Are Penises to a Woman Like Breasts Are to a Man?


Man's crotchAre women as fascinated by a man's penis as men are by a woman's breasts? We've all seen the latter case played out in the movies and in real life: a scantily clad, large-breasted woman walks down the street seemingly oblivious to all the heads turning to watch her, giving credence to the stereotype that men are boob-fascinated junkies.

What you don’t see is a man walking down the street oblivious to all of the women staring at his package outlined in his snug-fitting pants. Because it doesn’t happen (often). Now, a man’s rear end is a different story. A man with a nice ass can get heads turning too.

Another difference? Men, and some women, will freely discuss the size and shape of a woman’s breasts. As in, "Wow, those things are huge." Or, "Those are definitely not real. They defy gravity."

But most likely, those same people will not sit around and talk about the size and shape of a man’s penis. Unless, of course, the penis being discussed is an outlier. Outlier penises get talked about all of the time, by both men and women. You know, the really small ones and the really enormous ones.

Maybe the conversations are lopsided because the penis is so innately sexual. Breasts can be sexual too, but really the corresponding anatomical part to the penis would be the vagina. And nobody's talking about other women's vaginas. Well, almost nobody.

And as long as we're talking about penises, I have a confession to make. Sometimes, I do look at a man's crotch. My husband's, that is. Just wanting to make sure that he's happy to see me.

Have you ever checked out a man's fully clothed crotch before?

Nope.  I have no urge to go around crotch checking men. :)

No way. I don't think they're an attractive body part. I'd much prefer to ogle some boobs.

I mean... um...

The male anatomy isn't attractive.

Penises r def not attractive.. I'm with ranaaurora I'd rather look at a nice set of boobs lol not mine of course cuz I despise them.. I want a boob job someday.

Just a couple of outliers - there were a couple of guys in college that I think probably needed help getting dressed, and then one guy that I interviewed for a personal assistant, of all things - but he was dumber than a bag of rocks and pretty much figured he'd put his best asset front and center.  Since that thing couldn't type, I didn't hire him - but he ended up working in the office anyway as a temp in another department.

All the time! 


Although I'm more of a butt-checker.

My husband walked by and grabbed my boob. And my sister-in-law asked me "What is it with men and grabbing boobs, it's not like we go around grabbing them!" But the thing is I do all the time, and I like to look at it too.

I find myself consistently looking at my husbands package.  My eyes go there first when I see him, and then up to his eyes, I don't know why.  I also have been known to walk by and give him a stroke as he's doing dishes.  Of course, he needs to be rewarded for doing dishes, haha.

You don't see many snug fitting pants for men anymore which I find sad. That said, I do have to say I check out the butt. Not that other areas aren't nice...don't get me wrong. And of course, a sexy voice (especially a sexy accent) will totally hook me.

To done degree yes... when I was single I would tell men to pull it out so I could see if it was worth my time.
