Cosmo Wonders Why Men Are Attracted To Models
Cosmopolitan magazine recently fielded a few questions from the audience, and it became clear women aren’t sure why men are attracted to models.
One question that I found to be particularly entertaining regarded why men follow models on social media.
The question reads in part:
I’ve been with my boyfriend for around two years now. A thing we’ve argued a number of times about are his Instagram and Facebook searches. He used to follow all kinds of Instagram “models,” and I looked up his searches — lots of butt pages. I’m not proud but I needed to know. I’d brought it up, he agreed to unfollow them, but the searches have continued for over a year now. I am not an Instagram model. I couldn’t be an Instagram model. He just seems to search these girls every moment he isn’t with me.
To be clear I don’t read Cosmo. If you say the word around me the first thing that jumps into my mind is Jim Acosta getting owned for his cosmopolitan bias on national television. However, this article found its way to me through a coworker, and I figured I was legally required to answer the most obvious question in human history.
Men like attractive women. It’s pretty much as simple as that. There’s a reason why Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue sells so well – models have millions of followers, and the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is a television spectacle. Men like hot women in skimpy clothing.
How could somebody not understand the simplicity of this situation? Of course, the Cosmo writer rattled off some super long answer that made no sense. I solved this global mystery with a single sentence.
Here’s some more food for thought. The most attractive women on this planet aren’t famous. There’s nearly four billion women alive, and only a few dozen hot models and actresses are super famous. Don’t believe me? Feel free to show up to any given college football game at Wisconsin, USC, Florida, Alabama, Florida State or Arizona State, and you’ll know I’m right within a couple minutes. It’s worth contemplating before we elevate models to a mythical status.
