The Walk That Drives Men Wild

Left, right, left, right…we all know how to walk, right? But taking a stroll isn’t just about getting
from A to B. Researchers from Queen’s University in Canada recently had men rate different female gaits and discovered that there’s one saunter that captivates them. This wasn’t news to biological anthropologist Helen Fisher, PhD, author of Why Him? Why Her? “Women have developed ways to get and keep a man’s attention as we’ve evolved, and this walk is one of them,” she says. A man-melting stride doesn’t just turn heads ? Fisher says women who do it are also instantly associated with a slew of positive traits. Um, how did we not know about this before?

Walk This Way

Odds are, you’ve seen The Walk or done it yourself without realizing its power: It’s a slightly tamer, SFW version of the Victoria’s Secret model strut. Your head is up, shoulders are back, and you lead with your boobs. Your arms swing loosely back and forth while your hips swivel from side-to-side. Your weight is more in your heels. It may take practice to make it your go-to gait, so repeat this mantra to yourself when you walk: “Shoulders, hips, heels.?”

Once you get it, the stride pays off big-time. The combo of your symmetrical body alignment and rhythmic movements sends a subliminal message to onlookers that you’re in touch with and in control of your body (sexy!). And that makes them assume you’re also in control of your life.

Surprisingly, researchers found that most of us subconsciously cop The Walk when we’re at the least fertile stages of our menstrual cycle or are on the Pill. Why? Our cavewoman ancestors probably got plenty of attention from males when they were ovulating, says Sharon Moalem, PhD, author of How Sex Works, but may have developed this stroll as a tool to keep a man
interested for the rest of the month. (Also surprising: Our walk tends to be stiffest when we ovulate. Fisher theorizes that our predecessors wanted to avoid continual pregnancy, so they
would intuitively rein in their hips in an attempt to discourage advances.)

Killer Confidence

Walking this way won’t just make you look hotter. You’ll also feel sexier and more confident, says Diana Kirschner, PhD, author of Love in 90 Days, since your mind will eventually buy into the message your body is sending.

Try it when you arrive at a party, enter a meeting, or stroll toward your date. Eventually, The Walk will become Your Walk, and you’ll make a kick-ass impression everywhere you go.

Curves Ahead
The Walk also makes your bod seem more voluptuous ? a subconscious turn-on for guys that suggests you’re fertile.
