(NSFW) I think it's my first or second NSFW question: are you a perv if you look at the female mammary glands for more than two seconds before looking up?

Asked by zensky (13294 points ) January 15th, 2013

Or looking down, for that matter, should the woman happen to be standing on her head.

I never look at boobs until I have made eye contact for a long time first. If I think a lady is displaying her assets I purposefully look away.

Once I have held her gaze for a significantly long period I will do a vertical scan. I make it a point I am doing it and return to eye contact. So I don’t consider it pervy, as they know.

At Zensky, you are clearly the best topic creator on this site. I bow down in awe.

I wouldn’t call you a perv if your gaze was for a couple of seconds but if you talked to my breasts (as has happened often) rather than to my face for a long period of time or repeatedly then yes, you are being rather pervy and it’s very irritating. As @Imadethisupwithnoforethought suggests, subtlety is the best option.

Reminds me of one of my first questions

You’re not a perv, you’re a man. But I think it is highly dependent on how much they’re on display. The more there is cleavage shown the longer the glance.

I thought the general rule of thumb was 5.5 seconds.

@Imadethisupwithnoforethought Merci bien. This one was hard as the Mods didn’t like boobs in the Q.

I have a hard time not looking, and I really have no intentions of perving on women at all!

Some of those low cut dresses with the DD cleavage leave little to my virgin imagination.

I’m a woman, and sometimes it’s hard to look away from a magnificent display! But yeah, don’t fucking talk to my boobs.

Any guy that began a conversation by talking to my boobs and not my face irritated me.

If you are holding a conversation with a woman (or about to), don’t stare at her breasts. This is not rocket science. There’s a person in there, trying to communicate with you. Presumably you have some respect for that person. Govern yourself accordingly.

Mammary glands?

ucme's avatar

See, i’m very clever, my eyes dart between the eyes & the tits, never lingering for more than a second or two. That way I get the best of both, never looking in the slightest bit pervy…except maybe when I lick my lips & howl like a randy dog.

Shippy's avatar

It depends. The ‘business stare’ should not move further down than nose level. That means no looking at the business persons lips. If you meet a person and greet their breasts, that could be annoying. But a two seconds glance is OK, (but refer back to the business stare).

Are you a perv? I am afraid not, being a perv takes months, years, decades of thorough training. In the right hands.

zensky's avatar

@Haleth They didn’t like boobs in the Q. It was the first thing that came to me.

@Shippy I’m willing to learn. Got pen and paper right here. Shoot.

It’s not perverted just disrespectful. But when women take such trouble to display their breasts it would be ungentlemanly to ignore them.

zensky's avatar

I try to be gentlemanly.

tedd's avatar

It’s human instinct to glance (we’ve had that conversation/debate on here before). Unless you are actively thinking about trying to look or trying not to look, you will instinctively glance if a “pair” is on display.

Where it becomes rude, as many have stated here, is when they become the focal point beyond the person whom they belong to.

Shippy's avatar

@flutherother Ah but you are a gentleman no need to prove it!!

tranquilsea's avatar

Two seconds is a long time: count it out. I get and can get over a glance but two seconds… not so much. When I was single those guys automatically became the ones I wouldn’t consider dating.

Dash it all, I’ve had this song stuck in my head all day thanks to this thread.

Like Seinfeld once said, “It is like looking at the sun. You’re supposed to just take one peek and then look away!”

However…..As published in the New England Journal of Medicine and referenced in this article: 10 Minutes Of Staring at Boobs Daily Prolongs Man’s Life by 5 Years

“boob ogling is as healthy as going to the gym for 30 minutes daily”

@blueiiznh I read Playboy – not for the articles, but rather for strictly medicinal purposes.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@blueiiznh My goodness! Well then, don’t ever say I didn’t do anything to improve your health! EXTREMELY NSFW!!!

That there ^ should be worth a good 20.
What more could a guy want.

What happened to that thread about what kind of boobs you like? @WillWorkForChocolate just answered for me.
