A study was published that claims to scientifically prove men like to look at breasts—and women do too.
When presented with a series of photographs of female subjects (while wearing eye-tracking technology), men and women were shown to unconsciously spend more time looking at the subjects’ breasts and waists than their faces. The curvier ladies drew longer looks, and the study’s author thinks there’s an evolutionary reason: It’s likely men are more interested in women who appear overtly ready to bear children, while women tend to check out their competition. The author also suggests that society’s objectification of women is partly to blame for these results. Whatever the reason, now that there’s proof we stare at breasts without realizing it, maybe we can try a little harder to look women in the eye instead!
