Boobs and science. Two of the many things dudes are definitely into.
Breasts are great, they’re soft and bouncy. Full of character and diversity. They’re also bloody interesting and life-giving so hell yeah, they should be explored in every way.
A team of researchers did just that and recently published their breast findings in the journal Evolution and Human Behaviour.
They concluded that it might be shape and not in fact size that the male brain considers when checking out their lady friend’s bosom. They conducted a survey on men from countries such as, Brazil, Cameroon, the Czech Republic and Namibia.
Basically they showed them pictures of firm and not so firm boobs in varying sizes.
The results revealed that the majority of guys preferred medium-sized, firm breasticles. Apparently it all has to do with fertility and how we are sometimes hardwired to seek a mate based on their eggs and swimmers.
So say the researchers: “Breasts become less firm with age and parity, and breast shape could thus also serve as a marker of residual fertility. Therefore, cross-culturally, males are hypothesized to prefer breast morphology that indicates both high potential and residual fertility.”
Boobs. So much to learn.
