Breast Implants = Slut In Romance?

It seems to me that along with evil villains being gay in romance books, (I’m looking at you Anne Stuart) women with implants are often portrayed as the slutty other woman. Why?

The message seems to be that having a boob job makes one a Slutty McSlut, and I have to say, it irritates me no end.

This obviously doesn’t count if you only read historicals, seeing as there probably weren’t too many heroines with silicone implants floating round prior to the 1960s.

I’m guessing that the romance heroine who decides to have breast implants out of vanity hasn’t been written yet?

Chicklit really doesn’t count.
