This picture was staged by the photographer. He had to ask the men to do it. They normally would have been gentlemen and just admired her from a distance. I think it was in Europe maybe Italy somewhere. For the most part it's more American men who do this stuff. For instance in Holland where my husband is from they normally don't behave that way at all. Its a social standard here for some reason. I think it's sort of non productive. It just annoys the hell out of the woman and then makes the guy look like an idiot.

lol, reminds me of college when I was often asked if I was gay for not cat calling, well lo and behold, lol. Cat calling is rather tribalistic to me but IMO it's also a natural urge. Yes as modern humans we can consciously not do it but if one is not thinking anthropology will just hit the auto pilot and cat calling away they go. As for the gay aspect of cat calling testosterone vs. testosterone yes I agree that more often than not it is a cry for sex. Whores, lol. Uoo that reminds me of July 97 when a hottie leaned out of his apartment window and cat called me while I was standing at a bus stop. The nerve of him. I finally reached my destination later that evening, lol. What I admire most though and I think most women might agree is a man who has the courage to come up properly introduce himself and tactfully and falteringly attempt to swoon you. That in my opinion is classy and even if I'm not interested it leaves me flattered not dirty.
