American boobs remain in the sun on European beaches

Posted on September 1, 2009 by peacefulyorkshire

yahooavatar15As an American in Britain, no doubt you will have gone away (or will go!) on holiday to a European beach at some point. The question as you spread out your beach towel, lather on the spf 105  sunscreen is then, will you go topless a la monokini like your European sistahs??

If so well, oh, dear me, you might be one of the few if you are in France! It seems that French women these days consider themselves too “prudesque” to be baring their breasts on the beach these days. According to a recent Time Magazine article, the numbers of French women going topless on the beach have fallen significantly, with 88% of French women surveying calling themselves “priggish or modest”. So who does that leave to be baring boobs on those European beaches? Why, apparently its the American ladies on holiday, of course! From the article:

The contrast with U.S. practices is hard not to notice. American women visiting France these days have few qualms about going topless. And plenty of young American women are only too happy to playfully flash their wares in exchange for a few beads. In some ways, the puritanical swimsuit now seems to be on the other torso — a new French squeamishness that will doubtless leave some Americans, well, titillated.

Although I wonder where did Time Magazine get this information that it is the Americans that remain topless. What, did they go around asking each woman what nationality they are from? As if!!

And to you readers, were you topless this summer on European beaches? I can fully report that unlike France, going topless in Spain is thriving on the beaches, just for the record—

    If you are feeling very daring, there are nudist beaches in Brighton! Plus there are beautiful and secluded beaches on the Channel Islands, which are secluded… should you want to let it all ‘hang out’.

    Finally a useless fact: Half of Brits that get sunburnt, do so in the UK– so be take care ;)

    hi there Frisky lady. Thanks for the info! In my blatant prejudice against British weather, I had ruled out topless bathing on this little island in the north sea. Until I saw your comment which had me curious about this lil female utopia, that is.
    For all you readers who might have a fancy to go try it out– some more info on the Kenwood Ladies Pond at Hampstead Heath:

    Who needs a vacation as an excuse to “get your kit off”? If you’re in London during a hot spell hit the ladies’ pond at Hampstead Heath. Bare boobs for miles and, interestingly enough, lots of wafty tendrils of ganja smoke. Mega boho vibe going on. Not sure what was more difficult: trying not to stare or trying to avoid a contact buzz. Regardless, my pasty American bits were covered as they would be whatever country I was in. Besides, sunburned boobies hurt! No amount of pot can make you forget that painful fact.
