My friend Amy King posted this video on Facebook. I am not sure why the breastfeeding expert is sitting naked in a bathtub in a candlelit room, and I have to admit that image does make it difficult to take the video seriously at first, but you should not allow that to detract from what the video has to say, which is interesting if only because it points out yet one more supposedly essential and absolute difference between men and women that is, in reality, neither absolute nor essential. (To be on the safe side, you probably should consider the video NSFW.)
