Science: Leering Actually A High-Level Mental Process

“[R]esearchers found that men who reported more sexual compulsivity or risk-taking gazed longer than other men at the breasts and hip-waist regions of 20-year-old women — but not at those regions in girls or women older than themselves. In other words, their gaze seems to give away their higher-than-average sexual interest. And the longer gazes are confined to women they find sexually interesting (based on age). ‘We argue it’s a high-level mental process which guides this unique gaze pattern,’ Guo said.”
