So why DO we like them?

In conversation with a couple of ladies the other night the subject of the average heterosexual male's fascination with breasts came up. The ladies were a little at a loss as to WHY men like breasts so much. I know that I do, but I have no idea why. I can come up with all sorts of pseudo scientific reasons, but in truth they just appeal to me in a rather primal kind of way. So gents, what do you think is the reason that we find them so attractive. Any ladies have a clue - do you like other women's breasts too. Why?

They're pillows with a built in heater, they have little knobs that we can fine tune like a car stereo; and we can go motorboating without ever having to worry about a lifejacket! The fact we don't have them ourselves adds to the mystery and fascination too. (Well MOST of us men don't have them!)

Plus a neck rest in the bath. Very important that! Last time I tried the radio tuning I got "Off air"!

You did? I managed to get a few seconds of Streisand's "Mammories" once, but it was over quickly.

I believe it is a three-fold answer. It is a combination of trying to find the sustanance and comfort of 'mother', the pleasure of cuddling of your favorite teddy bear when growing up, and finally men's need to possess that which they don't have. Since men may have large bay windows in the front, most have little cabooses in the back...that's probably why so many men like well-padded cabooses in women, too.

You've been peeking haven't you? LOL. I wish that there was a bay window in the front. I think that I might be back to front!

Back to front, front to back, or side to side. It's all good. Don't forget to shave the legs and wear heels....

Well I think it's because men don't have them, but as you also know, it's not always true that we always want what we don't have . I don't want what men have. It could have something to do with the whole 'mom' thing but I don't know about that either.

I don't know either. Maybe it's the nurturing thing. I know that I like them though.

My better half saw me reading this and said... "Because I need a place to put my head when I'm tired, something to prop up on when my favorite wall is taken on my lunch break, something to grab a hold of when I can't find a stress ball, and because it's a little extra padding against the heart when we men f**k up" *eyeroll* Who knew

I have no opinion of other women's or my own. I also have no clue as to why they are appealing to anyone other then infants.
@p1kef1sh (45640)

They are though and that's what I am trying to understand.

I don't know the particular reason behind that, my friend. But for me, I really attracted with a good boobs of woman. It's seems that part is really a perfect one for me. I don't understand about what I feel if seeing those sexy things. It feels so beautiful to look for...

I really have no idea on this one, P1key. I also have no idea whether bulls get themselves into a tangle when they spy a nice udder. It's a mystery. From a purely artistic perspective, I find many bodies attractive - male and female - but these days, you wouldn't know whether you were grabbing for real flesh or plastic baubles, would you?
@p1kef1sh (45640)

Now there's a thought. Bulls might come over all amorous when a fine udder is spied Guy. I agree, plastic is most unsatisfactory.

Culture leads me to believe that cleavage, or at least the "right amount of it" is sexy. And so that's what I believe, even as a female. Culture also leads me to believe, though, that too much makes girls look trashy, and too little almost makes them look to conservative. We have these really weird standards..And I think a lot of us forget WHY we hold certain things as standards. It's weird. I definitely agree with you, that it has something to do with it being a "primal" thing - an instinctual attraction that we really have no control over. (Why are we attracted to certain body types to begin with? It's all things we have no control over!) In a way, I think it might have something to do with the whole Oedipus Rex complex. I can't explain it intelligently, though, so I'll leave it at that. lol.
@p1kef1sh (45640)

I can't explain it either. But all I know is that I find them attractive.
