* 17-year-old Creator/OliviaHussey was forbidden to attend the premiere of ''RomeoAndJuliet'' (1968) wherein she played the female lead, because of the nude scene. [[ViolationOfCommonSense That's right, she was judged too young to see ''her own'' nipples on screen.]] The same scene shows Romeo's bare butt too... which of course she saw anyways while they were filming.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, the ''Shinji Ikari Raising Project'' manga showcased nipples on female characters as well, though the lower regions of their bodies were either covered up by someone else or via CensorSteam in full frontal shots.

For some strange reason, males seem to be completely exempt from this. Maybe it's the extra [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail tracts of land]] on the female chest?

reasons for this age-old DoubleStandard is one for the sexuality books and goes ''well'' beyond the scope of this wiki.

to:

* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', the standard rules of male nipples being shown but female nipples concealed by various means is generally followed. However, the opening scene of the anime stands out as unusual for having [[FemmeFatale Rize]] completely naked, and concealed in shadows. Which seems silly, since the outline of her erect nipples is plainly visible when she stands in profile.

*** Considering Jiraiya wore something similar that clinked as it was removed, it's more likely she wears chainmail.



*** Leading to a rather strange situation where you demand a slave give you his clothes, amounting to a jock strap and leather bands attached to a ring and he is annoyed with the PC, even though he leaves wearing more clothing than he was before.



*** You think that's bad? Subverted AGAIN in the episode, "The Magic Bush", whIch featured a scene of an inflatable doll floating through the skies. Despite looking like a human woman, the nipples were left completely uncensored, like they didn't care.



* Go to Las Vegas and collect those escort calling cards they hand out on the Strip. Most feature pictures of completely nude prostitutes staring provocatively at the camera while posing in a highly suggestive fashion, perhaps with one or two [[GirlOnGirlIsHot "friends"]] -- yet their nipples and other unmentionable parts are ''always'' covered by little stars or starbursts. Really, Vegas?
** ''Possibly'' [[JustifiedTrope justified]], as those cards might easily find their ways into the hands of a child, which would then get the escort agency brought on charges for "[[ThinkOfTheChildren corrupting a minor]]".
*** That doesn't justify it at all actually, since to a kid a couple of stars over the naughty bits will not make it less confusing/corrupting.
** They could still in many cases be prosecuted under truth in advertising, copyright, and defamation laws. Many of those cards feature photos of British glamour models illegally copied from British magazines such as ''Magazine/{{Loaded}}'' or ''Front'' in the expectation that Americans won't recognise them. A particularly notorious example was [[http://www.lucy-pinder.tv/forum/images/lucy-pinder/lucy-pinder-front-magazine-00-00-0-3-8071.jpg this pic]] featuring Lucy Pinder, Natasha Marley and Katie Downes - none of whom are prostitutes, and all of whom take great offence at the suggestion - which resulted in Lucy Pinder's management taking legal action against the Vegas operation concerned.

* Danish Childrens cartoon series ''Thomas & Tim'' had the pervert member of the titular duo grope a topless mermaid, with nipples fully visible, in one episode. There was a comment from a concerned parent on this episode in a newspaper during a later rerun, but the issue was about the mermaid not rejecting said groping any more forcefully than slapping the guy's hand away and expressing mild annoyance with his actions, not anything about how dangerous it is for the kiddies to see nipples. The series was intended for kids aged 4 and up, and aired following Sesame Street and similiar shows. Denmark is cool.

* In the ''BeavisAndButthead'' episode "[[IncrediblyLamePun Butt Is it Art]]," the duo steal nude paintings of women from the local art museum and cut out the "boobs" (as well as the "butts"). Surprisingly for the show's basic cable airing, the nipples on said paintings are uncensored. This occurs again in "Figure Drawing," in which the boys draw crude stick figure doodles of a nude model during a figure drawing class. The stick figures are drawn with unrealistically large breasts and uncensored nipples.

* Played with in ''Anime/KillLaKill''. The males have their nipples clearly visible (Mikisugi's actually ''glow'' for no stated reason), but the girls do not. Usually this is justified by convenient CensorSteam and {{Scenery Censor}}s, just like with the other part of the male anatomy, but in the very last episode, [[ItMakesSenseInContext everyone is stripped naked]], with the girls' nipples being noticeably absent when the boys' aren't.

* ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' averted the BarbieDollAnatomy in the volumes where nipples are clearly shown. The sequel "Darkness" has this in every chapter.

to:

* Apply to all the ''Anime/TimeBokan'' series, especially on the villainess that regularly end up half-naked.
** Doronjo in ''Anime/{{Yatterman}}'' classic series and OVA is the most famous example; special mention to episode 54 where there is a close-up of Doronjo's nipple very detailed. Averted in the 2008 remake and live-action movie.
* ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' averted the BarbieDollAnatomy in the volumes where nipples are clearly shown. shown.
** For some bizarre reason, the second anime avoids this with one exception: Mikan and Yami lack nipples. Even though the even younger-looking Nana and Momo have them. Makes no sense.
**
The sequel "Darkness" has this in every chapter.chapter where nipples and genitalia are drawn, but the latter are obscured or otherwise hidden, and are only indirectly revealed.
