Why Do Some People Love To Watch Pimples Burst?
Online videos of pimples being squeezed are popular. In spite of the fact that the videos cause disgust in viewers, many of us find it hard not to look. Disgust is the brain’s way of telling us that we should distance ourselves from a potential danger – such as contagious diseases – but curiosity is another strong incentive in the brain. According to scientists, the videos might be so popular, because the brain acts out its curiosity without any risk of infection. The same phenomenon is at work when we watch thrillers, etc.
