Why is that most erotic/porn pictures show women with nipples that point upward and not nipples that point downward (i.e. ‘pointy’)? White women sometimes do have ‘pointy’ breasts, but it seems like there is a negative attitude about showing them or thinking of them as attractive.

It seems to me that Western notions of what a female body should look like in order to be considered beautiful correspond largely to a norm of Caucasian body shape, plus youth, plus possible breeding and nurturing abilities. Thus, women with full breasts, healthy skin, glossy hair, good teeth, shapely hips and bottom, etc. are considered attractive. Pointy breasts are, as you noticed, not that common, and may be additionally reminiscent of breasts sagging after repeated births and breast-feeding, as far as the shape goes. Depending on a cultural definition, this might be seen as testifying to a woman’s (established) fertility, thus desirable, or testifying to a woman’s age (post several births) thus less desirable. I reckon in a Western cultural context, the definition tends toward the latter, while many African cultures tend toward the former and thus find pointy breasts particularly desirable.

If you look at the shape of famous actresses and pop stars breasts over the last hundred years you will see trends from each era. Breast shape is subject to fashion just as everything else is. Bra shapes change to try and give us a fashionable shape. For example have you ever noticed how women in films from the fifties always have what my friends call ‘sharpened pencil breasts’.

As a white female with ‘pointy’ nipples and breasts, the only images I had growing up similar to myself were of ‘natives’ in National Geographic–never mainstream images. Even now, only fetishized versions of my body appear, especially when combined with a healthy posterior. Indeed, the black men in my school admired my figure long before others (thank you boys for the hope!) My shape gave me an early self-consciousness, but I believe ultimately it made me accept, and even appreciate, different body images.
