Yeah I think the sexualization comes from treating the human body as something taboo which has always seemed weird to me. Breasts and genitals aren't any different than by other body parts, and history shows us people will sexualize anything if the culture makes a taboo of it (uncovered ankles, back of the neck, whatever).

But it's hard to change.

I'm going to a traditional hot spring with friends for my birthday in February and we are all going to get a bit more familiar with one another due to it. No bathing suits allowed. I'm sure there will be some giggling and nerves but soon feel normal.
