The Rehydrate pool parties thrown at Ameristar Casino are a regular fixture of summer in St. Louis, wherein the city's beautiful people dance and drink and swim while a DJ spins records. Yesterday's party, at which DJ Eddie Halliwell performed, is the last of the year, marking the end of particularly mild St. Louis summer.

RFT Music's Jon Gitchoff was there with camera in hand to catch the party's highlights. You can see his full slideshow here.

Is it wrong to wear a bikini? Product:Male college students at Princeton University recently took part in studies of how the male brain reacts to seeing people wearing different amounts of clothing. The test subjects were placed in a brain scanner and for a fraction of a second were shown photographs of women in bikinis, as well as men and women dressed modestly. When the young men viewed the scantily clad women, the part of their brain associated with tool use lit up. The purpose of the research, according to Susan Fiske, a professor of psychology at Princeton University, was to examine ways in which people view others as a means to an end. Researchers also discovered that when some of the men viewed scantily clad females, the men’s medial pre-frontal cortex was deactivated. This is the region of the brain associated with analyzing a person’s thoughts, intentions, and feelings. Fiske remarked, “It is as if they are reacting to these women as if they are not fully human. She considered this discovery to be shocking, because “The lack of activation in this social cognition area is really odd, because it hardly ever happens.” Researchers have witnessed such a dehumanizing absence of brain activity only once before, during a study where people were shown images of drug addicts and homeless people. Another study performed on undergraduate students at Princeton found that when men are shown images of women in bikinis, they associate the women with first-person verbs, such as I “push,” “handle,” and “grab.” When shown images of modestly dressed women, the men associated the images with the third-person forms of the verbs, such as she “pushes,” “handles,” and “grabs.” In other words, the fully-clothed women were seen as being in control of their own actions, whereas the immodest ones were to be acted upon.

And instantly the uptight ones emerge in disgust. It's The RFT, not Conservative Weekly, this IS what they publish.

Most of these photos are just effin' gross. Really RFT?!? Are these supposed to make us wish we were there? A minimal amount of clothing at a pool party is to be expected. And a couple of the photos are appropriately cute. But the majority of them are just skanky and low class. Much like the reputation your community newspaper has acquired ever since Ray Hartman moved on.

Agreed. This looks like the 7th pit of heel.
