Yes Sciros,

I realized that you wouldn’t understand, I was more interested in other posters opinions.

Psychological attributions, say of what is sexy, trustworthy, etc can have a cultural and a learned component, such as the well known case of Rubenesque women at the time of Rubens. Certainly Suma is popular in Japan, and I have seen Japanese women being interviewed saying they thought some rather obese national Suma superstar was sexy. I would therefore like to see the study done in Japan, and indeed across all cultures, and see the results.
