I wrote an entire story last year about the nipple thing — how you can show the entire breast, just not the nipple and how absurd that is. I agree that one bare breast is arousing but a beach with 200 is much less so. Women’s breasts have been sexualized in a way that men’s chests haven’t but I still find a well-defined set of pecs pretty sexy. They probably don’t have fireman calendars in France, but most images of men that are meant to be really sexy show a bare chest.
