How Filthy Is Your Mind? This Optical Illusion Can Show You How Much

What do you see?

Just how dirty is your mind? Well, one simple optical illusion can let you in on whether your thoughts are squeaky clean or just downright filthy.

Though men may not think of sex every seven seconds, they still do think about it pretty frequently — and certainly more than women do. But those thoughts of sex can be fairly pervasive in everyone, and it can literally end up changing your view of the world.

For instance, in what should be a simple, abstract drawing, you can end up picturing something more than the innocent image on your screen, since your brain is trying its best to “matrix” the image and create something for you to see.

So what will it see? Well, that depends on you, doesn’t it?

Optical illusions can be fun, but they can also be enlightening. Do your thoughts always border on the unclean, or is it bright and shiny? If your mind is clean enough to eat off of, then you’re only going to see something innocent in the picture below:

But if you’re like basically every other adult in the world, you’re going to see exactly what you’re supposed to see: a naked woman’s birthday-suited torso. You might even struggle to wrap yourself around the idea that it’s anything but that.  

According to the makers of this optical illusion, what you’re supposed to see — if your brain doesn’t spend all day tap-dancing in the gutter — is two stick figures grooving it up, mirroring the other’s movement. But this illusion has people all over the internet pretty confused.

It is actually possible for your brain to witness both of the images simultaneously, but one is definitely going to be more apparent to you than the other, and whichever image “sticks” out the most to you is going to vary based on your thoughts and life experiences.

In other words, if you’ve got a raunchy brain, you’re going to spend far more time muddling through how people arrived at “two men dancing” when you’re very clearly looking at a pair of breasts.

So if you fight to find the dancers in this image, then maybe put down that porno mag and pick up a children’s book for a while; that is, once you stop ogling that illusion...
