Today, a ladmag deemed a woman sexiest in the land, based on a mysterious equation of bust-to-waist ratios, promotional availability, negotiations with publicists, readership appeasement and willingness to be naked in photos.

The ladmag in question is Maxim and the sexiest woman according to this rubric is Israeli swimsuit model Bar Refaeli. That’s her, up there, in her triumphant shoot for the magazine, demonstrating several of the stated requirements.

Rounding out the top 10 is: Olivia Munn, Mila Kunis, Katy Perry, Olivia Wilde, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Megan Fox (how the mighty have fallen!), Malin Akerman, Adrianne Palicki.

Compare and contrast with FHM‘s recent pick for sexiest lady able to satisfy contractual obligations, Tulisa Contostavlos.
