75877[evol-psych] Re: Women's bare flesh in winter 'a bigger turn-on for men'
- Oct 1, 2008I wasn't clear in my post. I meant to point out that the observer
(e.g., a young man looking at a photo, a person entering a coed dorm,
etc.) learns to evaluate the actor's intentions by examining the
context in which the action takes place.
Young women can be very naive about the effect of their scanty outfits
on young males....which leads to a lot of misunderstanding and chagrin
on both sides.
After a few embarrassing misassumptions, young men learn that a clear
signal indicating a heightened interest in a sexual encounter can only
be (somewhat) safely assumed if a young woman's brief clothing is
significantly more brief than the norm for a given situation/context.
