Attraction of men for women's breasts


Why do men love breasts so much?

Attraction of men for women’s breasts :

There are several theories explaining the attraction of men for women’s breasts.

 The latest, proposed by psychologist Larry Young, defends the idea that it would come from a particular neural circuit used to promote the attachment of a mother for her baby during breastfeeding, but also to her partner which stimulates the chest during intercourse. By caressing the breasts, men would push women to love them more …

It is common knowledge:

It is common knowledge that men love women’s breasts. But why ? Not everyone agrees on this point. Some believe, for example, that a  woman with a large breast  is perceived as fertile and able to properly feed her baby.

According to Larry young a psychologist :

 But Larry Young, a psychologist at Emory University  and Brian Alexander, a journalist and writer, disagree. They defend their point of view in a book called  The chemistry between us  and explain that everything would be governed by a  neural network  that is established in women to facilitate attachment to their little one during breastfeeding..

It would also be borrowed when, in a sexual intercourse a man caresses the chest of his partner, which would push her to focus her attention and her  love  on her lover …

The attraction for breasts, a story of… brains

Larry Young specializes in the study of the neurological bases of complex social behaviors. He explains that at the time of breastfeeding , when the baby sucks on his mother’s nipple, the latter sees her brain flooded with a hormone called oxytocin , famous because it is strongly associated with love and attachment. Thus, the woman gives all her affection to her little one.

Important role of chest:

The chest also plays an important role during sexual intercourse and actively participates in arousal . Caresses on this region have been shown to activate the same regions of the brain as stimulation of the vagina or clitoris .

And as for infants who eat, the delicate gestures of a lover induce a massive release of oxytocin . The target of female attention, in this case, is none other than her partner.

Attraction of men for women's breasts.The bond between mother and child is very strong due to breastfeeding. Sucking the nipple causes a discharge of oxytocin in the mother. The same process takes place when it is an adult man ... Both sexes have to gain: behavior is selected by evolution.
The bond between mother and child is very strong due to breast feeding.

Love the breasts, the essence of man?

But why should Man be the only exception from the animal world? The authors of the book provide their explanations. On the one hand, in mammals , 97% of the species are not monogamous *, which already eliminates a good number of species.

Then, the difference would come from our particularity to  make love  face to face, which is not found in other monogamous mammals.

The vole, for example, climbs on the back of its female, whose udders are directed downwards. No possibility of reaching them during the sexual intercourse, therefore the behavior was not selected by the evolution.

The theory is attractive, but not unanimous. Because Man is a being of nature, but also of  culture .

Thus, the anthropologist Fran Mascia-Lees, of  Rutgers University  (New Brunswick, United States), cannot be in total agreement with the theses of Young and Alexander. Indeed, it signals that not all men are attracted to breasts.

She evokes, for example, these traditional societies in Africa in which  women  wander topless without arousing any particular interest from the male members of the troop.

The debate could therefore be a little more complex and perhaps not be limited to simple neural networks …

* The human species cannot be considered as strict monogamous. Aside from the issues of infidelity , according to the periods or the regions of the world, polygamy existed and still exists. Just think of the Ottoman harems or the multiple marriages of Mormon men.

Likewise, Man does not only practice face-to-face sex and has developed many practices and fantasies for the purpose of pleasure, because in him (as in others), sexuality is not just reproduction business.
