The Secret Of Attraction: It's All In The Way You Move Stephen Fung March 15, 2007 Extras A US research team has determined that attraction isn't just due to the shape of the body, but also in the way it moves. During the study, subjects watched videos and animations of moving human figures and rated them according to their attractiveness. Female figures scored higher if their hips swayed, and male figures were considered more attractive if they displayed a confident swagger starting from the shoulders. These results show that the perception of the body movements serve essentially in the "feminine" or "masculine" categorization, rather than in the determination of the actual gender. Perceived attractiveness is the result of compatibility of biological sex and gendered cues--masculinity and femininity as specified within the society—according to a study by researchers at New York University and Texas A & M University.
