I just read a fascinating article about using hormones to treat man boobs–you know, moobs, man-breasts, bumpers, headlamps, boy-knockers, mantits, wobblies, bazookas, moobies, chesticles, tipples, mannary glands, love lumps and, the ever-popular, “bitch tits.” Hopefully, that’s descriptive enough for you.
Apparently, they aren’t as rare as we might like to believe. Some of the studies I’ve reviewed claim that 60% of men either have them or get them (which is, I guess, the same thing). In 2005, The Sun newspaper printed an article called, “Moobies and Shakers” which outed the then-Prime Minister Tony Blair who “showed off a rather unflattering set of man baps as he frolicked on holiday”. The article continues with a “tit parade” of top moobs, showing off photos of Simon Cowell, Danny DeVito, Peter Stringfellow and, inexplicably, Iggy Pop.
Surprisingly, not all men are dismayed by their moobs. Check out this site, called manboobs.co.uk, which is a sort of “we’re fat and we’re proud” site for guys with boobs. Men with boobs around the world submit photos to the site and visitors select a “Man Boobs of the Month Champion.” The “Top 10″ page sets artfully-lit photos alongside more in-your-face mobile-phone pictures. They have even met up with a photographer who specializes in art and photo work for obese men, including those with big fannies, big boobies and well, I don’t know what else. You can see the “Among Gentlemen” site here.
ANYWAY, I read an article here that claims you can get rid of them through hormone balancing. Otherwise, I’ve read, naturally being in the business, that liposuction and surgery are also treatments for moobs.
I’ve asked our intrepid hormone-balancing maverick, Dr. Mitch Matez, to “weigh in” (pun intended) about hormone balancing for moobs. Let’s see in our next post what he has to say about this phenomenon.
More later from your Fat Lady (yes, eating Greek yogurt AGAIN today).
