The ‘Raelian Movement’ was founded in France in 1973 following the supposed contact between leader ‘Rael’ and an extra-terrestrial. Now 3 of the cult’s 60,000 followers are posing nude in “Playboy” magazine in an attempt to attract young men to the organization. Shizue Koneko, Rael’s personal assistant, is particularly proud to be featured in the spread, considering she’s 38-years-old. She claims the Raelian philosophy of sexual freedom has helped her keep her figure. In celebration of the free publicity, Rael will give a speech on the topic of “Nudity and Spirituality“ at THIS MONTH’S Raelian convention in Montréal, where he’ll also be awarding Hugh Hefner the title of ‘Honorary Priest’.

More results from a recent SUNY, Albany study on voices …
• Men considered to have the sexiest voices are usually men with broad shoulders and narrow hips, features that are related to testosterone and growth.
• Women with the most attractive voices often also have the so-called ‘ideal feminine figure’ – a narrow waist and broad hips.
• And here’s an idea for a studio experiment – people whose voices rate most attractive tend to have little fingers that measure the same length on both hands.
