Re: [evol-psych] Lordosis
- Some heterosexual men dispaly lordosis, too. I am thinking of those men who are known to "switch", during S& M i.e. are capable of adopting both dominant and submissive roles, with a compatible partner of the opposite sex, during erotic fore-play which includes the mutual infliction of pain.RegardsJim Buck----- Original Message -----From: Jay R.

Feierman: Do you have any (non x-rated) links to examples, as either stills or movements? I'm assuming the lordosis is when standing and when clothed, which is how it is displayed in heterosexual human females when they are displaying or more commonly in pin-up type art or photographs. It would not surprise me if you are correct, although I have never made that observation. What is the context of the lordosis in gay men? The other behaviors in the heterosexual human female proceptive repertoire that are used in courtship are the "feminine" mannerisms, which derive from both submissive and approach/avoidance motor patterns. They also are seen in a subset of gay men, where they are called "effeminate mannerisms." The effeminate mannerisms in a sub-set of gay men don't appear to be used in a proceptive courtship context alone, as they often "leak" and are present in a variety of non-courtship contexts.
