NIP food for thought

If the argument against NIP is that breasts are sexual and should not be exposed in public due to this association, why is the same argument not used to fight spanking in public?
Just a rhetorical thought for the day.

I don't have an issue with public breastfeeding and I don't spank my kids, but I see a clear difference. Spanking has no sexual connotation. Yes, some find it sexually stimulating to be spanked, but that is because they get aroused from being disciplined like a child, not from it being a sexual act itself.

I disagree. Breastfeeding has no more sexual connotation than spanking.

Yes, breastfeeding is a mouth in contact with a breast, but spanking is a hand in contact with a bottom, so...

It would be one thing if they pulled the childs pants down, but otherwise, you do not see the childs bottom, you do see the breast, that is the difference. Breasts themselves have way more of a sexual connotation that spanking. It is the display of the breasts that people get angry about, not what the baby is doing with them.

I guess it depends on what an individual likes. In the bedroom I, personally, enjoy spanking- clothed or otherwise- more than breast play. And it has absolutely nothing to do with a secret desire to be disciplined like a child.

Either way, both breasts and spanking can be used in the bedroom for sexual gratification.

Again I disagree.

Thge vast majority of the time, the breast is NOT visible unless a person happens to look while the child is latching on.

Most breastfeeding mothers are just as loath to show their bodies as most other women. We don't have the desire to give strangers a view of the bodies we see as lumpy, stretched-out, and otherwise imperfect.

On top of that, plenty of people are, indeed, offended about what the baby is doing (seeing it as sexual rather than nutritional) with the breast. They are the ones with the problem, and we can't avoid feeding our children because of a perverted person's problem.
