This video was originally created for the Topless Topics Youtube channel, hence the warning at the start. Consider this my test video for Vimeo!
Here's the description from the Youtube upload:
Don't forget to take bets on how many seconds this stays up before Youtube takes it down after deciding it's "pornographic!"
I had more I wanted to say on this subject, but it was already getting too long and I actually had plans to do something today other than film and edit this video. Oh well. x.x

Urban Dictionary's definition:
The Spine from Steam Powered Giraffe's blog post "Just another reminder..." http://davidmichaelbennett.tumblr.com/post/55670805355/just-another-reminder (again, David is an awesome and caring person. If you took one joke out of context and immediately assuming he's a sexist, racist bastard, you're a knee-jerk reactionary and I'm sorry but you need to grow up and stop making snap judgments about people you've never met)

Does anyone actually read these descriptions? Super brownie points if you do. I mean, as in, if I ever get famous enough to get invited to a nudist convention or something, I'll be sure to bring brownies with me and you get a free one. If you see this bit, put it something in your comment about brownies and I will officially know you are a cool person who actually has an interest in the subjects of my videos and aren't just here to stare at female nipples! YAY YOU!

No Twitter yet because Twitter requires you to attach it to your phone number and fuck that noise.
As well as lots of stuff about the benefits of breastfeeding overall. Big thanks to Erica for taking part in this video and showing solidarity by letting her son nurse while we talked about the many wondrous facts about breastfeeding! Keep reading for announcements and useful links~

And now, the part of the video I actually intended to record: some of the most pressing and sucky parts of being 8 1/2 months pregnant. Lots to do with pee, for one thing. XD

This video was made for my old Topless Topics Youtube channel, which I left after trying unsuccessfully to navigate their nonsensical and hypocritical rules re: female!only!nudity. Posting it here both in case anyone on here is curious about the switch, and also because the video took quite a few hours to film and edit and since Youtube has already age-restricted it and will likely fully ban and remove it any day now, I figured maybe I could give it second life here :p
Now, hopefully, the new week has started and I can upload the thrilling part two (sarcasm) to my "I snored my husband out of the bed" epic saga. Turns out even paying $10/mo for Vimeo Plus only lets me upload 5gb of video a week, which in modern times is barely a 5-10 minute video and we all know my propensity for talking :\ The next stage would allow 20gb of video, but that's $200 a year and no monthly option. With the baby on the way and everything else, that'll have to stay on the way-way backburner until I win the lottery or somesuch.
Anyway sorry for the lack of interesting videos lately...really hoping I'm able to film some more once I go on maternity leave (amid all the exhaustion from dealing with post-childbirth pains and a screaming newborn). I have so many video ideas, it's just so hard to find time, energy, lack of back pain and willing participants the few hours a day I'm not at work ;_; (#firstworldproblems amirite)
Anyway enough rambling in the video comments no one will read. See you when I see you! Viva #freethenipple!
Damnit I didn't realize until it was too late that my camera decided not to focus, so the whole video is a little blurry x.x Anyway, hope you enjoy my recap of the Portland Erotic Halloween Ball I went to last night!

Continuing to upload my various past videos from Youtube to Vimeo since I quit trying to make Youtube a safe haven for equal rights toplessness. This video was shot while I was pretty tired and over it, so apologies for the lack of energy. Most of my videos are much more interesting, I like to think :p
