Health risks[edit]

Recently, studies have shown that pasties can prevent certain health risks.

What risks are those? Flapdragon 10:55, 22 August 2005 (UTC)

My guess is that he meant 'present' certain health risks - but what am I doing on this page anyway?

Images[edit]

We're all aware that (rude, thus far) user:davidshankbone is very proud of his photos; he's got his name plastered all over them. As per Wikipedia:Conflict of interest, Wikipedia is not a forum for advertising, nor a vanity press. We earn the trust of our peers, and the public, by placing the interests of the encyclopedia first. Any editor who gives priority to outside interests may be subject to a conflict of interest. Placing your photo first above an existing photo, and your rude edit summaries, show open conflict of interest. I'm not getting into an edit war with you, but your edits have now become a matter of record should there be further unpleasantries with you. I made no personal attacks in my edit summary following you, you would do well not to be rude in yours. Chris 02:12, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

My contributions stand on their own, and you can check out my user page to see. Yes, I'm proud of my photos. Regardless, there was a vanity photo with an advertising-oriented caption that is found on three articles. I removed the photo from one article, and you told me not to remove a photo (see WP:OWN) from a page, as if it is permanent. There was no personal attack (that policy is too often thrown around just when someone doesn't like what was said). I told you to follow your own advice, which you didn't. And my WP name is no more vanity than it is for you to sign your edits. It's not COI. You can bring it up with any number of admins and they'll tell you you're wrong. --David Shankbone 02:28, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
I dispute that the subject of the first photo is in fact a "girl" as the caption alledges. I suggest that it be relabeled as a "person with burlesque pasties." Thank you. Pygmypony 18:56, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
As per WP:OWN, the burlesque photo was not my own, and I had left the original caption as it was on the photo itself, that was not an advert, it was sourcing. My stance that your edits were a personal attack still stands, based on the wording of your edit summaries. I never said your WP name is vanity, just your spamming of your own photos over pre-existing ones. Along those lines, must both photos in this article be garish or ugly, as they are now, where the topic itself sprouted from a modicum of style? Chris 20:08, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
Chris, it's your personal opinion that those photos are garish/ugly. One photo is of burlesque pasties in action, the other shows more than enough examples of women wearing pasties, and in no less or more flattering a light than the stripper with pasties. WP:OWN doesn't come into play here at all with my edits, although with your hurt tone and alleged victimization from one brusque edit summary you certainly seem to need to review it yourself. Perhaps if your wiki-stress level is this high that you haven't gotten over it by now, you should take a wiki-break. --David Shankbone 20:22, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Headlights[edit]

Is that person being serious? No way that is actually a term used in polite conversation.

  • Politeness or otherwise is not so pertinent but it is doubtful if it is notable. I don't think the article would suffer from losing the part in brackets. Mutt Lunker (talk) 21:18, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Pasties in the lower body[edit]

I was searching wikipedia for this information, yet there seems to be no information about that. I'm editing the article, but my knowledge is very superficial, if someone can collaborate more that would be great. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Trylks (talkcontribs) 17:05, 9 November 2009 (UTC)


No. This just doesn't belong here and is misdirection. By this logic a gem glued in the navel or on the center of the forehead would also be a pastie. There are costume terms for clothing with glues onto the pubic area but the term pasty is not among them. This additional copy should be deleted. 67.189.206.198 (talk) 07:34, 21 February 2010 (UTC)judson rosebush

That's a different thing, this has censoring purposes and is thus a pastie. --95.16.19.22 (talk) 04:45, 25 April 2010 (UTC)


Nipple Tassel[edit]

Is there a way to get searches for 'Nipple Tassel' to redirect to this page? I tried to create a page separately with that title but it duplicated too much of this page's content. However I am aware that a lot of people are not aware of 'pastie' as the alternative term so may not find this page, which is why some kind of like or redirect would be useful --Linguistliz (talk) 16:13, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

agree, and done IdreamofJeanie (talk) 17:01, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

I don't think[edit]

Adhesive bra you redirect to this article. Wrong description.I'm incontinent and wear Tena Slip Maxi (talk) 18:48, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

How to pronounce[edit]

Could someone clarify how this is pronounced - to rhyme with 'tasty', or 'nasty'? Thx. 91.85.181.71 (talk) 18:38, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Pasty (the food made of filled pastry) rhymes with "nasty"; these "pasties" rhyme with "tasty" because there were stuck on with paste.--Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 16:10, 24 January 2014 (UTC)


Merkin/maebari/no string bikini[edit]

These are different things. The Merkin emulates some kind of pubic hair, from very realistic to very "artistic". The maebari is rectangular. The "no string bikini" is a triangle that does not emulate pubic hair. Hence three different things. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.100.59.194 (talk) 16:23, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
