The point of this paper is that the position of the male nipple is best located by the contour of the chest, specifically, the lower border of the pectoralis major muscle.
The chest is three-dimensional and a two-dimensional locating method for the nipple does not always seem to be optimal as judged by the eye of the ordinary observer. The nipple can be located by using the lower lateral border of the pectoralis major muscle. The nipple is on the curve of the edge of the muscle, so that it looks outwardly about 30 degrees and downward 15 degrees.
The nipples do not seem to be “natural” when they look forward as car lights or human eyes do. The nipple is not in the middle, one-half way between midline of the body and the lateral border of the body. The nipple is more lateral than medial. the nipple is located on the chest meridian even with the fourth or fifth rib.
