Martina started posting photos of her naked breasts on her blog “Will They Grow?” (obviously NSFW) last week, in order to chart their growth now that she’s on birth control. After the jump, she tells us why and what she hopes to see happen.The Frisky: So what’s “Will They Grow?” all about?
Martina: “Will They Grow?” is a blog dedicated to the size of my breasts. Every day when I take my birth control pill, I take a photo of my breasts to document their growth as a reaction to the birth control hormones.
The Frisky: And why are you doing this?
Martina: I’m obsessed with breast size. I don’t know where that comes from, but I’ve always wanted bigger breasts. There are some great photos of me from age 15 wearing terrible padded bras that are so obviously fake, but at the time I thought it was great.
When I first started taking birth control pills in my late teens and early twenties, it had a significant effect on the size of my breasts and I was psyched. In the 10+ years since then, I’ve switched birth control brands and had a few years without hormones all together, and in the end my breasts are right back to where they started when I was 15 years old.
I recently started taking birth control pills again after a long hiatus, and my first thought was “BIG BOOBS.” Breast growth isn’t a guaranteed reaction to the hormones: everyone reacts differently to hormones at different times in their lives. So in a way, it’s kind of getting my breasts psyched up and egging them on. “GROW! YOU CAN DO IT!”
The Frisky: Any results so far?
Martina: It’s been one week since I started on birth control, and I think I already see some growth. If you look closely… I’m constantly touching and looking at them, and it doesn’t seem that they’ve grown yet to the point where I need to start needing to wearing a bra.
The Frisky: Did you have hesitation about putting your breasts on display, and so many times?
Martina: I didn’t hesitate because I consider it a scientific archive as opposed to “sexy” photos — they’re grainy webcam photos taken in my kitchen with my pajama shirts lifted up to my shoulders. I chose the pose only because it was the best way to get both a side and front boob in the photos. In my opinion: not hot. But apparently people like them. I’m constantly lifting up my shirt to flash people through video chat, so it made sense that the “Will They Grow?” photos would look just like that: my shirt lifted up for a quick flash.
Plus, I’m not exactly a modest person. Even though I’m disappointed about my breast size, I’m still totally confident about them.
The Frisky: What kind of feedback have you received so far?
Martina: My favorite response by far: “If I were Plato and had to reflect upon the perfect nipple, from which all actually existing nipples were mere deviations, I would see yours.” Feedback like that makes me think it might not be so bad if they don’t grow.
