The beginning of something fascinating

Those naughty scientists are at it again. A recent study revealed that men exposed to bikini clad women "and other sexual stimuli" (like fondling bras) became impatient and greedy for immediate gratification—"even when they were making decisions about money, soda, and candy."

Evolutionarily speaking, Briers hypothesized, unfulfilled sexual arousal could trigger a subconscious belief that one's reproductive status is at stake. Rendered fearful, men reach out for other "resources" — a quick payoff, fast food — to better their chances for survival. In modern, more splurge-friendly times, this may be a maladaptive tendency....Taken together, all this research, she said "is the beginning of something fascinating."

So if I run around in a bikini, bake cookies, withhold sex and food and ask the man to take me on a trip to Tahiti all at the same time.....I might have a chance at a dream vacation??

A couple of weeks after the study came out in June, the "Mankini" hit the Milan fashion show. Hmmmm....
