Is a plastic female form offensive if undressed?
I am purchasing a body form to use for display for my body contouring applicator wraps. The majority of my customers are women. I am concerned that at a public event (such as an expo), the female body form may be offensive to some. Would it be better to purchase a male upper body form, or a female. The photo is the female form I am considering. Maybe with a sport bra on it? The wrap is applied to the stomach area. Offensive unclothed? Wrap is white, so would purchase a black form to showcase it best.
It should not be offensive... if you are truely concerned you can dress the form in a bathing suit which should conform to the figure of the form and still allow you to apply your contoouring applicator wraps... I suppose the real answer to this question will change from audiene to audience... DMT.
I guess deep down I am a bit concerned. Since the audience will change, I still should plan ahead and go with dressing the form. Thanks for answering!
are your wraps wet? A suggestion would be to cut out pictures of women from a magazine(s) and then glue them to the form...like a collage... if you then shallacked (spelling) the whole thing it would be covered and yet still just a form...
Yes, they are wet, however, I was going to decoupage the paper from one on the form, so it would not actually be a "wasted" one. I like your idea of covering it with the pictures....women of all shapes, colors, sizes. Very cool!
As long as it has no "ahem" features it should not offend any one. We've all seen store mannequins undressed.
I don't think I would use the word offensive as the female body is beautiful. Having said that, I would cover it only because if you are in a public place young men may pass by and get silly, or young children may be giggling and it could take away from what you are trying to accomplish.
I don't think it's offensive at all. I do however think it's strange that plastic female mannequin's breast are often quite detailed and the male's anatomy is pretty much non existent. I worked in a clothing store when I was in high school and I remember wondering why they put nipples on female mannequins. Does this mean we need to put a bra on her too? How does this flatter clothing? Who wants to look like they've been standing in a walk-in fridge all day? Not me! I think it's only fair that the male parts get an over hall just to even the score;)
I think it depends on the culture of the place in which you are doing your demonstration. In Eugene Oregon where I went to school there are regular public events in which women go topless with no problem. On the other hand, the plastic forms you are using might not go over well in Salt Lake City because of the strong Mormon culture. The fact that you are thinking about this might be a sign that the venue is too conservative for this kind of thing. In the end, it's your call.

However, in the man, the soul's feminine essence is hidden or downplayed. In the woman, the masculine essence is hidden or downplayed. We benefit in marriage through experiencing the essence which manifests predominantly in our partners. In this way marriage helps us get in touch with the deeper...

Are you concerned about drinking from plastic containers and its longterm effect on your health?
