Men, saysdoctorare
stting on their assets
SWANSEA,Wales (AP) -Mr. Muscle who struts along the beach flexing
biceps and kicking sand in Skinny Weakling's face is no longer Betty.
Bathing Beauty's ideal man, says an American psychologist who specializes
in studying love.
The traditional He-Man ideal glorified on everything from celluloid to
cereal boxes is a myth today, says Dr. Sally Beck, a professor at Butler
University in Indianapolis.
BECK CONDUCTED a study involving 115 female undergraduates
who were shown a series of male and female profile silhouettes. She hoped
to determine which kinds of physique carry the most attraction.
The results of the survey indicate women are most attracted by
men with small derrieres, Beck told 200 participants at the International
Conference on Love and Attraction here Wednesday.
"Gentlemen," she told male delegates, "you may be sitting on your
greatest asset."
Women most prefer a moderate-sized male with small buttocks, she
said, while "the Mr. Atlas physique is given only slight endorsement."
Her 1977 study supports previous research which indicated only one per
cent of women interviewed report sexual arousal when seeing muscular
chests, shoulders and arms, said the psychologist.
SHE WAS ONE of nearly a dozen persons who presented papers on
the second day of the four-day conference attended by scientists and
academics from Europe and North America.
"Large males are preferred by women who enjoy sports, physical
activity, and see themselves as less traditionally feminine," said Beck.
"Moderaste-sized males appeal to more traditionally feminine women who
have interests centered in the home. The small male is selected by re-
served women who come from higher backgrounds where thinness is
highly valued."
Women attracted to men with small bottoms and large chests have a
desire to achieve, especially academically, she added, while women who
prefer men with smaller chests and legs tend to be passive and indecisive.
Her study also indicated women admire other women who have small,
trim figures, while a similar study conducted on male undergraduates
indicates men are most attracted to women who have generous bust
sizes.

Flying kites on the Diag is fun, but the academic atmosphere calls for
scientific inquiry, don't you think? Ben Franklin would never have forgotten
the key element.
