  • I heard a theory that men were able to lactate at one point and it is now a vistigeal appendage... kinda like an appendix.

  • I got a degree is molecular biology, and no-- if you slice open a testicle sperm doesn't come out. What you get instead is something that looks like tiny spaghetti-- or angel hair pasta-- smashed into an egg.

    Ewwww... :)

  • The reason men have nipples is because our lactiferous ducts develop before testosterone enters the fetal picture. (Yes, we all start as females.) In fact, male mammary tissue can be stimulated to lactate. In Aka culture of Africa - reportedly home of the best fathers on earth - the dads frequently suckle their babies while mom goes off to hunt.

    thats what google said
