Well, Freud would be very happy about this news. It would bolster his whole idea of, “Johnny, it’s okay. You want to sleepwith your mommy and it’s very natural.” I do subscribe to his iceberg model and many of his other ideas, but the Austrian bastard was clearly projecting his own “groovy kind of love”.
Anyway, I can’t say that this is at all accurate for everybody. Especially for those in interracial relationships. Now, I know that most people think of interracial as just a term for a white guy dating a black girl, but let’s keep in mind it includes people of all races.
As much as I’ve been made fun of by my brother, I do have an attraction for women outside my own race. In which case, I have noticed that the attraction is usually of women with a slimmer face and a more angular nose. This is a stark contrast to my mother, whose face and nose are more rounded. In members of my own race, I have noticed that I am attracted to women whose faces are somewhat round, though the attraction was certainly neither exclusively nor disproportionate in comparison to other women; the sharper more angular look is equally attractive to me.So that leaves a couple of possibiilties.
- Sexual imprinting imprints only for your own race.
- I’m in denial.
- I’m evolutionarily destined to fail.
Either way it all makes for very interesting reading. Here are a couple of more links.
