Mr. Answer Man says: Because it's an utterly caring act.
Would it be alright if I got metaphysical for a moment? In life, the truly hard thing is to give yourself. Intimacy is risk -- what if I give myself and my partner just takes? -- and although all the mystics from all the traditions tell us that unconditional love should be the foundation for every relationship, it remains the hardest thing to do. But think back to when you were the recipient of a little love coming straight your way, a time when someone treated you to something that was all give, no take and just for you. Melted your heart, didn't it?
That's why guys like it.
