This is not me.


It is a simple question. Why are nipples/breasts so taboo? I want your opinion. Guys with their shirt off it is okay, but a girl, "OMG DON'T LOOK KIDS! NIPPLES!!! YOU SHOULD BE ashamed OF YOURSELF!" Keep in mind a lot of men have bigger breasts than most women!


Also, is this picture not as taboo in your mind because the nipples have been erased? Finally, while we are on it. Why can we have nipples of african tribes on public TV but not other races? Why the divide?


I know these sounds like silly questions, but I want some rational discussion over this topic.


Peace and love <3

As did I.
Having lived in Europe for the majority of my early teenage years (9-14/15), it's definitely true that the United States is a sexually repressive country. I'd go so far as to say it's the most sexually repressive Western nation. Going to nude beaches as an eleven year old was fucking awesome. Just saying. ;)

And the double standard of violence being okay to expose children to, but sexuality being completely off-limits is really messed up. And I agree that it has a mostly religious basis; remember how much of the Bible (for example) is dedicated to misogyny? Remember how much of it is pure violence? The whole situation is screwy.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to join a nudist colony. And you're all welcome to join me. :D
The thing is, with smoking and other behaviors, we protect people by restricting the perpetrator. With sex, we protect women by keeping them hidden from view. At least that it the theory, anyway. Some modern clothing is more provocative than nudity. Think day-glo bikinis!
This is definitely true to some extent. If you've ever been to a nude beach or similar, you may have realized this fact which can be somewhat disconcerting: it is actually harder to differentiate between men and women when they are nude.

Obviously it is not VERY hard, but when you are scanning a large crowd of nude people you no longer INSTANTLY know which are men or women in all cases... depending on which way they are facing, or if boobs & penises aren't immediately visible to give it away.

On the other hand, sexy clothing screams the wearer's gender.
Exactly. A bikini top says "Boobies" at 500 yards!
The nipple-free boobs shouldn't bother anyone because it's the exact same thing you'd see on a mannequin or Barbie doll (and anyone who's ever known a little girl has seen a naked Barbie). The nipples definitely make a huge difference.

I'd have to agree with others about the repressive nature of western culture concerning sexuality. It's a nearly psychotic contradiction that American culture can be so sexualized, but at the same time, so sexually repressed.
The breasts of barbie doll are obviously fake and on a non-living object and not meant to be anatomically correct. The breasts above are a picture of a real woman's breasts where someone removed something that should be there ... personally I find that creepy if you don't that's fine.
Those boobs are naked without their nipples!!!!
And they are a wonderful pair, I must say.
They are worse than naked! The nipple and areolas are the personality of the breast. Without them, it is like they have no souls!

Also, here is an informative link to the above topic! Warning! Lot's of nipples ahead (but not a porn site).
I once saw a medical show of a male-to-female transsexual undergoing a breast augmentation. The patient laid on the table shirtless without a blur as the doctor made the incision and picked up the implant, but as soon as the implant actually went under the skin, they blurred the nipple. I laughed out loud. Here is a similarly amusing story.

The fear of female nipples in this country is sometimes hysterical, and other times downright sad. I was frequently shocked by the comments and problems I had when my children were infants and I would dare discretely feed them in public. Boobs are for selling cars and beer ONLY, dontcha know.

It's just one of those silly last remaining things from a once very conservative society. There are actually groups of people pushing for nipple equality (lol). I'm sure the female nipples will be freed eventually and take their place amongst the spectacular moobs at the beach.
I'm all for nipple equality! If a man can go topless when its 98 degrees outside, then why I should I be forced to wear both a shirt and a bras? Are my nipples really more offensive then some hairy fat guy's sweat-drenched beer gut, whose man-boobs are a full cup size larger than my girl boobs?

Also, I find the nipple-less boobs very disturbing. I can't stop staring at it, my brain can't comprehend it!!!
