You got it: tits. Mammaries. Bosoms. We all got 'em - born with 'em, in fact. Apparently you can display the male chest in all its glory on Facebook, as I've often witnessed, or bountiful cleavage, suggesting the forbidden, formidable, foreboding presence of these most taboo of innocent body parts. But even sharing an illustration of female nipples sent some anonymous prude into a Janet Jackson halftime type meltdown. Now my Facebook page, which I need to remain active for business networking purposes, mainly peddling my own pulp fiction, is probably being watched more closely, and could be in jeopardy of shutdown. Because of an old movie poster. For a movie that was never even made.

Reluctantly, I heeded Facebook's puritanical but authoritative admonition and preemptively deleted other found and scanned images from my Facebook photo albums that may be deemed in violation of this suddenly strict no-nipple policy. Instead, I'm reposting them here, along with some others from my private files I knew would cross the line, so I didn't bother to post them on Facebook. Personally, I love looking at female breasts. I find them arresting. As long as I don't get arrested in the process. Some in our pro-violence/anti-sex society want to defend the right to bear arms. I'm defending the right to bare breasts.

So here, just for the hell of it, and because censorship really pisses me off, is a gallery of gorgeous gals in all their glorious gall, a pulpy parade of prurient pinup pulchritude, an exotic, erotic exercise in excellent exploitation. They all have two things in common. Enjoy.
