Why do men have nipples?


Answer by  DevoutCatalyst (441)

All the current answers are incorrect. EVERY human being @ conception is female. The male chromosome stops us developing into women and instead makes us men but at the starting line we all begin as women. Hence we all have nipples. The same applies to all mammals.

When a baby is first concieved the gender is'nt determined yet. It actually follows a female blueprint in the beggining. If the fetus has a Y chromosome the hormone testosterone starts to develope it into a male baby after the first few weeks.

Nipples aren't a sex-linked characteristic. They develop before a fetus officially becomes male or female, thus the reason both sexes have them.

Men have nipples because they are appealing. Probably someone with a penis has had no nipples. But my hunch is that most men will always have nipples because they are fun to have. They look cool and they feel good too. So women will always want nipples and will always mate with men who have them.
