I think it's one of those "there's an appropriate time and place" things.

If I am in a deep conversation, with lots of eye contact, then being distracted by some attractive person walking by would be highly disrespectful.

Both of my partners and I have turned it into a game - kind of like mutually enjoying a nice view. In the same way that, while out for a walk, we might talk about a nice view of a lake, or a pretty tree, we will talk about a good-looking person that we see too. The point is that it is no more threatening than looking at a nice tree - we know that neither of us are going to start chatting up that person or do anything beyond enjoying a thing of beauty.
