Has ‘National Geographic’ Gone Back To Printing ‘Topless’, i.e., Naked ‘Tribal’ Women, Again?

As I must have mentioned many times before ‘National Geographic‘ is the one magazine that I insist on getting, without interruption, over the last few years.

I like reading and looking at the pictures in Nat. G. I have also been doing so since the mid-1950s.

Now as most folks my age, i.e., in their 60s, especially the men, will remember, no doubt with a wry smile, Nat. G. used to be notorious for printing nude pictures of tribal folks. I am sure that many a man reading this will probably think back and realize that it is possible that the first boobs that he ever saw in print (if nothing else) was in an issue of Nat. G.

I can’t say I have made a study of this but I do recall hearing talk about it. I thought Nat. G. had gone American (very hypocritic) Puritanical and STOPPED publishing nude pictures.

So, a couple of days ago, when I was looking through the January 2014 issue, that we had just got, I had to take a double take when I saw the following picture. It was very tasteful and SUBTLE. They had a bunch of pictures of topless men and some of those men, as is the wont the world round, had bigger tits than the women. Plus, they were very clever. She is kind of androgynous. So unless you were paying close attention you might have missed it all.

I have no problems either way. I don’t need to see boobs in Nat. G. But, I have absolutely no problem with them showing such since I never have had a problem with topless women. I find the American ‘revulsion’ hilarious. As a good European I am used to seeing topless women in beaches and as I used to say: ‘after the first 10,000 tits they all start looking the same’. But, I am sure that there will be those, especially the younger readers (though, they, unlike us growing up, have the Internet), who will appreciate Nat. G.’s attempts to be more hip again.

My job, as ever, was to note the trend, for posterity.
