Bazongas. Boobies. The girls.
Whatever you call them, breasts are surprising for those that have them and
those that don’t. Turning up around puberty for women, estrogen and growth
hormone cause the development of breasts, which are made up of glandular and
Here are nine more things you may not
have known about the mammaries. After all, they are our breast friends.
01.Some women can orgasm via breast
Two high-profile sex educators
conducted an in-depth study to bolster claims that women could reach orgasm
through breast stimulation alone. Dorian Solot and Marshall Miller, authors of
I Love Female Orgasm: An Extraordinary Orgasm Guide, reported that 1% of women
in their research told of their ability to orgasm through playing with their
02.Boobs are more fraternal twins
03.Breasts can weigh about as much as
Imagine carrying three bricks around
all day every day and then sleeping with them on your chest. The average bra can
support breasts that weigh between 0.23 kilograms (half a pound) and 9
kilograms (20 pounds), about the weight of three bricks. That’s heavy stuff.
04.And if you like ‘em large, you’re
probably not rolling in dollar..
A 2013 study found that men who
"lacked material goods," or who were from a lower socioeconomic
background, preferred women with larger bosoms, as this higher fat content may
indicate the women have access to better resources.
In fact, these researchers found that
those from a low socioeconomic background desired a woman with bigger boobs
more than men from a medium socioeconomic background. And, in turn, men from a
medium socioeconomic background fancied a larger pair than men from a high
Essentially, the poorer the man, the
larger the handful preferred.
05.Everyone stares at your breasts.
According to a study where women and
men were fitted with an eye-tracking device, both were found to look at a
woman’s boobs instead of her face but men do it for longer. So women do
boob-watch too but they’re just quicker about it.
06.What does your nipple type say
There are different types of nipples,
clinically classed as ‘normal,’ ‘flat,’ ‘puffy,’ ‘inverted’ with three grades of inversion, and ‘unilateral.’ And just like the asymmetry of boobs, your
nipples may not be a matching pair.
07.…or even a matching triplet..
Another udder. A triple nipple.
Having a third nipple somewhere on the body is called polythelia. Around three percent of people have an extra nipple, according to Pathology Outline,
although estimates varying greatly by location. The National Institute of
Health’s Office of Rare Diseases estimates that fewer than 200,000 people in
the United States have an extra teat. It’s often mistaken for a mole and can
appear anywhere on the body, so grab a mirror and have a good check.
08.Smoking and pregnancy can cause
sweater puppies to sag..
There is a vital protein in the skin
called elastin, which gives skin elasticity and stretch without tearing.
Continual smoking can actually break down this protein, causing slack bosoms.
Additional pregnancies can also cause breasts to travel south, as a study
presented at the 2007 conference for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons found.
09.You can get your hands on all the
bras – for science!
In fact, there is an entire
department for this at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Created by the bra
manufacturer Top Form, the lab is purely dedicated to the research and
development of bras, glorious bras!
