Women of the 1600s, from queens to prostitutes, commonly exposed one or both breasts in public and in the popular media of the day, according to a study of fashion, portraits, prints, and thousands of woodcuts from 17th-century ballads.

i go topless even now! breasts weren't made to be sexualized. they were made to serve the single purpose of feeding our young. it is only in the past few hundreds of years that our western societies have sexualized the breast. and in doing so, we have started to influence other cultures to do so as well, making the world a bunch of prude little girls. hehe.

Hey, I think the sexualization of the breast has been great.

Most women have a lot of nerves up there, too.

the mall, no... since males aren't permitted in without shirts, the bus... i never take the bus... just walking around, yes. anywhere that men do, i will. i draw the line around children. (for obvious reasons)

Well, I beg to differ. Men thoughout history have been drawn to signs of fertility. One can argue the barbaric idea that large breasts are a sign of fertility gave birth to the attraction men have for breasts. So I think yes, breasts are a sexual feature. But I am not saying what you can or can not do with your body, more power to ya for feeling comfortable topless.
