Re: not shocking but ever heard of the phrase
Oh dear, it looks very like another one of those "Newspaper sub-editor puts in an inaccurate but attention grabbing strapline on a story".
Actually the research *doesn't* "prove" that men "drool" over women, it simply demonstrates that, when men are interested in a woman they produce testosterone and it shows up in their saliva.
Well big deal, I'm sure it would show up in blood, tears and urine as well, but we don't seem to have (common!) expressions relating to those bodily fluids!
Sorry, but this sort of thing just irritates me!
