Fri, 05/18/2012 - 14:06 Rossena Attractive women that unfortunately have small breasts

There are a significant amount of models, not just in the fashion industry, but in the nude/adult modelling industry that have smaller breasts. Thus, there must be a significant amount of men who find them attractive, and a significant amount of women who are comfortable with them. Kate Moss, although typically a fashion model, has also done topless work. I suspect that her bank balance is rather happy with the riches that her sweet A cups have yielded.

If some men aren't attracted to smaller breasts, that's fine. But to argue that they are universally less attractive is ridiculous, given the evidence to suggest otherwise.

I did not like this site the first time i got on it ,but after reading as much of it as i could i think i might like now.It is about white beauty,but it is not saying that other ethnic groups are ugly or not feminine.We all know that nonwhite people can be very attractive and there is nothing wrong with a site that shows how white women are feminine.
I really hope to see this site get viewed more and more by people.I also really hope to see more classy women and less nude models on it.

Erik i really kinda like your site but have to ask why do you worry about feminine beauty so much when most white people will not even exist in the near future? Other ethnic groups here in the west have no problem showing off there most feminine women and they will promote feminine beauty.So why worry about it when us white people wont even really be around to enjoy our own feminine beauty?I know this is kinda a strange question but if you could please give me your answer i would Appreciate it.

It would be fantastic if the creators of this site could stop pushing pseudoscience and clarify for the ignorant masses that these are their personal opinions and those of some of the guys they know. There are no statistics, there have been no surveys taken. While one would have to be blind not to see that high fashion models are alarmingly skinny, asking a man who he finds more attractive when one of the two options is naked... the results are fairly easy to guess. Its empirically observable that heterosexual men find naked women more appealing than not naked women.... wow what a novel concept.

Heidi obviously is very masculine. Her face has a very masculinized jaw and eyebrows. Her bone structure is also closer to a man's than a woman's. She has broad hip bones, broad ribcage, broad shoulders, short torso, and long arms. It's a very awful look. Her WHR is definitely above 0.7.

She is not modeling material, not even close. It is unfair to so many impressionable young girls that male-like women are being promoted as beautiful. Feminine women should be exalted, not masculine women.

Yes, I understand. What a disappointment! And you thought she should look like Raquel Welch. Tsk Tsk... Hmmm... I wonder why she looks primitive? Maybe because she IS PRIMITIVE? Personally, I think she looks kinda attractive, and I bet she can whip your butt (ha ha)...

Hey, I agree with the critical analysis of this site pretty much completely, but then again, I am the sorts attracted to something that isn't your marketing hollywood look. This is a video of a really attractive woman, toss in blue green eyes and make one other little tiny change for me God, and I could be contented that I have one of those perfect women. But, all that said, I'm just finding the comments here just totally entertaining, whether or not I agree with them is a different story.

Why do you say that she is not very feminine? she has all the attributes of female beauty:

* Narrower facial shape
* Less fat
* Fuller lips
* Slightly bigger distance of eyes
* Darker, narrower eye brows
* longer lashes
* Higher cheek bones
* Narrower nose
* No eye rings
* Thinner lids
* Large natural breasts
Height: 173 cm
Measurements: 35 - 23 - 34 in. (89 - 58 - 86 cm): ratio waist / hip ratio = 0.67
I do not know her BMI and weight, but clearly his figure is very sexy. She is slender, without a extreme level of thinness but also without any fat.

Tue, 05/08/2012 - 02:20 AlekNovy Stephanie Naumoska: thinness not enough for high-fashion modeling

At 19, most girls are super-skinny here. Not as skinny as her, but maybe one in 20 girls her age looks like her. They get fat in their late 20s, but in general girls are quite skinny here when they're 19.

Sun, 05/06/2012 - 20:06 A Gal Welcome!

In general I find the concept of this interesting, but the tone I felt was lacking. There is a difference between facts and the general opinion of people and that was not clarified well. Not even by the author. Being feminine and beautiful are two different things. Feminine is genetic and factual; these are the most female traits. Beauty, while also genetic, is also interpretive; that means that society and pop culture will affect what people think and it is always an opinion. The was not a clear distinction between academic and opinion biased "feminine beauty".

Are you serious? It's obvious by your choice of pictures of women you used to compare her, that you like chunky women. As a fashion photographer I can say that I would prefer Heidi over any of the other girls any time day or night. Not only is she beautiful, but she is an amazing model. The problem with people like you is that you think with the head bellow your waist too much. It takes more than just physical beauty to be a great model. Not even pretty girl can be a top model. I've worked with many beautiful women that cracked under the pressure in the middle of a shoot. Modeling is more than just skin deep, even though ignorant people like you can't see past the skin surface.

Fri, 05/04/2012 - 15:21 Ophis Satoshi Kanazawa on the physical attractiveness of blacks

I stumbled upon this site while I was searching for pictures of high fashion models for my artwork and then stumbled upon this article. The title made me first want to gag but I decided to read it with an open mind. First of all I cannot comprehend at all what positive outcome Kanazawa wanted to achieve if any. Or it was all done for the love of science and research. All the backlash he got is well deserved. He was playing with fire.

I also skimmed through the article: "Objective correlates of beauty" which I found way more interesting and disturbing than this one. So my comment here also focuses on that article and as well as this one. I am not a scientist so don't criticize my non-scientific terms or explanations that I want to comment on. But of course you can criticize my comment itself. It's quite long, but your article is also long, so bear with me.

1. The main criticism that I have is how you group or define what is considered to be beautiful. I have no objection to the fact that black people are perceived as less beautiful overall. The objection is what is perceived as beautiful. You have an extremely linear or polarized view of beauty. It seems to be an either this or that, less this and more that. Like a line at one end being a white European woman and the other end a black sub-saharan woman. All perceived beautiful women pull towards one end - the European face. The closer that a face seems to pull towards a European look the more attractive a woman is perceived to be. The more a face pulls away the less attractive it is. All I ask is can anyone be absolutely positive, without any doubt or hesitation that the pull of beauty is towards a European facial frame?

You site many examples, especially about how African and African-American women prefer lighter skin. You mentioned Hale Berry's mixed race features, how Tyra Banks and Beyonce got nose jobs to "lessen" their African features, to make themselves "more" European. This would seem to indicate that people prefer the white, European look. I have another theory and it is not so far-fetched.

Where I come from and live(sub-saharan Africa) light-skinned people are preferred. These are people of mixed race. One white parent, one black parent (or grandparents or even just having white blood in their line and it showing visibly in their physical features). People here like women with curly hair, not straight like European and not heavy and tight like African. They like a nose that's broad but soft - not straight like European and not heavy like African. They like the caramel skin - not white like European and not dark like African. From what I see it all centers on the mix of the two, having a combination of features like European and like African (or neither European and neither African). So to me it seems the center, the pull of beauty is not towards a European face and away from an African face but rather the center is something else. So I challenge you to think about a less linear model where white is on one side and black on the other and everyone in-between. To me it's like a triangle or other regular polygon. Where white European is an extreme look, black African and Aboriginals are extreme looks. These are at the points of the polygon. The more beautiful faces pull towards the center of the polygon. Faces that derive the most appealing features of the extreme groups or ethnicities of humans.

I know this may seem like some sort of diplomatic solution. But it's not. The most beautiful women in the world come from Latin American countries, the middle East and the lighter toned Indian women. It's not the extremely pale northern Europeans and (as Kanazawa and your studies have shown) it certainly isn't the black African woman.

2. This next point is simply food-for-thought and you don't have to discuss this only think about it:
Another issue is these terms that are used to describe African faces - ancestral or such. This seems to be a reference towards the evolutionary beliefs that humans descended from some ancient primate. Ok, fine this is a purely personal belief of yours since I have my own personal beliefs about that. The point is that if this is the basis of your beliefs then your studies about how beautiful people pull away from looking like primates and are closest to the farthest end (i.e. European) make sense. On the other hand, if humans did not descend from primates then having features that resemble such is just one extreme in the variation possible among humans and having features that are European another extreme. And again, I would say that the most beautiful people would then pull towards a different center - a middle Eastern face, colour, nose and hair-type.

3. Describing beautiful people and not beautiful people in an article that also contrasts intelligence is in extremely poor taste. And always referring to the white European as more intelligent or the light-skinned people as more intelligent is just wrong. Living in a jungle, or hunting and gathering, speaking a difficult dialect and having dark skin does not make one less intelligent. I can't even speak about this any further. It's just sickening.


I hope your studies and Mr Kanazawa's will eventually produce some good, although I sincerely doubt it. Having studies that focus on race and beauty will always be riddled with controversy because of the intense negative racial relations in many parts of the world. It's just not possible to get clear opinions from people with a history of prejudice in their cultures. It may seem that participants and interviewers in such studies may have limited or no bias but there is no way of ever really knowing.

Thu, 05/03/2012 - 04:57 Staci What form of women’s body shape was preferred in medieval Europe?

could you ever write about Kate Upton? I wonder if you think she is beautiful or not. Evaluate her facial features and body!!

Thu, 05/03/2012 - 04:52 Fran What form of women’s body shape was preferred in medieval Europe?

Hi friend, What do think about WILLA HOLLAND, is she feminine? she looks gorgeous to me.

Another question, I would like to know if a woman's femininity is always associated with beauty and masculinity means ugliness.

Thank you very much, my best regards.

Wed, 05/02/2012 - 23:13 GiGi What form of women’s body shape was preferred in medieval Europe?

Beauty is the burden of the spirit, some long to possess it and those who do have it in abundance take it for granted use it to position themselves higher in society. It's hard to look past because we're human, trapped in a body that we did not choose, forced to struggle between the instincts of our animalistic selves and the true being we are inside. Thin is beautiful, fat is beautiful, the argument will never end until science begins to genetically alter us to maximize the potential of the human body. We don't take beauty with us when we go, it doesn't even last till the end of our life here on earth yet it seems to be the most wanted thing in our society. It's our need to procreate and push the human race along (sex) that drives our small human minds and makes us want the beauty that gives us the option to choose the best mate to do so. Subconsciously that's what brought me to this site, attempting to validate my own beauty through Rubens paintings, the hope that my beauty is valued, or at least was at some point in time. I'm not going to argue that fat is beautiful, some feel that way but i know that most do not, especially as an apple shape. But that is the body my soul has been given and in the end it wont matter. For now i'll continue to struggle between the needs of my human body, the fight against it to obtain the beauty that society values, and my inner self that longs for unity between my body and soul.

Wed, 05/02/2012 - 11:35 Woodward Feminization and masculinization in the looks of men

I think the most genetically gifted are Mulattos or (half black, half white) because they have the full muscle thickness most usually from some sort of alpinic european descent and the "cut-ness" or muscle seperation from their black side. The reigning Mr Olympia is mulatto 5'9, 250lbs Phil Heath @ 2% bf. He looks like afro-germanic with a predominately alpine body structure....

Mon, 04/30/2012 - 16:50 R Satoshi Kanazawa on the physical attractiveness of blacks

Having read this article and especially the comments from Pilot, just made me decides to write something on this matter. This so called academic who Japanese of course is big fool to say the least. There are plenty good looking Black women out there who looks can hold their with any other race on this planet.
I do personally that him and many others like him are envious because how many Black females will want to take him?
One think for sure, Asians in general have this inferior complex about themselves which is a well no fact.
Another point I have to make, why is it Pilot!,that adult magazines as `Black Tails' and many other Black adult periodicals, the readership are in the majority which are White men interested?.....They certainly know something you refused to acknowledge.

And that story was featured in the Playboy's channel programme`Sexcertera' many years ago. As for Black men desiring white females? me a favor! goes both ways. Take George Lucas, Clint Eastwood, David Bowie, Robert de Niro also Iggy pop.
White women, find black men interesting because the culture that were created over decades, so do bother come with that crap OK!
You may try that IQ rubbish with uneducated fools, but that will not wash. The problem with the Europeans, they cannot even bring themselves to accept what black civilization has done for humankind like ancient Egypt,the moors who educated and ruled southern parts of Europe many centuries ago, algebra,astronomy, technologies that old families of the west do know about while not forgetting to major inventions such as the laptop/notebook computer for IBM back in the 1970's early 1980's and to round it up, a black British man who came out with a prototype 3D television. It took SONY to grab his services.

The final point is,the Europeans is the youngest race on this planet after Blacks,far east Asians /subcontinent Asians that have caused the most trouble. Why so?
My message to you, go and research REAL black history and you will be enlighten if you dare instead of being a closed mind.

I rest my case.

Beautiful black women below....

Thu, 04/26/2012 - 15:12 Alison The face of a Neanderthal woman

I'm no anthropologist, but as far as I've read, and in the Bio Anth class that I took, Neanderthals had genes for red hair and fair skin. As far as the lack of sexual dimorphism, I think that's up for debate. As with many early species of Homosapiens, the sex of a specimen is often unknown. It certainly could account for some of the wide morphological variation in Neanderthals, if there was a wide sexual diffference that is simply not recognized as such in Neanderthals.

Wed, 04/25/2012 - 21:19 Pilot Satoshi Kanazawa on the physical attractiveness of blacks

"This so-called study", Jim? The hatred is practically dripping from your post, which contains not a single reference to the research material brought up in the study. Poor guy, no arguments. You are either a leftist or a racialist non-White, explaining why you argue completely without facts.

As for the "so-called study", it shows clearly that Whites and Asians are considered more attractive than Blacks, by all. Anyone not lying, like you, knows that Germanic Whites are considered by far the most attractive people in the world. Blacks drool over White women constantly. 90 percent of all interracial rape in the U.S., is Black men raping White women according to FBI statistics. Blacks with their higher testosterone and lower IQ show in both criminal behavior and their constant hitting on White women - and calling them "racist" as soon as they don't respond as the Black hoped - that they desire White women far more than Black women. And yet your hatred and denial here. For shame, Jimmy.

Look at this picture of a White woman and a Black woman lacking White blood:

Are you seriously going to pretend that the typically Negroid features clearly on display in this picture are as attractive as the typically White features? In that case you are a liar. But we knew that already.

Tue, 04/24/2012 - 08:07 butterfly Waist-to-hip ratio and attractiveness in women: addressing confounds

The examples with the pictures:I think that its underestamated what clothes or in this case lingery can do to a body. If you look closely you will see that the lingery models are wairing lingery that is mostly marketet towards older women or women that are bigger in size i see some plusmodels in there also that indicates that its marketed towards bigger sizes. This type of lingery are hiding there curves. The lingery models are also older they look around the age of late 30's. The glamour models look around 18 years.

Sun, 04/15/2012 - 23:56 my name is... Part of a revamp of the attractive women section

"those aisians dont have fine featured faces; their cheeks are chubby and mostly fat. that's not fine featured and its robust and chunky, clumsy looking."

Asians generally have a thin layer of fat just under their facial skin. This thin layer will pad the facial skin, making it less prone to wrinkling.

The majority of people across cultures love "Baby-face". Even in White culture, females with baby-face are preferred. In human sexual selection, youthful and shorter women are favored.

And that's why White women, in general, especially the Nordics, form wrinkles by the time they reach 25-30. Typically, their expiration date is at 30. By then they start looking 10-15 years older, not only the skin age fast but also the facial and body bone structures changed drastically, you almost cannot recognize it's the woman you had a crush on 10 years ago. Very many get fat passed 25.
Short term beauty.

While so many Asian women look like at 20's in their 30's, at 30's in their 40's. Youthfulness, beauty and grace still intact. And most do not get chunky.
Long term beauty.

Ever heard the popular opinion "good-looking people who age slow have really good genes".

Youthfulness and vitality is a mark of superior gene.
