to fear rejection. While it probably doesn't take the University of Buffalo (or the University of Kent, for that matter) to tell us that people hung up on their looks place a lot of stock in what other people think about their appearance, the study does have some other interesting finds.
Poll: Have I Put On Weight?: A resounding NO – even if it’s not entirely true! The truth. Go ahead, I can take it There just isn’t a right answer to this one. It’s a lose-lose situation.
Depressing: a study of 2,000 men in Britain found 16% think their wives could use a little nip and tuck, while 6% would like to see a "complete overhaul." Till her refusal of plastic surgery do us part, I guess? A third of men said plastic surgery would spruce up their sex life (um, have you actully felt a fake boob?) and a fifth said plastic surgery could actually save their marriage. Oh, please. Just divorce right now. Here, use my lawyer.
A study out of the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, suggests a woman's beauty is a gift from both of her good-looking parents, but a man's facial attractiveness is harder to place. Attractive fathers do not necessarily have attractive sons -- and you can't look to a man's mother to find out if he'll still be eye candy in old age, either.
