    This may sound like a really stupid question, but I’ve always wondered: Why do men have nipples?

    Men have nipples because, technically speaking, men have breasts and, yes, even mammary glands. The difference is that hormones don’t cause the male breasts to develop during adolescence as women’s do, and because men don’t get pregnant, the mammary glands are never activated.

    I’ve heard it said and I agree that they are an erogenous zone; just like a woman’s. If you have a girlfriend and are willing to try, let her play with them. Some men’s nipples are very sensitive, and it’s quite a turn-on. This I know from experience. You just have to be patient and open-minded.

    My older son asked me why we have hair. I had no acceptable answer. Our little toes serve no purpose. What’s facial hair all about? These things are all evolutionary leftovers, and so are male nipples, I suppose.

    In the womb, everyone starts off as female. At certain points in the pregnancy, certain chemicals may be released causing the fetus to develop into a boy or a girl, but regardless, since we all start out the same, we all have the same basic physiology.

    That all fetus’s start as “female” and are changed by hormonal factors into either male or female babies is a fascinating subject. Each physical structure in each sex has an analog in the other sex. The obvious penis-clitoris, labia-scrotum, testis-ovaries, etc. Males even have a sign of a vagina in the form of a small “scar” on the underside base of their penis.
