I believe it's the inner Pedophile in men, and the Green Eyed monster of Jealousy in Women that is driving the skinny market. It's become massively popular since Kate Moss and CK advertisements and the trend has just continued with young models like Gemma Ward starting out when she was just 15 years old.

All the negative press about obesity and health just adds to the pile.

to the op grow up - thin chicks have more energy and feel better about themselves which tanslates into more sex. If your old enough to type your old enough to know that. On her 40th birthday Cindy Crawford gave her husband a lap dance in the middle of a night club - fat girls don't do that.
