Ask A Genius 322 – Mating Strategies (2)

[Beginning of recorded material]
Scott Douglas Jacobsen: What niches in the future will be exaggerated, as some niches are more exaggerated now?
Rick Rosner: You mean what niches will be—what niches—what roles will offer certain people chances of sexual success the way the job role offered people success for 100 years?
Jacobsen: Yes, also the characteristics or factors that comprise them. For instance, the modern LA version of the big booty with the Kardashians, for example.
Rosner: Well, I mean, I can tell you with regard to fashion, which is not to say body styles, but if you look at the history of fashion, some new part of the body is always being revealed or emphasized. In the ‘80s, leg holes kept getting higher and higher.
Instead of going straight across, at the lower thigh, they kept creeping upward until eventually, you had thongs, so more and more of the upper thigh and butt was revealed. In various times in history, we’ve had side boob eras.
So yeah, we right now are in an era that emphasizes the butt. So we can assume that trends in what we reveal about what we focus on in the body will continue to—there will be, the parts of the body that we focus on will continue to change. There won’t always be the emphasis on a single body part that we have now.
