ocuplania - "Ocuplania means 'letting one’s eyes wander while assessing someone’s charms' and since that’s the only definition I can find (it’s a rare word) I’m not really sure of what it implies. I can only assume that the word is Victorian and designed to stop a man [from] looking directly at a woman’s breasts even if she thrusts them into his face."

e.g., "Events demonstrate that I am infected with oculoplania when sufficiently provoked. But no matter what my unruly eyes do, kalokagathia is what impresses me most. Beneath it all, I am programmed to search for a combination of the good and the beautiful in a person. That’s kalokagathia."
