Humorous take on Sex Appeal

My favorite humorous social theory on dating was authored by none other than the esteemed Dr. Martin, who proposed the Easy Access Panels model while we were playing basketball at his house one afternoon. His theory went that the reason females in skirts are so appealing is because of the potentially miniscule time it would take to get into copulation mode with said female. The female's skirt, which can be flipped up by a mere gust of wind or a curious dog for example, is essentially an easy access panel, and the easiness of this access makes the female's presence more tempting. The underlying principle of this, of course, is that males are inherently lazy, so the more quickly and easily copulation can occur, the more appealing the mate. So I think a more general theory of sexual relativity can be summed up as the following relationship:

attractiveness / effort = sex appeal!
