exactly sure,it is a fucking loli!
I've asked myself this question quite often, but don't find a definitive answer: what's with the plasters? ...i've seen them a lot (especially in loli..mm...) to cover the "intimate parts". I wonder if they have a specific meaning or what. Are they supposed to portrait this "vulnerability" and "frailty", or are there because the artist doesn't want to bother drawing them? (or subtle censorship?!)

tl;dr, they make lolis hotter (* ̄▽ ̄*)
It is probably quite hurting to see someone apply pixelation, blur or bar censoring to your work, so they avoid it by removing the need without creating faults.

Artists love ruining perfectly good images ;_;

Seriously, it's to avoid the mosaics. I'd take the mosaics any day though.

They make pics into legally safe and can be sold at the all aged section on the store (⌒▽⌒)ノ_彡☆バンバン!

I think it originally started as an irony against that stupid japanese censorship (mosaic = R-18, non mosaic = all aged, or die), now became a fetish.

lol! now i know why the weirdest (but coolest!) stuff starts in japan. Well it's definitely a nice fetish (although that must hurt when pealed off >.<)
Covering her nipples (not fully) is hotter than just seeing all her nipples, to me at least, a tease kinda? idk.

Yeah, its a change from the full frontal nudity, makes you imagine .
I thought censorship in Japan was a custom, not a law.

And once again, smart moves from Japanese people.

It's a rule of retailers and all other commercial systems. but not written on the national law.
Even if it's shrink-wrapped against accidental "under 18" viewing?
Japan as a society has a very high moral standard and places honor above almost everything else. In this sort of society, it would make perfect sense that "self-policing" would work. It seems that creativity is still allowed to flourish, nonetheless.
For your education: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Censorship_in_Japan

tl;dr: There is a law that can be understood as such: "Due to the current interpretation of Article 175 of the Criminal Code of Japan, which forbids creating and distributing "indecent" materials, it is believed that most pornography in Japan must be at least partially censored. There have, however, been very few arrests for violations of this law."

That doesn't, of course, cover nipples, only genitals. Nipples as such are completely safe and placing plasters on them is totally optional.

That doesn't even make sense. Censorship has nothing to do with morals.

I think you're making a correlation from causation.

I mention this because if censorship is not a law, then why follow it? Also, if it's not a law, it's unenforceable as such. I did not specifically say censorship had anything to do with morals, but that in a Japanese society, it seems an industry CAN "self-police" itself, whatever the reasoning behind it.

Contrast that with the U.S. where we have regulations upon regulations for almost everything.
Self preservation to keep your money in your pocket
Seems to wet her panties?*v*
I think the self-regulation has little or nothing to do with moral levels, the authors are black-barring to stay clear from trouble, not to fulfill their moral standards. Just as Chrissues said, a bit censoring is not that devastating to art and keeps you safe, so why not?
