More Boobs

Today sees the end of Breast Awareness Month.  After my post “Look at my Boobies” of a few days ago, I thought I would ask a few friends and acquaintances to take pics of themselves #Mamming.  I thought it would be a fun exercise to post them all on my blog encouraging women to have regular check-up’s and mammograms done.


Little did I realize this would be such a challenge and I got virtually no response.  It seems as though all the women out there seem to think it is a great idea, but they are all very embarrassed about their boobs and any form of suggestion that they even have them is taboo.

Ladies – your boobs are beautiful.  Look after them.  Be proud of them.  And don’t be shy to acknowledge you have them.

So ……. the only photo’s I managed to get was by convincing a bunch of varsity students (after a few drinks) that it would be cool to do this exercise.  So this is what they sent me (in the middle of the night):

And of course I had to include another pic of my own boobs – why?  Well because I absolutely love them and I don’t know what I’d do without them.

So ladies – look after your breasts. Take testing and self- examination seriously.

Happy Halloween all!

Look At My Boobies

Boobs seem to be the topic for the month.  And rightly so as October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I am sure you have all noticed the various awareness campaigns and there are three in particular that have caught my eye.

The first campaign was sent to me by a friend on Facebook.  Women are requested to change their Facebook status to “I like it on……..”  adding where you like to put your handbag when you get home. Last year the same campaign ran but you had to post the color of the bra you were wearing …and it left men wondering for days, why women were posting colors, seemingly at random.

So women are posting comments like this for this year campaign:

  • I like it on my desk
  • I like it on the kitchen counter
  • I like it on the bedroom floor
  • I like it on the couch

The second campaign is called #Mamming. #Mamming is the act of laying your (clothed) boobs on a flat surface like a counter or any other object and taking a picture of them and posting it online.  (In the spirit of the campaign, I have posted a pic of mine below)

I came across this campaign in one of our local news sites – View article here.

Why would you want to do this you may be asking.  Well, it is to emphasize the importance of having a regular mammogram done. Having a mammogram done is one of the most uncomfortable things a woman can do – right up there with going for a pap smear.

Michelle Lamont and Michele Jaret are the two women behind this campaign and has women all over the world resting their breasts on surfaces and posting their pictures online with #mamming.

So dear ladies – get out there and take some pictures of your boobs and send them to me with #mamming.  Let’s see how many of you are in support of this campaign.

The third campaign involves Harley Davidson – and as you all know, I have a fetish for all things Harley.

Harley Davidson’s guiding philisophy is “No one rides alone“.  And they have decided to support Breast Cancer Awareness month with the sale of Pink Label Merchandise.

Harley-Davidson riders share a special bond of support both on and off the road, whether it is for a flat tire or something deeper. The proceeds of the sales will go to 2 organizations – National Breast Cancer Foundation’s “Beyond the Shock®” program and the Young Survival Coalition.

In support of this campaign, I went out and bought a Pink Harley shirt – not that I needed an excuse to visit the Harley shop but thought it deserved a special trip for this campaign.

Your Man Reminder

I love clever advertising and I especially love clever advertising with a message.  Yesterday I came across a YOUTUBE video which featured half naked men (my favourite) with a message to deliver.

The video is by a Canadian company called Rethink Breast Cancer and stars various extremely good looking men explaining how to check your breasts. 

If you go to the Rethink Breast Cancer site or to the App Store, you can download an App to your iPhone or Android phone which reminds you to check your breasts – and you can even choose the hunky guy who will be reminding you.  Some of the features of the App include:

  • Customize – Update the App to fit your personal liking, with features that let you chose your man, his pose and more.
  • Hot Messages – You’ll love the attention your man gives to you, with messages like “Any guy would be lucky to have you” and “Give your breasts some TLC.”
  • Reminders – Tailor your calendar schedule with settings for weekly, monthly or surprise reminders directed by a sexy man of your choice.
  • Education – The App includes a special “signs and symptoms” tab to hone in on the importance of early detection.
  • Get Checked – Use a variety of scheduling options such as doctors’ appointments and many more.

So ladies – download the App and don’t forget to Feel your Boobies.

PS – watch the video all the way to the end….
