A personal story on The Tyranny of the Female-Orgasm Industrial Complex – “The female orgasm is a kind of Rorschach test—an abstraction upon which each new generation of doctors and scientists can project its worldview, almost always to the benefit of men and their assumptions about normally functioning female sexuality. But if you think the debate over why women have orgasms is complicated, try solving the mystery of why some women don’t have them.” [The Atlantic]

Recently my wife purchased some new bras online from a company that specializes in fittings for women with smaller breasts. To pay for the items she used my Paypal account. That meant I received the emails on purchase confirmation, shipping information, etc. I also found in my inbox an email from the CEO of the company. Normally, I would not open this, but for some reason I did. In it, she of course thanks me/my wife for the purchase. She also talked about why she started the company. She noted that when she went through puberty the term "flat chested" was an insult and that she was tired of sales people trying to sell her pushup bras. She also claimed that society creates body image issues for women with small chests. As a man who loves small breasts this never occurred to me. So, I asked my wife if this was true, and she confirmed it.
Once the new bras arrived a postcard saying "Welcome to the Itty Bitty Titty Committee" was in the box. This got me thinking. What if there was a real Itty Bitty Titty Committee? A committee designed to empower women with small breasts. A committee where men (or women) had to appear in front of to prove their worthiness to sleep with and hold relationships with women who have smaller boobs. I know there are men who love "flat" or "small chested" women because I am one of them. I would gladly sit in front of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee and profess all the reasons I find women with small breasts so damn sexy. Small chested women need to know that they are desirable too.
