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.
