Sure, why not? Not something I'd be comfortable with doing personally, but the paranoia about boobs in the US is just insane and it might make them less titillating (pun intended).
I think the same rules about acceptable locations should apply to both men and women when topless - don't bring that into a restaurant, cover up if you're going to be out shopping, but if you're on the beach? Out in nature? Sure, go right ahead.
Yeah it should be legal. Especially on beaches. Most women aren't going to take advantage of it being legal anyways. In my personal opinion plain nude is "classier" and less sexual than an incredibly skimpy bikini anyways.
It would be super weird lol but I guess I wouldn't care. Definitely wouldn't take part in that though.
I mean when it's really freaking hot out I'll mumble about how I wish I could just take my shirt off like guys can, but uuhhh I wouldn't really put that in practice.
Weirder things used to be viewed sexually and were considered indecent or racy if left uncovered. I imagine plenty were illegal, too. But I suppose we don't find viewing ears, wrists, feet, necks, etc as shocking as other body parts.
I generally feel like if it is secretive or banned in some wag, it makes it more valuable or desireable in one way or another.
I think it is true that if that it was legal and women just walked around topless, it would fade from being taboo and super crazy sexual. Which would be kind of nice, because they are primarily for feeding babies and it is kind of disturbing when you're not allowed to post breastfeeding photos on FB but are allowed to post all sorts of racy, sexual very boob included photos.
There are lots of different body parts in different cultures considered sexual and made to be hidden, things like neck, ankles, etc. It's very much a cultural thing, once you hide it and declare it a special sexy thing, you get this kind of body part obsessed result we have going.
Yep, why not?
We go to Spain alot on holiday, and um, almost everyone goes topless and no one - not even men, give anything about it. My SO didn't oogle at the topless women either.. all was fine, no one was hurt.
Personally, I believe if there wasn't such a hype in the US about people covering everything up correctly boobs would only be half as interesting to men. I remember being like 6, and here in Germany, young girls up until like 7 or 8 often go topless, we went to the beach with friends for the first time in the US and the other mom was like :yikes::yikes: YOU'RE LETTING HER TOPLESS... SHE IS EXPOSED. :yikes::yikes: A 6-year-old girls chest looks pretty much like a 6-year-old boys chest at that age. Seriously. Calm down.
Yes!!!!!!! I sunbathe pretty much topless when I'm on holiday. Tbh I literally just cover my nipples up as my brother and dad are usually there but I don't think they could care less really. I let the rest hang out
I'm not the sort of person who gets overly embarrassed getting my body out though. And I am no stick figure. I have cellulite and stretch marks (even more now!!!!).
It ain't the weather for topless sunbathing in Wales though hahaha. Plus I have massive boobs and appreciate the support of a good bra. But there is NOTHING nicer than being free and feeling the wind blast around your bits. Nothing.
In the province I live in it is legal for women to be topless in public. I have never seen it walking down a street lol. I hear it happens more at beaches etc. I think its a good thing, breasts are not indecent.
Yep. Popping in as another Ontarian to say it's been legal here for a decade or so. I've not seen many people take advantage though. It's mostly at the beaches, or those squeegie kids who would clean your windows without you asking, before the city cracked down on them.
