Okay, so what kind of crowner? We are currently discussing expanding the trope, and renaming it accordingly, with a possible splitting off of specific subtrope(s) if the relevant examples are numerous enough.
If the trope is expanded to cover more than just breasts, then it should be renamed to reflect that. Conversely, if the trope is not renamed, then it doesn't really make sense to expand it either. So it's the same question.
It occurs very often in the kinds of fiction that this wiki doesn't like to write about, though.
Also, there's an established real-world term for it, and where possible we should default to using existing terms rather than terms we made up.
And 550 inbounds for a sex-related trope? That's really not a lot.
@137: I don't read the kind of stuff where this actually happens, but I've seen a fair number of (mostly joking) references in shoujo that we have pages for (if I come across it in the future I'll try to post the examples). References to the concept are not uncommon.
Calling someone a pedant is an automatic Insult Backfire. Real pedants will be flattered.
I think we should scrap this crowner, and do a new Single Proposition that actually describes in the "At issue" box the rationale for suggesting an expansion and rename for the trope. IIRC, in many cases much of a crowner's voters don't bother reading through the TRS in the first place, hence they might not understand why the trope needs a rename/expansion.
Okay, so what do we put in the "At issue" box? We don't want it to be too long, nor do we want it to be too short or lacking in important points. Reasons so far are that it's not thriving despite a previous rename, and that it's been noted that the core concept is much broader than the trope's launcher had thought.
Alternative Titles: Breast Sponge

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
