Seeing Red

By Wyatt Earp | October 29, 2008

Maybe this is why so many unsuspecting men were taken-in by Communism?

If a woman wants to drive the men wild, she might want to dress in red.

Men rated a woman shown in photographs as more sexually attractive if she was wearing red clothing or if she was shown in an image framed by a red border rather than some other color, U.S. researchers said Tuesday.

Of course, though, there has to a primal reason for the scientific types, eh?

scientists have shown that certain male primates are especially attracted to females of their species displaying red. For example, female baboons and chimpanzees show red coloring when nearing ovulation, sending a sexual signal that the males apparently find irresistible.

(H/T: )

So, the reddish blouse I wore to work that received comments from the men-folk (yes, it happened) means the same as if I was sporting a red arse? I can imagine the runways, now…

Hey, I’m kind of glad I look good in red.

    Wyatt, you’re wearing red blouses to work in hopes of acquiring comments from the “men folk”??!!? Do I detect a change in your — ahem — social philosophy? Heh-heh. . .

    Me thinks RT is going to really have folks whispering around the water cooler. :D

    I’m also feeling rather conspicuous in my red feathers…

    I (RT) am writing posts for Wyatt until he is well enough to return. Glad you got a giggle, though. :)

    They aren’t already?

    And yet, I hate the song “Lady In Red.”
