Plus: porn addles male brains!
Why no post yesterday? I guess I just forgot.
Maybe because I had a couple of Sofias for lunch. Single-serving cans of carbonated blanc de blancs from the Coppola are cute, pink, emblazoned with vapid teenisms like “petulant” and “reactionary,” come with extendo-straws so you don’t muss your lipstick, and according to Texas law may be consumed only by underage girls (I get mine from a slutty neighbor kid). In spite of all that, I love these Sofias.
“But Twisty!” you protest, “carbonated wine in a cute pink can?” As a matter of fact, yes. The wine really doesn’t suck. And anyway, a spinster aunt can have facets.
Meanwhile, reader Henry sends along this link to an article about a study assessing the degree to which studly muthafuckas are affected by the sight of a hot babe en deshabille. The degree is—believe it or not—a high one, which finding has understandably sent absolute shock waves through the global studly-sexual-response community.
According to the study, so-called “high-testosterone” men, so determined by the length of their ring fingers (yeah, that’s not what I would have measured, either), go absolutely to pieces over two-dimensional images of women* capitulating to the sexbot mandate, to the extent that the aforementioned dudes will stop driving “hard bargains” and accept crummier deals when in the presence of porn. The same result obtains even when they have so much as handled a bra. When these same men view pictures of old women, surprise, they are not affected in the slightest.
On the other hand, “low-testosterone” men, who are identified, I suppose, by their comparatively larger brains, appear to retain their dignity even when exposed to “the effect of a well-turned ankle.”
Who funds these stupid studies? Is it not obvious to everyone that dudes only conduct asinine research like this as an excuse to get paid for looking at porn all day?
* Women are defined by the article as “sultry sirens” and are illustrated as a concept by a stock photo of a young blonde hottie in her underwear.
