More than 347,000 breast augmentations were performed in the United States in 2008, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That's a surprising 12 percent drop from 2007 - a sag most plastic surgeons attribute to the deflating economy.

Still, that's a lot of excess boobage.

Women considering breast implants say they want to plump up their pals for a number of reasons: Their clothes will fit better. Their self-esteem will inflate. They have to keep up with every other woman on the planet who's already got them.

But let's be honest. The real reason women get fake boobs is to get guys.

The curious thing is, most men just aren't that into implants. Or at least they claim not to be into implants. (They same way they claim to not like makeup on women. But we all know they just don't want to be able to tell we're wearing makeup.)

To finally put the discussion to breast - er, to rest - we asked real guys around the country for their opinion on manmade mammaries. Many are au naturale addicts. But a few weren't afraid to fawn over falsies, proclaiming them far superior to the real deal.

Read their surprising answers below - and find out if real men think fake boobs are a do or a don't.

Fake boobs are great - the more, the merrier!

"I love them! The nonverbal communication is a huge part of it. Fake boobs say, 'I objectify myself, therefore I have no problem with you doing the same.' They read as: 'This chick is easy.'" - H. from Los Angeles

"I like to call them bolt-ons. Bolt-ons eliminate the guessing game about how pushed up or padded a women's bra may be. I hate the braless disappointment that comes with natural breasts." - D. from Ohio

"All boobs are good." - V. from Beverly Hills

"I always like to know where my lady's breasts are at all times. With her on top, they are right in my face. With me on top … Hey! There they are again. From behind and from the side? Yup, same place. Even inverted I know where those things are at all times. This is not true for au naturale." W. from Boston

"It depends which coast you hail from. I think they hand them out complimentary on all flights to LA." - W. from New York

Keep it real, ladies.

"Don't, don't, don't. I don't care if you were blessed with 'mosquito bites,' there's someone out there who will appreciate them." - J. from Atlanta

"Not everyone has to look like a hooker and breast of all sizes are beautiful. There are even strip clubs here in Vegas that only hire naturals." - D. from Vegas

"I'm a don't. A woman's propensity toward breast implants is inversely proportionate to her sense of independence. " - M. from New York

"Absolutely NOT. Keep it real. Fake anything is a turn off, in this guy's opinion." - K. from North Hollywood

And then we heard this amazing answer:

"I hate breast implants, but I'm a huge fan of labiaplasty. When a girl's lady parts look like origami, it makes things fun like a birthday party." - Nameless from the Midwest

Wow. We can only hope he was kidding.

What do you think of breast implants? Are they endowment empowerment or fatally fake?
