** In the original ''Manga/GhostInTheShell'' manga, the android inside which the Puppeteer escapes from custody is a female model and is shown with all secondary sexual characteristics visible. However, the liner notes for the second manga volume, ''Man-Machine Interface]]'' state that Creator/ShirowMasamune stopped drawing Motoko's nipples for a while in the third act (when she spends a lot of time diving) to save time. Her actual body appears once as a HumanPopsicle and is drawn fully nude with nipples and pubes.

* In the ''ComicBook/YokoTsuno'' album "On The Edge of Life'', young Magda spends most of the album floating around in a life-preserving tank wearing only a diaper, but her nipples are entirely obscured by the devices attached to her chest.



** It is also noticeble about ''[=Survivor=]'' that during a game involving women contestants bobbing for items in a tub full of gloopy brown mud, several bikini tops were dislodged exposing breasts and nipples. But since the women involved were by then slathered from head to waist in a coating of mud, the bared breasts were not visually bleeped out and left in full uncensored camera view.

* Subverted in the Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' episode "Transitions" where the detectives barge in on Hailey, a teenage trans girl, while she's in her room changing, resulting in her being shown topless with visible nipples for half a second. Presumably, it passed standards and practices because the character was played by a teenage boy.



* ''Magazine/{{Loaded}}'' depended on candid photo-shots of C, B, and very occasionally A-list celebrities. In an age where the Internet was only beginning to become widely adopted, it popularised the genre known as "nip-slips" and "downblouses", accidental unposed shots of celebrities accidentally baring a bit more flesh than they thought. Even in a posed shot and even if the subject had stipulated "no nudity", they were not above printing any shots from the shoot where a nipple might have escaped. A famous front cover showed celebrity Ulrika Johnnson in what was apparently just a standard cleavage shot: close examination revealed a nipple had escaped and was peeping above the top of her blouse. This was no error or oversight - and added to the mag's notoriety.

Though media can safely display [[{{Sideboob}} much]] [[AbsoluteCleavage of]] [[{{Underboobs}} the]] 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=]. They might cost you $550,000 if you [[WardrobeMalfunction show them at halftime]] during the SuperBowl. 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.

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 the middle 1980's, BritishNewspapers and TV went into a feeding frenzy of prurience concerning a strapless blue ballgown that Princess Diana wore to a diplomatic reception. The gown had exposed an awful lot of the former Miss Spencer's decollétage, and ITV's flagship news show ''Series/NewsAtTen'' devoted a long slot to debating whether or not it had slipped down far enough to expose a royal nipple (the right one). After frequent replays and slow-motion close-ups, ''[=NaT=]'' decided it was just a piece of the gown's decorative edging causing a shadow that ''seemed'' like an exposed nipple.

* Subverted for the first time ever in a Disney film in ''{{Disney/Moana}}'', as the child Moana in the opening sequence isn't wearing a top, and thus her nipples are clearly visible. This is apparently only acceptable for the very young girls on the island, as those who appear to be over 6 or so wear tops like the teenage girls and women.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' usually doesn't have this problem, however Daenerys' scenes in Qarth did not depict the book's fashion for women, which involved entirely exposing one breast, as the directors thought it would be too distracting for the audience.

to:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The show usually doesn't have this problem, however problem. In fact, it's beginning to look like most of the adult actresses have clauses in their contracts that require them to appear at least partially, if not fully, nude at least once. However Daenerys' scenes in Qarth did not depict the book's fashion for women, which involved entirely exposing one breast, as the directors thought it would be too distracting for the audience.

* ''Film/TheWomanInRed'': There are no clear direct topless scenes, which is balanced by the scene of pubic hair when Charlotte frantically gets out of bed when her husband comes home.

* An underwear sales presentation for the shopping channel Creator/{{QVC}} showing two very attractive women wearing hideously unflattering undergarments went viral on YouTube. When the British sales pitch reached QVC viewers in the USA, it provoked lots of complaints. The reason is apparently that both models had very visible erect nipples under their vests. This highlighted the gulf between British and North American social attitudes to visibly erect female nipples under clothing; it's no big deal here but is apparently almost as bad as toplessness to the USA. [[note]]American style guides for women's clothing do not like this ''at all'' and consider it socially unacceptable.[[/note]]. Strangest of all, [[http://www.insideedition.com/headlines/12976-curvaceous-qvc-lingerie-models-gain-online-admirers-real-women-real-curves this American website]] ran an edited excerpt from the show but still considered it necessary to run a CensorBox over the chest of a woman who was otherwise fully covered! [[ValuesDissonance Link is presumably NSFW in the USA but OK everywhere else]]....

*** The show gets rather creative when it comes to not showing nipples, to the point where one begins to wonder if the Major even ''has'' them.

Confoundedly, they'll show pretty much everything else, and nipples on ''androids'' are A-OK.
Ostensibly this is because Motoko is a living character in the show. The nipples shown during the construction of androids is ok because they are not animated yet. Think of it like old Greek art sculptures. They don't move or aren't moving yet, so society has no problem with showing it.

** The manga of ''Manga/InuYasha'' similarly shows Kagome bathing nude in the second chapter, though the anime is {{bowdlerized}}.

** They really stretch the limits in the show, sometimes. In one episode you see a crook being questioned watching porn while answering the questions; you see the reflection of the screen on his sunglasses, which just barely avoids showing the entire act, and does show the female actor's nipples. But since it's just a vague reflection, it's still OK.
