Hang around a cosmopolitan city and you are bound to see many examples of this phenomenon: the Asian woman and white woman pairing. There’s something about them that are strangely alluring to men of all races. It’s like getting two for the price of one. It’s like a hot pocket of exoticness: Asian female for the white men, and white female for the Asian men. Or for the adventurous, the ultimate ménage-à-trois please!
Individually they may not even be the best looking examples of their respective nationalities but when placed in close vicinity together, they amplify each other’s attraction level. The sum is greater than the parts sorta thing, yeah.
And the women know the effect they have on us. You just have to look at their body language and the way they behave in the bars and clubs to know this.
Gemma Ward with local pretties
for the first issues of Vogue China and Vogue India
So I know why it works for us men, but why do you think a magazine targeted at women like Vogue does it? It brings up issues of white imperialism and Western standards of beauty being imposed on people of other races. But alas, my puny and shallow male brain made me look past all those deep questions. Pretty is pretty.
And incidentally, Gemma Ward who graces the covers above, is a hot Perth girl.
