Stare For Sexual Success

Looking at someone directly increases a person’s attractiveness, according to new research published this week by Scottish psychology school The Face Research Lab.

The Aberdeen University beauty analysts reported that as expected people find happy, healthy faces appealing though also responded favourably to the direction in which a person looked at them.

"Faces that were looking directly at the viewer were judged more attractive than faces with averted gaze,” study chief Dr Claire Conway told magazine Proceedings of the Royal Society this week “"This shows that people prefer faces that appear to like them and that attraction is not simply about physical beauty, she added (Reuters).

The same organization published another beauty study earlier this year, which showed that women find men more attractive when other women smile at them, explaining a common condition noted by many men in relationships.

"We tend to think about attraction as a personal thing and personal choice, but we actually seem to be quite influenced by what other people think,” head researcher Dr Jones told the Scotsman in January,

"You hear a lot of men saying 'when I was with my girlfriend I had a lot of interest from other women, but since we've split up that interest has vanished'. We've shown that this is probably true,” he added.

‘’Erotic filmmaker’ Tony Comstock also emphasised the importance of smiling this week, in an article about the explosive growth of amateur porn this week, in London’s Metro newspaper.

“Smile,” he advised in his top tips for making a DIY porn clip, “The most consistently sexy thing a person can do is smile. Yes, pouty can be oh-so sexy, but an authentic smile shows you're having fun. It also gives a feeling of reality to the images that commercial porn doesn't have,” he said.

In more porn news, Japanese icon Nana Natsume warned this week that ‘facials’ can ‘hurt like hell’ and suggested men seeking a lasting relationship should do their best to avoid them if at all possible.

“If the heat of the moment does result in a shot in the eye, the best way to treat it is by washing with milk,” she advised, “Milk has the effect of washing sperm cleanly away. That's common knowledge on the sets of adult movies." (Spa Magazine/ Mainichi)
