I’m not talking about the women dancing around topless which was widely reported as the reason why YouTube banned it (although you can see everything on Vevo). Rather, it’s this one image of a woman that has a very tiny stop sign on her bare butt, giving the impression that no doesn’t mean no if you ignore her saying stop.
