* When showing the results of plastic surgery on a transexual woman on a medical show, the before shots were masculine nipples uncensored, but following breast augmentation the feminine nipples were censored. They showed much of the swell of breast and the only part censored was the nipples which hadn't actually changed. That we had already seen.

They showed much of the swell of breast and the only part censored was the nipples which hadn't actually changed. That we had already seen. The reverse is true of transgender men. Before breast-removal surgery, their "female" nipples are covered, but once the fatty tissue is removed, the flattened chest is now suitable to be shown in its entirety. Indeed, the freedom to go topless is often a personal milestone for trans men.

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, even without intent to sexualize. Needless to say, cultures vary on this view.

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 babies and girls younger than 7 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 might still be in place. The producers may think it better to play and it can safe than be considered slapped with child pornography to show a female child with an exposed chest, even without intent to sexualize.accusations.

For some strange reason, males seem to be completely exempt from this at all ages, 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.

* Bethesda Softworks found themselves in the middle of a minor controversy when a fan-made mod was released for ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', which removed the default underwear tops for female characters and revealed their blurry but anatomically correct upper bodies. Probably in response to this, Bethesda has delayed the release of modding tools for ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' until ''after'' the holiday buying season (which is far from making the game impossible to mod, which is why it's known that, yes, they also removed the "details" from the female body texture.)
** And on the subject of Bethesda games, it seems they tried a little too hard to avert this in ''Fallout 3'': The base character models had both briefs and a white T-shirt for both sexes. One may notice if you take the armor (consisting mostly of scrap metal and leather straps) off a female raider, she's actually wearing more on her upper half now than she was "fully clothed".
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', on the other hand, had no problems with showing nipples (pixellated though they may be, it being a 1996 game). Of course, the game also included a (short) IKEAErotica sex scene in one of its books...
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', statues of Dibella (the goddess of art, beauty and sexuality) are nude, with visible nipples and an artfully draped cloth covering the lower region. This one probably got a pass from the ESRB, as it's artistic nudity InUniverse.

"[[ChainmailBikini fully clothed]]".
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] Azura has played with this significantly in her appearances throughout the series. In ''Daggerfall'', her appearance is actually topless and anatomically correct (pixelated though it may be). In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', her statues are topless but lacking detail, playing this trope straight with some BarbieDollAnatomy. (Her avatars, which appear in both ''Morrowind'' and its ''Tribunal'' expansion are much more modestly dressed.) In ''Skyrim'', her statue has AbsoluteCleavage instead.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', on the other hand, had Daggerfall]]'' has no problems with real issue showing nipples (pixellated though they may be, it being a 1996 game). Of course, in some sprites. Azura (as mentioned) and the game also included a (short) IKEAErotica sex scene in one of its books...
sprites for Nymphs are both topless with nipples depicted.

* ComicBook/BlackCanary was the first DC heroine to have her nipples exposed on panel in ''The Longbow Hunters'' but this apparently got a pass since she was being tortured at the time and was therefore not intended to be titillating.

* There was an old series called "Beggars and Choosers," about running a network television station. One episode featured this as a subplot, with two characters trying to figure out whether or not an actress' nipple was peaking out the top of her {{Naughty Nurse Outfit}}. Ironically, this aired on {{Network/Showtime}}, which was still famous at the time for its abundance of softcore skin flicks.
