Long pins give girls a leg-up

IS the interest in leggy women like Rockhampton’s Dahna Martin or celebrities Elle McPherson and Nicole Kidman fading in men’s eyes? A recent survey might say so, but Kurt Howkins doesn’t agree.

He says his girlfriend Dahna’s best feature are her killer pins.

It was that feature, combined with her irresistible smile, which made Kurt fall head over heels in love with her almost four years ago.

New research by a UK university suggests that and they actually prefer them a little less leggy.

Findings claimed men saw tall women as abnormal, while extremely short women surprisingly were seen as unhealthy.

The men seemed to opt for mid-length legs, as in legs that account for half of the overall height.

But Kurt set the record straight last week.

“Men definitely lust for long legs – for sure,” he said with a cheeky smile.

“The blokes that don’t must be average type blokes too.”

Dahna said her long legs had definitely attracted attention from the opposite sex.

“Whenever I wear a short skirt or shorts you do get a lot of looks and comments,” she said.

Kurt and Dahna met by chance in the pub of small town Hay Point, north-west of Sarina along the coast.

Dahna was living there with her parents, but it wasn’t long before the couple moved to Rockhampton and have been inseparable ever since.
