The male attraction to the curvaceous and voluptuous female figure has been undeniable for centuries. The attraction goes much deeper than just the sexy look of the curvy female form; it appears to be in the makeup of the male genetic code. Science even seems to be able to back up this claim.
In a 2010 study conducted in Papua New Guinea, 100 men were shown pre and post-operative photos of women who had undergone cosmetic surgery for buttock augmentation, or Brazilian Butt Lift. Excess fat was liposuctioned from their waists and then injected into their buttocks and hips to enlarge and reshape the area and to create an hourglass figure – resulting in a lower waist-to-hip ratio. The men were asked to rate the attractiveness of the before and after photos with the post-operative photos consistently being chosen by the men as the most attractive and desirable. The group of men preferred the photos showing the women with curvier figures and a lower waist-to-hip ratio to the pre-operative photos where the ratio wasn’t as low and the buttocks and hips weren’t as full.
Science suggests that this trait of women having a small waist combined with large, round buttocks and full hips, along with the attraction to a woman’s breasts, is the most attractive female body type to men. This body type has been an indicator to men of a woman’s fertility and sustainability since the caveman era. A woman of reproductive age who possesses a smaller waist and larger buttocks and hips is thought to have better success at becoming pregnant, remaining active during pregnancy, and has a lesser risk of becoming ill while pregnant. All of which is necessary to ensure an abundance of healthy babies to carry on the family line.
So, the good news is that the current attraction to bigger butts is not just a passing fad of our times that will continue to expand and then deflate. Rather, a woman possessing a big butt and full hips has always appealed to men and has subconsciously been associated with fertility and activity during pregnancy in the male’s search for the ideal biological partner; and that instinctual desire can’t be changed.
