Popularity vs. age

I see two trends at work here:

1. Scarlett Johansson and others are mega-popular right now. I think she, for example, is very pretty, but the only reason she's at the top of the list is all the buzz about her movies. The same is true for some of the others. Everybody who is reading current magazines that talk about celebrities sees lots of sexy pictures of those people.

2. The average age of our peers increases as we get older...and the average age of your readers is therefore probably in the low 30s...a lot of these people are less in touch with pop-culture than they were 10 years ago, and what pop-culture they're paying attention to has changed. They don't even recognize all the new names of the currently sexy. They remember Winona Ryder because she was exactly like Scarlett Johansson...pretty, but only made it onto everybody's sexy list because she had a lot of buzz back then.

Re: Popularity vs. age

1) Absolutely. But that was kind of my hypothesis in the very beginning. And I don't think there's anything wrong with that. Certainly a big part of sexiness is fame. Two reasons. One, "That girl I saw at the store the other day" was pretty sexy. But she's just not going to get the votes that someone that EVERYONE has seen is. Two, being famous is part of being attractive. Just as much as being rich, or having a nice personality, or having nice boobies. It's just not as obvious. People like to say "blah blah blah, people I know are much sexier, blah blah" but at the end of the day, I'm not measuring who is personally sexy to Mav or to Dan or whoever, because that's both really obvious, and not very interesting. What I'm measuring is who does the community as an amalgam find sexy.

2) Not so, actually. My readership is hella varied. I don't actually know half of the people. And I know for sure that there are a lot of early 20-somethings (and a couple teens) and such reading (and voting) I'd say the average age is actually in the mid 20-somethings somewhere. But it doesn't matter. I'm not trying to artificially create a list of 20 somethings. I'm creating the list for this community. And while a Winona might make it, so did a Scarlett. As I said elsewhere, the final list actually wasn't too far off of what FHM/Maxim produced. At least in the top 10.
