Topless Stripper Pinatas Giving Texans An Eyeful

A pinata shop in Donna, Texas, sells the usual Elmo and Batman pinatas, but it also sells one particularly troubling item: a pinata of a topless lady on a stripper pole. Moms who drive past the nudie pinatas told the local news station it’s inappropriate for little kids to see. No one questions, though, whether there’s something wrong with the idea of swinging a bat at a stripper pinata.

Topless Transgender Women Told To Cover Up At Beach, Spared Arrest By Their Boy Parts

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 »

Chicks Apply Makeup With No Mirror, But Why Are They Topless?

Vice magazine recently ran a rather clever beauty story in their March issue (one that I missed because my ridic hipster days are long over, God bless ‘em). They asked several American Apparel models “real girls” to apply their makeup without mirrors — like, ZOMG! — and had well-respected photographer Richard Kern snap the results. Now, I have to hand it to the girls: They didn’t do such a bad job, considering the circumstances. However, I do have a couple of problems with the gallery of images … Keep reading »

Shocker! A Topless Protest Garnered Stares

In Portland, Maine, it is legal for women to go topless in public. And thus Ty MacDowell put up a post on Facebook asking ladies to join her for a topless walk down Congress Street over the weekend, to advance the idea that women should be able to exercise the right whenever they like. A few dozen showed up, and they began meandering down the block, sans shirts. But then, something insane happened. People—many of them men (gasp!)—stopped and stared. “I’m amazed and enraged at the fact that there’s a wall of men watching,” said MacDowell. “A lot of people were taking pictures without even asking. Even if you’re somewhere where people are fully clothed, you should ask.” Keep reading »

Lily Allen Goes Topless Again In Harper’s Bazaar Russia

For someone with so many supposed body issues, Lily Allen surprisingly seems to have no problem exposing herself. In the January issue of Russian Harper’s Bazaar the pop star appears topless in an edgy photo shoot that also features some vixen-y lingerie and Tim Burton-esque accessories. Allen has also shown off her ta-tas for magazines like GQ and i-D, so maybe she just knows what the people want?

In this spread, Lily looks pretty and fashionable (minus the cigarette smoking in one shot), but in a slimmer, Kate Moss-like way that she hopefully won’t take too far. Then again, who knows how much these images have been Photoshopped. The topless pic after the jump. [Fashionising.com] Keep reading »

New Hampshire Teen Has The Titties To Test The Law

Eighteen-year-old Cassidy Nicosia of New Hampshire really cares about equality. That’s why she decided to see what would happen if she walked down the streets of her town topless and packing heat in a holster. Now that takes some balls titties! Why did she do this? Cassidy is a member of the Free State Project, an effort to convince 20,000 peace-loving people to move to New Hampshire, get involved in activism, and run for local office. Cassidy says of her stunt, “Men can walk down the street … and, you know, not get harassed at all but yet somehow this is dirty.” So how did her little experiment turn out? Keep reading »

Oops! We Missed National Go-Topless Day!

We’re not exactly sure how we missed it, but apparently last Sunday was “National Go-Topless Day.” Groups of women gathered in New York City, Venice Beach, and other hot spots around the country, and took off their tops to support women’s right to go au naturale in public, just like men. I love this video because it illustrates just how prudish we are as a country. Hardly any of the gals are filmed below their necks, even those who have shirts on. Why? Presumably because they aren’t wearing bras. Gasp! By the way, if you ever get the desire to shed your shirt in the outside world, you can do it legally in New York—the only state that supports our right to bear breasts.

Jordan Matter’s Topless Photographs Liberate The Female Subjects

Photographer Jordan Matter’s new coffee table book, Uncovered: Women In Word and Image, was just released, and it features more than 80 New York women baring their breasts in public (legal in NYC). The project came about after “Nipplegate” — when Janet Jackson “exposed” her nipple on the Super Bowl halftime show — and, “I got to thinking about our culture of covering up.” In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Matter says, “The book became less political and much more about the empowerment that the women would feel. The photo subjects found the option of not covering up to be incredibly liberating.” Matter chose a wide variety of different women with different body types and breast sizes for the project, which makes the images especially compelling.

Maine’s Topless Coffee Shop Burns Down

I’m one of those people that loves being naked. Ask anyone who has ever lived with me and they will tell you it’s my forte. Sadly, yesterday a coffee shop in Maine that shared my love of nakedness burned down. The Grand View Topless Café had been a huge success in Vassalboro, Maine since it opened February, due in large part to the half-naked wait staff. Relax, the servers were both male and female—the Grand View wasn’t just some pseudo Hooters. “We didn’t hire 10s,” the owner told CNN. “We hired everyone from skinny to big-boned.” Although many people in this small town were up in arms over the nudity when the place opened, the sex was selling. But, alas, the shop is no more. And the owner didn’t have insurance on the property. [Maine Today]

While the Grand View Topless Café rests in peace, let’s take a look at some other places where the topless business model prevails: Keep reading »

Sunbathe Topless Without Burning Your Nipples

While Europeans are known for spending the summer lazing about the beach topless, we Americans have more modest sunbathing practices, which involve covering up our boobs and bums. But if you’re taking vacation in France this summer, you’ll be able to test the topless waters without showing your peaks to the entire Riviera. Starting in June, Sephora France will stock 50 of its stores with Nippies, those little stickers cute shapes like stars and hearts that cover up your nipples and are normally worn under clothing that don’t allow for a bra to prevent “wardrobe malfunctions.” While Nippes are for sale in the states, Bristols 6, the company behind Nippies, is marketing their use in France as a way to avoid unintended nipple slips at the pool when wearing teeny bikinis, and on their own as an alternative to tops (yes, the adhesive is waterproof). “While topless sunbathing is de riguer in Europe, Nippies are a chic cover-up for less courageous Americans desiring a cool Euro vibe. … Undercover or exposed, Nippies are a patch of freedom you won’t need to hide,” reads a promotional email. Would you wear these sparkly stickers in place of your swimsuit top? [Bristols 6] Keep reading »
