Further proof that all women are merely a well-timed drink or two away from a groovy MFF three-way.

That is the best news I have ever read in Scientific American.

This focus benefit did not carry over, however, when the participants were allowed to consciously see the naked photos, the researchers report in the paper published online in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA. It may have been that the erotic images were on display too long, they speculate; previous studies have shown that it is difficult to maintain attention in one spot. Or it could be that social or cultural norms take over. "Maybe you don't want to look at the nude pictures," he suggests.

Sicko.

If I'm looking at porn nude photos, I prefer the naked female to the naked male.

No, we just want to see if she looks better than we do.

Guys getting paid to show girls dirty pictures? Sounds like a sciam.
 
2006-10-24 08:55:22 AM
Perhaps they focus on the submliminal images of naked women because they have to be on the lookout for the threatening hotter woman they'll falsely accuse their men of staring at, because they feel inadequate and/or are very jealous of the other woman's looks.

If there's one thing I know about women, it is that pretty much all of them are sexually attracted to one gender or the other or possibly both!

Goddamnn social and cultural norms, always getting in the way of our MFF threesome action.

Apologies Howie but if you were at a party, drunk off your ass, this is how I see you saying that

Perhaps they focus on the submliminal images of naked women because they have to be on the lookout for the threatening hotter woman they'll falsely accuse their men of staring at

falls down, gets back up, wearing a lampshade like it's going out of style

because they feel inadequate and/or are very jealous of the other woman's looks.

This much is obvious. I love men, I really do, but women just look better naked. We're more curvy.

Its kind of like a volvo versus a miata. Sure, you love the volvo, and it works great/will last forever. But the miata is just so pretty...

This should have the OBVIOUS tag instead.

Was this study conducted on the Isle of Lesbos?
 
2006-10-24 10:28:30 AM
And the homosexual men's response was similar to that of the heterosexual women, as were the bisexual women's and heterosexual men's.

That includes EVERYONE. So the sentence doesn't really make sense. Was that a writing error is it just confusion?

BrotherTheodore: That includes EVERYONE. So the sentence doesn't really make sense. Was that a writing error is it just confusion?

I think the response of homosexual men = heterosexual women, and bisexual women = heterosexual men.

/no idea what happened to the homosexual women, or the bisexual men.

I picture everyone naked, it makes me laugh.

As a matter of fact, I see all of you naked right now and it's cracking me up this morning!
 
2006-10-24 10:30:55 AM
Regardless, it appears that our minds are exquisitely tuned to detect sexual opportunity--especially when it is invisible.

If I could only figure out a way to slip a subliminal image into my annual review, perhaps I'd get a better raise.

/or a TF sponsorship for invisible BIE!

this article is useless and entirely unscientific (and tacitly unamerican) without representations of the nude girlie pics used in the study.

If you ever had any doubts about men who drive a Miata, llarken just clarified the situation.

Bring on the naked wemens.

Yeah, I just realized that when I read it as I posted it. My own reading confusion.

Yes. Its obviously the FEMINISM that encourages our insecurity. It has nothing to do with still present discrimination and sexism.

Do you approve of the new way I've shaved around my knob? I think it's quite striking and more than a little flattering.

There fixed that for you.

I have to disagree with you. I have seen some gorgeous men who look spectacular naked. The human body no matter what gender can be a beautiful thing.

Obvious tag on vacation or something?
 
2006-10-24 10:38:38 AM
To think, men like to look at pictures with naked women hidden in them
Totally shocking findings there.
I wouldn't have suspected such results!
Women all secretly want other women.
What man here hasn't suspected this?
One more reason to go for the girl with a hot roommate or friend.
Push the issue long enough, and I bet she'll give in...

I think perhaps you're not looking at the right men, llarken. Some of us look pretty good -- and some of the women can look pretty hideous.

honk is right, just look at his wang. Have you seen anything with a stronger curve to the right?
 
2006-10-24 10:45:09 AM
why didnt they also have lesbians in the group?
since they go for the bull dykes were they afraid theyd not recognise the women?

They walked into a bar with a priest, a minister, and a rabbi.

I'm generalizing, of course. and I happen to think my SO looks great naked...but on a whole, if someone was to show me a picture of an attractive naked woman vs an attractive naked man, the woman would be more interesting for me to look at, as there are more subtlties to the female form.(imho)

I shall support this point with recent experience. My car is in the shop getting repainted, so I borrowed the inlaws' car for the interim -- which just happens to be a red Miata.

It's a fun little zippy ride, but I've been told by numerous random women in the past week about how "cute" my "little car" is.. The attention is nice, but it's like hanging out in public with an oversized, stuff bunny in my arms. I'm getting a little self-conscious.

I can't argue with you there...but that's just me.

Nice picture, Farkin Icehole. Illustrates your point better than I would have believed to be possible.
