And I thought I had it made in luxury, eCommerce, and online communities. This study is a riot. Apparently finding the male volunteers was the most difficult part of their research.
One of my favorite quotes from an accompanying article on the topic:
“Curiously, faster bending and twisting movements of the right knee also seemed to catch the eyes of women. As a potential explanation, the researchers noted that 80 percent of all people are right-footed, so most people “are putting their weight on their left leg and using that leg as an anchor while the right can do more fancy things,” Neave suggested. “It is a bit of an odd finding, so we need more studies to see if this feature is replicated.”‘
The world really is a magical place.
