The evolving breast

Throughout evolution the breast was the main source of nutrition for our babies. Breastfeeding was a skill we learned from watching our mother, aunt, cousin, sister even grandmother doing. But for some reason the breast has grown into much more than just a source of nutrition for babies.

It has evolved into a sex symbol.
It has become a place of trust for our babies.
A place of comfort.
The breast has much more meaning than just sex appeal for our men too. It gives them a sense of comfort and acceptance, it make them feel calm and at home.

The breast is much more than just a body part. It is what nurtures our future in so many underlying ways.
"And she placed him to her bosom and nurtured him till his heart was filled" -my grandmother Alma Vlaun.
