Girls, why do you cover up your nipples?

Why is so much effort expended to hide female nipples, while males are free to expose theirs?Do you ever wish you had equal breast rights?

  • In Europe we have equal breast rights. Then again Europe does a lot of things we'd find taboo..America...we're puritanical, so we put that kind of oozing sex appeal in our advertisements and on TV.And that's why in America we don't have equal breast rights. Look at ancient cultures, the one's you see on National Geographic, women are topless, men are topless, but both cover their genitalia.

    • This reminds me...i was randomly flicking through the channels one day..than I saw this beautiful looking weather lady 3minutes later I thought I was on a porn channel LOL

    • Ah, Naked News...Good stuff.

  • Yeh it would be nice to have the option. In europe it's not a big deal.Also from what I've learned on this website most guys are interested in the behind not the chest so it really shouldn't be as taboo as it is.Some guys have foot fetishes and find a fine pair of feet attractive does that mean I have to wear shoes all the time?

  • Because us females don't just have nipples we have breasts.Society can deal with seeing a males flat chest with nipples.When you see boobs in all sizes its like WHOA! and kinda to much for the eye.

    • "When you see boobs in all sizes"... I've been often on European beaches. (really often, like a month every summer for 10 years+ in Southern France). Topless is considered quite normal there (bottomless too, on some!) It takes about 15-20 minutes to get used to it. Maximum 30 minutes. After that 'it's just another pair of...'Other men I know have the same reaction. It's hiding body parts that creates mystery and (sometimes extreme) curiosity.

  • haha cause people are sexist. sometime I wiukd just like to run around with no top on but I can't lol

  • It would be fair for women to have the option but honestly life isn't fair. I mean when I was five I remember my brother could walk around with no shirt I was told not to because I am a girl and its not proper (even though I was completely flat). At that time I was like what the hell but now I kinda realize why women don't. I mean you wouldn't want it to be like one of those nature specials about amazon tribes were the women go topless and there boobs are all saggy.

  • I never thought of it like that... Idk... but it would certainly be awkward not!

    • Does that mean you wish you didn't have to hide your nipples?

    • Would you go topless on a beach if it was permitted?

    • When some women are a bit older they prefer to wear a bikini bra on the beach to hide the sagging of their breasts. (and prefer girls to wear bikini bras too so their husbands can't compare ;-)) Other women don't worry about that but it will be more present in a society where there is more competition..

  • It's just a bit taboo. Female nipples are used for something, where as male nipples really have no purpose. The only reason males have them is because they are formed while in the womb before the sex of the baby has begun developing. Nipples/breasts are a "private part" on women. It's something you don't want to just let all men see right away. It's something they should work for. Men don't go around letting their testicles hang out.. well.. most men.

    • Female breasts are used for feeding babies. Why does that make them taboo?

    • I don't really wish I had an option. Takes more mystery out of dating. Takes a bit of fun out of the challenge of getting to know someone and letting them in on those parts of you. But that's just me. I'm sure there are plenty of sluts that would love to show their t*ts to any man who walks by.

    • That's a taboo since 1820 or so. Perception of nudity changed a lot:a 120 years ago girls showing their knees were considered total sluts.During the Middle Ages (and later!) people met other in the bathroom: each his own bath or the jaccuzzi without the bubbles...As late as 1793, French politician Marat received people while taking his bad. That's where Charlotte Corday assassinated him. French painter David painted it: http://membres.lycos.fr/neoclassicisme/illustrations/david5.jpg

  • Girls can go topless in Canada. Just another reason why Canada is more awesome than the US. Unfortunately because of American influence most girls don't drop the top though.An ex of mine and I used to go on naked walks after dark when we were dating sometimes. It is quite liberating to just walk down the street totally naked. This one kid biked past us about 6 times though once. It is really funny to walk past someone on the street when you are naked. They don't know how to react. We also had sex later on a tennis court one time, that was pretty hot. I don't have a problem with being nude in public or having sex in public. One time these two girls I just met gave me a double blow job on a park bench and then I had sex with one of them right by a well travelled pathway. People saw all of it and I didn't care. It was awesome.

  • Go to downtown Portland, Oregon during the spring/summer. I would be surprised if you didn't see at-least one women walking around without a top on...Granted, Portland is WIERD. XD

    • Totally true dude. Keep Portland weird. =P Have you been to Oregon Country Fair outside of Eugene? A good fraction of people who attend are much less clothed than they'd be in 'normal society'. There's some form of nudity everywhere you look. I've never seen so many bare t*ts and dangling nutsacks in one place in my entire life, haha.

    • I have not been for years, but I have been. Sadly I missed the Zombie march this year due to school... Love PDX, can't wait to go home!!Also, there is also the annual Naked Bike run every year, I think there was what... 2000 people in Portland for '09? Only was like 800 in '08, but whatever. Haha
