PARASITE CHEST HAIR THEORY



In a recently revealed study, scientists have failed to corroborate the so-called "ectoparasite avoidance theory" to help explain the evolution of human hairlessness.  The theory postulates that our ancient grandmothers preferred mates with hairless chests to avoid parasites.  The study presumed that women in warmer climates closer to the equator where the risk of ectoparasite infestation is greatest would prefer hairless men, while women in colder climates would indicate no such preference.  The study sampled women from two countries, Slovakia and Turkey, presupposing that women in warmer Turkey would prefer hairless men, while Slovakian women would not.  Presented with images of both hirsute and hairless men, the study found that both samples greatly preferred men with no chest hair at all.  Other studies confirm that hair preference varies country to country and even state to state, with California overwhelmingly preferring less hair.  My futile attempts at finding a hook-up in LA no doubt confirm this.  :-)  Finally a statistic to replace my self-pity!!!!

  2. I suspect this study is flawed-- probably badly flawed. Most likely, the women questioned were influenced by what we might call 'GQ culture'-- if the average woman were really that opposed to chest hair, it would have disappeared by now... or perhaps it's simply a very low priority on the list of traits in a potential mate.

  3. I love you and your blog, Colby, but enough with the "I can't get laid" stuff already. It's a recurrent theme in your blog and seems more than a little implausible. Just my two cents.

    (also, it might be a manner of speaking, at least in pornlandia)

  6. I wish I was hairy. I'm jealous of you Colby. And if you had driven through Oklahoma on your road trip, you would have gotten laid by this nice lean, sexy, 40-something.
