Are Men Saying “Ta-Ta” to Ta-Ta’s?
For years it was a rite of passage for pre-adolescent boys. To find and peruse your father's or older brother's cache of Playboy magazines. There were some kids in my neighborhood who built a "clubhouse" out of old boards and newspapers and invited other boys to join. It was a place where curious boys could store pilfered Playboy and talk about girls who we had finally begun to notice actually existed.
The thing that fascinated us the most? Boobs! Ta-Tas! The Lovely Lumps! We were all about women's breasts.
But now, the internet is apparently changing all that. Now all types of porn--from soft to hard core--are available with a click of the mouse. And millennials find breasts less--titillating.
A recent issues of Playboy cites a study done by the web site Pornhub which found that 18-24 adults are 20% less likely to search for breast-related content while their 55-64 year-old counterparts were 17% more likely. The research also discovered that only 1.5% of total searches on the site were for boobs.
Don't get it twisted, boobs are still very popular. The 4th most-searched item daily is "big natural boobs" and there are millions of searches for breasts every day.
But could it be that men are becoming more enlightened? That there's coming a day when the first thing a man notices about a woman is her eyes instead of her chest? A day when he'll value her brain more than her boobs?
The day that happens is the day Dolly Parton sees her toes.
