Pupil Dilation Reveals Sexual Orientation

Cornell University has published a study on the open-source journal PLOS ONE, which reveals that pupil dilation can be used for much more than determining if a person is concussed or on meth.

Pupils

Now they can be used to determine a person’s sexual orientation. Researchers used a specialized infrared lens that measured pupillary changes while participants watched erotic videos (presumably on Sex.com).

Any change in pupil size revealed to the researchers the participant’s attraction. Pupils would widen if the participant found the material arousing. Depending on the material that their pupils widened to, participants could be placed somewhere on a spectrum between heterosexual and homosexual.

What can be done with this new use for pupils?

For one thing, this study has more or less proved that bisexuality does exist. There is a group of people in the world that strongly believe that sexual orientation is a choice, and they’ll be damned if you choose both. However, bisexual men participating in this study showed unconscious widening of pupils to equal parts female and male erotica.

The study has also revealed that heterosexual women aren’t as differentiated as heterosexual men. They were aroused by erotica featuring either genders, more than any of their male counterparts.

Cornell psychology professor Ritch Savin-Williams believes that the pupil technique can be used to assess trends in sexuality in a large population or in more specific cases like the sexuality of a sex-criminal awaiting trial. Ideally, it could be used to out Hollywood celebrities.

Let’s hope that the pupil technique doesn’t end up like this:
