Regular readers migggght be feeling some deja vu (deja… büb?) with today’s strip, as we made one all on the practicaities of becoming familiar with your own breasts in a Breast Self Exam comic a few months back.
But, as next year’s Drawn to Sex book will be all about health, we needed to get a little breast anatomy comic done in addition! It also doesn’t hurt to talk about breasts during Breast Cancer Awareness Month – seriously, drop a charity or two a dollar and get familiar with your own breasts! I, personally, didn’t really know what the inside structure looked like until we worked on this! (For the record: my first impression was that it looked a lot like the inside of a grapefruit).
