Yesterday I went to the infamous Tsukiji Fish Market Tuna Auction.
For those of you who have read basically any guide book about Tokyo, you know that the Tsukiji Fish Market Tuna Auction appears in the top five in literally every single book. Mostly because you have to arrive at 4am to get “tickets” (vests); only the first 60 people get one of the lucrative spots.
This trope is behind the stereotrope that any given girl would prefer to date the captain of the football team instead of the captain of the chess team.
The former is bigger, broader, and more physically fit.
This doesn’t sound so bad except for the fact public transportation (trains, busses) don’t run at 4am.
If you want to go to the Tsukiji Fish Market Tuna Auction, you have to spend the night nearby, wake up at am, and walk to the market on foot.
Thus the strongest man in the room is the most attractive.
The first group of people are admitted into the Tsukiji Fish Market Tuna Auction between am and am.
The second group of people are admitted into the Tsukiji Fish Market Tuna Auction between am and am.
Contrast Weakness Turns Her On and the genderflip, Amazon Chaser, where a guy is attracted to strong girls.
Studies have shown that this is generally Truth in Television, although Real Life attraction is of course usually more complex than just one factor.
