15 Studies That Prove Scientists Are Huge Pervs

Sex is both the most natural and hilariously weirdest thing we do (we are totally getting it, nightly, we just don't talk about it a lot - believe us), so it makes sense that it’s a topic ripe for scientific inquiry. There are so many questions demanding answers: What makes us attracted to some people and not others? How often does the average person have sex with how many different partners? Why do dicks look like that? Seriously, why?

But the scientifically fascinating nature of sex is also a great cover story for so-called scientists who clearly just want to get their freak on and then force other scientists to read about it (which may or may not also be part of their freak). From studies that seem a little too close to overt voyeurism for comfort to straight-up hammering their own ballsacks, it’s clear that these researchers had a little more than scholarship on their minds.
