As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There is a great, very funny blog called Olga, The Traveling Bra and Olga along with her friend, Claire, have come up with a great idea for raising breast cancer awareness. It’s called Smooshing Your Boobies.

Sounds kinky? Sounds like fun? Well, I enjoyed it in a mud wrestling meets conceptual art sort of way.

It’s a bit like finger painting without the fingers.

Here’s what you do –


1. Tape a piece of paper to the wall, at boobie height
(on the floor works too)

2. Choose your color(s) of paint

3. Apply paint to bare boobies with a soft brush, fingers, sponge, or whatever

4. Smoosh your boobies onto the paper (you might want to experiment a little with holding them together and/or guiding them into place)

5. Repeat as necessary until desired effect is achieved

6. Shower

7. Take a picture or scan your smooshed-boobies print(s)

8. And email it to Claire or Olga no later than Thursday, October 30th (Include your name/blog’s url if you want a link back)

We will post them all here on Smoosh Your Boobies! on Halloween, October 31st…feel free to post your Smooshed Boobies-Print on your blog too!

Prizes will be awarded for best Smooshed Boobies-Print, most original, most life-like, best use of color, etc!

So why not give it a go?

Meleah Rebeccah has and it was actually she who inspired me to do the same. Good on you, Meleah!!!!

So here they are, the objects of my smooshing…..

Slice of pizza, anyone?

What it says about me that I only had a tube of Brilliant Red paint and that I immediately thought of going all glam and Mardi Gras and adding the stars, I’ll leave up to you to decide. But if I can raise Breast Cancer Awareness for just one person then getting that paint in unmentionable places is entirely worth it.


  1. SELMA!!


    Thank you for helping to spread the word and get in on the action.

    PS:Don’t forget to email your photo to OLGA with the url / link to your blog.



  2. Hi Selma,
    I’m definitely out of my league on this one but I can confirm one thing. I am sooooooooo glad that I brought beef lasagne to work today for lunch………………….not PIZZA!!

    This is a wonderful cause, my daughter lost one of her Godparents (Vicki) to cancer at age 40. Vicki originally had a breast removed at age 26 but unfortunately they didn’t get it all and it ended up in her hip. Very sad but, my gosh, what a fighter she was. I remember a couple of days before we lost her she was lying on the sofa (very emaciated at this stage) and as we were leaving she put her hand out, held mine and simply said, “take care”.
    A fantastic example to her children and mine.

    Awareness is King (Queen?) in this case, prevention is so important………keep Smooshing!! πŸ™‚


  3. I just got my reminder card in the mail to go get my boobies smooshed for my yearly exam. It isn’t fun, but it’s better than missing something.

    I smoosh for my great-aunt, and a former co-worker, along with a few others.


  4. I just had a vision of someone saying ‘Smooshing your boobies’ in a Scottish accent, and, for some reason, spent the last five minutes laughing!

    But, way to go! At least, it’s more creative than just putting them on the photo-copier!


  5. TRAVELRAT – hahaha. Good one. I would love to be able to draw patterns in the snow. LOL.

    MELEAH – it was great fun, wasn’t it? Now I can say that I smooshed on the internet. YAY!

    DEOLA – I agree completely. LOL. So nice of you to drop by!

    OLGA – it’s you who should be thanked. I enjoyed this so much. What a brilliant idea!

    CHRIS – I am so sorry to hear about Vicki. It is always so hard to lose someone, especially so young.

    I am glad you opted for lasagne too. In this case, the much safer option πŸ˜‰

    LINDA – I am so sorry about your aunt and your friends. It seems that just about everyone I know has been touched by this disease. Makes you realise how important those exams are.

    KAREN – good on you. I tend to dedicate my smooshing too. I know the friends I have lost will be looking down on me, ready to kick my butt if I fail to smoosh. So I always say “See, I’m doing it!” before an exam.

    TRAVELRAT – now you’ve got me going. That is hilarious. ‘Smoosh yer wee boobies, lassie!’

    PUNATIK – I know it is slightly awkward for the males out there but it is an important issue. I always like to help where I can.


  6. What a great idea! Can I just paint two enormous circles on the page as my offering in the smooshy sense may be a little inadequate πŸ™‚

    Well done Selma and good for you for bringing this to everyone’s attention. My auntie is a breast cancer survivor but while it was happening it was a very scary time.


  7. GYPSY – absolutely. Go for it, my dear. I am so glad your auntie survived. I know how scary it is when someone you love is going through it. The fear just clutches at your heart. I hope that one day we can successfully wipe out this horrible disease.
