Would you be half surprised if Scalia and Thomas talked about their clerk's tits when there were no girls around?
All guys do this. 50 year old married guys do it about as much as 25 year old males in a group of men only (the internet isn't much different; in both situations there are few consequences in how girls IRL perceive you). This is not a matter of growing up; this is sort of just what guys do.
Sorry, but it's not. As a straight male with many friends who are straight males, I find myself avoiding groups of men who behave this way. Besides the fact that it's sexist, it's fucking boring. The last conversation I want to have is with some dude about how hot he thinks some girl is or what he wants to do with her. I have much better things to do with my time (like drink and screw) than listen to a group of dudes give themselves hard ons talking about some random girl.
Some of us don't act that way. At Boalt, these also seem to be the most well adjusted and least creepy dudes.
I too am a straight male and don't spend much time talking about sex and objectifying women with my friends, I won't say never, but certainly not very often, and I don't think I am atypical.
