They Study The Darndest Things

Salon.com Life | Broadsheet: "Two American scientists set out to determine how distracted a man gets while masturbating. They asked college students to sign up for the study (who better?!); each of the 35 participants was enticed with a small sum of money, of course. They were then asked to answer a survey on a laptop 'designed to be operated easily using only the non-dominant hand.'

For purposes of control, only some of the students were asked to answer the survey while aroused. They 'were first asked to self-stimulate themselves, and were presented with the same questions [as the others, in a 'natural' state] only after they had achieved a high but sub-orgasmic level of arousal.'

The survey questions were all sex-oriented; the Guardian notes that they asked about 'the attractiveness of different sexual activities, items and opportunities. Among them: women's shoes; a 12-year-old girl; an animal; a 50-year-old woman; a man; and an extremely fat person.'

The study pretty much confirms what most people believe about young men as a group: When already aroused, men might find all kinds of things attractive. (But shoes and animals? That's a bit of a surprise!)"
LOL, waste not want not.
