I am just pointing out that this paradise that you speak of I do not know where it exists on earth, do you?
I am curious as to why it does not exist. In societies where women do expose their breasts, all I see is regular subjugation of those women. And in the Middle East it's worse, women there cannot even expose more than a set of eyes and are still subjugated.
??? Who said anything about paradise????
All I know is that in some places, people don't make such a big deal about nudity. A nude beach is an example of this. Greek gymnasiums where men and women exercised in the nude is another example of this. Roman toilets that had no privacy wall is another example of this. Tribal societies where people are naked or nearly naked most of the time are another example of this.
Are all of these women subjugated? Maybe. But my point isn't about whether women are subjugated, but whether it's inevitable that an erect nipple must be viewed as some sort of giant turn on.
And I'm thinking it's only in this culture where we are constantly hypersexualizing women and their breasts that this is actually the case.
Indeed, in a way, you've made my point for me: where women are considered so sexual that they need to be blanketed in a burqua to protect them, even a glimpse of hair or an ankle is sufficient to be embarrasingly sexual.
In the Victorian era, they covered the piano legs because *they* were thought to be too sexual.
