Subliminal Nude Pictures Focus Attention

Subliminal Nude Pictures Focus Attention
(Scientific American)
Nothing focuses the mind’s eye like an erotic picture, according to the results of a new study. Even when such pictures were actively canceled out, subliminal images of female nudes helped heterosexual men find the orientation of a briefly shown abstract shape. Such nudity-driven focusing worked almost as well for women, as long as the image accorded with their sexual preference.

In other news, liminal nude pictures are very distracting.
