Men are either "Ass Men" or "Boob Men". There are other categories as well, like guys who prefer feet, but the majority of men are looking at the lovely lady lump in the back or in the front. One study established why men are attracted to breasts, and it is all about biology.

Butts or Breasts?

Guys either love butts or they love breasts. There are some who also enjoy other parts of the female body like feet, armpits, and bellies. However, the majority of men fall into the first two categories.

Boob Men

The category of "Boob Men" is also divided into two sub-categories. There are those who like big boobs and those who prefer smaller boobs. The question that has always perplexed both men and women is why do some men prefer bigger boobs?

Biology

A study that was conducted back in 1968 found that the reason men are attracted to breasts has to do directly with their biology. More specifically, they narrowed it down to gene expression as well as some personality traits.

Boobs and Money

However, we really have to dig deep into the psychology of men to figure out why some of them are attracted to more busty women. As it turns out, men who want a woman with bigger breasts also want more money. A study conducted by psychologists Viren Swami and Martin Tovée tested 266 men from varying socioeconomic groups. They studied them in order to find out if there was a connection behind a person's wealth and their desired breast size.

As it turns out, men who are financially unstable prefer larger breast. Men who are financially well-off actually prefer the smaller breasts.

Hungry For Big Breasts

They also conducted a test on 66 hungry college students and 58 students who had recently eaten something. They were then given a series of animations showing women with varying breast sizes. They were then asked which ones they found more attractive. The results showed that the hungry men prefer larger breasts.

Large Breasts = Resources

They concluded that large breasts = resources. Let us explain.

Psychology Today refers to this phenomenon as “resource insecurity”, and that subconsciously, these men are actually attracted to the fact that boobs are a "signal of fat reserves, which in turn advertises access to resources". Therefore, the men lacking financial security and food were actually attracted to the potential resources that could come from large boobs.

Breast and Fertility

Researchers Christopher Burris and Arman Munteanu conducted another study that suggests that breasts have everything to do with fertility.

The Questionnaire

They tested 67 heterosexual college men and had them fill out a questionnaire about whether they wanted kids or not. They were also asked to draw their perfect breast size on a stick figure. The men who did not want to be fathers opted for smaller stick figure breasts.

Think About It

The next time one of you ladies catch a guy staring at your large breasts, before you slap him, consider that he might be broke, hungry, or want you to bear his children. Then, you can slap him.
