Curves, Bigger Butts, and Our Culture

Our current day and age culture is nothing short of miraculous. Things such as technological advancements, scientific ventures, and just how far we humans have generally come in the past hundred odd years or so. However, we are still not without our faults.

And these specific faults tend to be known worldwide, however, for the sake of this article I am mainly pointing out the superficial and rather vain faults that western culture are particularly known for.

Particularly in the media and fashion industries, the long going new age demand for women to be as skinny as humanely possible has seen a turn for the better in recent years.

The new word out on the streets is that skinny is out and curves are in. With famous western celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Sofia Vergera boasting their voluptuously curvy bodies across magazine and tv screens alike; the once sought after pencil thin figure is getting the boot for a more curvacious side of life.

Even across the globe the curvier side of women is starting to become a cultural trend. Such industries like the bollywood hindi films are back to embracing more voluptuous women in their films.

With all the new demand for curves, more and more women are seeking natural ways to get a bigger butt. In fact getting a bigger butt is becoming such a hot topic that women are even going as far as getting expensive and dangerous butt augmentation surgeries to enhance their figures even further.

But it doesn’t just end at getting a bigger butt. Women are also seeking ways to getting wider hips, through means of hip enhancing exercises and even the addition of estrogen supplementation.

In fact bigger booties and plus size women are becoming more and more apparent in western and cultures around the world as time progresses. Fashion industries are taking a less vain and more diverse approach to their stars.

In 2010 we had the first plus sized women’s fashion show, and at the moment there are is an increase of voluptuous actors appearing in magazines, commercials, and beauty products alike.

Such companies like dove have been known for featuring bigger women across their commercials in their campaigns for natural beauty — showing the true natural woman. Even companies like H&M in their recent swimsuit banners are featuring bigger women across the board.

All in all, its hard to say if the big-time runway pencil thin models of today will ever be fully replaced by bigger and curvier women, however, cultures across the globe are becoming more and more diverse and the natural women is finally starting to get the credit they deserve.

Texting And Its Role In Our Culture

Texting has become a major part of western culture over the past decade or so. Various individuals ranging in age from young to old are texting regularly on a daily basis — and the number of users who are texting seems to be continously growing as technology advances.

Texting is by far the most frequent form of communication amongst teenagers, where verbal phone communication takes up about 40%, and face to face interaction at only 35%.

In fact regular texters between the ages of 18 and 24 tend to send out an average of 110 messages per day, which works out to more than 3,200 messages per month.

So with so many people text messaging on a regular basis, what are they all talking about? What are the advantages and uses for the frequent messager? Lets take a look.

 

Dating:

Texting has become an integral if not required part of dating and courtship in our current day and age. Unless you are of an older generation, it is almost implied that messaging will occur sometime after getting the number, unless verbal communication is otherwise specified.

In turn this has bred an entire industry within the dating niche for teaching people (mostly men) the proper ways of texting, for proper courtship and flirting to occur. Learning how to text a girl you like has become a source of income for many dating coaches, and a method of getting a girlfriend for the future exceptional text messager.

In fact even starting a text conversation with a girl is a concept that leaves most people in our culture dumbfounded. The amount of pressure in our society to be socailly adept is huge. When people are able to communicate with dozens of people at the same time — making a good first impression is absolutely essential for courtship to progress further.

Sexting is also another part of the equation. Studies have shown that roughly 28% of teens using their phones are sexting; which is much higher than previously recorded times have shown.

 

Business:

Texting is also used in our culture for business transactions and related issues. Such things as tracking delivery packages and parcels are now a breeze. Exact times and dates are easily recorded when messaging comes into play; and hasty replies and concerns can be addressed instaneously.

Such other business related things like juggling multiple clients, better customer service, subscription services, discreet messages, schedules, and news can all be easier achieved via texting.

 

Since text messaging broke into our culture over a decade ago, it has since become ever growing in popularity and a crucial staple in many peoples day to day lifestyles. It is hard to predict what the future will bring, but texting seems like its going to be around for the long haul.
