    Teen agers and children are very interested and curious about anything sexual. They have a sexuality and a curiosity. The idea that children must be "protected" from sex-related material is crap invented by the censor-happy ones. They don't want nudes, or porn, or whatever, and in order to prevent the circulation of this kind of material they use the "protection of children" as an excuse.

    Find me ONE teen-ager who wants to be protected from Playboy, or Penthouse, or Hustler. Children don't have a problem with sex. Parents have.

    Erotic or Pornographic?

    What does cat juggling have to do with anything? Do you consider that pornographic? LOL

    With the possible exception of the "deleted" thread.

    And maybe some of the philosophical discussions about the existence of "magenta".

    Well, some of the A vs. D discussions might turn them into grumpy old codgers before their time!

    Come to think of it, I don't think even the deleted thread or the magenta thread would harm them. I mean, I have the mentality of a teenager, and they didn't harm me...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

Most parents dont have the IT skills to effectively manage the internet, its a different time than finding a playboy magazine in the bushes.
    Somewhat OT but related: While I don't agree with your statement, I do have an issue here... but it's definitely not with nudes in the APUG gallery. My issue is with my HOME ISP that is blocking websites. They're CENSORING what sites I can visit. I complain but they never reply to me. They know they are the single viable high-speed option anyone in this rural area has so they force their puritanical censorship on us all. It's either that or they're trying to save bandwidth. Either way, they're controlling and cheated their customers. So one day my ISP may ban APUG as a site that hosts nude photos. But I'd NEVER support their attempts at censorship. Okay... now I've worked myself up and am steaming angry at my ISP.

    I aspire to have the mentality of a teenager again. My teen age son won't share his... and I seem to have lost mine over the years.

    Everyone keeps talking about the "deleted" and "magenta" thread...

    Can someone let me in on the joke? E feel like magenta is a reference to ortho vs pan film?

    Can't. The "deleted" thread is, ummmm.... gone.

    It was great when it existed, but even that was a bit of an illusion.
