How do you think beauty is defined? More by media or more by culture, explain?
Culture. There have been studies that suggest even though models are skinnier, males still prefer having a woman who is of a healthy weight. Also if you go to different countries, different cultures find other parts of the body stimulating. In one country women cover their knees instead of their breasts if caught undressed.
Indvidually and by culture. Beauty for the most part is in the eye of the beholder. Just as what one person terms "sexy" another person views as "slutty". How often do you hear people saying the following after looking at a celebrity photo spread: "I don't see what all the hype is about."
Every year People Magazine tells us "The Sexiest Man Alive" is usually a white American actor. There are 7 billion people on the planet and the "sexiest man alive" always lives here in the U.S.? Coincidence? hmmm
What do you call a handsome suscessful single black, Asian or Hispanic male? Apparently it's NOT "The Bachelor". Who would have thought we'd have an African American president before we'd see a black bachelor on ABC. lol!
Great Answer sir .... So do you think the media has an agenda for other people's perception of beauty, if so, what would that agenda be?
The media only (sells) ads. It is the marketing team for the manufacturers of products and the publicist/representatives who pay big $$$ to influence consumers. Agents push to have their clients on the cover of a magazine. Whatever sells is repeated.

Both are great to be, just travelers tend to go more off the beaten paths and mingle with local culture, doing local stuff. Tourist tend to stick to the tourist trail and interact minimally with locals. So which one are you?
