Girl Hot vs. Guy Hot: Breast Implants

Boobs.

We are a society are fairly obsessed with them, and there’s no denying that—in pop culture, at least—it seems that bigger is better. Recently, however, Disney made headlines with a casting announcement for the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie detailing: ‘Must have real breasts. Do not submit if you have implants.’ Meanwhile, pneumatic celebrities like Heidi Montag, Pamela Anderson and England’s Jordan (Katie Price) are ridiculed for their inflated fun bags. And, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of breast enhancements actually fell last year.

Could it be: bigger is better…but real is best?

As a completely flat-chested gal myself—I mean, we’re talking mosquito bite-sized, too small to fit into a training bra here—I’ve always romanticized the idea of bigger breasts. D cup? No thanks. Fitting comfortably into a B? Dare to dream! But as much as I personally would love my mini-booblets to catch up to the rest of my body, the idea of going under the knife is less than appealing. (I’m waiting for US clinical trials to begin on Macrolane, a hyaluronic acid filler approved in the UK that lasts 12 – 18 months.) After all, not only do implants seem painful, but I’ve always worried about the message choosing to have the surgery would send.

So, on the heels of last’s week question about face versus body (guys mostly chose body, of course), I wondered: how do guys (and gals) really feel about implants?

The guys say:

Eric: I am vehemently opposed to voluntary breast augmentation. They are, however, a great dowsing rod for those guys interested in prying on women with low self esteem. Life seems to work out though since those dudes more than likely LOVE “fake tits” and the girls that they are prying on probably love attention from sketchy dudes.

Stan: I like things natural, but subtle implants that are done right can be a plus. That said, small and natural is way, way better than huge or misshaped or weird. This guy’s opinion: natural is better. I’ve never met a natural breast that I don’t like but have been really scared away by a bad boob job.

James: I personally do not like breast implants AT ALL. I’ve never liked the idea that there are artificial bags of saline sitting underneath skin and/or muscle tissue. I used to understand and be empathetic to women who wanted increased self-confidence but I believe that it’s gone too far and is out of control. Women who have suffered from mastectomies, well, that’s one thing but women who just lack self-confidence because our society tells women how they should look, that’s another thing. I would rather be with a self confident woman with a flat chest than an insecure woman with perfect breasts. Too many women these days are feeling the societal pressures to look good and will do whatever it takes to meet those imposed standards. I find myself not as interested in those women. So no, I hate fake breasts. I’ve dated a couple women that had them and could never get beyond the fact that they were there.

Bob: I think that fake tits can be hot. It just depends on a couple of different things. First of all, it depends on the quality of the job. I have seen great racks and I have seen weird looking/bad racks. My ex-girlfriend first had fake tits that weren’t really all that great. They were hard and you could tell that they were fake. However, she had them redone a few months back and now they are great! The look great (you wouldn’t know they were fake) and they feel great and taste even better. I think that the newer stuff that they are using is a lot better to the touch and feel.

Scott: I can understand the need for some women to want to enhance their breast size. I see nothing wrong with it as long as it is for the right reason.
To get a movie role? No.
To make yourself feel good about your body? Yes.
To please your partner? No. Get a new partner, it’s easier and cheaper, too.
Lift some saggy breast? Sure!
A cup to a C cup? Yes.
A cup to a D cup? Ok, yes.
C cup to a DDD cup and up? NO!!!! Those are Porn Boobs or Dick Shelves and are not attractive!
Breast implants need to be done by a qualified surgeon also. They need to look and feel natural. Natural is sexy. Plastic bumps with the space to iron your shirt between them are not.

Carl: I also think that it depends on the body type. I am not into, nor do I think that most guys into grotesquely large boobs in proportion to the body type. To me, it just looks weird if you have a small petite girl which humongous boobs. In summation, I think that they can be hot if they are done right and are appropriately sized for size and body type of the girl.

Andy: I like ‘em. I don’t see anything wrong with body modification as long as it is not too extreme. But then again I don’t know where exactly that line is drawn. Being gay I don’t think I have ever intended to touch one on purpose but I have accidentally and it wasn’t a bad thing. My only issue is that I always feel they are looking at me. Sort of like the paintings on Scooby Doo where the eyes move.

Jones: I LOVE the look… But they feel too hard and weird. Fortunately, my girlfriend has great boobs… And they are real!

Marcel: I hate breast implants. They look fake, feel fake and you can tell they’re fake right away. Oh, did I mention that I hate fake boobs?

Nick: They’re gross.
1. They are hard to the touch – in a bad way, it’s not an ass.
2. They leave an unexplainable gap between breasts – humans deal in universal symmetries for beauty.
3. They appear unnaturally circular – sometimes a scar shows where they stuffed something in.
Basically they excite 14 year old boys and men who think like 14 year old boys. All things equal I would take a flat chested woman over the best boob job in the world any day of the week. It’s like collagen. It further makes you look like a monster ladies. Men are growing savvy to it. Natural is better.

Lane: Implants: Fun to play with, but not to marry.

George: Mind you, there are exceptions to every rule, but for me, ideally, I would prefer natural. Not necessary because of the implants themselves, but more so because of what it represents to me. Girls who get implants, tend do it because of a lack of confidence, or inner peace with themselves. So, it’s a little bit of a turn off to see that they take the quick fix, and treat the problem, rather than cure it with self reflection, ending with inner peace and confidence. If you were to interview all girls with implants, I’m sure you would find that common denominator. So in my conclusion: Fun for fucking, but not for loving.

Brandon: Hate them. Most plastic surgery is unnecessary and looks bad. Breasts should be natural. That’s why they feel good. That’s what’s sexy to me. As long as yours are bigger than mine, I’m happy.

And as for the girls:

Jodi: I think they are fine if the girl really has small boobs and wants them for herself, though I don’t like the really large obvious fakes. I can’t attest to the touching factor! I did touch my friend Ingrid’s after she got hers back in college and they felt very strange but it was right after surgery. So, I think they are fine if they are natural looking.

Jess: I have no problem with them if someone is getting them in order to improve their confidence but I do think they should be done on the natural side and not on a Heidi Montag scale. As for guys, I’ve heard mixed reviews. I dated a guy in college that told me he would never marry a girl who had fake boobs…but I’ve had guy friends say that they don’t care as long as they look somewhat natural.

Suzy: I don’t have anything against women who have them, however I instantly judge them as a sign of insecurity. I’m proud of being a B cup and wouldn’t change it for anything in the world! I would never want to change my physical look to please or attract that kind of man.

Jen: I’ve seen a set of fake barely b cups that looked amazing. She’d been a negative a before and they were a vast improvement. Small, perky and cute.

Wendy: All natural for me, please!!

Sarah: Personally, I think if breast implants make you feel better about yourself—go for it, but please stick to a natural size for your body frame. I would never get them myself—I prefer smaller/ natural boobs. I feel thinner with smaller boobs, and I would prefer for boys to look at my face instead! But whatever makes you happy—go for it!

    I love large breasts. I hate hard unnatural feeling skin on plastic… Jessica Rabbit look is hot… as long as they feel real. On breast pills I went to a DD, but gained weight, now I am down to a B and I hate it. I want the sexy bikini breasts… Seems the only compromise between my abs and my breast is to get them done… wish there was another alternative like altering my genes or eating for breast success… hmmm

    • Michelle

      Hey Ashley… I just noticed your comment and how you said you wish there were an alternative to surgery. Well you can try brava.com. I have a friend who tried it and it took her about a year of using it but she went from an A to a C. It’s a device that causes your cells to grow so you get bigger, but it’s your real growth. I’m actually using it myself. It is slow, I’m gonna admit that, but it just takes a little patience. You can also try fat grafting augmentation which is a recent development. Watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqBqXVwwIL4 It explains everything. Pretty cool, huh? See, there are things out there you didn’t know about. ;) Spread the word!

  • trey

    damm babe u got big boobs i wanna touch them

  • gf got boob implants

    i personally cant stand a girl with boobs under a c cup, but thats just me i’ve always been a boob man.
    i was really worried when my gf said she was getting implants after she lost a lot of weight and dropped from a DD to a C which ended up leaving them quite saggy. when i finally got to see them after surgery they looked natural and i have to say amazing and actually felt somewhat natural. if you get a cheap boob job from a dodgy docter then of course the implants will often end up looking horrible, fork out some extra cash and get tear drop implants and see a good docter, it pays out in the end. i <3 boob implants, never thought i would say that a few months ago…

    • Lily

      Tear drop implants are not good. They have a tenancy to flip upside down. Good luck when that happens. And also, it’s your right to dislike small breasts, but you don’t have to act like women with small breasts aren’t human beings. Saying things like “I can’t stand women under a C cup” really shows your lack of maturity. Your girlfriend and other big breasted girls can have guys like you—poor girls:(

  • recent post op

    enjoyed the article! tho i feel i gotta put my two cents in. maybe im a bit of a drama queen, but so be it, im only 19 after all.

    suzy- pre op, i would dream of a b cup. its no secret many women get implants to attract men, but there are plenty of us out there who did it for ourselves. i have a very tall, athletic and broad shouldered build. after years of anorexia b/c of my negative bust, i found implants to be a life-saving alternative.

    i’m not a huge fan of male attention, believe it or not, but i am a fan of just being able to throw on a tank top at home by myself and not feel like a freak. i used to spend hours trying to find anything to make my body look feasible. i opted for a small implant increase, a full b maybe c. im pleased with the results. i can understand why guys are turned off by them but i really don’t care. if you haven’t been there you can’t judge. before the op my social anxiety was crippling my future. with my implants i am a happy healthy young girl who is finally letting my personality shine. so yeah, thats my story! :D

    • Michelle

      Hey. I just wanted to comment on your post because I can really relate to you. I get so tired of reading posts from people who are judgmental, saying that people who want to change something about their bodies are selfish or vain. They obviously don’t understand what it’s like to wake up every day and not be able to look at yourself in the mirror because of something you don’t like about your body. I understand how a certain insecurity about yourself can ruin your confidence because I’ve been there, too. I’m really happy for you that you did what was right for you regardless of what other people say and I’m really happy to hear that your confidence is shining! :)

  • Eileen

    Not to comment on the ethics of boob jobs – I’m really not equipped since I’m naturally a size I like – but a lot of period movies/tv shows don’t want actresses with implants because you can tell, and it ruins the effect. Lots of 21st century women have fake breasts; no 18th or 19th century women did (and in those costumes, you can tell).

  • TheDobster

    REAL men prefer natural, even if small. The breasts and vagina are the two things that women have and men don’t. You can tell by the comments that the gals don’t understand that the FEEL, FEEL, FEEL of real breasts are what blow real guys away. Guys who want to just “look at some big jugs” are the stupid ones who don’t know anything about a savory, sensual, sexual experience with a woman. GIRLS, REAL A’s ARE BETTER THAN ANY SIZE FAKES. WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I really want big breasts, because mine are so small and unattractive, i want to have breasts like these http://healthybeauty2.blogspot.com/2011/04/everything-you-did-not-know-about.html

  • Edward

    I hate small breasts. HATE them. I found this site by looking for a way to get over my girlfriends’ flat chest–so far no luck. Guess I’m just a shallow prick; I apologize, but what can I do? I’ll let her down easy, won’t say why of course. No matter how gorgeous a woman is if she is small chested, then I want nothing to do with her.

    • jake

      Interesting , why were you with her in the first place? Just curious

    • Lily

      I’m glad for big breasted women–because they’re the ones that attract guys like you. Us small breasted girls will continue to get all the intelligent, mature guys!:)

    • pauldare

      There has actually been studies that prove direct correlation between status and taste in breast size. The wealthier and more educated seem to prefer women with lithe bodies and natural breast, even small. That’s not to say that watching it in p+rn or whatever is something that one would not do where any size breast are paraded. However, that is not what would be attractive on the level.

      Here is one study:
      Those who preferred the small figure tend to persevere in their work. They are not cynical about authority and reported coming from an upper-class background..it very well may be a preferred type among members of the upper class (Moore, Stunkard, & Srole, 1962) as suggested by the present data.

      Also note that the models that make millions have small natural breast. How much do porn stars make? Really. Women with small breast and fit thin bodies. Who look like Athena are built like the gods.

  • Peter

    I love breast implants and firm and sexy augmented breasts rather than ugly sagging and hanging tits. My wife went from B to D cup 8 years ago which was the best thing she ever did. I love them like crazy and to touch them is much more exciting then hanging tits.

  • A Watcher

    Watch the heavens, watch the sky, watch as the days go passing by. “It” will come this I know because a watcher told me so. Now I know what I must do for I have become a watcher too. When you know the end is near, watch and wait for “it” to appear. The watchers know things not of this world. They have been watching man since they were put on this earth. Watch “it’s” coming, will be here soon. Now you’ve been told the watchers are here, watch and wait because this all you can do unless you become a watcher to.

    Remember the watchers are watching you!!!

  • Dr D

    Women get breast implants for themselves not to please men. While I agree with your point that women seem to be targeting larger and larger breast implant sizes, not all breast implant results look the same. In some cases you would be unlikely to be able to tell that implants reside therein. It is just that women seem to be interested in “more obvious results” these days.

    This is not always the case however.

  • PA in GA

    Fake boobs are horrid. I agree that they can provide a HUGE benefit for cancer survivors, but unless that’s the case….. leave ‘em be. The best feeling breast has imperfection they are not “perfectly shaped”. Women, if your BF/ Husband has any reservations, LISTEN TO HIM. It’s him that will be doing the most fondling and if he doesn’t like ‘em they will be left alone.

  • Jewels

    I’m sooo glad I dodged the fake boob bullet.When I was 18 I wanted them cause I was only a B cup.I was also only about 108 pounds too.
    (I was somewhat anorexic)
    Now I’m 130 pounds and my boobs are up to a D!

    And though I love them bigger,they were cute and perky before too.
    I’d much rather still have them that way then to have hard,non moving objects sloshing in my chest.
    My sister got fake boobs and hers look soooo fake.When she bends you can see ripples and they look like hard baseballs sitting on her chest.

    Ladies,exercise,eat right,and take care of yourselves.You don’t need fake boobs.As you can see from the comments here,they only attract guys who are jerks.

  • somebody

    wow in a way some of these comments offend me. I say just love who you are no matter your size. But to say that “big breast girls deserve jerks like you” or “Only big breasts women want someone immature like you” is completly wrong. I am natrually a 28 DDD and i’m 119 pounds (and yes they’re 100% natrual never had surgery in my lifei’m to scared) i’m being told that becuase of my size i automtically look like a porn star and mature guys won’t prefer me??? someone forgot to mention that to my boyfriend then… I can’t help what i was born with and i always dress elegant but modest, not slutty, but apparently all it takes to be judged as a bimbo is to have big boobs??? come on now really…

  • Amy

    I love my implants! They are a DD, I am 5’3″ and 120 lbs. My breasts are soft and I look killer in a bikini. Worth every penny of the $7,000 ( a gift from my then boyfriend)
    Ladies who “hate” on those who have implanted do so for many reasons not the least of which is jealousy. You can’t afford them, you’re too scared to go “under the knife”, “REAL men like small breasts” etc etc etc. keep telling yourself that.

  • Suthap Klomrod

    Well a new website call BoostYourBust says you can and thousands of women have already used there strategies.

    Now it’s a pretty bold claim so I wanted to take this ‘Magic Formula’ for a test drive and see for myself if a natural option works.

    So to start with I went to the site and purchased a copy of the ebook so I could put it to the test over the coming weeks

    Reading the ebook I was pleasently surprised as it was very clear and easy to follow and in theory the advice made sense.

    I learned…Boost Your Bust – An Honest Review http://boostyourbust.com/?hop=25151020#ic

    They make a big difference to the figure. Men will choose to go out with a larger-breasted woman who is not as attractive as a gorgeous flat-chested pancake woman, in order to feel that they are not dating one of the guys who cleans their office windows and puts up stucco on their vacation houses.

  • Chelse and Elaine Adams

    The key with mastectomy is to remember that 20% of all mastectomy/chemotherapy patients had benign breast tumours and did not need surgery or treatment, owing to the only 85% rate of accuracy with mammograms. Radiographic testing and sonograms should be used along with needle biopsies. Lumpectomy and radiation are as effective as mastectomy and chemotherapy and have similar five-year survival rates for stage 1 and 2 cancer. Only advanced cancer benefits from chemotherapy and mastectomy. Still, 65% of cancer patients die from chemo, not from cancer.
