from a paleo view: Why do men like big breasts?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created September 11, 2012 at 9:02 PM

Just wondering what advantages big breast have prior to small breasts that can explain why men are "programed" to prefer big breasts instead of small breast. Do women with big breasts have more estrogen than women with small breasts? Big breasts does not equal lot of breast milk to the baby since also small breasts can produce a lot of breast milk, so that can not be the explenation? any thoughts?

While that sounds logical on the surface, my experience is opposite. I had extremely large breast that started developing in childhood. Eventually, I had breast reduction surgery which was a great improvement. Years later, I became pregnant and the baby had to be delivered c-section, because my pelvis was too narrow. So, while I had enormous breasts, I most definitely did NOT have "child-bearing" hips.

Yeah, Stoya has smaller breasts (around my size). Attractiveness studies I've seen show low levels of attraction for the truly flat chested, but once they get to be a reasonable size, the marginal benefits of attractiveness plateau, with only a few men really gunning for the large ones.

I'm a third on WTF.

That's pretty insulting to men and women there.

I agree with this, apart from the fact that the best boobs are probably the ones that you are not allowed to touch. The aesthetic attraction of breasts (in my experience) far outweighs the actual experience of actually manipulating them (as great as that is). They're often not as much fun once you've got them out of the wrapper.

True, but isn't it a question of robustness? Big breasts = more body fat = the potential to keep feeding the offspring for longer during times of food scarcity.

Hmmmm. Great as they are, I don't think vaginas have anywhere near the same aesthetic appeal as breasts. The vagina might be the receptacle of the arousal - but many other bodily features contribute to the state of arousal itself.

@ LikesLardinMayo- but with that response, aren't you now the one making comments about other men's insecurity? So, by your logic, you are also insecure. (and now so am i?). I think Steve brings up a good point. I myself am attracted to women who are petite with tight bodies. Most of them coincidentally do not have what would be considered large breasts. I am heterosexual.

I don't see how objecting to "You don't like what I like, so you're gay" makes me insecure. A lot of unattractive men only have access to obese women so they try to justify it by claiming that non-obese women look like boys, it is a way for them to compensate.

I don't think it's necessarily "big breasts", but a healthy, womanly figure that men are most attracted to. And a healthy, womanly (curvy) figure denotes fertility which leads to perpetuation of the human race and the male's bloodline.

I think large breasts are the epitome of femininity for overweight women, cause it is a lot easier to have large breasts if you are 40 pounds overweight.

This question should be reframed as why are Some *Western* men turned on by big breasts? Cultural conditioning. In various regions around the world, breasts are nothing more than functional baby feeding parts. As you may know, the Chinese fetishised the female foot and decided that women should use their feet to turn men on, rather than use them for the intended purpose of feet- for walking! I just read that in Papua New Guinea, where breasts are largely left uncovered throughout life, a witches curse condemns a woman to have "perky upright breasts like a young girl for her whole life!" there, and in many other places, and presumably in the Paleolithic era, breasts are for babies!

I have always said that it's not that men prefer large breasts, but rather that larger breasts are more noticeable. Men love breasts period no matter the size.

For example, two women wearing the same shirt walk into a room, one with big breasts and one with small breasts. Because the shirt fits tighter and forms around the larger breasts more than smaller, the guy might be more inclined to look the way of the larger breasts. However, if the larger breasted woman wore a baggier shirt, and the smaller breasted wore a tighter, form fitting shirt, then he would definitely look at the smaller breasted woman.

From an evolutionary standpoint, in tribes of naked women, the larger breasts probably did win out because they were more noticeable. Thus, natural selection won out also.

Personal theory, when you are baby regardless of the size of mamas breasts, they seem enormous, and are a nice soft place for a nap. They are just trying to recreate the feeling of being in their happy place, and scale up according to their current body size.

I think the waist/hip ratio is more of an attractant. I do seem to remember some folks actually researched this one, going around the world with drawings representing various waist/hip ratios. Men all picked the same thing, but in more traditional cultures the link to fertility was explicitly mentioned, while in the West the talk was, well, more juvenile and not properly linked to biology at all.

she has big breast then she's likely to have wide hips. That means there'll be less complications come pregnancy because there'll be easier for the child to get through. so she would be less likely to die during child birth.That's my theory on the matter.

While that sounds logical on the surface, my experience is opposite. I had extremely large breast that started developing in childhood. Eventually, I had breast reduction surgery which was a great improvement. Years later, I became pregnant and the baby had to be delivered c-section, because my pelvis was too narrow. So, while I had enormous breasts, I most definitely did NOT have "child-bearing" hips.

Aren't boobs supposed to be a proxy for a big buttocks (which equals wide child-bearing hips), which are part of an evolutionary sexual selection process like peacock feathers?

http://www.jstor.org/discover/10.2307/2460501?uid=2129&uid=2&uid=70&uid=4&sid=21101177641111 (some people get all the best research topics).

Certainly, in my mind, big buttocks and the best possible indicators of big breasts, when a "potential mate" is viewed from behind. So it probably works the other way around too.

I think its the shape and the signs of health that are the most important. Shapely breast can come in all sizes and its the total package that really counts. I agree with another poster that big is just more noticeable under clothing so gets the most attention but most men would prefer a woman who is beautiful and healthy over one that is not so much but has big breasts.

"I like big breasts and i cannot lie" :)

But i'm more attracted to a fit body in general, with beautifully shaped legs. I think it has to do with what you mentioned, but i don't think it applies to every man, different cultures, prefer different body types, that dismisses the high estrogen theory.

Bigger breasts may be an indication of a healthy amount of body fat for optimal reproduction.

But not every dude (or woman) out there prefers larger breasts. Genetically speaking, I may not have been chosen for mating in paleo times because of smaller breasts, but my hips are pretty bangin'. Nowadays, anybody can reproduce, so breast size doesn't matter, and more people out there like different sizes.

large breasts tell a man that a women has a large progesterone level. The larger the breasts the more optimal her Pg/E2 ratio this is. This also correlates with the hip to waist ratio in women. It also ironically correlates with gut health. A higher level of the pro-GESTATION hormone called progesterone. Most modern humans are starved for progesterone because modern life keeps them in the survival pathway of cortisol. This pathway is an oxidation pathway. It ages you faster. Evolution says, the cell must always chose between "survival or reproduction," (survival=cortisol, and reproduction = reduction and progesterone) and the inflammation levels are the "traffic cop" who helps make that decision for us.

Hence, this is why we see upside down PG/E2 ratios in all modern neolithic diseases. When this happens chronically, the lab panels we order show increased HS CRP, increased E2, and LR, with LOW free T3 levels. Lowered Vitamin D levels are an epidemic because modern life forces us to live in a constant state of oxidation of the survival pathway (cortisol).

Big breasts are a sign of a female who lives in a pathway of reduction, low cortisol, low inflammation, and pro-gestation........men are designed to opt for that because it means the offspring of that coitus is more likely to do well because high progesterone levels lead to superior brain development in humans which correlates with excessive longevity. Progesterone levels are critical for humans.

I don't see how objecting to "You don't like what I like, so you're gay" makes me insecure. A lot of unattractive men only have access to obese women so they try to justify it by claiming that non-obese women look like boys, it is a way for them to compensate.

That's pretty insulting to men and women there.

'Evolutionary Psychology' is just a matter of drawing Texas Bullseyes around currently observed phenomena.

Big breasts are important to some men in some cultures, not so for others. Bernarr Macfadden is said to have promoted big ones to his readership. Hard to tell at this distance how important this influence is today.

Reasonably: women have breasts, larger breasts are easier to see from a distance, ergo, more attention for woment who have them. Otherwise there is not much to say except 'Just So' stories.

Big breasts produce more milk...more milk production means healthier baby. Maybe it's an Oedipus complex left-over from youth in that way. Personally, breast size has never been a deal breaker for me and coincidentally I my mother was absent through most of my childhood.
