Boobs should always be in the news (and we don’t just mean those ones in Congress). Luckily, they have been of late.

Last week saw Angelina Jolie reveal intimate details of her double mastectomy. Then, The New York Times spotlighted performance artist Holly Van Voast and her bare-chested activism (we never knew we liked performance art so much). Even Playboy just released an “Ultimate History of Boobs,” and, no, it wasn’t simply a complete collection of every single issue they’ve ever published.

All these boobs in the news have made our friends at Nerve.com take note. In a piece called “Why Are Boobs So Fascinating?,” writer Kate Hakala tries to answer that most important eternal question.  She talks about the history of boobs, some famous ones and even discusses her own ample pair.
