If Men had Boobs

Men get off lightly on the body maintenance thing. I sometimes think they should pay us rent for all the oogling, touching and sex stuff. We are the ones who maintain the hair, face, skin, body that they desire. They don’t have nearly as much work to their own bodies, shave, wash and that’s about it. It’s not fair.
I tried to ease up on the whole thing. My exhusband didn’t like my unshaved legs. I was ok about them. They still worked for all the regular stuff of life. I could still wash dishes, do laundry and that other stuff. I just skipped that extra 15 minutes of scraping my skin off. Nair is better but it seems to miss spots and the hair grows back far too soon. Plus, if you leave it on too long you get weird marks on your skin.
Not every body part requires that kind of work. Breasts just pretty much keep to themselves. Put on the boulder holder in the morning and they’re ok for another day. The problem is when we actually look at them. The magazines tell us how much we sag after 25, 30… 40 (shudder). We are told how unattractive our boobs are once they lose the teenaged perkiness. We don’t live in bubbles, some of us have saggy boobs with stretch marks and less than perfect shape and peaches and cream skin is something we think we can still remember.
What if men had boobs. Suddenly, they’re faced with the business end of boobs rather than the sex toy side. It’s their turn to cope with breastfeeding, breast cancer and bra shopping. I bet that would change their outlook. Let’s see them walk around (jog?) with those massive DD cups they lust over. It’s different when you’re attached to them. Much simpler to just admire them on someone else.
True, the cosmetics, beauty and fashion industry is catching on. Realizing men have been coasting along on aftershave and soap for far too long. But, you can see a huge difference in the beauty aisle geared to women and the small shelf space in the toothpaste aisle set aside for men’s beauty treatments.
I think men should take more care with their appearance. After all, we have to look at them. If they want us to stay looking they better do something about it. Of course, some of them look just fine to me.
