SURVEY Which Is Most Euphoric? Researchers said that a man's reaction to seeing beautiful women is similar to a hungry man's when he eats -- or a drug addict's reaction when he gets a fix. They said it's proof that feminine beauty affects the brain way past the parts that compose poetry -- and gets right to its basic functions. The study was done by researchers at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. It's published in the journal Neuron. The researchers measured the brain responses of a group of heterosexual males to pictures of men and women of varying attractiveness. The pictures of beautiful women activated the same so-called "reward circuits" in the brain as food, pleasant tastes -- and cocaine. The idea that men like looking at beautiful women is hardly shocking -- but researchers said evidence that beauty stimulates primal brain circuits has never been shown before.

By the way, since I'm in the mood to discuss the impact of feminine charms on the male members of this Board, I'd like to remind y'all of something that was once said by esteemed philosopher and gad-about-town P. J. O'Rourke, in the pages of National Lampoon. When picking out the future Mrs. Right in the garden of love, remember these three ageless rules regarding the feminine physique: [size=3]Everything will get (1)larger, (2) harrier, and (3) closer to the ground![/size=3] Eric The(ThankYou,That'sMyContributionForTheGender­WarForToday)Hun[>]:)]

[B]"The pictures of beautiful women activated the same so-called "reward circuits" in the brain as food, pleasant tastes -- and cocaine."[/B] So, for maximum impact, Playboy should be photographing each of its models with a plate of enchiladas in one hand, and a crack pipe in the other?
