Forks vs. Fingers [moved from General Chowhounding Topics]

I love food that I can eat with my hands. I have always found it to be a fun and sensual experience.
Now, I would never do this in public, but I have found many of the chefs I work with feel the same way - when we're back in the kitchen, we will dig into our own food with our hands: steak, mashed potatoes, whatever.
However, both my boyfriend and my ex prefer forks. My boyfriend and I go to a restaurant - I order ribs, he gets pasta. Of course, the waiter puts the ribs down in front of my boyfriend. So, I guess it is not really a girl thing.
Maybe I'm just really in touch with my inner child. Maybe it is a chef thing. I don't know.
Which do you prefer? And why?
