This applies to male female dynamics.

Is it just a trick by nature to get us to procreate or is there more behind to what we perceive as attractive?

Physical Attraction is much more than procreation: it is unity between two people; it is the bond of love in a marriage, and the spiritual connection between two people; it is bonding with the new born baby you love; it is reaching out to someone you find attractive, and would like to get to know better; it is desiring someone for love, and sexual pleasures in a relationship; it is showing love to your family and friend, by the things you do for them; it is going out of your way to do something special, for someone you love and want to marry; it is creating the things you want to have in your life, for enjoyment; and it is enjoying the beauty of nature, culture, Art, and humans, in your life.

@Vee: This sounds like one is loved based on the way you look....and i guess that is true, for better or worse.

When we are attracted to a person,male or female,same or opposite gender. It is for our own good feeling. As Vee said ''in your life'' Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

I believe that the foundation behind physical attraction is perpetuation of the species.

But all you have to do is look at popular culture (books, movies, etc.) to see that romantic love is deeply imbedded in the notion of being human. So it goes beyond just procreation. The act of sex is an act of attraction, but (when accompanied by intimacy) it also serves to bond partners in a way that transcends baby-making.

Like all worldly things, sex and attraction are reflections of spiritual components (or, to put it another way, "manifestations" of spirituality). They are the things by which we wrap our spiritual being in human experiences.

A spiritual being would look at it as a great opportunity to recharge one's batteries through fair exchange of strength (by the male) for the inspiration/blessing (from the female) Having said that, the most attractive one to us is usually the one we've already contracted with prior to birth.

thanks and blessings namaste
