Body Language by Kid Ink Featuring Usher & Tinashe
You can determine a woman’s desire for a dude based on her dirty dancing (and body language).
Kid Ink is confident in his obviously-girl-you-must-want-me assessment skills. Does she have to dance because she wants a one night stand with the Kid? Could she just twerk because it makes her happy? Her body may be talking, but what is it saying? We’re all eyes (instead of ears, get it).
Kinesics a.k.a body language is the interpretation of nonverbal behavior related to movement of the body. Human body language has only been studied in-depth since the 1960s. Clearly this communication has permeated society throughout history. Peacocks flare their feathers as part of a courtship ritual to attract a mate. Hippocrates and Aristotle were early adopters. Body language can help you negotiate a raise, win on the athletic field or inform others you’re not interested. Nearly 70 percent of communication is nonverbal.
People are animals. We think we’re refined, but we’re not. In the book Introducing Body Language: A Practical Guide, author Glenn Wilson states, “The human male has an inborn tendency to be sexually excited by paired pink fleshy hemispheres. I promise I’m not making this stuff up. Think of all the hemispheres you’ve ogled. It’s science!
Nightclubs serve as modern leks (sexual display grounds like those used by birds). One of the factors that drive a man to approach a woman is the provocativeness of her dancing. The movement displays her most attractive quality—availability. According to Dr. Judith Lynne Hanna, an expert on the relationship between dance and society,
Observations show 50 percent more people leave a club as couples than arrive together. Kid Ink eagerly agrees, “F$#% who you came with.”
In this case, Kid Ink is a seasoned kinesics pro. Odds are that the particular young lady he was speaking with did want to be a VIP at his personal afterparty.
