I love her intonation when checking whether one breast is lower than the other, as well as her smile at the end of that clip. Hot.

In fact, both of the lower two on the left (her right breast) are really cute.

Goddamn.

Is this site aimed at women or men? It should be "Check out your breasts" for instance.
Does the models sprightly tone of voice and cheerful smile de-sexualise the content. As one would expect of a medical site.
Or does it enhance the sexual atmosphere?

Hm, I'll have to subject the flash movie to more extensive study.

No, like a library. A variety of different breasts meant to appeal to a wide range of people. You can take the ones you are interested in home with you - free - and bring them back to trade for something new when you get bored of them.

If I was the playful sort I'd parody this site at "checkoutyourbreasts.com" with a man as the model. It's a serious message though as 25% of the 1,600 men who are diagnosed with breast cancer die from it. (re: National Breast Cancer Foundation)

So, male metafilterians, check out your own breasts..be they a 36a or 44d.

It brings to mind the Cam Exam, a chuckleworthy "check your breasts" spot from Canada.

(The Cam Exam gets bonus points for being targeted to people who have breasts, as opposed to people who like looking at breasts - a significant distinction, given the message they're trying to get across.)

What it does is de-naughty it. Americans associate being 'naughty' with sexuality, and so removing the naughtiness makes things seem less sexual. On the other hand, a woman having a healthy attitude towards sex can be nice as well.

If their objective had been to make them look full and large they would have chosen a model with large, full breasts in the first place. I think the idea here is to pick a charming woman with very ordinary breasts so that women viewing this wouldn't be distracted by mental comparisons or unreasonable popular culture ideals.

I wasn't kidding about wanting to post the Cam ad first, because I also found that funny and, yeah, very Canadian. I posted about the puppetry guys not because I wanted to punish anyone here, but because dick and ball play fascinates me, seeing as I don't have them at all. And I think most women would be fascinated as well.

Tits are funny. Dicks are funny. Those Aussies are funny (and they aren't hurting themselves any more than the model on that site is hurting herself.) It's OK if people like big ones or small ones or anything in between. Play with your own, play with someone else's in a way they like, and that's all hunky dory.

And before you accuse someone you don't know of saying something they didn't, maybe you can just unclench a wee bit.*

"The evidence on breast self-examination is clear, there is no benefit to breast cancer mortality and results suggest that breast self-examination may do more harm than good."

Indeed, Breast self-examination increases the number of false positives and unneccessary biopsies.

This isn't a medical intervention. It's a marketing intervention. Their own materials state:

"Our events give our partners the opportunity to gain high level visibility through creative and impactful activations that will leverage brand/product exposure."

That was cute as hell. I love Canada. If you, too, have problems checking out your breasts, come on up here. We'll give you a hand.

jonmc: agreed, jouke. but they do have to big enough to swung back and forth against my head like sandbags.
History has been made!!! For perhaps the first time, I agree with jonmc!
it's even better if they're big and firm enough to bop away at like a boxing speedbag.
Well, that didn't last long...

Anyway, we didn't really agree... not so much 36DD as 32F, really. 36 in band size only if she's 5'7" or taller, and then you'd want a 36G/H or so. Something in a Linsey McKenzie or Ewa Sonnet. Mmmmmm.....

In addition to her very nice breasts, she's very pretty, too.
Oh, yeah, and that's a good public service she's doing and stuff.

MetaFilter: Check out our breasts, jonson.

She's charming and cute, in addition to the pretty face, nice body, and delightful breasts. I loved how she looked like she was about to break into a cheesy grin.

I really rather doubt men's parts could be made nearly so sweetly.

I think we already had a checkoutmyprostate.com. It was called goatse.cx.

i have never paid so much attention to a lesson in my life. Agree with all other remarks here. Mesmerizing and educational!

If their objective had been to make them look full and large they would have chosen a model with large, full breasts in the first place. I think the idea here is to pick a charming woman with very ordinary breasts so that women viewing this wouldn't be distracted by mental comparisons or unreasonable popular culture ideals.

Exactly. Though nice, those are about the most nondescript breasts I've ever seen. With all the excited metafilter members (!) I'm guessing it's been a while since they've actually seen any (real, that is).

But they're nice little breasts on a sweet and flirtatious young woman who is not only playing with those breasts, but inviting the viewer to play with them, too. There may be more spectacular breasts out there, but I think the guys are responding to the friendly, amateurish and accessible feel of the whole thing.

After all, when people gasp and squeal over Cute Overload, it doesn't necessarily mean that they haven't seen any adorable kittens recently.

You'll probably accuse me of showing off (and probably rightly so. It's not often I get a chance to brag about myself) but how does a 5'4" 34J sound? (Now if only I had the flat tummy to go with it...)

How would you like it if I did that to your testicles?
Quite a bit, actually.

Good heavens, talitha_kumi. I was wondering whether or not I should casually saunter past jonmc, and you bust out with unbosom yourself of that confession?

From limpi's link:
"In the meantime, those of us who have battled against the breast self examination lobby since 1991 can at last say, in the words of the editorial accompanying the publication of the Shanghai trial, that routinely teaching and doing breast self examination is dead" (emphasis mine)

That's odd, 'cause my girlfriend is training to be a nurse and as an assignment she did a self-examination poster for a campaign, demostrating how to correctly examine your breasts for any signs of cancer. So, your article from 2003 proclaiming that the practice is now well and truly dead is somewhat inaccurate as it is still being taught to nurses in 2006 in the best medical centres in London.

Somehow I don't see self-examining as some kind of malevolent force that needs to be fought against...

That should be limepi's link.

In conclusion, I would like to point out that- jubblies!

limepi's Ehrenreich link is an excellent read:
No, this is not my sisterhood. For me at least, breast cancer will never be a source of identity or pride. As my dying correspondent Geni wrote: "IT IS NOT O.K.!" What it is, along with cancer generally or any slow and painful way of dying, is an abomination, and, to the extent that it's manmade, also a crime. This is the one great truth that I bring out of the breast-cancer experience, which did not, I can now report, make me prettier or stronger, more feminine or spiritual-only more deeply angry. What sustained me through the "treatments" is a purifying rage, a resolve, framed in the sleepless nights of chemotherapy, to see the last polluter, along with, say, the last smug health insurance operative, strangled with the last pink ribbon. Cancer or no cancer, I will not live that long of course. But I know this much right now for sure: I will not go into that last good night with a teddy bear tucked under my arm.

Breasts are good for you. Thereby bringing the credibility of peer review to what we have all known. Time to cancel the gym membership!

Perhaps a lot of men will be attracted to the site. I enjoyed looking at it myself, and she is indeed extremely charming. And now, I am motivated to get my g/f to watch and learn too, so at least in my case me the aim of the video will succeed.

*No prostate exam reference intended, of course, because that wouldn't be funny.

Perhaps, but the Scrotal Safety Comission is actually pretty damn funny. Mentioned previously here.

Flirtatious? How do you figure that?
posted by five fresh fish at 8:55 AM on April 27, 2006


She was putting on a performance meant to capture people's attention. Her smile and tone of voice, and the tease about taking off the t-shirt, gave off a flirtatious vibe to me. If it didn't read the same to you, that's cool.

Yes, the video is meant for women (gay and straight -- and many of us straight women often like looking at pretty women), but I think it makes sense for that same subtle flirtatiousness to draw in men, who will talk about the video with women they know, who then may be encouraged to examine their breasts.

[And I wrote that even before seeing Bovine Love's comment above, which I had accidentally scrolled past.]

she's perky, but not sexy, imho.

LimePi I think you need to find a more malevolent force to rail against than breast self exams. I for one have one friend that found her own cancer with a self-exam at 30 years old. There wasn't a mammogram in her future for at least 10 years by which time it is fairly certain she would be quite dead.
Needle biopsies cost insurance companies money - but are relatively well tolerated by most people. Seems like little downside to preventing what, when untreated (and even when treated aggressively) is a fairly deadly cancer.

I thought it was really good.
I like the emphasis on that it dosent matter how you do it just do it.
Also, as hot as that girl tottaly was, it is still a much better visual than pictures.
