I'm listening to The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency on BBC7 (it's about a woman starting a detective agency in Botswana).  At some point she describes herself as a Traditionally Built Woman, and procedes to describe why being a Traditionally Built Woman is a better thing than being a skinny woman - snakes do not mistake you for trees, for one thing, and they will hear you coming and not bite you.  A wonderful doctor cannot be her husband, as he is not very Traditionally Built, and he does not think he will fatten up well :)  It's all so very pleasantly presented, too.  Cultural exposure is an interesting side benefit, too.
