No one really knows, but it's obviously a sexually neutral trait, even some male animals species like rats have nipples.

I do believe they have something to do with development at birth, like how a females clitoris is just a baby penis that has the potential to develop into a full grown one during the stages of development. They could have been boobs, but they chose not to if they fetus turns male

Nipples are just secondary for males after they past a certain 'growth stage', but they still tickle when we touch them because hormones/nerves, but more so in females

From conception until sexual differentiation, all mammalian fetuses within the same species look the same, regardless of sex. In humans, this lasts for around 6 weeks; after which genetically-male fetuses begin producing male hormones such as testosterone.
It's because people don't sexually differentiate until after six weeks of development. There's your answer.

Well since someone with a brain finally answered...

And since for some reason we still have quote-to-text ratio's still like some desperate maplestory community...

Men can produce milk, actually. Not a good source of it, but they can.

Tickle? My nips aren't ticklish. I don't know anyone who has ticklish ones, guy or girl. I'm not doubting they exist. But I doubt it's that common.

Isn't the sex determined on the genetic level at conception? If so the fetus doesn't "turn" male, it just begins to show physical male traits.

"From conception until sexual differentiation, all mammalian fetuses within the same species look the same, regardless of sex. In humans, this lasts for around 6 weeks; after which genetically-male fetuses begin producing male hormones such as testosterone. Usually, males' nipples do not change much past this point..."

"... Their (nipples) advantage in females, in terms of reproductive success, is clear. But because the genetic "default" is for males and females to share characters, the presence of nipples in males is probably best explained as a genetic correlation that persists through lack of selection against them, rather than selection for them...."

these are quoted from wikipedia. the answer is pretty much what i expect.


^Just another nonsensical forum post.^

Seriously, it's because mother nature is bitch, when humans are in the womb the body automatically sets everyone as female, before the chromosomes have a say in anything. They eventually kick in and the female becomes male, but the nipples don't go away.

Damn hold on thats wrong, the fetus is largely genderless because it's still in development....It just shows different traits as time progresses, becoming male as the final decision. But by default, hormones express female [herp a derp] first.

Not all male and female traits are not stored in the XY or XX chromosones, they are stored in chromosones that are shared by both males and females but only activated by hormones released as a result of the XY or XX chromosones.

Nipples are basically the framework for mammory glands, they only develop into breasts with hormones.

That explains why most guys are very happy when their gf's got big boobs or being able to witness a G-cup going boing boing especially when those nipples get hard and pointy.


There are things I do and there are things I want to do. Overall, I just want to live my life and end it the way I want.
