Hot Body or Pretty Face: What Do Men Prefer?

A new study shows that men only need about a millisecond before they decide if they want to sleep with us.

Hmmm ... did we really need a study to tell us that?

Turns out men are much more "lizard brain" than we are and are easily distracted by a pretty face ... or a stacked body.

Asking around, I think most men would agree this is true, although I was always under the assumption that there were two kinds of "pretty": the kind women dig -- pretty face, with little attention to the body. This is very often different from the second kind: the kind men love -- larger breasts (typically) combined with thin everything else.

The kind men love, of course, seems to center more around a woman below the neck and much less above. Or at least that was what I thought.

Until I asked around.

My friend C assured me that he never in his life hooked up with a "butterface" (a woman whose body was more attractive than her face) and never would.

Another friend seemed appalled that I had even suggested men might be concerned with all things below the chin to the detriment of all things above.

And so, I stand corrected. Or not.

Ladies, what do you think? Do men care about face or is it all in the bod?
