Melissa TheuriauLet’s do a little thought experiment – I hear it worked for Einstein. Say you’re a heterosexual guy in a committed relationship and you see this gal on the left walk by (who happens to be French anchor Melissa Theuriau). What are you gonna do? Keep on walking? Glance? Stare? Dare I say, ogle?

Well guys, that compulsion you had to stare, one you fight to suppress at times, is actually hardwired into your brain. And it applies to women too. Researchers have discovered a measurable yet uncontrollable need for people to stare at an attractive person for longer periods of time than a “normal” one.

Does this mean we’re off the hook for ogling? Hardly. Despite the brief ocular indiscretion, the power of rational thought often takes over, and nobody’s the wiser. Still, if you can’t seem to keep your eyes off the likes of Melissa, jump to the article for some advice.
