You may find it lousy but people around us think to research subjects like why do guys like breasts so much. As a man I can simply answer: it is so obvious. It is so natural. It is because it looks beautiful, stimulating, enticing and accentuating and every man wants to see such big things that lull his mind every now and then. It reminds him to finish his unfinished business with his wife or any partner, if I am not wrong.
But last night I was reading some research works, studies, findings and suddenly it made me feel that human body is nothing but a chain of chemically linked structure, particularly our brain. Brain is the big bank for so many types of chemical releases that make us happy or make us addictive. I think it is also an addiction for men to love breasts.
It is really wonderful to know that men and women are so close to each other for their sexual and emotional needs and satisfaction. I enjoyed reading that past research has proven that women do in fact enjoy attention on their breasts.
I also find it interesting that humans are also among the very few animals that have sexual intercourse face-to-face, “looking into each other’s eyes.” Hence it is really wonderful to see the undulation of the wonderful breasts, crowned up with nipples.
I find Dr. Larry Young, who is one of the world’s leading social neuroscientists, quite interesting and logical. He says: “biologically speaking” the human male’s obsession with breasts is “pretty weird”. “Men are the only male mammals fascinated by breasts in a sexual context,” He also says: “And women are the only female mammals whose breasts become enlarged at puberty, independent of pregnancy. We are also the only species in which males caress, massage and even orally stimulate the female breasts during foreplay and sex.”
He and his friend scientist Alexander have a point of view that there is some neurological process that links it to the same brain mechanisms used to promote a powerful bond between mother and child.
“When a woman gives birth, her newborn will engage in some pretty elaborate manipulations of its mother’s breasts,” they say. “This stimulation sends signals along nerves and into the brain. There, the signals trigger the release of a neurochemical called oxytocin from the brain’s hypothalamus.”
“This oxytocin release eventually stimulates smooth muscles in a woman’s breasts to eject milk, making it available to her nursing baby,” they said. “But oxytocin release has other effects, too. When released at the baby’s instigation, the attention of the mother focuses on her baby. The infant becomes the most important thing in the world.”
Young and Alexander conclude that a man’s obsession with breasts is far from creepy and is actually “an unconscious evolutionary drive” that helps humans forge loving, nurturing bonds.
The authors also say that oxytocin and dopamine act together to help “imprint” the newborn’s face, smell and sounds into the mother’s reward circuitry, making breastfeeding and nurturing a pleasurable experience that will motivate her to keep doing those activities to strengthen the mother-infant bond.
“This bond is not only the most beautiful of all social bonds, it can also be the most enduring, lasting a lifetime,” they said. Further they said that when a lover touches, massages or nibbles a woman’s breasts, it sparks the same process of brain events as nursing.
It is very interesting to read them and it was also very interesting to know that there were Researchers Roy Levin, of the University of Sheffield, and Cindy Meston, of the University of Texas who surveyed 301 participants, which included 153 women, on breast stimulation, and found about 82 percent of women were even more sexually aroused when their breasts or nipples were stimulated and nearly 60 percent ask to have their nipples touched.
In fact, man-woman relationship is mysterious in nature but they are sexually dependent on each other which makes it more magical and fulfilling.
