Today, we are reminded that behind every "Sexiest Man" there is a sexy woman. The Daily Caller, Tucker Carlson's news site, has put together a slideshow of People magazine's "Sexiest Men" of past and present alongside the women they have dated, married and/or impregnated. There is this year's winner, Ryan Reynolds (a.k.a. tomorrow's Mel Gibson), with GQ "Babe of the Year" Scarlett Johansson. There are the obligatory love triangles: Jude Law, Sienna Miller and The Nanny; Ben Affleck, JLo and Jennifer Garner; and Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston. And, yawn.

The slideshow is headlined, "The women who snagged the 'Sexiest Men Alive,'" but it's certainly also a celebration of the women as trophies -- except for the ones that aren't shiny enough. The caller concludes that Hugh Jackman's wife Deborah Lee Furness, who is a decade older than him, isn't "all that" and sniffs, "[C]halk it up to being Australian. No knowing what those Aussies like." I guess they haven't gotten the memo down under that men are supposed to date women at least ten years their junior.

All in all, it's a rather amusing spectacle of sexual selection. It's like a picture book version of Darwin's "The Descent of Man." I'm left trying to picture what a slideshow of the lovers behind Salon's "Men on Top" would look like: Jersey Shore revelers, gay porn stars and Katy Perry. Now that sounds like a party.
