I’ve read in several articles before about ancient women archers bounding or even removing their breasts to keep them excellent archers. I’ve actually thought about making a study about it, regarding how these ancient female archers did this and if it truly did make them better archers. This study needs to be done to improve the potential of future female archers, and also keep them from making terrible decisions because of a few things ancient warriors did in the past, remember their understanding of physiology, though impressive, isn’t as accurate as modern man.
The first thing to do to get this study started is by asking doctors and professional archers who could tell us if there could be any difference in performance with breast sizes. Having a volunteer that would look at the possible actual effects is one thing, but looking for someone who is skilled with the bow and is willing to jeopardize their ability in the name of science would also prove to be difficult.
When getting cosmetic surgery, it is important for doctors to first examine you if the changes would give you the desired results. I would imagine that the need to let the surgeon evaluate your breasts would be necessary along with the assistance of a professional archer opinion will be needed to determine if such an increase of ability is actually possible through the procedure.
Honestly this is a bit of an extreme way to get the desired ability, to the point of it being barbaric. But then again, the amazons are said to be excellent warriors who were quite formidable with an assortment of weaponry, including the bow.
Las Vegas would be the best place to conduct the study due to the sheer number of surgical conventions regarding breast procedures held there, if the medical information that could help with our analysis and study it would be found here. The effects of their surgery are also studied, apart from the cosmetic results, so the doctors of Las Vegas would be the best place to inquire if such an increase in performance is factual. In the event that a volunteer for the study can be found Las Vegas would also be the most viable option to choose a doctor to do the procedure.
As for now, a mere thought experiment cannot yield us results of this being an actual option for female archers to improve their abilities. It would be dangerous to presume anything now as it could either cause misguided people to make a poor decision, or the termination of studying this.
