The Princess Complex

posted by on September 16 at 15:29 PM

Here we have a visual problem. The women in the middle (a Swazi princess—indicated by the red feathers—at the reed dance ceremony) is, one, modern and, two, in a very traditional situation. Her face is Vogue, but her breasts are National Geographic. How should we look at her? The traditional breasts negate the modern face (we are seeing nothing)? Or the face negates the breasts (we are seeing everything)? Or should there be no negation and just a coexistence of the two codes (everything/nothing)? Or should we look at the face as the surface (the modern city), and the breasts as the buried past (the ancestral underground)? But these breasts are fresh; they are not old, cold, or dead. Both face and breasts are youthful, yet one is about the youth of now and the other about the youth of the past. How does one resolve this visual complex?

OMG are you kidding me? Another excuse to post some boobs. Great work.

Clarification please: what exactly about her tit makes it "National Geographic"?

Posted by Sean | September 16, 2008 3:32 PM

goddamn i'm so fucking bored with Charles's intellectualizing his fascination with titties.

Posted by Steven Miller | September 16, 2008 3:33 PM

Charles, there is no visual problem here. You're just looking for an excuse, any excuse, to show some boobies.

The only thing unusual here is, since the breasts are National Geographic, you can post it without an NSFW tag and get away with it.

Seriously, one of the dumbest posts I've ever read on here.

Resolve it the way you always resolve these problems: lock yourself in the bathroom and fupfupfupfup.

@6: Fnarf, it's "fap." Don't drag Fup, one of my favorite books, into this.

I think he was just jealous of Dan's tit post...

steven, coming from you, the master of complicating all matters relating to desire. it must be a compliment in disguise.

You resolve it by putting your face twixt those luscious twins, shake your head back and forth and go brrrrrrrrr

Posted by Jkm | September 16, 2008 3:42 PM

what does it mean to be national geographic? are you sure they are national geographic?

Posted by infrequent | September 16, 2008 3:42 PM

What about the white lady? Her face says Cleveland, her clothes say Swaziland how do we solve this visual problem? Is it a problem? Are we glad we cannot see her breasts?

Posted by inkweary | September 16, 2008 3:42 PM

I like the nipples to be straight out or higher. Droopy like that leaves me droopy.

I'm so putting that quote on my resume. Thanks Charles.

Posted by Steven Miller | September 16, 2008 3:47 PM

Translated from the Mudede language, e.g., eliminating the pseudo intellectual horseshit:

Hey Sloggers here's a good pic of a chick with great boobs. She's a Swazi princess—
that's close to my native country, didja know?
[N.B. to Charles: um, you don't need to identify her as the one in the middle; we know the white chick aint't the Swazi princess!]

The red feathers show she's a princess. It's the reed dance ceremony. She looks like a model but she's in a traditional situation and ceremony. (Kind of like that hot Palin chick, with the family scene and running for VP, you know? Two things at once. Love those intermixed situations.)
Anyway, she's got a pretty face and great tits, that's the kind of intermixing I like, it's so cool when chicks have both.
And she's so nice and relaxed about those tits!

Pass it along to your friends.

God help you if she gets anywhere near a Superbowl...

The only thing National Geographic about those breasts is the lack of photoshopping.

Posted by keshmeshi | September 16, 2008 4:16 PM

Oh, and silicone, of course.

Posted by keshmeshi | September 16, 2008 4:18 PM

Many kittens died to bring you this photo.

Posted by Jesse | September 16, 2008 4:19 PM

I have a suggestion:

That chick's hot, and I totally see her tit.

Now, to be barely more serious, what do you mean by modern face? Maybe a modern hairstyle, modern makeup, but I don't think faces have changed that much with the times.

Posted by Jim | September 16, 2008 4:32 PM

you answered your own question: her face & her breasts are (everything/nothing).

now post some hairy/shaved pussy photos!

Posted by max solomon | September 16, 2008 5:09 PM


are you twelve? They're boobies. Please get over it.

p.s. Please don't post some hairy/shaved pussy photos. This site already pushes the SFW envelope enough as it is.

@7: you do it your way, I'll do it mine.

Posted by Fnarf | September 16, 2008 5:40 PM

yo i seriously feel sorry for you if this is the thought process you have when you see boobs

Posted by brian | September 16, 2008 6:17 PM

I think Charles is the modern Boob.


Posted by I'm Black! Really! | September 16, 2008 7:02 PM

We ask her.

Posted by Mrs. Jarvie | September 16, 2008 7:09 PM

@22, you're the one lowering the discussion to a kindergarten level. This is actually a really interesting portrait, a clash of modern, nationless, globalized culture (western makeup; Michelle Obama hair; where the hell'd that white chick come from?) with an exposed breast, a sight that breaks with the expectations conjured by the former attributes.

That said, I wonder if she only lets the mamms out to breath during, erm, reed dance ceremonies.

Posted by rococo | September 16, 2008 9:35 PM

Reminds me of National Geographic a little, too. Man, when I was 12...

Posted by Greg | September 16, 2008 9:54 PM

"How does one resolve this visual complex?" With my penis in my hand

Posted by Andy | September 16, 2008 11:15 PM

she has very normal looking breats.

charles it's not surprising that you find it difficult to comprehend that when some women remove their bras, their breasts sag. nipple shapes tend to vary as well. imagine that!

however, i wouldn’t expect you to fully grasp this concept since most of your experience with women comes from jacking off to pictures online. if you're feeling particularly philanthropic, maybe you can help improve her life and sending her a plastic surgery care package.
