Sexual Identity

Sexual Identity

AskMen / Thinkstock

The look of love is definitely in your eyes, and, according to a new study, your eyes can even reveal the object of your desire.

Researchers from Cornell University tested a group of subjects by making them watch porn and found that the subjects’ pupils dilate more when they were sexually aroused. One hundred and sixty-five men and 160 women both watched a two-minute internet video of a man and a woman masturbating, while having their pupils monitored with an infrared gaze tracker.

The results showed that heterosexual men dilated much more when watching the female image, gay men responded to the male image and bisexual men reacted strongly to both.

But women were slightly different. The heterosexual group actually dilated quite a bit while viewing both images, while homosexual women were more reactive to the female image.

Let’s not jump the gun and assume that just because someone is attracted to the opposite sex they want to have sex with them. After all, women can appreciate a beautiful woman and men can appreciate a handsome man. Even so, it’s apparent that our pupils don’t lie.

The next phase of the study will examine genital reaction and correlate them with pupil movement. That will give us more insight into who really wants a piece of whom.
