From the pages of “Popular Mechanics“, January 1965:

On a long space journey, which would a man find more interesting – a blonde or a beefsteak?

To get the answer to this and other questions, scientists put on the walls of a simulated space capsule just two pictures, one of each of the above-mentioned items. Five men were locked in for a mock journey. At first, the voyagers looked most often at the girl, reports the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. But after 30 days on dehydrated foods the men had eyes only for the steak.

(Images taken from the net – I have no idea what the actual pictures looked like, or whether the experiment ever really took place).
