    I'm a Paralegal at a female owned law firm. I'm the only male there among 5 female attorneys.

    My boss comes out to chat with me about an important motion we are under deadline to file. Now this is a very important document, 20 pages long, accompanied by declarations and such, so details are important and need to be discussed.

    Now, it seems to me that women tend to run a bit hotter than men, and they usually have the A/C on to a temperature colder than I would like. I don't know if she is wearing a bra, but her nipples are on full alert, where you could dial a rotary phone with them. We are discussing the case, and it is virtually impossible to not look, but I'm trying and telling myself over and over to not look, while still trying to soak up case details. Meanwhile, my mind is drifting toward sex and what she might look like naked.

    Then second main attorney comes over to conference about it as well, and hers are also at a 10. Now I got 2 sets staring right at me, but I'm doing my best to stay professional. Seriously, what a sight. I have the image of their 4 nipples etched in my mind right now.

    It seems to me that they are either oblivious to it, just don't care, or perhaps feel they don't have to do anything at all. I don't really need to bring it up, it's just very awkward, that's all. I mean, I wear an undershirt under my dress shirts to prevent that.

    They're just nipples, everyone has them. Consider it a job perk. ;)

    Yeah - it is distracting, but totally natural and not a sexual action, so I am afraid you just gotta live with it, and try not to stare.

    It's cool I guess, but sort of unfair. If I get caught drifting, I'd be creepy all of a sudden.

    Turn around, bend over, and show 'em your plumber's crack. Fight fire with fire, my friend.

    It's alright to notice, it's not alright to be noticed noticing. Then it is no longer noticing, it is gawking. Gawking is rude. Don't be that guy. Treat others as you wish to be treated, with respect.

    Technically, they would be respectful if they kept their nipples under wraps.

    Don't look any lower than their chin-keep it professional. It will keep you from grinning during any explanations about paperwork. Good luck with your problem...

    You could always put a small dish on your desk, filled with round BandAids. Then, you can work on your resume'.

    If it makes you that uncomfortable, then yeah. It seems to me you have a scenically pleasant workplace. Is this not a good thing? I mean you have work to do, how much time can you really spend noticing their nipples. Seems like it would be the nice occasional respite. On the other hand, if it upsets your work, you may have to complain. All depends on how you handle it.

    I like it more than it makes me uncomfortable. I'm a man and like to look. Even a small glance can be noticed by them though.
