When it Comes to Sexuality it’s All in the Eyes, Researchers Say

This morning on my walk into work, I couldn’t help but notice an older gentlemen biking past in the opposite direction starring at me. When instances like this happen, I usually combatively stare the other person back to let them know ‘It’s not OK to stare at people – it’s rude and creepy.’ But unfortunately, I was wearing sunglasses so he couldn’t see my furrowed eyebrows and fully puzzled gaze. 

According to a new study from Cornell University published in the journal PLoS ONE, the eyes have it all, especially when it comes to assessing another person’s sexual orientation. Perhaps if I’d have gone sans-shades this morning, my pedestrian friend would’ve gotten the clear message that ‘Yes, I’m heterosexual, but no, I’m not interested.’

In their research, authors of the study found four trends: heterosexual men responded most to images of women, homosexual men responded most to images of men, homosexual women responded most to images of women, and heterosexual women responded to both images of men and women, but were more likely to engage in men.

In congruence with previous research that found a person’s pupils widen when he or she is sexually attracted to someone, this new study found similar links: That a person’s sexuality is revealed by the way their pupils react.

‘Fat Sex’ Author Contends Intimacy is for All Shapes and Sizes

A new book titled “Fat Sex” highlights an interesting truth about intimacy and weight. In the book, author Rebecca Jane Weinstein dispels myths about large-size people and their desires, and confronts the romance issues of all body types. Bottom line, regardless of our bodies, we all have an appetite for intimacy.

The book “Fat Sex: The Naked Truth” is a collection of stories from the author and many others. While Weinstein is obese herself, the book focuses on all types of people’s weight issues and their dealings with love and romance. Weinstein told TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie that she gave the book a head-turning title to get people’s attention and break down previous stereotypes about large-size people.

Weinstein wants people to understand that larger people aren’t unattractive to everyone, they’re not asexual, and are interested in sex and intimate relations. She felt these were the most common misunderstandings about people of her stature.

Dr. Drew Makes Sex Talk OK and Addictions Go Away

Dr. Drew Pinsky straddles the line between medical expert and media personality, often combining the two. After graduating from Amherst College, Pinsky got involved with radio during medical school at the University of Southern California. That’s when he started guest starring on his friend’s radio call-in show Loveline. His popularity soared as he spoke with frankness about sexuality and relationships, and soon he became a regular host. The show went national in 1995, airing live five nights a week, and the following year MTV picked it up for a television version hosted by Pinsky and Adam Carolla, running for four years. Loveline has been taking calls since 1983 and can still be heard Sunday through Thursday from ten to midnight.

Pinsky has appeared on numerous television shows as a guest, and has also hosted several of his own series. Strictly Sex with Dr. Drew aired on Discovery Health Channel in 2005, followed by the currently-airing Strictly with Dr. Drew. Strictly focuses on general medical topics. His show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew began in 2008 and has proved to be very popular.. He also appears on HLN (formerly CNN Headline News) for the nightly show Dr. Drew, and on the CW’s daytime talk series Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers.

Jenny McCarthy Credits her Playboy Body to a Clean Diet, Yoga and Lots of Great Sex

At the age of 39, actress and former comedian Jenny McCarthy has done it again: she’s gracing the cover of Playboy Magazine just months before her 40th birthday.

While some will never be fans of this style of modeling, we must admit McCarthy has managed to keep her body in amazing shape for decades, even after having a son, Evan, who is now 10 years old. This will be the star’s seventh time posing nude for the popular magazine, and she’s glad she did it.

“I’m really proud of it,” McCarthy told People Magazine. “The pictures are really gorgeous and classy. They could be out of W magazine…It’s probably a lot more sophisticated than lot of the stuff you’d see of people with their clothes on.”

One of the things McCarthy loves most about Playboy Magazine is that they don’t promote that “anorexic look” so many of the models have today. “The women are voluptuous,” she said. “So I really didn’t want to diet [for the cover]. I Just wanted to tone up.”
