Your walk may reveal more than you think
Ok, thought I, this is going to be an article about walking and personality. Perhaps it's a psychological profile of people who have certain kinds of distinctive walks. Perhaps they're going to tell me that walking a certain way might reveal health problems.
I clicked on the article, and I was confronted with:
A woman's stride indicates how easily she can orgasm, researchers claim
That wasn't really where I thought the article was going to go, based on the headline. Now, I'm no prude. But I do prefer it when the headline of an article describes adequately the content of the article. A more appropriate headline for this article might have been:
A Woman's Walk Might Reveal Orgasm Potential
Such a headline would serve two purposes:
1) It would adequately describe the contents of the article, and
2) It would alert me to the fact that I probably don't want to read it.
So thanks for the eye-opener, MSNBC.
