Bored at work? A little horny? Head right on over to Playboy‘s website for a gratuitous boob photo spread on the “Evolution of the Boob”! Playboy dipped into their old photos to show us breasts from the past six decades because, apparently, “boob shape” is as cyclical as fashion. Now, I looked at those mammaries long and hard and I daresay there’s no difference between ’50s boobs or ’80s boobs or ’90s boobs. The only way breasts have “evolved” — if you could even call it that — would be in terms of “pre-breast implants” and “post breast-implants.” But hey, if Playboy‘s foxy Miss November pin-up 1958 reminds men that bleached blond hair, fake nails and giant silicone tatas were not always considered “attractive,” fine with me!

For the last five months, I’ve been walking around with one-and-a-half breasts. The reason: My breast reconstruction, a two-part surgical process that began with expanders and will end with the implants I’ll get tomorrow, didn’t exactly go according to plan following the prophylactic mastectomy I had two days before Christmas.
Due to this post-op snafu — and the fact that I, a breast cancer gene (BRCA1) carrier, had to make an impossible choice of removing my breasts without ever having had breast cancer — I’ve spent most of 2010 being uber-focused on my partially deflated girls. Read more … Keep reading »
Welcome to womanhood, ladies! A group of transgender women sunbathing topless at Rehoboth Beach in Delaware over Memorial Day weekend drew the finger-wag of a lifeguard when they refused to cover their “surgically enhanced breasts.” Police were called over these tatas! The police chief says these women were not committing a crime, however, because the gals have boy parts down there and therefore cannot be charged with indecent exposure. Now some wackadoodle politician at Rehoboth Beach is considering a specific law to address such a problem. Really, let’s address the real problem here: were these gals wearing sunscreen or risking nipple melanoma? [Los Angeles Times] Keep reading »
This is all kinds of creepy: fans of 18-year-old Romanian tennis player Simona Halep petitioned the player (on Facebook and elsewhere) against getting a breast reduction when she announced her big boobs hurt her and hindered her game. Why make such an announcement in the first place? Who knows. But in a message to her fans — for some reason she felt the need to explain this further — Halep said, “It’s the weight that troubles me. My ability to react quickly [is compromised and] my breasts make me uncomfortable when I play. I don’t like them in my everyday life, either. I would have gone for surgery even if I hadn’t been a sportswoman.” A breast reduction surgery last summer has since reduced Halep’s 34DD cup size to a 34C, which hopefully her fans can deal with. Really, people: she’s a teen tennis star who made it all the way to the French Open last weekend, not a Maxim pin-up. That’s Anna Kournikova you’re thinking of. [Daily Mail UK]
