Some people... in this thread.... /sigh.
I love breasts. Highly sexualized. I once was at a pool and there was this young adult going in and out with THAT body. You know what I mean? Not merely curvy. She was bbw. But no erection. Nothing. Why? Because I was grown up. I remember sometimes in gradeschool getting erections and having to hide them. I didn't even get them from looking at girls. I just would get them and then try to mentally will it away. But past a certain age I've never got an erection in public, even though I've seen very sexxy woman. My radar will light up and I might indifferently think to myself "She has nice shape." or "Nice rack." or "Short skirt." But they're simple thoughts which just acknowledge what I see in my environment. When I"m in the public it's like I'm on autopilot and my sex drive is disabled.
I do think I could go to a nude beach no problem. Vast majority of breasts aren't sexy. And even if a woman was sexxy, it's not hard to control reactions. Honestly, clothes are sexier anyway. I've known for a long time that naked woman are less sexually appealing to me.
I do think there's a good bit of confusion in all diretions in this thread. Everybody also has different sexual appetite. Some people like X and some people like Y. Some people are asexual. Some are sexually addicted.
Woman think they understand men and men think they understand woman. How about we all just stop judging? As long as man isn't drooling on you or harassing you, leave him alone. If he stares at you too much, tell him to stop staring. He will stop. If he doesn't stop, he's harassing. Use common sense. Stop pretending you know what guys are thinking. And stop worrying about things so much. Most things will pass and are harmless.
And sometimes guys will taunt or flurt with another woman verbally and their guy friends won't say anything to stop them or discourage them. Happens for different reasons, but more guys need to realize friends are only friends when they can be critical of each other. (Ex: Friends don't let friend drive drunk.) And the woman sometimes won't say anything, making the guy who's being offensive think it's ok. So the bad behaviour continues until sexual harassment is filed and the guy goes to court.

Here is a woman's comment. No for two reasons.
1. I don't want to expose myself to men with the mentality that I have seen in the majority of the reply's in this thread.
2. It's uncomfortable as hell to walk around without support. I would rather wear an uncomfortable bar than deal with the back ache of going without.

Haha, it does all seem a bit dark ages and prude doesn't it!
Topless is normal at all my local beaches here in SW England, and we have a couple of fully nude beaches. In the 20+ years I've lived here, never heard of any problems.
Perhaps it's just US men who can't control their lusts?!
