There’s a trend in Japan that’s affecting the men over there in a weird way. Believe it or not, the guys are being urged to wear nipple covers. You know … like pasties.
These nipple stickers are often used by long-distance runners to prevent chafing, but in Japan, they’re flying off the shelves because the men are convinced that visible male nipples – even the outline of nipples through a shirt – are considered a turn off to women.
And so, many Japanese guys are flattening out their nipples – kind of like Ken dolls.
