This is so you ladies out there can better understand us guys…we’re always trying to figure you women out…maybe this will help explain why us guys do the things we do, why we are such pigs most of the time. Let's say you're at a bar with the woman in your life when your eyes move inexorably toward another woman walking by. In one-fifth of a second, before the conscious mind has had a chance to react, the male brain has rendered judgment on whether the oncoming stranger is sexually hot. Pupils dilate, heart rate spikes, testosterone surges and the eyes assume a vacant stare — sure signs that the “man trance” has set in. For genetically preprogrammed men, the offence is as involuntary and natural as breathing, says brain researcher, neuropsychiatrist and author Louann Brizendine, whose book, The Male Brain, mounts a unique defense for such male indiscretions. Men are more visual, more driven to sexual pursuit and more predisposed to cheat than women, she writes. The sexual pursuit area in the male brain is 2.5 times larger than the one in the female brain “consuming him with sexual fantasies about female body parts,” she concludes. Consider the implications. This amounts to conclusive physiological justification for the male practice of staring at female breasts. “It's a reflex that's built into the brain circuits,” she said in an interview. “At its core biological basis, it's unfair to criticize men for that initial unconscious circuitry.” So ladies, please don’t get mad or upset when we glance at that rack…that spectacular rack…we can’t help it. It’s in our genetic code. When we finally do look away, the experience fades quickly for men, Brizendine writes. Man trances are fleeting moments of unconscious aesthetic appreciation that disappear from the mind as quickly as they emerge. While our women fume for hours over our indiscretion, we've obliviously switched focus within moments to the ball game, where to go for nachos or internal debates over who would win in a fight between Batman and Spiderman. you know.
