Hate to say it, but much of nude photography's appeal to the masses comes from the T&A factor and little more.

    Certainly not a prude, but realistic,

    PS... I will correct myself and say the nude female as I just looked at the stats of FC's nude males when compared to a Sanders McNew full frontal. I will also add that the controversy factor is key as well after looking at the stats of FC's "Little Richard" photo:

    I am not a prude, either, and I have no disagreement with the idea that nudity draws attention.

    I have yet to see if there will be any extreme reaction to that ad in Boston. Knowing the areas obsession with nudity... a NEGATIVE obsession, I would be more surprised if there was none.

    IMHO, a negative obsession - "Denial" - can, and usually is, more destructive.
    Carpe erratum!!
