Breast fetishism which is also known as mastofact, breast partialism, or mazophilia is to have a fetish that's mostly focused on the female's breasts.

Scientific explanation for non-paraphilic attraction

Some scientists have suggested the theory that, the cleavage is a sexual signal that imitates the image of the cleavage, which according to "Morris" in The Naked Ape is also unique to humans, primates, as a rule, having much more focus on the buttocks.

Other scientists have theorised that humans' permanently enlarged breasts, (in contrast to primates' breasts, which only enlarge during ovulation), to allow females to "solicit male attention and investment even when they are not really fertile".

These theories have been linked to be an example of a contagious thought spreading throughout society, and that breasts are features that have grown to influence human sexuality rather than serve an exclusive maternal function.

Alternative opinions

Some feminists have argued that examples of breast fetishism have been found going back to the neolithic era, with the goddess shrines of Catal Huyuk, in modern Turkey). The archaeological excavations of the town in c. 1960 revealed that the walls of the shrines were adorned with disembodied pairs of breasts that appeared to have "an existence of their own".

Some authors from the USA have made the statement that attraction to the female breast is a sexual fetish, that it is the American fetish-object of choice, and that breast fetishism is predominantly found in the United States, although we're sure it can be found in many other countries.

Cultural and historical background

The term breast fetishism is also used to refer to cultural attention to female breasts and the sexuality they represent. There is a widespread interest with women's breasts, which can be size related.
Russ Meyer produced films which focused on the female lead's breast size. in one of his earliest movies from 1964, the main female lead was selected based on the size of her breasts.

There is some debate on whether the modern widespread sexual attraction to breasts among heterosexual males of western society constitutes a sexual fetish. Some official reports from the early 19th century, claim that the focus on breasts was a form of paraphillia, but in modern times this interest is considered normal.
