Male brain chemistry.

I am not interested in male boobs.

when you were a wee babe, boobs gave you nourishment…...pretty darn good stuff.
They give a woman’s body – personality. kinda perky, kinda timid…...etc.

wilma's avatar

I am not obsessed with them.
I have my own set, although they have gone through several changes over the years, they are mine and I like them.

A firm pert pair of funbags is a gift from the gods, TITan I believe.That & the wonderful parping sound they make when gently squeezed. I was never breastfed until my adult years, nudge nudge wink wink.

wilma's avatar

@ucme could you please describe this “parping sound”? I’m not sure my boobs make that sound, perhaps they are defective?

ucme's avatar

@wilma Oh sorry, I neglected to say that said “parp” is a fun sound effect resonating from the squeezer’s mouth, ie mine. K.

jazmina88's avatar

@ucme Doesnt that only work on blow up dolls???

ucme's avatar

@jazmina88 I’ve really no idea, you tell me? You seem to be the expert in such matters.

wilma's avatar

Ah, so it’s not actually the boob making the “parping sound”, but rather the mouth on said boob. Yes, I am aware of that sound. ;)

jazmina88's avatar

@wilma you husband parps too?? Am I missing out on something important??

wilma's avatar

@jazmina88 I’m thinking that sound usually happens with overenthusiastic, um… what’s the word I’m looking for? useage?

jfos's avatar

@ucme So you’re the parpetrator!

netgrrl's avatar

Without them, motorboats would be no fun.

dynamicduo's avatar

As a note, in my opinion big boobs are a pain in the ass. Like, literally a pain. They jiggle around all the time so you have to strap em down if you intend to do serious work without ending up with a rash. I am really hoping that by working on my farm and fitting up, I’ll go down a cup size.

casheroo's avatar

They are just fabulous.

Cruiser's avatar

What could be more fun than motor boating and parping!! lol!

BoBo1946's avatar

a hand full is enough!

rebbel's avatar

It is not only the sound they make, the sound of the word “Boob” is great too.
Boob, Boobs, Boobies, Bobo.
The person who coined the word Boobs must have been a big fan of them.

wilma's avatar

In the past I noticed that women are apt to refer to breasts as “boobs”, and men are more likely to call them “tits”. Are we moving away from that, and the more fun and female chosen word “boobs” is catching on with the men?

BoBo1946's avatar

hey, more than a hand full is wasted…really!

Facade's avatar

Because they jiggle and stuff and have nipples =)
@BoBo1946 So not true!

For thousands of years, buttocks were the primary sexual “presentation” for humans, as it is for all the rest of the higher primates. It is only in the last 150 years or so that interest has moved from the buttocks to the breast, and it’s no coincidence that this also marks the start of the Industrial Revolution. As women entered the workforce, bottle-feeding became the norm rather than the exception. Never being properly weaned, children – both male and female – acquired lifelong oral fixations, resulting in, for example, the growth of cigarette smoking on a massive scale.

I had a friend who identified as hetersosexual, but she would often sleep with women because she had a fetish for breasts, and the only way she could get access to them was to sleep with the women who had them. (She explained that it’s just not polite to play with a woman’s boobies and then go home.) I suspect that there are quite a few women out there like my friend who, as a result of their oral fixations, find themselves with a seemingly bizarre attraction to breasts without any concommitant attraction to the sexual organs of a woman.

BoBo1946's avatar

@Facade ummm…a matter of opinion my dear!

Facade's avatar

@BoBo1946 Just some playful banter ;)

BoBo1946's avatar

@Facade yah yah yah…and yah!

wilma's avatar

@SmashTheState Hmmm, I haven’t considered that perspective. Something to think about.

BoBo1946's avatar

@SmashTheState ummm…not me my friend! da butta!

Jude's avatar

I’m more of an arse girl.

BoBo1946's avatar

@jjmah nothing like a beautifully shaped “butta!” the kind you can sit a cup of coffee on!

Facade's avatar

@jjmah has a nice behind

Jude's avatar

@BoBo1946 and the shapely legs leading up to the beautifully shaped butta. :)

BoBo1946's avatar

@jjmah oh my gosh, Elizabeth, i’m having the big one!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Facade's avatar

How inappropriate lol

Jude's avatar

Yeah, I’m backing out of this thread (while wearing protective goggles).

Aster's avatar

Obsessed with big ones then they marry women with small ones.
Makes zero sense to me. Then after marrying the small ones they continue to rave about other women with big ones. Like my husband with those “lady” wrestlers.
Wake Up Call:
just marry women with cantaloupes, ok? Then everyone will be happier.

jfos's avatar

@Aster But it’s easier to find a woman with smaller breasts that has low self-esteem. This is crucial.~

Aster's avatar

@jfos WHAAAT???? Are you kidding me? I want to go into this later on ; gotta run.

jfos's avatar

@Aster Yes, I am kidding you.

CMaz's avatar

Food.

ucme's avatar

@jfos Yeah sure am.Maybe that’s why they’re sometimes referred to as hooters! Thanks for the mammaries, nice song that ;¬}

zenele's avatar

@wilma Tits sv. Boobs. Officially, tits should not be on the list of the seven things you can’t say on television… you know the drill: sounds like a nickname, sounds like a snack, etcetera.

Boobs are very friendly and gentle sounding – Consonants – but not guttural and a smooth oo sound in the middle.

If they were call Ferkarpenshlunkz, to paraphrase the Bard, would they still parp as sweet?

Jude's avatar

@zenele boobytits?

janbb's avatar

@dynamicduo Is that where your screen name comes from?

Aster's avatar

@ChazMaz You’re weird !

zenele's avatar

@Aster He’s not weird, he’s hungry. When men are hungry, it even preceeds sex. bob will make you a sandwich @ChazMaz – then come back and talk tits with us.

Facade's avatar

@zenele I’d love to see a discussion here about extended breast feeding

zenele's avatar

Let’s begin: my son nursed for 18 months, my daughter for 24. I never partook of it myself, but I know they enjoyed it – and I think it’s very healthy to go as long as you can. Easy to say though, I’m a guy.

I usually try to stay out of women’s discussions being wombless and all.

Facade's avatar

@zenele I think mothers should go as long as the child wishes as well. The nutritional value and bonding cannot be matched.

wilma's avatar

Thank you @SeventhSense that was cute, I got a good chuckle out of it.

BoBo1946's avatar

for Heaven sakes…it is just a protrusion at/around the chest area! loll

Breastfeeding is the best way….i was….and look how i turned out!

zenele's avatar

@BoBo1946 Oh, yeah – you blend.

BoBo1946's avatar

@zenele loll…thought you would like that!

tranquilsea's avatar

@zenele I can’t believe the number of women who flashed that guy!!! guys too

tranquilsea's avatar

Well, my hubby conforms with @SmashTheState ‘s evolutionary theory: he’s a butt guy. But he likes boobs too but not as much as butt’s.

A few years back I watched an interesting documentary on breasts. It was cool to hear women talk about what they thought about their breasts.

Aster's avatar

@tranquilsea You mean like those dreadful tv vagina lectures?
GAG !

tranquilsea's avatar

@Aster Actually, I’ve never seen the vagina monologues. I found this documentary touching.

zenele's avatar

@tranquilsea It links to a page of videos.

tranquilsea's avatar

I was logged in so I guess it goofed up. Here it is again (hopefully it works this time).

zenele's avatar

Nope. Is it on youtube?
