Sexy Women Make Men Feel Bad About Themselves
Sexy models like Brooklyn Decker can make women to feel bad about themselves when women feel like they don’t measure up.
Yep, that’s what research at the University of Missouri, Columbia says.
Why? Because these sexy women make men question their own lack of body tantalizingness. “Ahhh, she’d never go for me!”
Sexy women have a worse effect on men’s body image than seeing a handsome, fit man in an ad.
So it turns out that “sexy women” images negatively affect almost everyone.
I wonder if women can look at “hot” men without their own feeling of hotness being negatively affected? “I don’t think I’m hot enough to get him — and now I feel bad about myself.”
I’m guessing that women are less likely to respond negatively.
In fact, I’ll bet that women are more likely to feel inadequate compared to an image of a sexy woman than to a sexy man.
I’m wondering if other people think that is true? And if so, why?
