Large breasts are another subject that appeals to MD?s prurient interests, so cases are bountiful in sex literature. After
reviewing a number of photos (hey, it?s all for science), I?ve seen mammaries ranging from huge to unimaginably colossal. "The
Sexual Anatomy of Woman" by W. F. Benedict tells the cases of one 14-year-old who had breasts weighing 16 lbs. and of a
woman of thirty who had knockers weighing 21 pounds each. Another book, Human Oddities by Martin Monestier,
thoughtfully encloses a topless photo of a woman with 44-pound breasts measuring 33 inches in circumference.
Now it seems China wants in on the act. In
1995 their official news agency Xinhua ran the headline, "Twelve-year-old Sprouts
Gargantuan Breasts." Sounds like our kind of journalism. "Each breast of Ting Jiafen, of Changba village, Gudong Township,
Pingtang County, has grown to dimensions of 48 cm long and 30 cm high, weighing about 10 kg," it reported (meaning Ting
would wear a size S bra, assuming they made them that big). Her mother, Chen Guoxia, elaborated, "Her breasts began to
grow last February, and they were as large as fists by May,
getting bigger and bigger afterwards."
Whatever might be said about her breasts from an aesthetic standpoint, they've been nothing but trouble for Ting, who's been
plagued with health problems. In early 1993 she became ill and lost the ability to walk. She recovered, but then suffered
blindness and now has to quit school to undergo hospital treatment.
Excessive buttock tissue, called steatopygous, or "fat-arsed" (as opposed to callipygous: "possessing beautiful
adds that certain mellifluous touch to your locker-room conversations) is rare but not unheard of. The largest examples can be
found in the Hottentot tribe of Africa, who possess moons that would make Sir Mix-A-Lot envious. In their most developed
state, each buttock can be two or three feet across.
