Earlier this summer, the world met Sheyla Hershey of Houston, Texas, who possesses the world’s biggest breasts. Sheyla’s knockers measure in at 38KKK, courtesy of some sketchy-sounding surgery that took place in Brazil because plastic surgery laws there are looser. Alas, Sheyla learned the hard way that carrying around a gallon of silicone in your ta- tas is dangerous when they developed a staph infection. Keep reading »
Giving hope to saggy breasts everywhere, a British bra company, Triumph, has teamed up with a military fitness training school for a “boob camp” workout. How do you tone a body part that’s filled with fat (or silicone!)? The UK’s No.1 Boot Camp and Triumph claim their “boob camp” push-ups and dumb bell presses will tone the muscles around your breasts and help hold ‘em high. This sounds like a B.S. cross-promotional idea to me, but hey, maybe you have seen soldiers with amazing racks.
Do you believe a “boob camp” could actually tone your ta-tas or is this idea a crock? [AudioFuel] Keep reading »
A Finnish doctor is on trial for sexual molestation after using a highly unorthodox method to diagnose a patient. When a 20-year-old woman came into his office complaining of nipple fluid, the doctor says he “used an old midwives trick” to diagnose her. After asking her permission, he sucked on her nipple. Now it’s up to the Finnish Supreme Court to decide if his method was inappropriate. Way to go, Dr. Nipple Sucker, M.D. That’s about as creepy as it gets. [FOX] Keep reading »
Scientists are finally working to remedy a problem that has plagued us big-chested ladies since we hit puberty: sports bras don’t really work for us. Most athletic bras have a shelf that is about as effective at holding the twins in place as a band-aid is on a gaping wound, and the bras with cups that do hold things together are painful, circulation-depriving contraptions that make it hard to breathe, let alone jog. Thank God that “breast biomechanics” — I know, awesome name, right? — at the University of Wollongong in Australia have developed a sports bra prototype that supposedly — gasp! — does its job …

When I was younger, my friends and I used to take Mad Libs and fill in every blank space with dirty words and then laugh at how naughty we were. Using this as a base for my maturity level, you can imagine how happy I was when I came across a Gawker piece about a New York Times article that can be read very differently than intended. The NYT article is about the increase of farmers growing smaller and sweeter watermelons instead of the larger “picnic” watermelons. You can understand when the word “water” is dropped and you are left with just melons, that things get a little silly. Read on to see the best quotes from the story that can be taken the wrong way.

The right to bare … breasts? This Saturday marks the third annual “Go Topless” protest in which women are encouraged to take off their shirts and go topless in the name of gender equality. Held simultaneously in nine cities around the country — including Denver, Chicago and Miami — it aims to end shame around women’s bodies. The group’s founder and “spiritual leader” Maitreya Rael (yes of the cult The Raelians) says, “as long as men can be topless, constitutionally women should have the same right, or men should also be forced to wear something hiding their chest.”
The GoTopless group sees their cause as aligned with the fight for women’s suffrage and equality. They also “aim to help men differentiate between nudity and sexuality” by demystifying toplessness and rendering it normal. Keep reading »
Jessica Simpson really fails at this setting-a-good-example thing. I know “The Price of Beauty,” her VH1 reality show, tries to impart the idea that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and colors. She’s even referred to the show as being like “missionary work” for her. But Jessica certainly doesn’t further her own “cause” when she makes comments like this:
“I have a white girl booty. I don’t have a big butt. I’d rather have a happy medium and take some off my chest and put it towards my butt so I could balance out a bit.”
Really, Jessica? Way to go on that “accept your body, everyone is beautiful!” thing. I guess you could say she’s honest to a fault about her body image issues. Or you could ralph at the galling inconsistency of the various things that come out of her mouth at various times. [E! Online] Keep reading »
Breasts are good for lots of things, like feeding newborns and painting exquisite abstract artwork. A Russian artist named Victoria excels at the latter, dipping her jugglies on a palette of Dick Blick paint and smearing her paint-covered nipples on a canvas. Um, doesn’t breast-painting hurt? Maybe she believes she has to suffer for her art. I’m no Isabella Stewart Gardner, but Victoria’s breast-painting is actually quite good. You can watch the artiste and her large
brushes breasts at work here and judge for yourself.

Hold on to your girls before you read this, ladies.
There is a practice called “breast ironing” in the African country of Cameroon, a practice which involves flattening a girl’s growing breasts with hot stones to prevent her nipples from being firm and “enticing men.” The news network CurrentTV filmed a short documentary on “breast ironing,” specifically how mothers believe it will “protect” their daughters from teen pregnancy if men are not tempted by their pert breasts.
