Negotiating the nipple cover-up
18 Sep 2017

In the Autumn issue of Index on Censorship magazine, we explore the censorship of the female nipple, which occurs offline and on in many areas around the world. We speak to photographers and magazine editors who are covering up and the women who are fighting against it, one nipple at a time.

Part of the controversy lies in the double standard. Male nipples are totally fine, despite little to no difference in their appearance. With that in mind, we present to you a male nipple. You can cut this out and put it over a female nipple. Your nipples will then be ready to go out in public.
