Why do men like big breasts?

  1. andycool profile image69
    andycoolposted 5 years ago

    It's a fact that most of the men idolize big breasts. Every year women spend millions on breast implants and other cosmetic procedures to improve their breasts including enlargement pills, pumps and creams.

    Considering the role that big breasts play in our culture and society, the amount of time, energy, money and emotion that goes into breast enlargement seems justified.

    But why do men like big breasts?

    Evolutionary biologists have discovered that a lot of the physical traits we consider attractive have a sound basis in genetics. How does this explain the male fascination with big breasts?

    According to evolutionary biologists humans are the only primates that have sex face-to-face. All other primates choose the front-to-back position. Human females are along among the primates in having large breasts even when not nursing. Evolutionary biologists theorize that large breasts look like a butt! Crazy as it sounds, all the evidence fits: all primates are turned on by butts - except people. Only humans have large breasts and mate face-to-face. Therefore, maybe big breasts evolved in imitation of buttocks.

    Or is it all just marketing? Some sociologists scoff at the evolutionary explanations offered above. They theorize that the male fascination with big breasts is driven by the advertising and media machine.

    Their explanation goes like this: children are exposed to seductive, sensual sexy advertising featuring busty female models. Children are taught to associate these images with arousal.

    What do you think?

      Yes, think of all of the suggestive advertisement. These people spend billions on campaigns that will strike you sub consciously. As you mature your brain/computer is programmed to make the necessary association. consequently you think ( from a man's point of  view) this is what you like. Not to long ago I say a picture of a woman with the largest breast in the world. After she had reach the limit for enlargement in the United States she left for another country  who would go another notch. She developed an infection and had to have reduction surgery.

      Her boyfriend had had enough before she left the States. They  were silicone. It's artificial. Both male and female are living in an illusion charged world

      So why do they have a Rear of the Year award then?

      Verdict on this hypothesis: fail.

      I'm sure that for every man who likes 'em big, there's probably one whose motto is "small ones are juicier".

      And speaking for myself (I'm female FWIW), I can't understand why any man would be turned on by silicone boobs, especially the unfeasibly huge ones. Ewww.

      I'm a boob lover and adore this wonderful creation.  The beauty about boobs is that they come in practically all shapes and sizes, and all of them have a certain element of attractive elements to them. For instance, a woman with small 'namesake' breasts can still have really hard and sensitive nipples, which men find so sexy. On the other, woman with large boobies generally have large areolas (which are so beautiful by themselves). One of the greatest advantages of big breasts is the immense scope they offer to the partner to enjoy them. They can be felt all over, groped, squeezed, crushed etc. and even loved (mammary intercourse). So, t's no surprise that big tits are the general preference of most men. A woman with large breasts is so 'womanly'. PERIOD.
      The other remarkable thing about breasts is that the daughter may end up having bigger tits than her mother. There are examples of younger sisters possessing bigger boobs than the older (the example of Serena Williams who has fantastic tits comes to my mind).
      One thing I've always wondered about is that how does a woman with a flat chest look at a big titted woman? Would she envy the latter or sympathize with her? Unlike men who have the 'advantage' in that their penises have a 'passive state', and no other man has any idea about it, the size of boobs (and even booty) of women are so apparent to each other that they just cannot pretend to be ignorant about. So, how do they react to their different sizes? Do they make fun of each others' breasts or praise them openly? This is smething I've always wanted to know.

    Breasts are the first place men (and women) find comfort and security, and for a baby any breast is large.   It is just fun to be not too grown-up buddy big_smile

    The sex from behind theory is flawed as the breasts are far more convenient for hands when the other side, in fact it would be more convenient if breasts were on a woman's back for dancing and face to face sex - would it not ??

    On a more serious note, Asian women generally have smaller breasts and I think this might be to do with the fact that dairy products are unusual in Asian diet, maybe this is why western women often look like milk cows with their supposedly sexy big breasts sagging half way to their knees ?

    Why some women try to attract men by flaunting their breasts by wearing tight outfits or displaying breast cleavages? Isn't it true that some women with big breasts are more proud about their body and so more confident in life?

      You are confusing breasts with penis !  99% of women with big breasts are faking it and it all falls down when the uplifting support is removed big_smile 

      I prefer naturally small but nicely shaped breasts myself rather than udders, unfortunately due to lack of excercise I am developing exactly that !

      Beauty also comes from movement and a naturally slim easy moving figure is more attractive overall than a pair of chubby legs with a vast weight of fat on top - in a fair race with a tiger my favourite would win every time big_smile

    I dont think its necessarily true that men always like large breasts. For me, if I am going to be concerned about breasts at all, I'm looking for them to be nicely shaped and natural. Large breasts often are not so nicely shaped, especially as they get older. Small breasts on the other hand are usually perky and pretty. And I do not go for women with implants or augmentations. To me that just isnt natural. Women should work with what nature blessed her with. Obviously, I would make exceptions for women who have dealt with breast cancer, but cosmetic breast augmentation purely for the fashion definitely doesnt appeal to me. I admit large breasts easily catch a man's eyes, but catching his heart is something else. Although I do understand considering women start to grow them aroung age 11 or 12 and boys their age quickly become obsessed with the sight of them and the larger ones get more immediate attention. I can understand how a memory or experience at such an impressionable age would stay with a girl after reaching adulthood, but boys also mature and we do end up valuing other things.

    I am attracted to big breasts, but not like huge. Usually, if they are super big it's because the person is overweight in some cases.

    But proportion I think makes sense. If a girl is a small frame and has double D cup, then I think that is not right. It will just lead to back issues for the woman, unless she exercises her lower back. And most people in the US don't exercise their lower back.

    On the flip side, if a girl is large framed and has small breasts, I think it is odd. But genetics play a big role, people can not control everything, unless they get surgery.

    Humans are not the only species that have sex face to face. There is a monkey that has sex face to face (and they french kiss too).

    I don't know what I can lend to the explanation other than tell you I love big breasts! I prefer them if I have a choice, but I also love small ones too. I've wondered about my fascination with them as well and have never been able to discern the "why". So far the only thing I have come up with is that I grew up in an age where the media pushed that bigger was the thing to do and so everyone started getting breast implants. I wonder if 30 years from now if "bigger is better" has no longer been pushed in the media or on barbie dolls, if the common male preference will change. With that said, breasts are just beautiful. I have a shirt that reads, "Boobies make me smile" - and, they do smile

      One point in favor of implanted breasts is that they can be big yet perky... and that's possible even on slender bodies!

      When someone gets excited on seeing Pamela Anderson's (Baywatch Fame) big breasts... is it possible not being aroused thinking that her twin assets are fake?

    The love of big breasts seems to have something to do with the age of the men. For example, my ex and my current husband absolutely adore huge breasts. In fact, neither of them believes that boobies can be too large - the bigger, the better. I don't think most younger guys feel this way, however.

    If my hubby had to tote these puppies around for a few days, I think he'd see things differently! lol.

    Ditto on the back problems comments from other posters, BTW. I went to a seminar about breast reductions because I wanted one. When the speaker got to the part about cutting off the nipples, I made a hasty exit. OUCH!!!!

    Men are attracted to as much of the opposite of our own form as possible.

    Long hair, a round behind, small waist, shapely legs and thighs, with breast cup size of B+ and above is a "fantasy woman" for most men. (However in reality men fall in love and marry women of all shapes and sizes.) For example:Cameron Diaz or Penelope Cruz are small busted women and have no problems attracting men. A pretty face with a beautiful smile goes a long way.
    A morbidly obese woman with 55 DDD breast is not going attract the bulk of men.
    Everything is in proportion.

    The majority of women that have breast augmentation will never admit they did so with men in mind. However if "flat chested" women became the rage for men I bet you'd see a steep decline in breast implants! lol

      I also agree that certain men go after women of all shapes and sizes... my   uncle is what you would call a "chubby chaser" and I also have a male friend that goes after women with pixie like physiques. 

      I work in a lingerie store that actually carries up to a 42DDD and most of the women I see with breasts that large complain about them.  They hate their large busts and often buy our minimizing bras.  Only a few of the women embrace their large busts.  And the slender women with large busts hate them more than the larger women... they say they get in the way and hurt!

    I think this is a stereotype and myth.  I do not like big breasts.  They are unwieldy and I totally do not want to know what is underneath them and yuck if they are hairy.  I like petite women and much prefer medium to small breasts.  Again, this is a stereotype that all men like big breasts!  Women who get the breast surgery, etc. mostly do so based on a false assumption/belief that they have.  It is true that media feeds into this myth...that all men want big breasts thus making women feel insecure.  I feel pretty certain about what I say.  I'm middle aged and experienced.  I have insight and excellent abilities to think critically and analytically.

    Big , small , round or hardly any at all ! I love them all , to tell you the truth , I love each feminine thing almost as much ! Being a romantic , the way she tucks her hair behind her ear , or how she stands as she talks to me , The way that a woman laughs , or how tears come to their eye's soo easily !   There is just too much to love about a womans body !
