Their theorem can be reversed. Perhaps they got rich because they were flashing the goods around rich men.

ajt167: the wife and i were at a clothing optional beach once. she very briefly took off her top while underwater. her boobs are great, but that was a gyp. at least she was pointing out other hot topless women to me. i spotted them well before she did, but it was still a very nice gesture made even better by the fact that she enjoys ogling boobs too.


lol, good for her. I get that some women are uncomfortable showing their boobs on the beach, but I couldn't care less. No my body isn't perfect and I carry some extra pounds, but I'm the beach and I want to be comfortable and have my fun. In my opinion, if you don't like it, turn away. My husband and I go to Jamaica pretty often but we don't do the all-inclusive type of deal... we go VERY off the beaten path Jamaica where we are usually the only tourists. We were there for a 4 weeks a few years ago and stopped by Negril for a bit. We know Negril very well but this was our first time there during high season and instead of being relaxed and cool, the beach was full of these awful Midwestern mulletted loudmouthed fatties blaring country music and their obnoxious stupid kids. I had no problem taking my top off, but the LOOKS I got from these obese women was almost comical. It was like they had never seen tits before. One even asked me to put my top back on because of her children: one was like 12 and the other 8. I told her quite literally to fark off, if she doesn't want her children to see tits, she should have taken them to Disney World.

I promise, I won't go topless in Disney World.

But I do occasionally go topless when suntanning in the parks in NYC. Yep, its legal here.

The Short answer to that question is that you can more or less chart when each society made that iscovery by charting when they replaced Mother-Goddess worship with male sky-gods, stopped matrilineal inheritance, and began restricting the freedoms and roles of their women.

Some societies seem to have held onto it for a very long time.  Welsh legends of High King Math and Prince Gwydion clearly date from a time when that society didn;t have a concept of fatherhood, as inheritances and the throne in those tales passed from Uncle to nephew (a man's sister's son), and we see celtic women at the time in all sorts of "non-traditional" roles (Ireland's greatest hero, Cú Chulainn was taught how to use weapons by a female demigod/ warrior-queen Scáthach, and she's one of only a dozen famous female warriors in Celtic mythology)

Once fatherhood begins to be understood as a concept by a society, it starts placing restrictions on women, particularly on their farking,  and prizing virginity in younger females, which makes sense because pre-DNA testing that was really the only way for a man to ensure the paternity of his offspring

The real answer is simply "current fashion says tan lines don't look good".
Ergo, when image-conscious people choose to tan, they choose to tan at least topless.
And due availability bias, we get pictures when famous image-conscious people do it.
Case closed. No need for a wandering selective history of fashion trends that gives no particular insight beyond the tautological "people do what is fashionable; what is fashionable changes".

/ tan-lines have their fans, but it ain't mainstream and it's mostly in erotica
// not even those people get excited over a backless gown exposing a bra-strap tan-line

fireclown: fruitloop: You should see her vagina muscles - she has definitely been lifting some weights down there!

I discovered that it's possible for a woman's kegels to be too strong. If she clenches on an out-stroke and stays clenched, you're not getting back in. If she then has a tendency to clench hard when she's really enjoying herself...well, let's just say that I'm glad I never sustained an injury.

JustMatt: Regarding the Versace pic above, does a person have to actively not pick up anything over a pound for a long period of time to get that kind of lack of muscle?


It's Baron Harkonnen's grandmother.

maybe because the rich ladies go to fancy or private beaches where they won't be accosted by douchebags everytime they take off their tops. i guess that was almost in the article (though, it also mentioned that poor people take off their tops around the douchebags).

When did the teen pregnancy rate hit 0?

It's not that we don't consciously know sex makes babies (for the most part), it's that humans, especially adolescents, are shiatty at making risk versus reward decisions.
