Why Do Men Like Breasts So Much?

I was out last night and as it often does, the female conversation turned to bodies, or more specifically, what's wrong with them. The list was long and painfully typical--too small, too big, too saggy, too round, too long. After a couple of rounds of discussion, the question was asked: Why do men like breasts so much? The heads of those in the circle of conversation who knew me and what I do, turned expectantly in my direction.

So despite the fact that have made it clear that I am not a professional, but only a woman with a studied (read practical, lifelong observation)point of view, I gave them the answer that first popped into my head. I share it now with you for your consideration.

My theory is that men like breasts for two main reasons: First, because right or wrong, breasts have become the visual badge of a woman's sexuality. The bigger the boobs, supposedly the greater her sexual prowess. (Thanks Pamela Anderson. No surprise here that you got voted off of Dancing With the Stars) Now we enlightened women know that this is a crock of horse poop, but it is what it is, and trying to change a man's mind on this subject is wasted energy. We also know that while the majority of men will raise both hands when offered a serving of double D's, when talking about the woman they love, large breasts fall way down on the list of things they love (or miss) about her.

The second, and most important reason that I believe that men love breasts are because no matter what their size or shape,they are interactive. Breasts, particularly nipples, respond physically to arousal and desire. Men love the way breasts become engorged and how nipples swell and stiffen in their hands and mouths. This gives our visually oriented partners immediate feedback,ego gratification and the incentive to continue to please.

So again, ladies, stop worrying about what you don't have and start enjoying what you do. Embrace the health and sensitivity of your breasts and let the other things like their size and shape fall way down on your list of things you dislike about yourself. Wrap them up pretty like the gift they are and enjoy the sexual energy the produce.

Change your Sexitude. Change your life.

That's a very interesting answer and I like it. Men are so visual that any, and I mean any sign that they are pleasing you is cause for an ego soar! But one man told me his reason goes all the way back to age 5 or 6 when he witnessed his friend, also age 5 or 6, breastfeeding on his mother, along with his baby brother, at the same time! He looked at his mother expectantly and said, where's mine? She laughed and told him he had better get away from her. After that he developed a fixation on breasts and that's how it became his favorite body part. Other men may have similar stories. That would be interesting to find out.

Because they are different, because they are hidden (and offered to me as a sign of your interest in me), because they make you do that sexy shimmy when I tweak them, because it makes me feel so extra special when I get to touch them, because they are soft in ways that say feminine, because they excite a deep animal interest.

I feel that this is an uncomman body part for man as compare to female as we can notice that both the gender are attracted to uncomman part of each other.

Miit, I have noticed that both genders find the rear to be attractive.

It starts off largely as a matter of the forbidden fruit. Not only can we never see it, we are told we can't, its bad (in some version of those words) and it builds up in our minds. Our peers, society and the media and advertising reinforce it from a young age. I do very much agree with the instant gratification angle. We all like our egos stroked and the faster the better.

Speaking from an evolutionary standpoint maybe men like breasts(big ones) because it shows how much nutrition the mother can provide the children. Small breasts = not enough nutrition for the baby. Large Breasts equal more milk which make babies healthy and strong.
