I seem to remember some comedian mentioning this in one of his routines. Carlin comes to mind. Does this ring any bells with anyone?

Why would I need to use the hypothesis to explain male attraction to boobies? There can be multiple threads of attraction that run along-side each other.

Adult humans have a natural attraction to infants; to care for them. Perhaps the same type of attraction can be exploited by adult women in their male counter-parts. Such that men are attracted to their boobies, but also feel an explicit desire to care-for the woman as if she were an invalid.

As for Ryan S: Use that to explain the male attraction to boobies.
