They generally revolved around things one should know about boobs.
Lesser-known Breasts and Nipples Facts
1. We are all freaks about boobs
Males aren’t the only ones that have a strong liking for breasts. Women do as well and would stare at them just as men do. This has been proven by a University of Nebraska-Lincoln study which used an eye-tracking technology to observe that men and women would ” quickly moved their eyes to and then dwelled on a woman’s breasts…” We are all boobs freaks.
2. Breasts are kind of peculiar to humans
Other mammals have breasts but not like human females. You probably haven’t given this a thought – It is only women that grow big boobs which remain big. For other mammals, their breasts only get slightly big for lactating and never as big as that of human females.
3. Guys (males) can produce breast milk too
It is probable that this is unknown to many because no baby is interested in having them. It Mama’s milk or formula or something else.
4. Some guys even have fully developed breasts like those of ladies
This is medically called Gynaecomastia – the enlargement of breast tissue which is quite common in teenage and older men but also affects men at any age. The causes, apart from puberty include ageing, other health conditions that affect hormones and medication. The condition is treatable.
5. Breast cancer arent peculiar to women, men can get it too
Yeah, it is not a woman thing. Men have breast cancer too and the symptoms are as found in women – lumps are discovered on the chest. It is said that most men with breast cancer would delay seeing a doctor until they start suffering severe symptoms. This is so because it is often thought that the condition is exclusively for females.
6. Babies that were breastfed attain a higher social status in life
This is no gibberish, several studies have supported this sentiment. One conducted by researchers at the University College London found that breastfeeding does impact cognitive development and in turn, stir improvement in social status, reducing the chances of being at the lower end of the social strata.
7. Breastfeeding can prevent breast cancer
The World Health Organization (WHO) hasn’t only agreed that breastfed infants are more likely to thrive physically and mentally into adulthood. The world body also believes that longer durations of breastfeeding go a long way in improving maternal health, saving thousands of lives each year by reducing the risk of breast and ovarian cancer.
8. …And boost the economy
WHO also believes that longer durations of breastfeeding would improve the economy. It is estimated that global losses of low breastfeeding rate amount to US$302 billion every year. Should the condition (low breastfeeding rate) improve only in urban China, Brazil, UK and US, over $300 million will be saved.
9. Nipple/breast stimulation is a sure bet for sexual arousal
Among the many studies that have confirmed this, one concluded that the manipulation of nipples and breasts leads to enhanced sexual arousal in about 82% of young women and 52% of young men.
10. Nipple/breast orgasm is a thing…
Inherently, breasts and nipples are erotically sensitive. Owing to this, it is possible for women to reach sexual climax through breast and nipple stimulation. Nipple/breast orgasm happens at the climax of stimulation when the sensation radiates from the breasts.
11. There are different kinds of nipple
Nipples are broadly classified by the way they look and their peculiar attributes. There are different kinds of nipples and the figure is between 4 to 8.
12. People can have as much as seven nipples and more than two breasts
It is kind of normal so, don’t freak out when you encounter one. It is called Polythelia, the presence of additional nipple(s) and, it is found in about 1 out of every 50 women and 1 out of every 18 men. This is different from polymastia which is rarer and refers to the presence of an additional breast(s).
13. Meanwhile, there are those that don’t have nipples
Again, don’t freak out, it’s called athelia and can be fixed.
14. Many women are unhappy with their breast
Some think theirs are too big and uncomfortable, other regards theirs as too small and unsexy. It is pretty hard to come across a lady who thinks her breasts are perfect, they generally wish for little adjustment here or there.
15. Your two breasts aren’t equal
Check closely again, one of your breasts (almost always the left) is larger than the other. Albeit slightly.
16. About 80 percent of women in the world are wearing the wrong bra size
This is according to a 2008 study of Chiropractic & Osteopathy. Why is this so? Well, let’s just say breasts are puzzling to even those who have them.
17. That’s probably why China has a provision to obtain a degree in bra studies
It’s totally possible, you can attend a university in China and graduate with a degree in bra studies.
18. Boobs are getting more larger
Across the globe, they are generally swelling and increasing in size not necessarily getting finer and, this is the doing of factors like birth control pills, obesity and of course, implants. There was this study in America that found that the average bra size climbed from 34B to 34DD within 20 years.
19. Lovers of large boobs are likely poor
Several studies have suggested that large boobs appeal mostly to hungry men and those who have low economic status. The rich guys are not particularly enthusiastic about large breasts.
20. Accept your fate, those bouncy and erect breasts will eventually sag
You know the deal – good things don’t last forever. This is inevitable, those fine boobs will eventually sag. Sagging comes with old age but certain factors can make them melons fall quicker than expected; one of them is sleeping on your stomach, another is smoking.
