This may influence the behavioral traits of some Asian women.
However, men sometimes take this to feel "remasculated" in their interactions and perceptions of Asian women because they can experience feelings of dominance, power, and wealth (real or imagined) — especially in Asia, where some women cater to these fantasies for personal gain, or associate with Western men as a status symbol.
There's fantasy built into the idea of dating a Westerner, too, which makes them appealing to Asian women; the stigma goes both ways.
The fact is, each person is attracted to certain characteristics in a prospective mate, whether they are physical, cultural, or behavioral.
Who's to say the attraction is based only on fantasy?
A bit of fantasy can be beneficial in relationships.
The issue is really a lot more complex that one would think, and deserves a closer look.
A negative stigma exists around individuals suspect of such traits, and I always felt compelled to dig deeper into interracial dating between Asian women and Caucasian men.
You've probably heard of these terms before — maybe you can even think of that one Caucasian friend of yours that only ever dates Asian women.A common conception is this: The appeal of Asian women for Western men largely lies in the fantasy-indulging experience that engenders a feeling of dominance and masculinity which is lacking, or perhaps even threatened, in their own culture.Just look at the funny Charisma Man comic below (click to enlarge).Because Asian women come from a history where they traditionally serve men, the stereotype of the docile and submissive Asian woman feeds this dehumanizing fantasy.The sex industry catering to Westerners is constructed around selling not only the flesh, but what Sheridan Prasso calls the "Asian Mystique..fantasy of the exotic, indulging, decadent, sensual Oriental who will indulge you and delight you with the decadence and servility that no women in your own culture could." This fetishization of Asian women causes many women to wonder whether a Western suitor is interested in her as a person, or in the expectations surrounding the Asian Mystique.It's true that independence and power is valued more highly in Western women, whereas Eastern values traditionally emphasize community and social harmony, and are unfortunately more patriarchal.
