Real life vs Societal expectations


Yeah, news flash people, boobs generally only look “perky” while in a bra. A few are super lucky and have naturally perky boobs, most don’t. And this is because, SURPRISE, boobs are intended to feed babies and it’s hard for a baby being cradled in mum’s arm to reach a nipple that’s on the other side of the boob from where its mouth is.

Think of a soda fountain machine. The spouts are all pointing down, right? So you can put soda in a cup being held under the spout? If the spout was sticking straight out, it would be really hard to get a soda out of it.

Babies need to be able to reach a nipple easily so they can eat. Ergo, nipples are usually lower and angled more downward on a naturally hanging boob, both so it’s easier for a baby to reach and so gravity can do its part in pulling milk toward the nipple.
So there you go, outright ANATOMICAL proof that boobs are not there for the benefit of men.

Thank you for that. I never realized. Thanks.

OMG THIS IS ACTUALLY A FUCKING REVELATION FOR ME ok because I was actually a little self conscious about my nipples pointing down because I guess I had it in my head that only old peoples’ boobs are supposed to do that like 50 year old boobs, not young 20-30 year old boobs, because on the TV 20-something and 30-something actresses have nipples that point forward, and only 50+ women talk about saggy boobs, and I thought ‘wtf is wrong with me that I have saggy boobs already?! What did I do wrong? Did I not wear a bra early enough? Too early?’ But no I am actually of child-bearing age and my boobs are supposed to sag down, because otherwise how would a baby feed from them??? OMG. Of course!

But now I don’t understand why so many actresses who go topless have forward facing nipples???

also nude-coloured tape, as seen here, can be easily covered with make-up
