Can sucking breasts make them grow or get bigger

This is really more of a myth especially in some African societies. It is traditionally believed that if a boyfriend constantly caresses or sucks the breasts of his girlfriend more often than not, or if a woman is very sexually active, her breasts may tend to grow bigger. In other words, if a man or lover can use his lips, tongue and hands to constantly work his woman's breasts, they just might grow bigger. However, this myth, which is similar to breast massage above, is yet to be scientifically proven.

If this myth were true, there would be women who could barely stand up from the size of their breasts.

Breast tissue is made up mainly of fat stores.
