          Okay I'm waaaay late to the conversation but honestly Slick it wasn't the ladies wanting the busty busts but the men back in the day. I used to be in a guild with a guy who hid he was a guy just so he could get artwork of his female avatar being very busty. And until he outed himself as a guy we never knew he was male. So all these claims of there being more women on Gaia then men could be wrong because who knows how many of those female accounts are just guys with a thing for big busts.

how far back you talkin, Chibi? I mean I came in at the tail end of '06. It just seemed like everyone was looking for bust enhancements/bra removal glitches.

And anyhow, I picked those quotes because they're the most common sentiments I've seen, especially in frothing at the mouth poorly written rant about wanting more masculine styled items on Gaia. I've seen it in the SF and GCD, and I picked 'em because they're annoyingly consistent in repetition.

And just like you pointed out, there's dudes with chick bases. Or dudes with dude bases that like dressing like a chick. I'm a chick that uses dude bases. Obviously there's no clean cut answer, especially judging by people's varying responses, but I am genuinely curious about the interest in pixel cleavage on dolls.

I'm male if you go by my body parts (such poor)

my gender isn't, but yeah the numbers could definitely be wrong... but even then as Slick said above, there's not really a clear cut answer in regards to the polarity between genders on here

I still think we need more body type mods like I said in my previous post... chubby, fit, etc would just be so much better

On to what others have said, I definitely prefer to look at all the other parts of men (abs, mainly... I'm a sucker for abs on anybody, though lol ) like their hair style and eyes
chins, too
lol

I lurk the GCD so much, but I did not know you were a gay lady too, I'm a s**t lurker lol

You posted my feelings on the matter to a T. I'm the same, I don't understand the appeal of the breast items after a while. (and in theory I should be the target audience? idk?) It's just too much of the same thing over and over again - and as you said, it looks like Victoria's Secret after a while, which is also not my thing/type.

Don't get me wrong, I'm fine with the sexy/risque stuff, but after the pile of announcements on this bunilla/nekola thing, guys need tons of new stuff for them. More muscles, bulges, body hair, male oriented clothing.

rofl it's okay, quite a few have been surprised xd

Ah, yeah, like, I get the appeal of boobs. Really. But after awhile it just...looks so generic.

Oh, look! More boobs in Cash Shop. Which proves that no matter what the medium, boobs sell pretty well.
That being said, I am quite indifferent towards pixel boobs. Fawn will never be seen with implants.

I am one of the users that loves the boob items. And I have the ones I want that I like the use, but really there's only so many ways you can enhance pixels to show cleavage before it all looks the same or loses its allure. I would love to see some legit enhancements for the male avatars.

Honestly the ones we have right now seem like it's either:

          We're talking between late 2007 to maybe 2010 at the latest during the height of the first guild I was in. Guy outed himself when he claimed to be the male cousin of the account he used on another account and then went back to his first account and said his cousin had given him her account. By then my close friend who ran the guild was on to the whole thing because she could smell when a guy was lying about being a woman on Gaia and got him to admit there was no cousin. She wasn't mad just disappointed because if he had been honest from the get go she would have been cool with it.

This is the internet, where one slogan is 'Tits or GTFO." rolleyes

That being said, it's not at all fair that there are a gajillion and three items on Gaia that enhance the bust, but only a handful that do anything for the abs of the male avis. I mean, at the end of the day, this is all just pixelated artwork on a website, but that doesn't mean that the guys should be neglected like they have been.
This is an American culture thing, not a Gaia thing. At least for the intended demographic of this site.

From a legal standpoint, boobs aren't actually sex organs, so it easier to get away with it. Crotches are where sex organs are housed on both sexes, so it's better to avoid it to not get in trouble.

how do boobs contribute to same-face, as the famous philosopher once said, "my face is up here".

Why is there such a marketing ploy for pixel breasts?
-I have no idea, people like boobs for some reason. If you ask just about anyone they'll tell you everyone likes boobs, even gay men.

Who is Gaia's audience for marketing breast enhancements?
-People who want tits for their dolls. wink

Do you like pixel cleavage or seeing it on other people's avatars? Does it make you uncomfortable?
-I don't actually notice, okay I do emo but it's not important to me. I make a call on if I like the avi or not based on more than their boobieweight.

If you like pixel cleavage, why? If you don't like it, why?
-Yes! I have tits, so I like having tits on my avi. I actually find the whole area they shade in for the tits kind of bare without them actually. I very rarely leave my avi's neck clear of some kind of ribbon, because of that. Other times I think it adds a lil more to the avi to have that lil bit of extra.

Would you like to see more pixel hunks? Or do you just like seeing sexy ladies?
-Ahhh yeah. Make me some hunkalicious male avis to drool over. redface

Boobs terrify me, the bigger the scarier! gonk

They're not even a sex...thing, they're flesh sacks for making milk. Human udders.

idk I always kinda assumed we got more boobies than bulges for the same reason barbie has huge bazongas but ken doesn't have a banana hammock. Since we got Godnias tho I think there should be more codpieces.

Boob enhancing items are popular I guess, which is probably why there's so many recolours of them lately. BUT they aren't for everyone. Personally I dislike seeing all the female items we get in the cash shop compared to items aimed at male avatars.

I don't mind seeing the cleavage items on other avatars, that doesn't bother me, but I kinda wish there'd be more mods for guys. Or even mods to make the female base more of a slim guy (it's what I use as I dislike the male base's bulk). I'd love to see bulges, even if its on leg mods! D:

I make male avi's cos I like to make a good looking male avi. It's to satisfy myself visually I guess?
I'd love to make more decent avi's but lately with the lack of new items and the stream of recolours there isn't anything new to play with o3o

Tits aren't just for women, what about fat kids and men with prostate cancer?

I love titties but I don't get off on 5 pixel's worth of chest shading. Maybe that's not the case for the under-sexed masses lusting after cartoon characters?

There is so much free porn on the internet that I doubt anyone comes on Gaia to get their rocks off, aside from cybering teens. It is a case of "sex sells" but more in the sense of people doing it for themselves (no, not an innuendo...really). Most of the sexy/nice lingerie sold is bought by women who just want to look/feel good. Similarly, short skirts are not "asking for it."

As much as we associate teh boobehs with sex, it's actually a fetish/paraphilia (albeit, a common one). It is possible to have a d**k and bawbag fetish but they are sexual organs so a level of "wont somebody think of the children???" above tits. They're also more in your face (yeah, take that as an innuendo) than fanny flaps which are barely visible...er, hopefully.

I really wouldn't care if Gaia let us smuggle more budgies but why is there so much call for...scrotums? Just listen to the word..."scrotum" emotion_puke They look like pingpong balls in a pair of old tights.
