People watching

Eyeballing peoples reading habits on planes is a fascination pastime, and I can report some interesting observations, made under scientific conditions.
A woman (somewhere between 18 and 28, it's getting harder to tell the older I get) reading a 'ladies' magazine such as Cosmo, Hell-o or Good God spends half as long reading an article entitled 'SEX, how to get what you want' as she does looking at an article on frocks. Probably more surprising bearing in mind the stereotypes we are fed, the 'Sex' article got twice the eyeball-time as that of the piece on 'How to get your ideal man'.

I don't know, you ladies may be getting it wrong....we want to be Woo'd after all...
