Men Who Prefer Big Boobs
Being into big boobs may have a lot more to do with insecurity than you think.
As a very small-breasted woman, I’ve always felt inferior to the curvy and well-endowed girls whose bodies just scream va-va voom. Although after reading some facts about men who prefer big breasts, I don’t think I want to compete for their affection anymore. Read on…
According to a University of Westminster study, men’s attitudes toward women influence their ideas about ideal breast size. In the experiment, they found that men who strongly preferred larger breasts were shown to be more sexist, objectify women more and harbored more hostility toward women. Of course not all men who like big breasts are sexist, but according to studies, there is certainly a correlation.
Some possible causes of this connection? Big breasts are an outward sign of femininity and a primal indicator of fertility. Men who want to appear more “macho” might choose to favor busty, voluptuous women in order to say “I’m manly, see? I like the clearly feminine, sexually favorable girls.” Perhaps they make rude remarks about small-busts because it’s an easy way for self-doubting men to assert their masculinity—much like sexism and misogyny.
In fact, being into big boobs may have a lot more to do with insecurity than you think.
According to an article in Psychology Today, poorer men like big breasts while more financially sound men prefer smaller ones. Perhaps the insecurity of lacking funds forces men to feel the need to flex their patriarchal muscles and go for the women who resemble sex symbols. Or perhaps they find the maternal aspect of large breasts comforting.
The article suggests that maybe the ape-brain of men facing resource insecurity find solace in a busty woman because breast size “acts as a signal of fat reserves, which in turn advertises access to resources.” Interesting. Unfortunately, the only money they’ll find in boobs is the kind in a stripper’s bra.
To be fair, men who like tiny-chested girls might be equally as sexist. An article in Men’s Health claims that men who like small breasts also prefer their women to be submissive. Dr. Stuart Fischoff suggests, “you may get the psychological hint that she’s not trying to compete with other women who have larger breasts, therefore she’ll be loyal to you.” Maybe they prefer a less outwardly feminine woman because they view competing for her affection as intimidating.
Whether you prefer the Pam Anderson look or the Kate Moss, you can’t help what tickles your fancy—which is fine. As long as you don’t put down the opposite for not satisfying your visual needs, the men out there should feel free to worship whatever breasts they want. Or, better yet, worship the woman and love whatever breasts she happens to have!
Despite basically being the chair of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee, I don’t need the approval of men to appreciate my body; after all, it’s looking like I’m all set to find a wealthy man who’s attracted to me. But then again, maybe his wealth shouldn’t matter. And maybe the size of my boobs shouldn’t either.
