The Science of Twerking
…in under 2 minutes
In this video im going to break down the science of twerking…because, why not?
Twerking: v When a dancer shakes her hips in an up-and-down bouncing motion, causing the dancers buttocks to shake, wobble, and jiggle (Thank you, Wikipedia.)
The question is why do people go so crazy over twerking?
To answer let me show you the 3 scientific principles behind the twerk.
The 3 Scientific Principles of Twerking
1. Shape Shifting
Men love the roundness of a woman’s body. The only thing they love more than the roundness of a woman’s rump is the jiggling of a woman’s butt—and twerking showcases both.
2. Babies Anyone?
Twerking puts a woman in the prime mating position. Ya you know the one I mean. So instinctively men and women know that canine style stance is great for making babies.
3. What the What!?
Our brains love seeing unusual and bizarre things. Twerking is definitely not… something we normally see.
Alright that’s all I got for you today. You know how we love bringing science to the people. And this has been your daily dose of bite-sized science. One more thing, can you send this video to someone who could use a laugh. We love spreading the science cheer.
Want More? I can make you laugh in my book Captivate!
Do you wish you could decode people? Do you want a formula for charisma? Do you want to know exactly what to say to your boss, your date or your networking partner? You need to know how people work.
