I want to hear no more about men not being able to concentrate because they ogle women nonstop — NO MORE.
When it comes to checking out competition women should not worry about men checking them out – but women instead. That is according to research carried out which suggests women ogle the bodies of other women for far longer than their male partners do. University researchers discovered that while men stare at the faces of people in photographs and fine art paintings, women are more interested in looking at their breasts.
In heterosexual couples shown a photo or a painting of a man and a woman, both preferred to look at the female form, but women ‘checked out’ the figure, whereas men tended to stare at the face. Boffins at the University of Bristol examined eye movement and found women looked in fewer places when presented with an image, but focused mainly on the female form.
Men, on the other hand, made many more eye movements, scanning the entire image, but paused only to stare at faces rather than breasts. The new findings prove that women in a relationship are much more interested in checking out other women than their men are.
Felix Mercer Moss, PhD student in the Department of Computer Science who led the study, said: ‘The study represents the most compelling evidence yet that, despite occupying the same world, the viewpoints of men and women can, at times, be very different.

Irony. It’s ironic! And science tells me so.
