So I've noticed this to be the case in both GaG and in real life. When you ask men (and women) what's the most attractive part of the female body, majority of the answers you get are either boobs or butts. These parts are sexualized so much that it seems like men constantly think about them. I do see other answers too like legs and *ahem* feet, but it's rare.
But if you ask the same question about the male body, you're going to get many different answers as opposed to just a couple of them. My answer would be the butt, but I've heard women say arms, abs, shoulders, chest, back, and even hands. But you don't hear as many women talk about specific organs but rather the entire body.
A quick look at the polls on this site and even the answers below them would make this obvious.

let us first look at the reason why sexualization exists. it exists because of evolution. natural selection governs the evolution of a species, so there is an actual purpose why things are sexualized. the reason things are sexualized is because these are desirable traits, they are desirable traits because they help us survive and reproduce. every time we look left and right before crossing the street we are increasing our survival chances, every time we do something in our life like buying a house, drinking water it can always be tracked back to reproduction and survival as the core reason.
sexualization is not a bad thing, its a good thing. without it we would not have anything to be attracted to. the guys saying only tits or ass you know WHY that happens? because women only asking questions about tits or ass. they litterally put in the voting options BOOBS ASS thats it. we as men are expected to choose either tits or ass, if we would be all philosophical about it we fear that we might be made fun off. we think we are doing the right thing by only saying tits or ass. no, not at all at least not for me. i can't speak for other men because i am not like them, that is clear. men who only want tits or ass are satisfied to easily, women have much more to offer if you make them offer it to you. tits or ass does not satisfy me. i want more than that, i want an actual woman to be a woman. what i am attracted to cannot be defined by one poll or one question. it requires deep thought and mental gymnastics to figure out the outlining of what i am attracted to. it is instinctual, it is not conscious. thats why most men say tits or ass, not because it is tits or ass, but because it is straightforward. they are not interested in thinking deeply to explain what they find attractive.2

I don't agree.
Tbh, I think that AT LEAST 80 percent of the female answers to questions like this are just "Oh shit, I have to give an answer" answers... so, in effect, they're basically random answers THAT HAVE LITTLE OR NO ACTUAL SIGNIFICANCE.
More generally, this is actually a HUGELY significant difference between men and women, across the board: Women, **generally speaking**, are MUCH more likely to give their best effort to answer questions WITHIN THE GIVEN BOUNDARIES... while men are much more likely to pretty much tell the question asker to piss off (however politely).
Obviously there are exceptions -- of which I am notably one, and of which I suspect you are another -- but, yeah, this is a VERY consistent pattern. All the way to courtrooms, where female witnesses tend to be much much MUCH more likely to be swayed/influenced by "leading questions", loaded language, and so on.
Here's an example:
• If you ask 100 STRAIGHT men... "If you could have gay sex with any Hollywood celeb, who would you pick?" ... you're VERY unlikely to get more than 1 or 2 actual answers. You'll probably get at least 90 versions of "I wouldn't do that"... and, in all probability, you'll get more physical assaults than names of male celebs.
• If you ask 100 STRAIGHT women... "If you could have lesbian sex with any Hollywood celeb, who would you pick?" ... you'll get at least 75 ACTUAL ANSWERS to the question.
Srsly... Try it sometime, in a random bar or something. You'll get something like 80-90% responses-inside-boundaries from women (if you're sufficiently non-awkward about asking the question), versus less than 5% from men.
Two things about these kinds of responses:
These responses are COMPLETELY MEANINGLESS as far as the ORIGINAL QUESTION is concerned.
For the lesbian sex question, the respondents WOULD NOT have actual lesbian sex with the celebs in question -- even if such lesbian sex were on offer. Rather, they're just naming celebs they personally think are hot, or #goals, or even who share political alignments, or whatever tf. The point is that they're just BEING AGREEABLE, in a way that men ALMOST NEVER do.
Men don't understand this -- which is part of the reason women are much much MUCH better at networking, in general, than men are (it's no coincidence that the word "socialite" is female by default).
These kinds of responses are ALSO part of the reason why sooooo many men actually believe this bullshit about how "most women are bi-curious" or whatever.8
