Did French women have really stopped sunbathing topless?
Is topless sunbathing over? It certainly is in France, according to French Elle, if the coverline on its new summer issue is to be believed: "La Fin Du Topless Sur La Plage?" – which translates, verbatim, to "Is this the end of toplessness on the beach?"


Ever since Brigitte Bardot took off her top on the French Riviera in the 1960s, the correlation between topless sunbathing and women's liberation has been entrenched in French culture as a sign of true equality. Many others followed suit and the breast and beach were reclaimed. News that so few women are now going topless (just 2% of women under 35 said they did) seems extraordinary – and depressing.


"Globalisation and Americanisation of women's portrayal and sexiness in France has pushed away gentle (and generally harmless) French eroticism towards porno, frontal, hyper-sexualised consciousness," she says. "Nudist, beach-like freedom is not what it used to be ... breasts no longer feel innocent or temporarily asexual."...

Though probably universal, this attitude towards topless sunbathing has had the biggest impact in France. ..."

But: "It is still the norm in Germany, according to one recent survey, which suggests almost a third of Germans and Austrians sunbathe naked. A straw poll in the UK also suggests it's equally de rigueur: one in six women we asked said they have or would sunbathe topless: "I don't think about skin cancer or being photographed or activism when I go topless," says Jess, 32 of north-west London. "I just want an all-over tan."....."

Seems like there should be a middle somewhere between the Muslim black sack and the western dental floss bikini. Modesty in dress seems classy and innocent.

Re: Did French women have really stopped sunbathing topless?
It never really was a trend. Here in France we always referred to a woman that went topless as being marginale, salope, libertine ou folle.


The impression that Americans and the English have of us being some great sexually liberated nation is very false. Nudity is mostly seen as pornography and that is it's considered vulgar.

France is a very conservative and mocking nation.


Trust me most French women would be like Muslim women except that they want to show off their designer clothes and hairstyles. Plus when it comes to sex they want the titillation of having a "dirty secret."

If you're a Frenchman than French women are very much bad in bed. But if your an American they somehow become good and do all the things they refuse to do with Frenchmen even after expensive bottle of champagne

Re: Did French women have really stopped sunbathing topless?
The pendulum swings, nudity on the beach gay pride parades and I am sure others, that seem more about sex and nudity than any serious statement. You are all muslim now, and they dislike nude women and hate homosexuals. Just watch as they become a part of your world, wherever they invade, I mean become citizens they will be accommodated. Enjoy, you hated on the Christians so long that everyone wants them dead, at least in any country where the Muslims are a majority.
Happy beach burka, but of course, the section for women only.

Malheureusement je suis français. Malgré qu'il y a un endroit plein de libertins qui s'appelle Cap d'Agde... Nous les français sommes constipés.

Bref la situation c'est bien la situation.


Look at my flag... I'm french and you can have your fantasy about French women if you wish but I have said the true situation on France.

This American woman hasn't stopped and I'll continue to do it every time i'm at a secluded beach in St. Lucia.

To steal a line from another AC who was commenting on the sex appeal of Greek women, I have to ask why, as most Hungarian women look like Leonid Brehznev.

That's what the Book preach:
Modest Apparel

As you say those two are extremes and because the extremes have met they will be forced to go the modest approach, because the muzz go crazy when they see a half naked woman.
That's why they love to hang on the beach being the perverts they are even though they cannot swim.
