Question Serious question. Why do boys love boobs so much? - March 26th 2011, 04:04 PM

I'm not trying to be funny, I'm completely serious. I've even asked some of my guy friends before, and none of them can give a straight answer and end up making jokes. Why are boobs such a big deal and such a huge turn on?

I'm not sure, but I think its just because they are squishy and fun to play with.. . my ex could never answer that question either.

-coming from a bisexual girl- it's just the same reason as to why straight girls like penises (penile? penes? I don't know the plural) and testicles. It's just something girls have and if you're attracted to girls then boobs are awesome

Plus, like Nicole says, they're squishy and fun

Because having boobs represents femininity, and straight men are attracted to women who look feminine.

They look and feel nice, like everyone else said. And from an evolutionary perspective, large, non-saggy boobs are a powerful signal of youth and therefore fertility. Guys aren't turned on my just any boobs, remember. Saggy, wrinkled ones are squicky.

I think guys love boobs because they don't have them. I'm sure if men had boobs then they wouldn't be quite as obsessed with them.

Because they look and feel wonderful. Much of it is an innate part of human evolution, like Acheron said.


Love joins
Love unites
Love breaks us apart
The power to conquer here in our hearts
Enduring and sacred

For love, love alone will conquer all

I'd like to know this aswell. My boyfriend loves my bum and boobs (and I have very small boobs). I just don't get it. I guess as someone else mentioned, it's feminine and different to them?

Re: Serious question. Why do boys love boobs so much? - March 26th 2011, 10:57 PM

A) Boobs are fun and squishy!!!

B) We don't have them all the time, so they are something new and fun to play with (curiosity)

C) They are 'exotic' in that Guys don't have them and that it is taboo to touch a girl's breast. Breast are something that we are not use to touching and holding and playing with. So the act of touching a girl's breast is somewhat of a first step into "manhood" so-to-speak (Note: No, touching a breast does not make you a man anymore then cutting off your foreskin makes you a man)

D) There is a cultural expectation that 'real' men are fascinated with breast. Thus, every boy grows up trying to figure out what it means to be a man, and this is one of the definitions that we as a cultural gives them. Us guys are trained from birth to love breast.

D) They are an erogenous zone on a girl's body. Thus we are actually encouraged to touch them by your reaction to our hands on your breast. (Admit it, It feels good to have the sexy man you love handle your breast... and you let us know ALL about it )

E) Evolutionary Psychology. Symmetry is an important factor in the health of an individual, and thus the potential health of their babies you are trying to make. Breast is one of the MANY lines of symmetry that we can draw on the human body. Breast is just one of the most obvious ones. Also, Breast are used for feeding babies (back in the days before formula). Bigger breast generally means more breast tissue to make milk. It also means more fat, which a mother NEEDS in order to survive. Bigger breast, bigger thighs, and bigger butts means more fat stores for pregnancy. And thus, the more likely you are to SURVIVE giving birth to live healthy babies.

In other words, we know full well why we like breast. But that doesn't mean we can control it nor that it is even something TO be controlled. It is part natural and part cultural. If you don't like us staring at your boobs, quit broadcasting that you have them

P.S. There are many MANY other threads on this site that talk about this EXACT same issue...

This guy in one of my classes likes to give me hugs while he's sitting and I'm standing just so he can rest his head on my boobs. He told me that he loves them because they're super comfy. Gay guys, straight guys and girls alike have told me that exact same thing. I guess I could agree. aha

Re: Serious question. Why do boys love boobs so much? - March 27th 2011, 02:37 PM

I'm a girl, but I'm bi. I think it's just because they look pretty and feel fun. For guys it's something they don't have, so they get excited about those. Us on the otherhand see them everyday so don't see them as a big deal. Then again I still get excited about mine hahah.
It's just a sex object. It always has been. We have boobs and a vagina, guys have testicles and a penis. Both we keep hidden so it creates this "mystery" of the unknown. So the second we whip our parts out. The mystery is gone so then it's just curiousity.
That's how I see it.
Either way both are fun to play with =D


I'll do whatever it takes to be the mistake you can't live without.

Coming from a lesbian girl, they are fun, easier to play with, and comfy.

They are just a bunch of fun, hun!

I personally think it's because people associate boobs with sex.
And sex is a turn on

I don't think it's actually boobs that a guy likes, it's the idea.
Plus, when a girls boobs are being played with, she might get turned on and again, guys like that.

I'm bi, and I think boobs are sexy. The shapes and forms, big, small, silicone or saline, all boobs are good boobs. I did read somewhere though that the attraction to boobs has to do with bums. :/ The clevage of your boobs looks like a butt crack. Seriously. lol I had never noticed until reading that, but it's the truth.
