Um, well... I guess I wanted to ask: how do you guys do it?

Today I was on an escalator. There is an Asian girl two steps above me. She is 16, maybe 17... Blue jeans, not too far from my face. I am looking at her legs, her butt... They are so perfect that I can�t look at anything else and watch her the whole minute it takes for the escalator to do its job. For some reason I think about an imaginary architecture masterpiece, how the two would be similar.

Half an hour later I still remember the experience and suddenly I think that this day of my life isn't lost.

... And all this me being a woman!

So I wonder how do guys survive on escalators? Do you look at the floor? Close your eyes? Anything else?

In America, we observe the "3-seconds" rule. That is the period of time during which we can stare at a woman without deemed "inappropriate". However, this only applies if you face the subject. In the "escalator" scenario, when the teenage Asian is ahead of you, we can stare all we want. Incidentally, my criteria of a "perfect ass" is the ability to derive the value of PI from certain measurements of the said body part.

Just for general knowledge..

If I am not wrong then Asian means, in general, Chinese, in US.

Um, no.

In general the word could refer to anywhere in, well, Asia. It is true that the word is most frequently used for East and Southeast Asia, e.g. China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, etc. Whether or not the Indian subcontinent is included may depend on the speaker and situation; there's no absolute rule. Certainly Asian can apply to anywhere in Asia. But away from the east and southeast, we're more likely to refer to the specific country, rather than "Asian".

That meaning is derived from the definition of "Asia" as a continent. However, the American connotation of the word "Asian" as regards people's looks is someone who, to a westerner, looks more-or-less Chinese -- e.g. the Japanese, Koreans, Vietnamese, Mongolians, Burmese. Why? Because up until fifty years ago that's what most people who came to America from Asia looked like.

(In a similar sense, looking or sounding Italian to us means looking or sounding Neapolitan, or better yet, Sicilian. Someone who looks like the people in Tuscany is not someone who we would say looks Italian.)

We don't describe people from India or Pakestan as looking Asian because they look pretty much like us (albeit perhaps with a better tan), and we're not Asian.

Well, perfect for some people...

I personally, prefer a big fat bootie. The kind that causes a woman to submit, and only wear a thong. (i.e. J-Lo or Beyonce butt)

In my opinion, Asian girls can look like young boys from the back. Which, incidently, might be why you liked her so much, Map. ;-)

The question is not so much how long to stare for (since as a previous poster pointed out, on an escalator the subject of the stare is oblivious) - but HOW to perfrom that stare without alerting the attention of your wife who's stood next to you!

It explains a lot.

Now , As far looking at someone is concerned , its ok utill the other person comes to know that .Many times at malls , I stare at someone and then she looks back to me.I keep staring at her and she does the same thing as if we are playing a game as who stops staring first.
Happened many times to me.how about you guys ?

And for looking at someone from back ,while your wife is standing next to you..that's OK , as men are men.

AW: but HOW to perfrom that stare without alerting the attention of your wife who's stood next to you!

Truth be told, when my wife sees a particular woman she knows I'll like, she discretely points it out to me. ;-) I think I just GENUINELY and honestly conveyed how unbelieveable some woman's talents are, and she acquiesced. I bet if you pointed out a nice woman the exact way a bird-watcher would point out some rare beautiful bird, then your wife would see it you way, too. It is something that I definitely did NOT plan out, so you might need to be patient, until she finally sees it your way...

The above point holds good only as long it is a short glimpse. Otherwise you know the consequences!!
There's nothing wrong with appreciating a perfect creation. We do it all the time, be it a sculpture or nature's bounty or the butt of a woman or...
Only thing is not to overdo it, else your butt will the target of someone behind you.

I have to tell this because Indians are taught that east means India and Asia means India.

It will take sometime to India to recongnise Itself as South Asia.

Like in India all whites are either English or Americans.(just 10 years back it was only English)

Map,

Imagine the same scene, only put the woman in an extremely short skirt.

.... now let's complicate things a bit ....

You know that you can barely tell of this woman is wearing panties or not. Do you duck down a bit to have a look?

I think this question might truly separate folks here. If nothing else, it is a painful dilemma. Do you live your life fully, or do you respect propriety?

Another thing: does the woman want you to look? I cannot help but think that there might be a few that do want me to look, but most want only "cute boys" to look.

A few years ago, a professor from a famous Japanese university was caught staring under skirts on escalators, using a pocket mirror ! How pitiful he must have felt.

Um, do you ask me? If so, then the answer is no, *I* don't really care.

I wonder if you'll find many guys respecting propriety here.

I thought that was the interesting bit. I think you do care. I would not speculate on whether you would find it ... stimulating ... to look, but ... from what little I know of you Map, I suspect that you would be curious to know if this woman (girl?) had that level of ... would audacity be the word?

Sadly, I think we all would. We are, after all, geeks. I may be one of the more obnoxious geeks and while I find myself wanting to say "Hell yeah! I'll have me a good long look! And I'll holler for everybody to know the status!" but I suspect that if I were confronted with the situation, I probably would respect the stranger, and regret it.

worked in japan for a short while. some escalators are long and steep and women wear short skirts (even in winter!...some days). so you can actually see it if you really look without the need of a pocket mirror.

Gosh, Paul. I am in San Francisco, here every day you have a chance to see something far more interesting than a lady without underwear. When naked bicyclists invaded the main street, I don't think anybody paid much attention.

I would not speculate on whether you would find it ... stimulating ... to look, but ... from what little I know of you Map, I suspect that you would be curious to know if this woman (girl?) had that level of ... would audacity be the word?

"audacity"? Whatever you want to call it... But me -- I am a horrible introvert, I seldom notice other people and if it happens, I immediately inform the whole MD about the event. Braille letters near the station name have much better chance to attract my attention than someone's miniskirt.

Sadly, I think we all would. We are, after all, geeks. I may be one of the more obnoxious geeks and while I find myself wanting to say "Hell yeah! I'll have me a good long look! And I'll holler for everybody to know the status!" but I suspect that if I were confronted with the situation, I probably would respect the stranger, and regret it.

Hmmmm... I think you are being too much of an optimist here.
