There’s hardly a woman in Western culture who doesn’t have at least a couple of bras, including a favorite one or two for when she wants to feel extra sexy. She can also make a sexual statement by not wearing a bra. And what teenage boy doesn’t equate success in dating with whether a girl let him put his hand under her bra?
