Hmm…Feed Starving Children Or Pay For Breast Implants?

Quite the conundrum if you are looking for a worthy charity to donate some holiday money to.  At this website, http://myfreeimplants.com, (which SD shared with me) you have a great opportunity to help the self esteem of a poor, small breasted woman. Sure, saving lives is kind of important but without self esteem, who even wants to live?

As near as I can tell, you pick a woman that you find attractive and donate some money which goes into a pool of money for her implants. Depending on what you donate, I think you get e-mails or maybe photo’s from the needy woman. I honestly don’t understand why you would give money to a complete stranger for a boob job but, apparently, many do.

I don’t want to judge these girls but the ones on the main page look relatively skeezy. (Maybe they are trying to look “seductive”). It’s a little bit of a mean spirited set up as even unattractive women can post on this site. I don’t know how I found it but I saw a link that had a girl that was up to around $42 after a full year. Wow, that must really make her feel good about herself.

Here is the bigger issue for me. While I understand why men like big boobs (bigger always equals better), I am not sure what is in it for women. Are you really so desperate for attention that this is the best plan you can come up with? I realize it is a body image thing and I am not trying to be critical but what is the mental payoff? Why is a man ogling your big chest a good thing?

Besides that, a lot of these implants just do not seem attractive to me. Here is a picture of a “success” story:

C’mon…it looks like two of the little monsters from Aliens have climbed into her chest and are about ready to burst out. (She does look a little like Sigourney Weaver). Personally, I don’t see anything attractive about this. Maybe they are just really, really new and they have to be broken in first. I don’t know.

I realize this is a bad example and I imagine a lot of women have had much more successful and natural looking results. Still, what if you don’t? Just Google “bad boob jobs” and take a look at some of the train wrecks. I just don’t see how it is worth it…even for free.

Still, I am a hypocrite because I like a robust bosom, like most men. So, I don’t know what the answer is. It just seems that science would have come up with a better, more natural way to do this. So, because it is the holiday season and I care, here is what I will do. Send me your “after” photos and I will tell you whether they look good or not. I am a very impartial judge so you can trust my opinion. (I am sure my wife will love this idea).

Anyway, I will step out of the way now and let Liz educate you on the dangers of breast implants…silicone or otherwise. Prepare for the firestorm.

EDIT: Per Liz’s request, Dr. Basil Singer (obviously gay)

    Having been implanted (1982) and explanted (1995) and spending untold hours scouring the Internet on reputable web sites (Medline, research sites, etc) I consider myself somewhat an expert on this subject. I get the total evolutionary biology argument: look, nature designed us to be sexual beings and to look, well, desirable. Physical attraction is part and parcel to the whole procreation business. What I don’t get is why the brain (the real sex organ here) does not get more recognition for being S-E-X-Y. I can appreciate a buff or sculpted bod as much as the next guy, but that does not translate into reckless abandon if the brains don’t back up nature’s art. I’ll go a little (actually, a lot ) further here: the sexiest men on Earth, IMHO, are not sexy in the traditional sense, but are supersonically sexy due to their mental prowess. I offer: M.I.T. professor Seth Lloyd (who scores extra points for being a little eccentric), theoretical physicists Michio Kaku and Brian Greene, and a well deserved posthumous award to Carl Sagan. If I were a much younger woman, the top spot would be awarded to Basil Singer (Ph.D. in Quantum Chaos) of whom I have instructed TannerLeah to provide a photo (see what I mean girls?). Oops, lust can cause us to drift off topic. Back to the implant business: my advice is don’t do it, don’t do it, don’t do it! All those wasted hours spent sifting through anecdotal testimonials, research studies, medical journals…it all boils down to this: you are placing two substantially sized foreign objects in your body that don’t belong there. Why would you want to tax your immune system like that? I did, and I paid a hefty price: permanent disability. I have learned that sometimes it is our flaws (perhaps a less ample bosom) that make us so endearing and our assets (bigger brains) that are the real turn-on’s. Now let me get back to ogling Brian May’s photo in Bang!, the wonderful book TannerLeah gave me for Chanukah. Now, that is sexy.

      Amen, sister. If people would only appreciate me for my brain instead of my studly body. (A curse I must live with).

    Comedians are sexy too!!

  3. Yup. I can’t believe there are actually women who signed up in that site. It’s degrading to women.

      Plastic – I was confused by your comment and then see your link to plasticsurgeryfortworth.org. Sarcasm? Irony? I thought I could find out if I clicked your link. So, I click it while on a break at a meeting today and the photo of the boobs covered by gloved hands popped up. Still confused I sat for a moment and pondered when a voice from over my shoulder says, “That’s interesting”. That voice just happened to be an HR Rep. You should really warn people when you post boob shots. A little NSFW would be helpful.
