Shocking findings:Guys Reveal Sexual Interest in Gal Pals
Can men and women be "just friends?" A new study suggests the answer is yes — but guys may be more attracted to their gal friends than vice versa.

Men report more sexual interest in their female friends than their female friends do in them, and men are also more likely than women to overestimate how romantically interested their friends are in them. In most cases, sexual attraction within a friendship is seen as more of a burden than a benefit, the study finds.

"I think men and women do want to be friends, they do want to engage in platonic friendships," said study researcher April Bleske-Rechek, a psychologist at the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire. "But the data I've been collecting suggests that attractions can get in the way."

#5  I need help on writing a proposal to get a (large) government grant on whether or not men like to look at women's breasts. I'm fairly certain they don't but we'll never know for sure until the science is done.
