    The question is will the female nipple
    Ever be considered not sexual? Is that even a choice for society can make conciously ? Well you could make the point about ankles and how they were one seen as sexual. However i think that is mainly for taboo factor rather than something perhaps more primal But in my opinion boobs are potentially sexually attractive and whilst I have no issue seeing a pretty girls boobs in resplendent ,glorious, nudity that is because I am a ********.

    Do you agree? Disagree? Not sure? Think it depends on setting?




    Imo (as a woman), I am not completely opposed to the movement because I feel like censoring female boobs/nipples completely is daft, e.g. breastfeeding, but whether we like it or not, boobs/female nipples are over-sexualised and considered secondary sex characteristic in most of the world. At the same time though, I wouldn't be totally against female nipples being uncensored/allowed on beaches etc. because the only problems I can imagine are those caused by other people who are rude/sexually harassing them, nothing from the women themselves... but I'm not sure where I stand exactly.

    Thoughts? Arguments for and against? I'm genuinely interested because I'm unsure about it.
    i see nothing wrong with it

    Female nipples are no different to guys, but tbh I'd rather not see either in city parks etc. On beaches/TV; couldn't care less. Walk around naked for all I care, as long as you don't get too close.

    If it was not for camera phones I think more women would be willing to be topless on a beach on a sunny day.
