Why do male sports fans struggle to contain themselves when they see a beautiful woman play the sport they love?

Simply put, us creatures struggle to avoid carnal thoughts, so naturally they creep into the sporting context.

When Kinsey researchers asked men and women how often they think about sex, 54 percent of men said they think about sex several times a day, 43 percent responded a few times per week or just a few times per month, and 4 percent said less than once a month. I call bullshit.

Ohio State University recently approached the question in a different way. They asked a group of 18-to-25-year-olds to count every time they thought about food, drink and knocking boots.

The results: The average man tallied 19 sexy thoughts per day—that comes out to about once every 1.26 hours. To compare that with other thoughts, men think more about sex than food and sleep, classic.
