Female body shape or female figure is the cumulative product of her skeletal structure and the quantity and distribution of muscle and fat on the body. There is a wide range of normality of female body shapes. Female figures are typically narrower at the waist than at the bust and hips.
In the current study, we investigated how the perception of half-nude female body representations is altered by framing with information about the presented person. Images from tabloid newspapers were presented to male and female observers, and rated according to their aesthetic appeal while neurofunctional correlates were assessed using functional magnetic resonance imaging. While a generally stronger appetitive response might be expected in men, our results show a significant interaction between framing condition and gender of the observer.

As a woman, I am on principle obviously outraged by this privacy-invading example of female objectification. In truth, though, I surreptitiously tried to check out the naughty pics myself. And to be honest, this conflicted desire isn't that unusual.
I really love my girlfriend, Liane. I just wish she felt the same way about herself. But Liane hates the way she looks, and describes herself as ugly and disgusting multiple times a day.
I wonder how many specimens Desmond Morris inspected before deciding that "every woman has a beautiful body", the statement which launches this book. Not enough, anyway, or he would surely have come across at least one that had gone wonky or started falling apart. He says our bodies are beautiful because they are "the brilliant end-point of millions of years of evolution".
D, author of Having Sex, Wanting Intimacy. But while the butt-naked you may not be hitting the same arousal buttons as her bared bod does in your eyes, you can be sure that she is checking you out nonetheless. All of you.
Some parents believe in keeping nudity as a normal part of family life so kids become comfortable with their bodies. Others feel things should be covered up as soon as kids are walking. We asked moms, dads, and medical experts for their take. At some point, you needed to get out of the shower in front of your young child — or get dressed or use the toilet — and you either decided to bare it all or cover up.
The revelations emerged in court this week where Angela Gatt was cleared of snapping a client's intimate parts, but admitted "rude" images were often shared. A carer has told how she and other female colleagues regularly photographed their own private parts, breasts and bottoms and sent the images to co-workers. But she admitted to picturing her naked body parts and sending the instant images to colleagues.
This week it came to light that when Lena Dunham was 7 years old, she looked at her little sister's vagina, and an alarming number of people have dubbed her a "child molester. I'm shaking my head in disbelief as I write because I can't believe that such innocuous things have become the subject of so much vitriol. If I had a penny for all of the sexual organs I looked at as a child, I'd be rich.
