* The ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' games include [[BikiniBar strip clubs]] with dancers who never expose anything "indecent". This in a game depicting a wide variety of destructive and violent acts.

* The final battle of the second ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' film decided to show Yoko and Nia's breasts uncensored in several shots from the Tengen Toppa Ganmen sequence onwards; amusingly, Yoko's clothing ([[{{Stripperiffic}} minimal though it was]]) seems to ''completely disappear'' just for the sequence. Considering how {{badass}} and HotBlooded the sequence is, you'd be forgiven for not noticing them.

* ''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."

When it comes to prepubescent girls, it's a bit complicated. On one hand, since the breasts aren't present and child anatomy is androgynous, topless little girls can be considered non-sexual. On the other hand, since the female nipple is so sexualized, the practice of covering the female nipple from infancy onward will be in play and it can be considered child pornography to show a female child with an exposed chest. Needless to say, cultures vary on this view.

For some strange reason, males seem to be completely exempt from this, even overweight men whose breasts would be much larger than a petite woman's. However, philosophizing on the reasons for this age-old DoubleStandard is one for the sexuality books and goes ''well'' beyond the scope of this wiki.

** Played UpToEleven in the Adult Party Cartoon episode, ''[[Recap/RenandStimpyAPC1x04NakedBeachFrenzy Naked Beach Frenzy]]'' with the [[GagBoobs big breasted]] girl in the beginning taking off her top. It continues with two women taking a shower, tits shown and everything, and Ren & Stimpy are "shower attendants".

* Referenced in the EddieMurphy film ''Film/{{Boomerang}}'' where a perfume commercial (featuring a character played by Grace Jones) is being edited and the main characters go to great lengths to figure out whether a shot of her bare chest features a nipple. Eddie Murphy's character insists it's just a shadow. Eventually, the editor does a close-up and declares "It's a nipple, 'cause I'm drooling".
* ''Film/BramStokersDracula'' has Dracula's brides topless when they molest [[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.

* 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 censor bar over the chest of a woman who was otherwise fully covered! Link is presumably NSFW in the USA but OK everywhere else....
