Over the last few years,
I have wondered
why the breast …
… has been so desecrated.
What is there about a mammary that could be so threatening that a multitude of campaigns have been launched against them?
They don’t appear to be
So why the full frontal attack?
Well when you start asking
it seems you really must expect to encounter
Tales of the Completely
Let our strange journey begin.
Many years ago I went to see a movie I never saw. I don’t know whether I walked into the wrong theatre or they mixed up the movies, but that day I unintentionally watched Soldier Blue.
I remember that I liked it enough to take a friend to see it a couple of years later.
But it had changed.
The first time it was gritty.
The second (less-edited) time, it was brutal.
“A good number of critics in 1970 believed that Soldier Blue had set a new mark in cinematic violence, as a result of its graphic scenes of Cheyenne women and children being slaughtered … its U.S. poster boast that it was “The Most Savage Film in History.” A massive hit in Great Britain and much of the rest of the world“
Wikipedia just gave you that information.
But Wikipedia left something out.
I wonder why?
There’s a scene in that movie that slams through the head like a mallet & is never forgotten.
Partly because you’re left wondering:
“Who the fuck would ever, ever think to do or show that?”
“We don’t see the breast come off, but we do see the bloodthirsty soldier begin cutting away at her flesh before the camera itself cuts away“
“among the edited carnival of cruelty that was removed from the originally cut down 135 minute version were shots of breasts being sliced off and batted around“
“This notoriously violent ‘western’ comes to DVD at last … but lamentably … is still missing the ‘rape scene’ in which an Indian woman has her breast cut off” wtf???
Something that has been going on for a long time was shown to us, in Soldier Blue.
fear & loathing
of the breast.
I am inclined to think that movie was made for this scene, with …
… the brutality in the rest of the film being a cover story - to allow this expression of breast hatred to be injected into the minds of a generation.
Oh dear have I lost the plot?
Can’t we have a nice meaty article?
Why would boobs, tits, knockers, jugs, gazongas, fun bags or hooters warrant this kind of attention?
Thanks to a video clip that moochoo sent to Paulo, & Paulo sent to me, a whole series of disconnected ideas all came together. I do hope you watched that video - even just the first 10 minutes will do.
It reminded the women of what we already knew but had been societised to forget:
That the heart of a woman
is found in her breasts.
emanates the might, power, strength
& wisdom of the (healthy) feminine.
Through the Celtic Rebel‘s work, I started to see for myself, that the attack on the feminine is not what we’ve been led to believe.
Women have long known that there is something very wrong – but the two & two they were directed to put together to get the answer male domination - does not add up.
If men have dominated women in order to turn them into sex objects & baby factories, WHY would they attack the breast?
Why would they destroy that which they need as much as the babe?
“A German research published in New England Journal of Medicine and Weekly World News said that men staring at women’s breasts in fact prolong their lives …
Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female … is equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out,” said author Dr. Karen Weatherby, a gerontologist“
Why on earth would they …
… the peace that surpasseth all understanding?
I am currently entertaining this theory to dinner:
That it is the breast …
… that calls life into life …
… that calls to the man to the woman.
… that calls to the babe in the womb,
to be born …
That is why the infant seeks the breast immediately after birth.
Thus we might say …
The breast is the mother
“Paradise is opened at the command of mothers” ~ Egyptian Proverb
(pay attention to this thousand-word-picture)
- Jehovah is left (behind) while Eve takes central position …
but even she is relegated to second place,
behind her breast.
I realise most women & men will have given little thought to the breast …
… other than as they have been instructed.
We’re going to change that today.
First off I need to flesh out an idea that The Celtic Rebel introduced me to – a demonisation/repugnance of the feminine that has nothing to do with subjugation of women.
I accidentally grasped it a few months ago while watching
that extra popular
about a group of blokes
who put on a strip show for women.
I was not on duty that night, I was not looking to find anything – I just wanted to chill out before bed.
It was a scene of three women in a men’s toilet, that did it. One of the women is upset so her friend goes over to the urinal, lifts up her skirt & pees ‘man-style’ in order to cheer her up.
A woman would think of that?
Another woman would find it funny!
How did I never question that before?
From then on, I saw what I’d always missed – constant images/suggestions of the unpleasantness of women v male comradeship & bonding:
“I also saw the immense bond between the men … they find strength in each other“
I think what sealed it was the unbelievable sub plot of the chubby best friend who cannot have sex with …
… his buxom, eager wife because he’s doesn’t feel desirable?
Are you kidding?
It’s only through the thoughts generated as I write this article
that I now realise something I’ve seen but not seen
that the undeveloped
is the new religion
Since re-watching this movie, I’ve seen & felt this message of distaste for women being repeated over & over – one of the most recent (extreme) cases is the movie Bridesmaids.
So let’s look at the biggest sellout of our culture …
“A bra goosesteps you into womanhood whether
you’re ready or not“
Lets look at how the modern world …
double-crosses the heart …
… of the budding girl-woman.
“Over 90% of Australian women wear a bra, most without ever asking why“
You know you’ve done a damned good job as a …
… Prison Warden when your prisoners consider the donning of their shackles as a rite of passage:
“Culturally when a girl gets her first bra, it may be seen as a rite of passage and symbolic of her coming of age“
“A first bra signifies the entrance into womanhood that so many young ladies await with great anticipation“
You know you’ve done a damned good job as a Prison Warden when your prisoners consider their shackles as a must-have fashion accessory:
“British women – 3,000 of them – have nominated the push-up bra as the greatest fashion invention of all time? In a survey conducted by Debenhams, the cantilevering brassière scored a hefty 20 per cent of the vote, well ahead of more sophisticated stalwarts such as the stiletto and Hepburn’s little black dress“
“At school my boobs were bigger than all my friends’ and I was afraid to show them. Now, I feel they make my outfits look better. They’re like an accessory” ~ Jessica Simpson
“I’d definitely pose nude again. No qualms. I actually had my breasts done again. Just updated, like new tires” Jessica Hahn
“Forget offering them a grownup-looking business suit or strapless evening gown instead. As far as these little girls are concerned, wearing a bra is the key to dressing like a woman“
You know you’ve done a damned good job as a Prison Warden when you have fooled the unshackled inmates into promoting your agenda:
“If you want your t*ts at you belly button by time your 40 …
… let em hang girl!“
“ofcourse, strapping down your boobs is the first step into womanhood i believe“
“Women are always complaining about men’s fascination with breasts. But what if men were absolutely indifferent to breasts? What would women do then with these things that serve one function once or twice in a lifetime, and the rest of the time are just in the way?”
You know you have done a great job as Earth’s Prison Warden when you created a race of ‘cultured’ idiots:
“male and female created he them“
Twenty years ago a pregnant, 41 year old woman, Soma Grismaijer discovered a lump in her breast – the fear for her (& their unborn baby) led this woman & her husband, Sydney Ross Singer to an amazing uncovery:
“Soma & I returned to the United States within a week of discovering her breast lump … we arrived home both emotionally & physically exhausted … When Soma removed her clothes … I noticed [her] breasts were outlined by dark red lines. The lines had been left by her bra. Before I could say anything, Soma began to rub her reddened skin. She did this unconsciously, & I realised that she always did this after removing her bra. I suddenly recalled a conversation that had taken place between Soma & a Fijian woman …
How would you respond to such a question?+
“I never thought about it before. I guess it’s just the custom“
… taking the bra & feeling it, she asked, “Doesn’t it feel tight?“
“Sometimes,” Soma answered. “But I suppose you get used to it.“
Soma’s husband then recalls learning about the process of castrating bulls:
“You simply wrap a band around the base of the scrotum. The band constricts the blood flow & starves the constricted tissue, which eventually shrivels up & withers away“
A theory, culminating in intense research followed:
“When we first announced our theory and research linking breast cancer with the wearing of bras, we were laughed at, ridiculed, or simply ignored. “How can a foundation garment lead to disease? Absurd. It’s too simplistic. There is no scientific evidence …
That was back in 1995 … We had expected an open-minded, if not enthusiastic reception to our research showing that bras are the leading cause of breast cancer. We were naïve. Breast cancer is more than a disease …
… It is a cultural phenomenon“
“Nowhere in modern medicine, as far as I can determine, is there a serious appreciation of human beings as cultural entities“
“Truth, or our perception of it, is a function of our limited, culture-bound understanding & is often as fluid as a change in custom … The best we can do is hope to rise above our culture as much as possible …
… to see our biases, challenge them, willingly allow our view of the world to shatter as our biases knuckle under the blows of scrutiny“
So why not let your world view shatter a little:
“There was a 125 fold increase in breast cancer incidence between women who were bra-free and those who wore bras 24 hours daily. Wearing a bra over 12 hours daily conferred a 113 fold increase in breast cancer incidence“
“Breast cancer in a twelve-month-old mouse … is not the same as breast cancer in a sixty year old woman … Given the obvious pitfalls of tissue culture & animal studies, why are they the mainstay of human cancer research?“
“It is the rule of life that the simplest answers frequently provide the most profound solutions to our problems“
“Our minds were haunted by the nagging question: … How had the logic of this bra connection eluded scientists searching for a cause of breast cancer?
… If you tried to read everything ever written about breast cancer, you would probably not finish the task in your lifetime“
These authors theorise that it is the constriction of lymph vessels & the consequent pooling of toxins that triggers a vast amount of breast cancer.
“Bras inhibit the way our bodies normally cleanse themselves and get rid of cancer cells and toxins like dioxin, benzene and other carcinogenic chemicals that cling to the body’s fatty tissues like breast. In fact, if you find a lump in your breast, it may very well be filled with lymph fluid that was not able to move away from the breast tissue,” says Dr Shah”
Seems like a mighty common-sensical theory n’est-ce pas?
Given the efforts applied to clamping the breast, I’d like to theorise far more wildly.
Thus I maintain that the breast is VITAL to LIFE
& that we have been grossly misled
to dishonor, cheapen, ridiculously eroticise
& abuse it.
What I’m wondering is:
“If women could reclaim their breast, could they ‘return home‘ to themselves?
And if they returned home, mayhap the war being waged against humanity, would simply be over.
See here what happens to women who remove their …
because of severe dangers to their health:
“Removing her bra allowed Soma to experience her breasts in a way that bras did not permit … her breasts felt freer & more natural“
“I am amazed at the difference my breast’s feel, in particular they feel part of my body and not a separate entity“
“Being bra-free has made so much difference to my life. I have no tenderness, no PMT, my periods arrive without warning and my husband says I am a much more relaxed and contented person“
“My relationship with them had always been from the outside… how they looked as objects, rather than from any inner sense or consciousness of them”
“The organic intelligence present in the body is a force so powerfully integrating that even the slightest shift in consciousness … is rewarded by the vigor of new life & sensitivity. The body is intrinsically ready (even longing) to return to one organic unity“
“The breasts are the positive, dynamic pole from which energy is awakened, the key to accessing the female body. Energy can only be raised from a positive pole & not from a passive, receptive pole“
“A woman must remember to hold awareness in the breasts“
So let’ step back to the beginning of the breast. From the moment it begins to bud & waken it is harnessed …
… & constricted.
Young breasts are immature & akin to unripe fruit -
… they do not ripen until pregnancy & childbirth. What need is there to ‘support’ them?
Ah yes, I forgot, we must start young so that our “tits do not hang down around our knees by the time we are 40“
I had to bring Dressed to Kill back to the library to keep my fines to a minimum, but somewhere in the book they mention the ONE expert from the 70′s who created the braless = breast droop myth.
ONE expert’s words were used to fuel a gigantic lingerie-selling myth that almost the entire plump-breasted world has come to believe is true.
Remember the images of tribal women with life-lived breasts? They seemed to abound in those nationally-geograhpical-exposés around the same time?
It was done well methinks
Very well done.
Men still shudder. Women cringe. They were meant to.
Luckily in the West, women were given full support for the PTSD that ensued …
“Truthfully, bras are creating droopy, weak breasts…the breast relies on the bra for artificial support, the body loses its ability to support the breast by itself. This is why many women feel uncomfortable without a bra … There is a remarkable success rate for recovery from fibrocystic breast disease within 10 days to two weeks of going bra-free“
“Another thing, it’s a myth that breasts sag more without a bra! In fact quite the opposite has happened – it must be due to the fact that the breast ligaments are having to work again to support the weight of the breasts“
“That was 6 months ago, and my eyes are wide open now. The monthly breast tenderness is gone … As for tripping over them, NO WAY, in fact they are the firmest they have ever been in my life … The way my friend put it, and I believe it now, is that breasts need exercise just like any other part of your body, and muscles underneath can go a long way to prevent sagging if they are given a chance to work.”
“I like my breasts. I want to avoid breast cancer. I want to avoid fibrocystic disease. I want my breasts to stay perky. I don’t wear a bra.“
“After five months of being “BRA” free … I feel more feminine and definitely more comfortable“
But, but … financially bra’s are a very good thing.
The lingerie industry benefits magnificently from the bra industry.
The cancer industry benefits magnificently from breast research contributions, screening fees & treatment.
… & the people benefit by the creation of jobs, the huge choice of bra-shaping lingerie & the security of knowing that breast cancer is being ‘researched‘ & re-researched & re-re-researched & one day (in the future) the war will be won.
Sorry I digressed.
We were wondering why budding females have to be …
… strapped down.
Just how dangerous to the ‘ruling regime,’ is the unimpeded journeying of girl into the depths of the feminine?
I suggest that the breast is an amazing sensing organ & home to the wisdom of the ages?
Thus I’m wondering:
“Does immobilising the breast sever a girl’s connection to deep wisdom & natural sense?”
Is the bra a ‘cover story‘?
Listen to a woman wondering about the closing down of teenage girls:
[With] Adolescent girls, I first glimpsed evidence suggesting that what psychologists had taken to be human nature was an adaptation to a particular human landscape. Talking with girls, I experienced sudden shifts between …
… not knowing
& knowing, …
… lassitude & intense feeling, a cover story & an under-reality. I saw evidence pointing to the origin of dissociative processes – splits in consciousness … that became surprising only when I realised that they occurred in response to a break in relationship that girls experienced with shock. It was like working on a geological fault …
I saw girls beginning … to not know what they knew. Dissociation was an adaptation to a shocking break in relationship; it was a way of holding a loss …
… often said not to be a loss “I hid myself within myself” … the self that girls & women are taught to conceal, like the voice they mute or the identity they are taught to despise, is a vital, curious, pleasure-loving soul …
… I remembered my own resistance at the age of twelve … it was only later, when I was working with girls, that I felt again the pleasure of moving freely in a girls body & heard again the sound of a voice that was free from second thoughts & instant revision …
… my voice at the age of twelve.”
Did you listen?
“I experienced sudden shifts between …
… knowing & not knowing“
~ ~ ~
~ ~ ~
“I hid myself within myself“
~ ~ ~
“felt again the pleasure of moving freely in a girls body“
Is this what is lost?
When a girl should be moving fully into her breasts, is she instead driven onto the surface of her skin? Denied access to the huge power of her sex, does she begin the shutting down process that carries on for the rest of her life?
“When the positive pole, the breasts & heart of a woman, is actively engaged, the sexual act … becomes circular & spontaneous as a deep movement of sexual energy becomes possible“
“When attention in foreplay is given to a woman’s clitoris & genital area it is energetically ineffective even if exciting. She cannot become deeply sexually aflame because her genitals are of secondary importance as far as her inner body polarity is concerned. To invite her bio-energy response, the positive pole, her breasts & nipples must be engaged, & her heart warmed. The love & energy built up here in the positive pole resonates & overflows naturally showering warmth, receptivity & willingness into the vagina, thus awakening the passive pole … the root of the female kundalini energy lies not in the spinal base as mistakenly believed, but in the breasts. This is so because energy cannot be raised from a negative center“
If the woman does not open, can a man ever really know what it means to be a man?
History, the arts & culture have not been kind to the breast.
Why have the spell-casters so feared the bosom?
Why spell the mother as a BrEAST?
Let’s look at the appointed one, the bard who was in no way a misogynist (how could you think such a thing?)
“It was Shakespeare who had them bite her breasts“
“Cleopatra in an astonishing metaphor says to her: “Peace, peace, dost thou not see my baby … at my breast, that sucks the nurse asleep?” Usually the baby falls asleep at the breast. Here the nursing woman, Cleopatra, with the asp at her breast, falls into the everlasting sleep of death“
Come on now, dust your brain off for a second & have a wee think.
It’s a pretty daft story really, isn’t it?
A woman would no more apply a snake to her breast than a (sane) man …
… would clamp one to his willy!
Let’s be reasonable here.
Another amazing myth we swallowed, as we sold out the breast, was the elective mastectomy of the Amazons. Heck if a woman can hack off a boob, what can they really matter?
And besides they have a spare:
“Among Classical Greeks, amazon was given a popular etymology as from a-mazos, “without breast“, connected with … tradition that Amazons had their right breast cut off or burnt out, so they would be able to use a bow more freely … there is no indication of such a practice in …
works of art … Amazons are always represented with both breasts“
“The word “Amazon” is no longer thought to derive from “without breast” although the word may have some connection with breasts“
Meet one of the many ‘women-loving‘ GREAT Masters of Art …
George Ringo Peter PaulRubens.
He painted the undoing of the great Masonic icon, Samson by the be-witching-harlot, Delilah:
“Delilah … Standard Hebrew meaning “[One who] weakened or uprooted or impoverished“
“Her figure, one of several dangerous temptresses in the Hebrew bible, has become emblematic“
Temptress? Surely you jest?
You’re telling me that Samson & his perfectly honed physique, fell for Delilah’s lumpy ‘charms’?
Good god they look like they’ve been wrung out. That was the breast Rubens could do? And pray tell why the strategic positioning of the witch/hag behind?
What possible motive is there for anatomically-incorrecting a woman’s breast?
Did Ruby have a motive?
It was interesting then to find that the great artist Rubens …
… was a man with an agenda.
Actually make his a double.
Did he paint that to order I wonder?
Just what is it that sticks in the throats of men-y ‘great’ artists …
… when it comes to portraying the breast?
“In 2000, James Stark, oncologist and associate professor of medicine … wrote a letter to the editor of the New England Journal of Medicine noting that Michelangelo’s Night displays signs of breast cancer“
“there is a strong possibility that Michelangelo intentionally showed a woman with disease and that he may have known that the illness was cancer“
Why would he do that?
It might be wise for us to wonder why …
… tsunamis of attention have been brought to bear on breast cancer when it is far from being the number one cancer killer of women. Lung cancer beats it by a mile yet gets only a fraction of the attention.
So what does the fear mongering achieve?
Well apart from shitloads of money the fearful-female will rally & raise, it certainly disconnects the woman from her breasts …
… you do get friendly with your executioner.
Let’s return full circle now, back to where we started, back the entertainment business. We should know by now that they have a VERY definite focus & agenda – when they sugar-feed your attention with specific storylines, you are meant to swallow:
“There had been previous icons of sexuality, but the beautiful …
… well-endowed, and photogenic Jane Russell may have been the first woman sought out and hired specifically to be a sex symbol … [Howard] Hughes conducted a nationwide search for an actress with the necessary screen presence. He found Russell, who had been working as a receptionist“
“The Outlaw is one of the most notorious movies in cinema history. Conceived and produced by Howard Hughes … best known for the censorship battles … Battles that were, to a considerable extent, engineered by Hughes himself as an attempt to boost the box office take (an attempt that succeeded)“
The supporting cast included her breasts & …
“a new cantilevered underwire bra to emphasize her assets”
“Designed by Hughes himself … rods of curved structural steel … were sewn into the brassiere below each breast … connected to the bra’s shoulder straps … [and] allowed for a larger amount of bosom to be freely exposed … According to Russell, the “ridiculous” contraption was painful and she did not use it for more than a few minutes”
Applied to various devices for fastening and tightening“
So why did Hughes conceive and produce this movie with its (apparent) first ever manufactured sex symbol?
This movie is all about Jane Russell’s breasts – forget the apparent story-line – they were the story & the stars – very deliberate starring role. They put the limelight & breasts & paved the way for how breasts were to be shaped – physically, mentally, erotically, financially, hypnotically.
When we look a bit deeper we find yet another movie-conceiver who did not like women.
“With regard to Hughes’ famous misogyny, Robert Maheu, a Senior Executive for Hughes, briefly comments, “It was not so much that he wanted personal affairs with [women] but to control them in some form”
“The furore that erupted over the supposedly excessive prominence given to Jane Russell’s breasts certainly seems silly today. There’s plenty of sexual innuendo though, and an ambiguous scene that could be interpreted as a rape … More worrying is a very marked misogynistic slant, which I assume was Howard Hughes’ contribution”
As for Jane Russell … well her selling out of her ‘assets’ set her up for life & garnered her a very nice career promoting …
… (double)Cross Your Heart bras in the 70s:
“describing its structural advantages for “full-figured gals“
There has been no shortage of women willing to sell out the breast, eroticise it to hell, define how it ‘should’ look & make a killing in the process.
“Annette forever warped a generation of men’s perception of breast shape and paved the way for future Disney-kid-to-sex-symbol stars like Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears“
“Marilyn Monroe’s famous 36D boobs were boosted by one of the earliest Wonderbra style bras, it has been revealed … [the] bra holds the secret of Marilyn’s amazing boobs, and how it “added” to her on-screen presence … to lift her 36D breasts to proportions that even a modern Wonderbra would struggle to achieve … To be honest this is beginning to sound more like a piece of engineering work than an item of lingerie”
“Joan Jacobs Brumberg describes the 1950s as “an era distinguished by its worship of full-breasted women” and attributes the paradigm shift to Mansfield and Monroe“
“It has been claimed that her [Jayne Mansfield's] bosom was a major force behind the development of the 1950s brassieres, including the “Whirlpool bra”, Cuties, the “Shutter bra”, the “Action bra”, latex pads, cleavage revealing designs and uplift outline“
Interestingly, each women’s phenomenal cleavage has been held in suspended-sensual-animation for forever by the convenience of their early deaths. The memories of their mammaries have been eternally secured.
If you want to
underwire undermine the heart of feminine energy, who else would you use but the one who usurped the title …
then mix with a breast-fearer …
… (well who does that to a woman?)
& serve to a fascinatingly gullible audience:
“The Blond Ambition World Tour was the third concert tour by … Madonna … It was a highly controversial tour, mainly for its juxtaposition of Catholic iconography and sexuality … named the Greatest Concert of the 1990s by Rolling Stone … French fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier designed the costumes for the tour, including the now-infamous cone brassiere“
I can’t cover the entire movie-industry-breast-deconstruction here, but there’s a few more examples to look at to get a clearer picture – & maybe, just maybe you now have some ideas now with which you can do some good. It’s time you know.
A criminal movie came out in 2000.
It was a ‘cover story’. Using real life events to sell push up bras to women all round the world.
So let’s call it out for what it was.
Julia Roberts was no mere accident in the main – I’ remember hearing the outcome of a poll around that time, that she was the woman most other women wanted to be like – now that was clever!
“The Erin Brockovich look has created a lot of buzz“
Below are three more women who sold out & allowed their breasts to make themselves rich, & the women of this world, poorer.
Look closely do you see even the slightest understanding that their breasts are the place that calls life into life?
“My relationship with them had always been from the outside… how they looked as objects, rather than from any inner sense or consciousness of them“
“A woman must remember to hold awareness in the breasts“
“The bra is currently enjoying a revival thanks to a few stratospheric pop stars. Enter Lady Gaga … where she sports two machine guns on her bra … Followed by Katy Perry… in a frothy … whipped cream wielding bikini. In between, there’s Kylie Minogue who wore a Gaultier-designed cone bra in a photoshoot for her album, Aphrodite and Rihanna who’s worn similarly inspired get-ups on stage“
Mind you the men need to take responsibility too.
It appears to be a seriously-distorted female-fearing male-energy that is driving this thing – some deep fear & loathing of the breast – perhaps because of what is possible when male & female energies truly connect – and that is only gonna chnage if & when, the breast of the woman opens. We have a long way to go in a very little time.
I was heartened to find the real love of real men, in some of my research – men who whole-heartedly stood behind their wives or girlfriends as they sought to heal breast illness by removing their bras. Men who were willing to question their culture & their training & allow the breast to return to fullness.
I think their rewards will be great.
I’m knackered now, so I’m leaving out bra burning & the push to bottle feed babies between 1940-80 – but I reckon you can figure it out.
I’m leaving you with a double epitome of Hollywood Breast Fear.
“The Fembots are extremely sexy female robots … with breasts that are cannons. Frau uses them to seduce and kill Austin. Her plan almost works, but Austin does an overly-exaggerated striptease in response, which drives them beyond their sex limit and causes their heads to explode“
Breasts can kill a man, while a man’s sexuality can overpower a woman? That’s not reeeeally how it works, you know.
Rather strange that their heads should ‘pop’ off – that’s pretty much how Jayne Mansfield died.
And for your second epitome (courtesy of Paulo again), here’s Woody Allen to expose the danger of breasts - thankfully he has a solution. Hmmm … where have I seen that before?
Now go forth & be kind to breasts.
“Felicity, the companion of content, is rather found in our own breasts than in the enjoyment of external things; and I firmly believe it requires but a little philosophy to make a man happy in whatever state he is” Daniel Boone
“A woman must remember to hold awareness in the breasts“
I was on the Celtic Rebel’s radio show last Sunday.
We talked of breasts
