Scientists made some sexy evaluations when they determined the sexiest and least sexiest parts of the human body to both sexy sexes. The Daily Mail brings the above graphic and the report. Sorry, Tarantino, but the feet are apparently the least sexy zones. Here’s how the rest of the sexiest body parts rank:
A woman’s mouth and lips was voted the most erotic body part with the highest rating of 7.9 out of 10.
The nape of neck scored 7.5 out 10.
Nipples and breasts came in joint third with a rating of 7.3.
Bottoms came fourth with 4.5 out of 10.
Hips scored 3.5 and feet received a rating of just one out of 10.
The mouth and lips received the highest rating of seven out of 10.
A man’s inner thigh received a rating of 5.8 out of 10.
The nape of the neck scored 5.6.
Nipples received 4.8 out of 10.
The lower back was rated as the fifth most erotic body part on a man with 2.8 out of 10.
While the least erotic part of a man’s body was the forearm with a score of one out of 10.
Okay, whaaaaaat? Who else is surprised that the nape of the neck was rated sexier than boobs? And who else thinks that dude’s forearms are incredibly sexy? And most important of all, why weren’t the dent things on a dude’s lower abs not taken into account?
Here’s how I would rate this:
NY Fashion week is happening right now.
Certainly the way a woman dresses is noticed by men — if only perhaps subtly. Now, for the most part (exceptions exist), if one of my male friends ever said to me “OMG is that Phillip Lim*?” I would fall over and die.
So, while maybe they’re not experts, I know that men notice how women dress. They have eyes. And what we chose to wear is a central signifier for our tastes and identities.
The thing about high fashion is that it’s often a lot more about fantasy for me. (I can’t afford it, can you?) In many ways too, it’s more about art and self-expression than attracting men. They’re tied, though, is what I’m saying.
Signifiers aside, I do love the shows. Click to see them, too.
*I own a whopping two pieces of Phillip Lim. Both covetously bought on sale at Jumelle.
Your weekly dose of WTF?!-worthy news…
*Prince William and Kate Middleton are engaged! Their first interview as royals-to-be reveals the details of their courtship. Met at college? Were platonic pals for over a year before dating? Lived together with a group of friends before officially hooking up? Broke up for a bit, in order to figure out who they were and what they wanted? William tried to cook elaborate meals for Kate (and failed)? Fell in love because they were able to have many “a good giggle” together? Announced the engagement via Facebook? Sounds like a post-dating romance to us! Now, if one more person calls her Waity Katie… (Sky News)
*Looks like men who do housework – and have wives who work similar hours to them – are happier. Gender roles in marriage are shifting (duh!). Woohoo, equality. So, who’s going to take out the trash today? (Salon)
*Ryan Reynolds was just named People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” – and his wife Scarlett Johansson recently earned the title of GQ‘s “Babe of the Year.” What were we saying about needing role models…? (People; GQ)
*Guys, in case you weren’t already feeling insecure about your manliness – you’re evolutionarily falling behind your ancestors! Start doing some pull-ups and improving your rap game stat. (Manthropology)
*Those revolutionary Millennials, and their willingness to forego doormen and in-building gyms to follow their artistic dreams in New York City. What crazy idea will they think of next?? (The New York Times)

It started as a joke. A few of my dearest best friends thought it would be funny to get me some novels for my fifteenth birthday. I was presented with a selection of four extremely hot historical pirate romance novels (Sabrina Jefferies’ The Pirate Lord, Gaelen Foley’s The Pirate Prince, Johanna Lindsey’s A Pirate’s Love,-though I prefer Gentle Rogue- and Virginia Henley’s The Pirate and the Pagan) complete with the giggles and jokes that naturally accompany explicit sex scenes. I had already been a huge fan of Young Adult historical love stories (and even Becky read my favorite trilogy – Jean Ferris’ American Dreams) but this, THIS was amazing. My collection quickly expanded from those four to the over five hundred or so historical romance novels that I have today. My four or five book a week habit can get expensive, but it is nearly as vital to my existence as food. Thank goodness I like to re-read.
Naturally, you think I must be a lonely, sex starved woman with only my cats for company. You. Are. Wrong.
