mannequin nipples

Every time I travel in Europe I can help but notice that mannequin nipples are more common and more prominent than they are in the states --- or at least the parts I shop in.

At the beginning of each trip overseas, they surprise me and even make me feel a little embarassed.

Over time, I find that mannequin nipples enrich the window shopping experience.

There's a double-standard. Male nipples are just a pointless vestigal thing, but female nipples have become sexualized. There was a good episode on Seinfeld making fun of this phenomenon.

Europeans, on the other hand, haven't sexualized the breasts, and there's nothing taboo about going around topless, weather permitting.

Hey I like having my nipples played with. How can a society not sexualize an eroginous, sensitive area of the body? I think this is bullshit man?

Oh what a crock of crappola. Of course they have! Any part of the human body that differentiates male from female or is overly sensative to touch will be viewed sexually. Perhaps Europeans know this just like every one else but are not so damned up tight about it. Maybe their attitude is just more mellow. Wow, nice nipples. As a pose to, oh my god I can see her nipples. Female breasts are to be worshiped by men. As the male penis is to be worshiped by women. And while we're at it, why can't male nipples be worshiped? Why can't the entired male or female body be worshiped? AUGH!
