We’ve dealt with fictional or Photoshopped triple-breasted women before. The idea that someone might actually aspire to this state — well, see for yourself:
We are not making this up:
An American woman has claimed to have had a third breast surgically added to her chest.
The 21-year-old, who calls herself Jasmine Tridevil, wants to be a reality star.
She posts videos of her daily life in Tampa, Florida, on Facebook to “show the struggles she faces because of her surgery.”
“Reality star” jumped the shark years ago; it appears to have doubled back and taken another spring. And hey, how many of those struggles would you be facing if you hadn’t added extra bewbage?
Oh, it gets better:
Tridevil has also claimed she had the surgery because she didn’t want to appear as attractive to men.
In one of the videos, she said: “I got the surgery because I wanted to turn off guys. I know it sounds crazy but I don’t want to date again ever. I still like to feel pretty.”
Now we’ve had this discussion before:
Question: would a man be more turned on or weirded out by a third mammary?
Answer: I suspect most would be squicked out, though you may be assured that a certain number would be utterly delighted with the prospect. (Rule 34 would seem to support this premise.)
That said, some of the latter group, were they presented with the genuine article, as distinguished from mere fanfiction and photo manips, might well flee in terror.
And three in a row is more appealing, I’m inclined to think, than any triangular arrangement. Then again, that may be just me.
I watched her video, which runs a little under a minute; I might have dealt with it better if she hadn’t used Radiohead’s “Creep” for background music. And unfortunately for my particular worldview, she has fairly nice legs.
Now to sit back and wait for the “Hoax!” announcements. Please tell me there will be “Hoax!” announcements.
Update: Snopes is on the case.
