Ladies: Show Us Your Nipples! Redux

The female breast is one of nature's exquisite successes, and in my experience (both personal and pornographic), the nipple thereon appears in near infinite variety. Big ones, small ones, long ones, short ones, pink ones, brown ones, we love them all and marvel at their diversity.

Ladies, it is time to find out where you fall on the spectrum of nipply goodness. Help us quantify the sublime and add to the sum of human knowledge! Modesty prevails, so this is an anonymous poll to encourage your participation.

This poll is specifically about nipples, so no other breasticle dimensions are necessary. Please select one choice in each category. In the event your nipples fall somewhere outside the choices offered in each category, please just do your best and pick the closest selection. For the purposes of this poll, "aroused" includes cold weather, silk pajamas or anything else that turns on the high beams. Comments encouraged.

Are the kids still out of school this week?

This seems like a very strange and rather personal thread.

Do women really normally go around measuring the size of their nipples, in varying states of arousal?

OP, how much did you have to drink for this poll to seem a good idea, and what was it, that you remained compos mentis enough to list the extensive multiple choice options?

FI you've been around since 2000. I'm not without fault and I've tripped over my feet on the board more than once... but honestly, this kind of crap is pretty bad form.

This thread would be a tad less creepy if the OP hadn't limited it to the ladies. Us menfolk have nipples too.

Hey you got one option isn't that enough for you?

I love that after 13 votes, 11 of them are men - and at least one person has selected every single option.

Oh, I think it's definitely less disgusting.

But certainly more creepy. It's the detail in the options (not to mention the enthusiasm in the OP) that really pushes it past the edge of acceptable, to me. 35 multiple choice poll options. And not one of them was "None of your fucking business". Poor form...

What really pushes it from "weird SDMB poll about nipples" to "creepy weirdo poll", for me, is the unaroused vs aroused nipple measurements. What, does the OP want us to sit here and play with our tits and then whip out a ruler?

See now, the number of guys I know for whom that describes "Saturday" (measuring penis rather than nipples) means I think that's exactly what the OP expects.


Not all guys obviously. Just enough to make it possible.

This thread strikes me as a bad idea. Given some of the threads I've started and my general lack of common sense, that's really saying something.

For shit's sake, Fear Itself. There's plenty of porn sites out there.

I'm so far from being a prude that I've visited nudist camps, resorts and so on hundreds of times. But this is weird and creepy and I'd feel like I was giving the OP something to whack off to. Yuck.

Ohhhh, three brown ones! Oh yeah-- two are between 1/2 and 3/4 inches while unaroused!! Oh, oh, ohhhh! Oh yeah...please...don't stop....voting!


Sorry, I couldn't help but visualize what whacking off to poll results might look like.

If you're thinking of making this poll, don't forget to include such elements as the degree of shriveled-ness, the size differential between the left and right nut, and the amount of hang (i.e. low-hangers or high-risers?). It's these kinds of fascinating details that really make these polls shine.

I'd say hairyness is an important factor too.

Good call! Natural hairiness, plus is the hair left to grow wild, trimmed, or shaved? (As Dave Chapelle would put it, "Smooth like eggs, bitches!")

Judging by the OP, I don't recommend watching anything from their movie collection.

Hacked account maybe? Fear Itself isn't on my radar at all, but this is a pretty weird thread for a non drive-by poster.

I find it disturbing that someone wants to know more details about my breasts than I can be reasonably sure of without a measuring tape.

Is it just me or are almost all of those nipples from white people? They haven't gotten a tenth of the spectrum.

I, too, will not be voting in this poll.
