SPC - I Has Nipple

Why do men have nipples? No really, I don't get it. I thought they were for nursing, right? And men don't lactate, so what are they for? Hold on a sec, let me Google this. Here's one answer. Good 'ol Cecil. Salon chimes in here. Seems to be pretty much the same answer. There's even a book! Wow, I bet you didn't know you'd get the answer to one of life's mysteries here today.

The theme for this month's Self Portrait Challenge is "The Body". I must admit that this is a topic that I'm probably not all that comfortable with, but I'm not quite sure why. Is it because I don't think my body lives up to some impossible standard of beauty, or do I just feel too vulnerable putting these pieces of me out there for all to see? I don't know, but I think this month may be a good time for me to explore some of these issues and maybe learn something about myself.

So the answer is there is no answer. Or did I not read far enough.

I'm glad you have nipple - I was ready for three or something.

Hey my son just asked me this.
"Because everyone does" was my reply.

This is a good portrait. I don't know how comfortable anyone feels about showing bits and pieces of oneself to the world. But hey you have nip.

Hey -- why didn't you and BZ send the other guy in SPC the memo that we were supposed to post a nip-pic this week??

I've wondered about the male nipple thing too, so thanks for doing the research. :-)

Maybe man evolved from woman and the nipple is a leftover moment from that, like the tail? :);)

And Jeremy, if there was a memo about nipple posting - why were you ripping off your thumb?

I say just shave off the nip.

I don't care much for the word nipple. I think it would look really weird if they weren't there, but then if men never had them, maybe we would think it looked weird with. I really like this self portrait.

I didn't check your links... but in case it was not in there... Men actually CAN lactate!!!!! I know... weird. Weird but true, and in some cultures they even use their lactating abilities to nurse the babies. Google it, I kid you NOT!
