Nipple Madness

Busting out of a favorite dress

Americans have a weird relationship with nipples; well with female nipples anyway. What’s the deal with that? Is it our Puritan ancestry coming through all these years later or is it something else? A woman can show her entire breast in public — on the beach, on the red carpet or just about anywhere else, but just don’t show the aereola/nipple or suddenly it’s over the line.
