A study by Emory University researchers found that, contrary to popular opinion, men are more likely to look at a female's face before other areas when looking at pictures of naked women. The study found that women will gaze at pictures of heterosexual sex longer than men. Emory psychologist Kim Wallen says both findings, published in the journal Hormones and Behavior, shed light on sexual attitudes that really aren't all that mysterious when considered in a scientific light. Wallen and his former graduate student, Heather Rupp, showed still photos of couples having sex to 30 women and 15 men between the ages of 23 and 28. Each was rigged up with a high-tech eye-tracking device to measure where his or her gaze went first, and how long it stayed there. Wallen and Rupp say the study suggests that men's increased attention to faces may be related to higher activation in the part of the brain that processes emotional information and excitement. Wallen says facial expression is one way of showing an indication of interest in and enjoyment of sex. *********************** Not a very large study group, but interesting conclusions none the less. :o) Now where were these type of classes when I was in college!! LOL I guess given the comment on facial expression, we can now look at pictures without a pleasant smile on their face in a whole new light! Or maybe we have all along???

animal researchers have long known that chimps engage in several minutes of intense gazing into one anothers face and eyes before intercourse. For a valid human study, I would tend to think a much larger sample would be needed. But its still interesting.
