The human ethology of natural and augmented breasts

Following on from my recent post, here is a paper from James Doyle and a colleague:

“Natural and augmented breasts: Is what is not natural most attractive?”

James Doyle has commented previously at my blog, on a post on “Human female proceptive behaviour“.

James Doyle’s Academia.edu page is here.

These are my posts at this blog that touch on human ethology, even tangentially.

  1. One might do well to see whether the characteristics of “inflated” breasts are similar to those of nursing breasts. It strikes me that my wife’s had a few of those characteristics when she was nursing our children, and I half wonder if the attraction to the silicone queens has something to do with a subconscious desire to be with an obviously fertile woman.

      That is an interesting point.

      I have wondered if the appeal (to me at least) of young women with children (or even the “MILF”) may be her obvious fertility and femininity. Of course – as was pointed out to me once – the children are not yours and she is clearly “taken”. On the other hand, there is the seduction option and so on (immoral but perhaps instinctive.)

      I have wondered too if the adaptive purpose of the hymen is to be an “honest signal” of youth and availability for a pair bond.

    Utterly repulsed by those that aren’t natural
