You know, women have this thing their breasts do to support procreation - lactation. They release milk. Monday I'll give you a nice run down of what it is and how. I'm sure you know it's to nourish infants, but sometimes this process happens outside of pregnancy/birth, and sometimes not just to women.

There's a scientific journal dedicated to this topic - the Journal of Human Lactation

It focuses mainly on breastfeeding, but also on pathological conditions and their effects on woman and/or infant.

You have to go to Scientific American to read about male lactation in a medical context (or you can just search for really off-kilter p-o-r-n).
