10 Things You Always Wanted to Know About Boobs

Nipples, implants, breast-gasms (they exist!)—experts weigh in on all of the questions you’re afraid to ask your lady.

4. BREAST WEIGHT

Q: "How much does the average breast weigh?" – Justin, Florida

A: O’Reilly says breast weight depends on breast size, as well as the amount of fatty tissue and dense tissue in the breast. “Since breast size varies vastly from one woman to the next, an average weight is difficult to calculate,” she says. “However, an average estimate of breast weight is approximately 1.5 pounds [for the average cup size (which is debatable) but typically falls between a B and C].”

5. LARGE VS. SMALL

Q: "Are men biologically inclined to be attracted to women with larger breasts?" – Tal, New York

A: Men are biologically attracted to breasts, but size isn't always the deciding factor, according to O’Reilly. “Part of that attraction is likely evolutionary, as breasts remind us of feeding and prompt us to activate the two-way bonding circuits of our brain,” she says. “As for size, research suggests that men are more interested in body proportions and the distribution of body fat on the whole as opposed to the size of a woman's breasts alone.”

6. ROUGH PLAY

Q: "I've been with some women who love when I slap or bite their her breasts during sex and others hate it. Are some women's breasts more sensitive than others?" – Alev, Pennsylvania

A: Breast sensitivity definitely varies from woman to woman. “Just like foot sensitivity and pain thresholds are unique to each person, pleasurable reactions are also highly personal,” explains O’Reilly. “You may also find that she likes it rough one day and then finds it to be too much the next week. This may be because her menstrual cycle impacts her perception of pleasure and pain.”
