Naughty girls SEX Noble guys! ????

Howard found this article and forwarded it to me on Friday.

Very interesting!

Study finds guys not so naughty, gals not so noble

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Published on: 06/20/07

When men look at pictures of women in the buff, where are their eyes likely to go first?
Nope. Higher.

Men are more likely to look at a female's face before gazing at other body parts, according to a new study by researchers at Emory University.
And when men and women look at pictures of heterosexual sex, women look longer at the photos than men do, according to the study published in the journal Hormones and Behavior.
Both findings may run contrary to what most people think, but they shed light on sexual attitudes that really aren't all that mysterious when considered in a scientific light, said psychologist Kim Wallen of Emory.
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 gizmo to measure where his or her gaze went first, and how long it stayed there.

While men went straight to the face and lingered awhile, most of the women were more interested in what was going on in the pictures — the sexual activity.

Not surprisingly, Wallen said, women on hormone-filled birth control pills were interested in the overall view of the photos and "background" items like jewelry. But women not on the pill were more interested in areas of both men and women normally covered by clothing.

Rupp, who's now at Indiana University's Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction, said the "eye-tracking data suggested that what women paid most attention to was dependent on their hormonal state."
The scientists traced the findings to a brain region called the amygdala, which processes emotional information and excitement.

In an earlier brain-scanning study, Wallen found more activation in the amygdala of men than women in response to sexual stimuli. But the cause of the increased activity was unclear, and Wallen and Rupp's latest study suggests higher amygdala activation in men may be related to their increased attention to faces.

They've also concluded there are biological and evolutionary reasons for what they found.

Women can tell by looking at naked men whether the guys are in the mood, Wallen said, but women's bodies don't reveal much.
Which is why men home in on their faces.
"It's cryptic, but facial expression is one way of showing an indication of interest in and enjoyment of sex," Wallen said.

I was going to leave the following message with pictures of MY hands giving you the message.

I do know the alphabet in sign language!


I dropped my camera the other day and the lens is not working properly :(

I am so bummed about that, I love love love my camera.

Since I cannot photograph my hands making the letters, I have substituted with animated hands.

Let me know if you cannot read it and I will tell you what it says....

Add on...

Once upon a time, a long long time ago. There was a young couple. They became interested in one another and despite all of the obstacles, they fell in love. This tale tells the story of their trials and tribulations.
Here is how the story goes.
His name was William, her name was...

Here is my technique...

Your Kissing Technique Is: Perfect

Your kissing technique is amazing - and you know it.
You have the confidence to make the first move.
And you always seem to know what kissing style is going to work best.
Sometimes you're passionate, sometimes you're a tease. And you're always amazing!

It is a quick test, let me know what your technique is.

Hey Everyone!
Thank you all so much for your prayers, well-wishes and love.
I did fine with the surgery and am recovering nicely. I am up and about, but have a tendency to overdo it a bit. So, when that happens, I take a pain pill and go to bed for a while. (Thank heavens for the pain pill!)
I have to share something that happened during my surgery.
Right before they "knocked me out", the anesthesiologist said he was going to give me something to relax me before giving me the anesthesia....Ahhhhh Demerol....that distinct feeling swirling around my head.
Now, I am feeling relaxed....ugh...wait!!!!! I can barely breathe! Oh My Gosh....seriously, I feel like I am suffocating!
I think they put the anesthesia tube down my throat before I was completely asleep and I felt like I could not breathe. I tried with all my might to make a sound or move my arms or feet, but it was almost as if I was plastered down to the table.
Fear was running through my body as I lie there helpless.
My final thought before drifting off to sleep was that I was hooked up to machines and they would know when I actually stopped breathing. (hopefully)
The next thing I remember is someone saying loudly "Lee Ann you are waking up, you are in the recovery room".
I am not going into all the details now, but I do remember them saying, "we are going to give you something for the pain". [she's not allergic to morphine, is she?]
I have to say that feeling of suffocating and feeling helpless was one of the scariest feelings!

I am home for another week, then I will be going back to work. I will be glad to feel normal again (if there is such a thing).

Thank you again, for all the love, support and well-wishes.

Love and hugs to you all!
Lee Ann
