|[The famous Venus of Willendorf dated between 20,000 to 30,000 years ago. It is the most well known female carving from the Stone Age. She is an obese woman, and a carving like this found in a Stone Age excavations is a problem for Scientists. The reason is that Stone Age people were suppose to be nomadic hunter/gathers and so would always be on the move. So how did a large obese woman like this, walk along with the rest of the tribe? Was she so important that men carry her in some form of sedan chair? Another theory I have on this is that if we take the Aquatic Ape Theory into account, she could be a diver and her extra fat would keep warm in the water. As I explain in my book, Mermaids, Witches and Amazons.]|
Desmond Morris claimed in his book, The Naked Ape that women developed breasts because it made them sexually attractive to men. So the larger the breasts the more likely she would breed. The problem with this theory is that it assumes that men were the dominant sex during the Stone Age and so it was men who chose their sexual partners. But this may not be true; we cannot assume that early man was a brute who dominated women through violence and rape. Yet at the same time it has to be admitted that in our present patriarchal age women with large breasts are more attracted to men. But whether this means women with large breasts are more likely to breed that women with smaller breasts is a debatable point in our modern world. Though this could be true in the hundreds of years ago, when rich and powerful men could choose wives, concubines mistress with large breasts and because they were under the protection of powerful and wealthy men their daughters were more likely to survive, than normal girl children. Which might suggest that extra large breasts on women, only came an evolutionary advantage, in our present patriarchal age.
So could this also point to their also being patriarchal ages in the Stone-Age when women also developed large breast during those times? When again alpha males chose big breasted women and protected them and their children? This might be true but male and female sexual behaviour does point to patriarchy not being very commonplace during the Stone Age, as previously discussed in previous chapters.
It is of interest that women are far more sensual than men in sex play. For thousands of years men have dominated women and used them as sex-slaves. Yet if a man goes to a very submissive prostitute and even though he can use her however he likes, for his own pleasure, in the end most men seem to be more concerned in ejaculating within a short period of time. Than any sensual pleasure she can give him. Many prostitutes take pride in being able to make a man orgasm within a few minutes or less.
Yet it has been shown in recent times when the roles are reverse and a woman can buy sex from men, they have a very different attitude. A woman can enjoy hours of sensual and sexual play and massage. While although men can enjoy sex play and being massaged they soon get tied of this. This has been discovered in massage parlors where men soon get aroused when being massaged by a young woman he quickly wants to ejaculate. This might be because women have in the past, enjoyed men giving them sexual and sensual pleasure far longer than women doing the same for men. So men are not used to receiving sensual and sexual pleasure from women and only want a quick orgasm. While women in the past through many thousands of years of matriarchal rule, are used to men giving them unhurried sexual and sensual pleasure.
This then suggests that any patriarchal rule by men in evolutionary terms were fairly brief. We know that in times of rapid climate change species of humans went extinct, like the Neanderthals, so that we are the only human species left. And it seems that genetics have found bottlenecks in our evolution where it seems the human race was reduced to only one tribe. As previous mentioned a Matriarchal tribe is far more likely to survive during times of extreme hardship. Which suggests that men taking over in times during the Stone Age were detrimental to the survivability of humans. So that in times of rapid climate change, any patriarchal tribes that existed quickly become extinct and only Matriarchal tribes survived.
Another problem with the idea that large breast point to patriarchy, is that patriarchy does seem to be hostile to women’s breasts. Men are able to walk down the street bare chest but if a woman were to do the same, she would be arrested. It is still not acceptable for women to breast feed in public even though it is recognized today that, “breast is best” for children.
Back in the 20th century male doctors became so hostile to breast feeding that they made the incredible claim that cow’s milk was better for children than human milk! In the 1950s and 60s in the West many women were strongly discouraged from breast feeding their babies. Fortunately in the 1960s the Women’s Liberation Movement got started and feminist scientists and doctors managed to use proper science to demonstrate the obvious fact that human milk was far better for children than cow milk.

The problem might be that breast are not only about sexual attraction but symbolizes motherhood. After all, in the Stone Age a baby will be breast-fed for the first few years of its life. So men’s fixation on women’s breasts may be more about him wanting a mother figure than a sexual attraction. Many women have noted that many men never seem to grow up and treat their wives as if they were their mothers.
So large breast also has a very strong motherly image and as it is mothers who care for children the first few years of their lives, so they could also symbolize the power and influence of the mother. As the old saying goes, “the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world”. This is clearly not true, as we can see all around the world, men hold nearly all positions of power. Yet instinctively we feel that this saying should be true, as it is the mother who has greater influence over a child as it grows up than the father does.
The reason why mothers do not rule the world as suggested by this saying, is that patriarchal rulers have overcome the powerful influence of the mother by brainwashing mothers so they will teach their children patriarchal propaganda. The irony is that some of the strongest supporters of patriarchy over the last few thousand years, have been women. But this is only because patriarchy, knowing the strong influence mothers have over their children have focus their attention on brainwashing mothers, to believe in patriarchal doctrine.
So if large breasts are a powerful mother symbol to men. Then it might symbolize a strong desire to experience a powerful mother who once had real power to, “rule the world”. Men living in a patriarchal world may be instinctively missing this powerful mother who has the power to nurture and care for them, in the way a true mother can.
So perhaps the evolution of large breasts in women, in patriarchal times may not be about men getting women’s bottoms mixed up with their breasts, but could be their desire to be cared for by a powerful mother once again.
