Think twice before you put on that skimpy dress! As it turns out, risqué outfits might cause more than just an unwanted stare (or two) from the usual greaseball.
A survey from Sheilas' Wheels (a UK insurance company) found that men are more likely to have car accidents in the summer, because they tend to sacrifice attention to stare at a passerby's barely-there outfit (or better, avoiding the outfit, focusing on the "barely-there" aspect of it).
In fact, 29% percent of men who took the survey confessed that they, uh, admire the fashion choices of certain women a little too ardently. Only 3% percent of women on the other hand, admitted to ogling hot guys while behind the wheel.
According to behavioral psychologist Donna Dawson, "Testosterone also plays a part as it makes men more prone to aggression, especially when frustrated by a confined space such as a car –- and men are quicker than women to expose such irritability in hot weather." In other words, scantily clad women and heat is just not a good combination for the already easily distracted male mind.
This totally reminds us of Scott Frampton's mini-essay called "A Guy's View of Summer," where he argues that all this flesh makes men just totally lose their minds. Now we're really starting to believe him.
