What do men think about Breast Implants?
Perhaps its where I’m looking but it seems that wherever we look, we are barraged with images of thin Barbie-like models with large implanted breasts.
Although very thin bodies with large chests very rarely happen in real life, magazines, billboards, models, and Victoria’s Secret catalogs have made this body type the expected ideal. Even clothing ads are increasingly showing less and less clothing and looking more and more like the artificial, airbrushed magazine covers.
After endless inundation of these images, it’s easy to see how so many people develop feelings of inadequacy. From the impression women receive from movies and magazines, I certainly understand how women might feel that men find it necessary to have a girlfriend with DD breasts and a 21-inch waist. However, I can assure you that this is not the case.
Much like people prefer real grass over Astroturf, there are numerous studies indicating that men prefer the look and feel of natural breasts to silicone. Both Astroturf and fake breasts look great from a distance and on TV but neither has the look and feel up close that men want to play on.
What are you really after?
Before you undergo this procedure, I would suggest you think long and hard about what you hope your implants will accomplish for you. Implants are probably not going to bring you much closer to what you really want.
If you want more male attention, implants may increase the quantity but there will be corresponding decrease in quality. You’ll get your biggest gains in approval among guys who are most prone to objectifying you, and less prone to treating you as their equal.
If you want to feel more sexy, the way to do it is to start appreciating the body you’ve have. If your mindset toward your body is negative, no change of appearance will ever eliminate that! If you think it will, you end up chasing an illusion.
If you’re in the habit of always finding fault with your body, you will never run out of faults to find. It’s a trap and breast augmentation won’t get you out of it.
