Why Do Men Have Nipples?



this is the title of a new book that is written by mark leyner and billy goldbert, m.d. it looks like a fun read, and i know you want to know why old people grow hair on their ears or is the old adage “beer before liquor, never sicker, liquor before beer, never fear” really true?

i have wondered why men have nipples. really, what is the point? evidently there isn't a point. it is what it is. while only females have mammary glands, we all start out in a similar way in the embryo, the authors explain. the embryo follows a female template until about six weeks, when the male sex chromosome kicks in. men, however, have already developed nipples.

So, you got to watch the Today show. Just last week, I was asking my husband what the purpose of male nipples were. It is pretty interesting and I would love to get the book for a nice read. Oh, the pop rocks and soda pop myth was busted this morning. Where do people come up with this stuff?

i thought the purpose of male nipples was to make gay sex more fun?

you just needed an excuse to write out 'females have mammary glands' and 'nipples'.

So I'm new to the Jlay blog...are you really this out of control? I see in several blogs that people like to tell you that you are out of control. Do you have a reputation for hitting on women alot, or talking about brests alot? Just curious...not that there is anything wrong with that...I'm just wondering.

I've heard from some men that their 'nipples' are just as errotic a part as women's (and not just in the gay sence that jr. mentioned). That's just what I've heard...so maybe that is their purpose.

Im pretty sure the purpose of nipples on men is so little brothers have a good tender area which their older siblings can twist whenever they step out of line.

no i don't have a reputation for hitting on women or talking about breast. i tend to be very shy when it comes to approaching women. my lable for being out of control was spawned by my conservative friends. (no calling out will be done at this time). they think most of the things i say are out of control. i'm kinda diggin' the rep though.
