** Similar revisionism on the part of the {{ITV}} network saw edits to the nudge-nudge double-entendre-laden movie ''Film/CarryOnCamping''. The film opens with sex-starved leery Creator/SidJames and Creator/BernardBresslaw taking their girlfriends to the screening of one of those 1950s nudist movies. Their intent is to soften the girls up to visiting a nudist camp. For most of the period 1975 -- 2010, TV screenings of this film shrugged and allowed the extracts from the nudist film to be broadcast uncensored, on the grounds that this is about as sexually arousing as a cup of cold tea. But in December 2013, ITV abruptly censored out these extracts, leaving the early part of the film somewhat lopsided. You see the character reaction, but not what they are reacting ''to''. When approached to explain, ITV explained that as a family network, they had obligations to a family audience. They did not explain why previously they had let the scenes stand, and felt no such obligation ''then''... (The scene where Creator/BarbaraWindsor's bikini top flies off and a nipple is briefly exposed was allowed to stand, though).

*''Series/DoctorWho'':
** According to Elisabeth Sladen, the female companions of the 70s were often prevented from wearing bras by Costume in apparent hope of getting ParentService past the radar. (According to Tom Baker, he occasionally mistook Lis for a Dalek.)
** The scene in "The Talons of Weng-Chiang" in which we see Leela's nipples apparently went down with very little controversy at the time. This may be because the scene is non-sexual in tone, with [[InnocentFanserviceGirl neither Leela]] nor [[NotDistractedByTheSexy the Doctor]] acting differently, and the camera not [[MaleGaze leering at her]]; it might also be because the show was already being criticised in general for being too violent and sexualised such that a particular shot didn't cause any more annoyance, even to MaryWhitehouse.

* ''Songs of Solomon'' from ''Literature/TheBible'', a whole song devoted to sex and romance, has no qualms about mentioning breasts when it comes to describing a virtuous relationship between a married couple.
--> "Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle, which feed among the lilies."
--> "Let her be as the loving deer and graceful doe; let her breasts satisfy you at all times; and be ravished always with her love."

Though media can safely display 99% of female breast and ''every'' part of the male breast, female nipples[[note]]that is, the areola and the actual mammary opening[[/note]] almost guarantee an [[UsefulNotes/MediaClassifications R rating]] from the [=MPAA=].The sight of it is so HarmfulToMinors that you must click a release to see it on the Internet. The United States Supreme Court upheld an ordinance requiring strippers to [[http://supreme.justia.com/us/529/277/case.html cover it]] under a pastie. Indeed the very sight of the female nipple is so damaging to the male brain that the cost of healing their psychological damage is $550,000 if you [[WardrobeMalfunction let one slip at halftime]] during the SuperBowl.

* In ''Manga/DragonBall'', men who don't look too alien have nipples. Early in the series, Bulma's nipples were reveals a few times (when Yamcha was accidently peeping her in the bath, and when Kuririn/Krilin flashed her boobs).

* ''Film/BramStokersDracula'' has Dracula's brides topless when they molest [[Creator/KeanuReeves Keanu]]...err...Jonathan Harker. But they get tops on in the broadcast TV version. It is also noticeable that there are five major female characters in this movie, the three brides, Lucy, and Mina. Of these, only Mina doesn't have a topless scene (she does have a transparent nightgown scene, though), incidentally, the only one played by an American actress.

* This is one of the various topics that Bill Maher was talking about when he was defending France from the likes of Conservative American Politicians. When Bill was going over the good parts about what France has over America (let alone in general) he mentions on Nude Beaches are much more accepted in France than in the US and in his words "Because they are not a nation of 6 year olds who scream and giggle at pee pee parts!"

* ''Series/NipTuck'' has a couple of rather bizarre examples. In one episode, a male reporter is trying to understand what breasts are like (related to his wife having breast cancer), and he is shown with a set of female breasts, but apparently since they're attached to a male head, it's ok to show them. In another episode, a woman is trying to become a human Barbie, and wants her nipples removed, and her breasts are only shown after the nipples are gone.

* Long-running British science documentary show ''Series/TomorrowsWorld'' tried to predict future applications for cutting-edge science and technology. It ran for twenty-odd years and possibly thousands of inventions, and the most anyone can remember about the science is that it successfully predicted sat-nav fifteen years ahead of time. Well, maybe that and presenter Judith Hann's nipples while she was explaining some scientific advance, whilst standing in a rather cold swimming pool..... for a fourteen year old boy at seven on a Thursday evening, this was like bonus time. Way back in the 1970's, Judith could out-Dimmock Charlie...

** In the episode ''Singularity'' the character Cassandra has her left nipple visible for a few seconds during the episode. What is odd is that the character is an 11-12 year old girl, as is the actress herself. It is possible that it passed censorship due to the scene being medically related (she was being defibrillated), the shot being reasonably short and/or the actress' breasts being not yet developed.

* Music/BritneySpears released two versions of the video for Gimme More, while both have glimpses of her painted on pastie covered nipples the "uncensored" version shows slightly more.
* The Russian band Music/{{Tatu}} also made two versions of the video for their song beliy plaschik. The censored version is quite PG although in the uncensored version there are many topless shots of the then pregnant Yulia and full nudity from Lena.
