LONDON (Web Desk) – The average man will spend almost 43 minutes a day staring at 10 different women. That adds up to 259 hours – almost 11 days – each year, making a total 11 months and 11 days between the ages of 18 and 50, says a research.
Researchers also found that the males of the species are not the only ones admiring the opposite sex as women sneak a peek at six men for just over 20 minutes a day, on average. That adds up to almost six months spent admiring men from afar between the ages of 18 and 50.
Mark Ireland, a researcher from Kodak Lens Vision Centres, said: “Men are renowned for looking at women but it’s interesting to find out exactly how long they spend eyeing girls up. “A year of their life is a long time to spend with their eyes fixed on the opposite sex.
“However, men have their work cut out if they are going to impress a woman as they spend half the amount of time gazing at guys.” The poll of 3,000 people revealed the supermarket as the location for the most ogling, followed by a pub and nightclub.
Women rely on the traditional “ogling hotspots” with pubs or bars their most popular locations. But whilst the majority of men and women feel flattered at being gazed at, guys are more likely to enjoy it with 19 percent saying it makes them feel happy, compared to just nine percent of women.
