After careful consideration regarding this thread, I came across this pic and immediately realized I was concerned that he may strain himself or the bands might snap. Sure hope that doesn't happen...

She probably needs help standing up, or sitting up for that matter.

Seriously, guys, I would hate to be built like that! It has to be so painful and such a strain on the shoulders. And then those custom made bras cost a fortune (or so I hear).

And imagine those days when she might want to fade into the background, and to be an unnoticed observer of what is going on around her! NOT gonna happen.

I'd like to say their fake, but they do look real. Poor girl...what a chore to drag those around. Interesting how the gals view it compared to you guys, eh? Very pretty girl, tho.

I question the study design:
Quote:
Researchers at three hospitals in Frankfurt, Germany did an in-depth analysis of 200 healthy males over a period of five years. Half the volunteers were instructed to ogle at the breasts of women daily, while the rest were told to refrain from doing so.
Yeah, RIGHT....
