Submission + - Male Researchers Reveal the Real Reason Why Men Love Breasts (medicaldaily.com) 2

An anonymous reader writes: Two male researchers have attempted to answer the age-old question: why are men obsessed with women's breasts?
The authors say that one of the reasons why heterosexual men are so fascinated by women's breasts is because of a simple hormone released during breastfeeding that helps form the powerful bond between mother and baby. This hormone is also responsible for creating the evolutionary drive for strong nurturing bonds between lovers, according to the authors.
Dr. Young, who is one of the world's leading social neuroscientists, wrote that "biologically speaking" the human male's obsession with breasts is "pretty weird".
