Does this indicate that many young American woman do not feel pretty, desirable or wanted?
To induce these feelings of desire in men by physically striping seems almost compulsive.
I suspect very very low self esteems as the catalyst of this behavior....
Is our society/media somehow poisoning or brain washing our future matrons/ Or is this normal healthy sexually liberated behavior?

I would have to add that this kind of malaise is simply one of a deep seated conditioning of the mind where each of us is subjected to boundaries of deterent to freedom of open thought and feelings.
Hence we are all in this society trying to assimilate in to our socio-religious-economic - backgrounds of separation. When in fact the other part of our Self wants to be able to be primal and be set free and dance naked in abandonment with the lillies of the open grassy fields of Oregon.
Though it is also widely known that Men of all races colors and creeds in all ages and annals of history have notoriously been known to be wanton and imbecilic in their own behaviors even more so with the onset of an intoxicated amber liquid or two or... three and half dozen?
This is simply a pressure release valve that lets us for a moment in time and space at least live out our own deepest desires with no fear of judgement or prejudice of any kind... that is till the morning after

I posit two possible explanations:
1. That the raucous party atmosphere and alcohol lower inhibitions, thus exposing latent homosexuality amongst young women. I think Kinsey's study proved that just above 40% of women harboured "some" lesbian desires, and that women are much more fluid in this respect than men (who are usually either completely straight or gay).
2. That the camera and t-shirt obtaining mayhem is a distraction and a cover for lesbians in the closet... ie it is an excuse which they can later say "oh Im not a lesbian, I just wanted those beads/ tshirt".
Either way, I am somewhat judgemental of the women who would participate in such activities. They obviously dont have a very high estimation of their own worth.

Honestly, doesn’t anyone think about the consequences of their actions anymore? The concept of freedom without responsibility has taken over society. Then they whine when the consequences catch up to them.
All actions have consequences. I don’t think that parents and teachers are teaching this anymore.

There are a lot of those kind of commercials in Australia too.
I think it is about wanting attention (which is not a bad thing necessarily) and feeling detached from people and society, so you feel you can do whatever you want to.
Take celebrities, quite a few of them get married and end up having an annulment or getting a divorce not long after. I'm pretty sure they don't think it through first before they tie the knot. And this isn't a very good example for the rest of society.
I think though, that it is a common human feeling to not feel desirable or wanted.
To become better as a society, I feel we need to show less judgment but be more empathic and understanding with people and what they go through. I think we've become too detached as a society and let our differences separate us. Everyone needs to know that they are loved and wanted.
But yeah, anyway
10/4 -- It seems this is just another example of the ever widening void of the human condition... Funny this about the girls in the commercials though... Many men would give a left eye to be in the company of such pretty gals. I am certian many of these gals get heaps of attention...So I get it --- but I really don't ... If you dig-

I was a security guard for a hotel on South Padre Island in Texas. The GGW video crew satyed at the hotel I worked at. These girls in the videos are so drunk it's wrong. What you don't see is the pestering and mob mentaility of the guys behind the cameras. The parties tended to attract alot of guys who "take" the girls home when they pass out too. The cops were called several times when we caught men carrying passed out women to thier cars to take elsewhere. Some were also found to be in possesion ghb a common rape drug. You do the math. I would be suprised if the girls even know whats happening or going on in most of the situations, or at least until its far to late.
