I came a cross this cool study on male attractiveness which shows VHI (volume height index) to be the best predictor of several measures studied (better than waist-to-hip ratio for example).

Problem is, they used scanning & Maya 3D modeling to the participants volume – not really that easy to check.

BUT, poor-man’s science to the rescue!

Nature has a poor-man’s fix for calculating VHI:

Just need to get the Mrs. in on this to measure the waterline ^_^

Another fun semi-random project for vacation!

Oh, and of importance is the line:

Body proportions associated with fitness will enhance male body attractiveness.

So if you want to be an even sexier beast…

Keep lifting!
