Looking For the Woman in the Red Dress?

So why was Neo distracted by the woman in the red dress? Was it because she was simply straight-up beautiful or was it because she was interested in sex? A paper in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology suggests that it is fact the latter, at least from the opinion of Neo.'Girl holding her hand up 2' by Mattox from stock.xchng

The research by the smart people at the University of Rochester who asked their collected sample of men a photo of a woman whose tee was altered to look either red or white, in a controlled manner, and whether the lady was “interested in sex” on a scale from one to nine (no ten?).

Whilst not a massive for and against, when presented in red the woman was rated, on average, one and a half points higher than her edited white tee wearing self. This one point five difference is hypothesised to represent the male’s evolutionary conditioning to partner the colour red with fertility. How on earth does that translate to when men choose red sports cars and motorcycles during their mid-life crises? I think it is best that question remains unanswered.


So there you have it: if you are female and want some action, wear red…

Street Fashion

I think I could look at street fashion for hours on end without so much as an inkling of boredom, but no picture or photograph blows my mind quite like this one:

On the Street… Brooklyn Boho, Brooklyn It is amazing how so much can be represented by a single picture of a smiling woman on the street. This could only mean one thing, I need to spend even more time on The Sartorialist.

Meeting People is Easy

When we look for a partner we want to find someone with the same interests and same goals and same outlook on life. I have, however, never heard of people wanting to find someone with the same diseases and infections to hook up with or spend the rest of their life with.

Enter STDFriends. A website that is as plain as its name: a dating site for people with STD/Is to find other people with STD/Is. You can ever search people by their afflictions and users own STD/Is are shown on their profiles just so everyone’s on the same page. Have a browse, you never know, you may need a website like this in the further (or maybe it is more of a case of ‘already’).
