As a man, you’ve probably already asked yourself the following question: why do I like women’s breasts so much?
On the other hand, if you are a woman, you have probably wondered: why do men like our breasts so much?
Many scientific studies have attempted to answer these questions, but without success. Only the scientific theory of human evolution by Dr. Larry Young seems to provide a satisfactory answer. In the meantime, what are the 3 reasons men love breasts?
1. Inheritance of the mother / wife and child relationship
The neurologist first observes that the breast is a symbol of food and the first point of contact between mother and child. This attachment, essential to the development of the child, remains in human consciousness until adulthood.
When a mother breastfeeds her baby, the female brain releases the hormone oxytocin, a hormone of pleasure and love. This hormone also allows the mother to become attached to her child.
According to Dr. Larry Young, the memory of maternal attachment draws men to female breasts in search of the same connection. A bit like the Madeleine de Proust.
2. The satisfaction of human reproductive needs
Every man has the desire to reproduce at some point in his life. During sex, female breasts are stimulated by the same areas of the brain that stimulate the vagina and clitoris.
The breasts therefore play an exciting role during sex. One study found that over 82% of women surveyed felt that nipple stimulation increased their sexual arousal.
In addition, stimulation of the breasts triggers a massive release of oxytocin. The same hormone that is released during breastfeeding prompts a woman to give herself fully to her partner and show him affection.
Successful procreation therefore depends on a man’s ability to rub and stimulate the partner’s breasts. This increases the chances of conception.
According to neurologist, there is a process of natural selection in which men who particularly like women’s breasts are more likely to reproduce.
This attraction is “an effect of the organization of the brain of heterosexual men during puberty”.
3. Why in humans only and not all mammals?
So why did this evolution only occur in humans and not in mammals? Well, according to Dr. Larry Young’s studies, that’s because we humans have monogamous relationships, while over 97% of mammals don’t.
He further points out that “the fact that we move on our feet and make love face to face offers more possibilities of stimulation of the breasts of women during sex”.
