    On a perfectly hot day, before the arrival of the Semitic genital shame philosophy from the Middle East, Northern Europeans, young and old walked around without feeling obscene, immodest, filthy or indecent. Or did they feel shame? What does science have to say about this? Is shame science or psuedo-science? Is genital shame from abject psychology or is it genetically based?

    Clothing (or a lack of it) generally derives from environmental necessity and/or religious/cultural attitudes. In ancient Egypt, children went au natural and wore sidelocks. Adult males sported linen skirts and adult females wore linen sheaths. One could usually tell the station of a person by the fabric grade. The thinner the fabric (transparancy), the wealthier the individual.

    Not a biology major I guess.

    Culture, laws and annoying men.

    culture and being oogled by weirdos.

    Large breasts are considered desirable by some men in different cultures. Breasts are for feeding babies they are not genitalia, that fact that some cultures find them sexy does not make them anything other than milk glands.

    I wonder If men who were not breast feed are obsessed by breast is because they were not breast feed. As yoi are saying culture , the tabu could have started when started to be bottle feed.?
