The Daughter , The Mother and The Breast

She said to her mother; "Mum, please explain to me, why is the female nipple forbidden?

That nipple that gave me comfort when I was distressed,  fed me when I was hungry and gave me nourishment so I could grow? " 

The mother answered

" I am not sure my child. The original purpose of the nipple has been suppressed. There are community guidelines in place to protect the public. If the nipple is on view,  then most likely, you will see a whole breast. A whole breast is considered porn. Pornography is something that the community is protected from online.”

"But mum, when did people forget about the original purpose of breasts? Keeping tiny humans alive, growth and giving life?”

"You see my child, if we remove the purpose of our breast and replace it with lust, desire and the fundamental idea that they are there to pleasure adult humans, like in magic, we have also abolished the potential power and endurance these body-part hold. 
What would unfold of women were just happy with their breasts? If the breast functions were treasured and the power that lays within the bosom was obtainable for all women, imagine that what would unfold?”

Please Let The Bunny Grow Up.

Imagine this: The Playboy Mansion, 1960, a place where superheroes, sex, free expression and revolution are rampant. Hugh Hefner's pneumatic Playboy bunnies, complete with pom-pom bobtails, floppy ears and bleach-blonde hair, are trailblazing a poignant feminist fantasy, where men and women start to meet as social and sexual equals. Fast-forward 50 years, and the Playboy legacy lives on! Our peculiar fascination with female promiscuity versus female empowerment has never gone away. We are surrounded still by supercharged sex, and soft porn pin-ups. Anything goes, from Page Three glamour girls to burlesque beauties and, of course, the formidable Jordan.

The social commentary surrounding gender politics has changed however. Girls grow up fast and clues to their sexual style come from the role models that society shows them. Perhaps, the sex siren of the 60s had something to prove, but the question remains: Is she now pedalling porn for male pleasure? Has she grown tired of him getting all his own way? And how does that make her feel? My niece, Emma, makes the ideal modern bunny! At just 11, she lives in a world where almost every taboo is broken. Breasts are not a big deal. Sex is just for starters. She is exploring sensuality and womanhood and she is on the brink. But how does all this make her feel? And surely there really must be a better role model than a bunny?
