The body is a marvelous thing, full of mystery and allure. Our bodies fascinate us, amuse us, confuse us, and sometimes even scare us. There are some body parts that we would rather keep covered up, and others that we like to show off. It is also interesting to learn how different cultures around the world associate with their bodies. Some body parts that we celebrate and adore could be offensive or considered “dirty” elsewhere, and vice versa.
With the many advancements we have made in science and medicine, we are learning more and more about our bodies than ever before. Medical professionals already know a lot about human beings and the vessels they live in, yet the average person my not have such a profound knowledge of their body. You may find this list of 10 body parts you won't believe exist to be intriguing. Included in this listing are some body parts that do not even seem like “parts” at all, while others are areas of our bodies that we might have assumed just did not have a name.
So, have fun exploring your body (or someone else's!) The next time you are at a party, try throwing these words around. Can we get a “wave your anatomical snuff box like you just don't care!?”

1 Suprasternal Notch
You may call this your “love valley,” and for good reason. The depression formed by your collarbone is a sensual spot, on both males and females. It is referred to, in a medical sense, as the suprasternal notch, although “love valley” sounds better to us. This area is sensitive to touch, and is sometimes checked by doctors in order to determine any illnesses. You should not be able to feel a pulse if you place your hand over this area, unless you are extremely old, maybe. Feeling a pulse here may mean that you have a problem with your aorta. You could also have hypertension or an aneurysm. Where is the love in that?
