    I don't know about that 3,000 year old evidence that men have always loved breasts.

    From what I know about ancient civilizations I tend to think that most men back then could take them or leave them. A good, quiet stable boy or cabin boy was held in much higher regard.

    Why do straight men devote so much headspace to those big, bulbous bags of fat drooping from women's chests? Scientists have never satisfactorily explained men's curious breast fixation, but now, a neuroscientist has struck upon an explanation that he says "just makes a lot of sense."
    Larry Young, a professor of psychiatry at Emory University who studies the neurological basis of complex social behaviors, thinks human evolution has harnessed an ancient neural circuit that originally evolved to strengthen the mother-infant bond during breast-feeding, and now uses this brain circuitry to strengthen the bond between couples as well. The result? Men, like babies, love breasts.
    When a woman's nipples are stimulated during breast-feeding, the neurochemical oxytocin, otherwise known as the "love drug," floods her brain, helping to focus her attention and affection on her baby. But research over the past few years has shown that in humans, this circuitry isn't reserved for exclusive use by infants.
    Recent studies have found that nipple stimulation enhances sexual arousal in the great majority of women, and it activates the same brain areas as vaginal and clitoral stimulation. When a sexual partner touches, massages or nibbles a woman's breasts, Young said, this triggers the release of oxytocin in the woman's brain, just like what happens when a baby nurses. But in this context, the oxytocin focuses the woman's attention on her sexual partner, strengthening her desire to bond.
    In other words, men can make themselves more desirable by stimulating a woman's breasts during foreplay and sex. Evolution has, in a sense, made men want to do this.
    Attraction to breasts "is a brain organization effect that occurs in straight males when they go through puberty," Young told Life's Little Mysteries. "Evolution has selected for this brain organization in men that makes them attracted to the breasts in a sexual context, because the outcome is that it activates the female bonding circuit, making women feel more bonded with him. It's a behavior that males have evolved in order to stimulate the female's maternal bonding circuitry." [Why Do Men Have Nipples?]
    So, why did this evolutionary change happen in humans, and not in other breast-feeding mammals? Young thinks it's because we form monogamous relationships, whereas 97 percent of mammals do not. "Secondly, it might have to do with the fact that we are upright and have face-to-face sex, which provides more opportunity for nipple stimulation during sex. In monogamous voles, for example, the nipples are hanging toward the ground and the voles mate from behind, so this didn't evolve," he said. "So, maybe the nature of our sexuality has allowed greater access to the breasts."

    [B]So ladies, the next time you notice a man admiring your breasts, remember that evolution made him what he his, so don't be too angry.
    Toying with a woman's nipples arouses her. Hmmm... how many men didn't already know that?

    I think further research is warranted, and stand ready to volunteer my services in the interests of furthering science.

    Why else do they think old men try to grow their own?

    Yeah, but you just know that there is some twisted lib out there somewhere trying to figure out a way to tax and regulate them.

    What I don't quite understand: If woman like their breasts to be stimulated, why do so many of them ridicule men's interest in breasts?

    It is all part of the 'All men think about is sex!' lie.. They say that to put us off and make us feel bad.. One look at the magazine rack for women exposes that lie.. '25 things he would like you to say in bed?', 'What he really wants to do in bed.', '10 tips for the best orgasm.', and so on and so on and so on.. Truth is, women probably think about sex just as much as men if not more..

    You just have to find a women that allows herself to express her sexual urges and not live behind the stereo types and demands of society..

    I have never understood that either. Why would a woman get angry at a man staring at her breasts if she has put them on display for everyone to see? Is it because they want a particular man to stare at them?

    It seems that women like to stare at other women too! More than likely its because they are concerned that another woman looks better than they do.
