The act of squeezing a breast is like an infant trying to get more milk. Watch cats, they do the same thing with their paws when they nurse. I think men are all just children and see women as their surrogate mothers (fulfilling their needs.)
I try not to overanalyze it, considering I'm getting as much enjoyment out of it as he does

Exactly. Its just another component to big-boob shaming. Some people have to make it sound like some weird fetish so they look down on guys who prefer larger breasted women. That way they can conclude that those types of guys are deviants, low class, dumb, immature - whatever negative attributes you can dream up. Women with small/average breasts get to be classy, healthy, trim, sporty - look better in clothes, etc etc. And then guys who white knight for this crowd will say big natural boobs are "icky" because they sag. It's totally okay for a woman to not like a guy because he isn't tall enough or manly enough, but if a guy were to ever let on that he prefers one woman over another because of her bra size, all hell breaks loose and the rush to paint both him AND her as lower class citizens is on.

It's also just plain creepy to sexualize the idea of breastfeeding a child; that's right up there with sexualizing mammograms and pelvic exams. Thankfully, most people are mature and mentally balanced enough to compartmentalize sexy time breasts and utilitarian breasts.

I like big, but I'll take small and natural over big and fake anyday.

I think there is a high correlation with fake breasts and psychological issues relating to self esteem and sexualized body image that I'd rather not deal with in a partner.

Plus fake is fake. I would rather it a normal tasting apple than some intensely artificial apple-flavored substance.

I think anyone who has ever nursed a baby knows babies don't squeeze them in a desperate attempt to get out every last drop. Who comes up with this stuff, lol?

It is very creepy, but they don't care. Whenever a story comes up in Current events about a woman breastfeeding in public and someone complaining, there will always be a quite a few people who try to draw a connection with people being okay with sexualized breasts being hypocrites because they feel uncomfortable around a woman breastfeeding. I personally don't care if a woman breastsfeeds in public - uncovered or not, but I understand some people don't want to see it - but I am really disturb by those who try to draw some sort of connection between the two to conclude everyone should feel the same way about it.

The whole thing about implants being an illusion is a petty argument too. I can understand not liking "fake" breasts, but thinking about it that much is going way overboard, IMO. The imagery of a breast is the outer view of them. I've never heard of any getting turned on thinking about the fatty tissue underneath whether they sit next to a bag of fluid or not. To me an illusion would be a stuffed bra or extremely padded one.

Personally I just get tired of these type of threads myself, since it tends to pit women against each other, we are all different not one of us is alike, so there no right or wrong!

I went with a friend to a big trade show in S. California.
As we entered for the first time, I noticed a young lady just ahead of us, tottering on a too-tall pair of heels and too overloaded with silicone. She was obviously a show girl, hired to hang around and look glamorous.
She looked like she had been shot in the back by a couple of rockets.

My friend, who had attended the show for years, said "You won't see a pair of natural breasts again until we leave. By then, you will really miss them, too."

And he was right.

While I never paid all that much attention before, I did afterwards, and I'm sure there are women with good judgement and there are surgeons who offer good advice when it comes to breast augmentation. I think every woman has the right to do what she wants with her own body as well.

But that doesn't mean I must admire their bad decisions. I don't like a set of over-sized phony boobs any more than I like overdone tattoos, overdone makeup, or overdone hair styles. That's just me. I like my women natural, plain in their natural beauty, and beautiful in their natural differences. A bit of lipstick and a little mascara on a clean face is nice, but even that really isn't needed when any woman is confident in her looks.

Ironically, my brother is married to a former beauty queen. She's never had any plastic surgery, and she is gorgeous when she's wearing no makeup, but she's never confident until she 'has her face on', her hair is piled and sprayed stiff as a board, and every detail of her clothing an ornament is perfect.

I like her. Underneath all of that, she's a sweet-hearted woman, and she treats my brother very well. If I was married to her I would have a hard time with all of that stuff, but he doesn't, and I don't have to be around her every day, so it doesn't matter to me. My woman owns no makeup, no perfume, and does nothing but keep clean and comb her hair. That's her way, and I'm glad it is, because it suits me fine too.

I think that being at ease with one's self is what's important. I'm sorry for those who aren't, and I don't think major body modification is the way most of us will find internal peace with ourselves, but at the same time, I'm sure some do find that inner peace after they 'put on their face' whatever and however that means to them.
