Do you seriously think some kid is going to self flagellate to a tintype? And if they did, what of it? As you say in a later post, this isn't the era of finding a playboy in the bushes. Hell, I used to use the JC Penney catalogue. It's as old as time, and genuine human behavior that you cant stop. If my son spends his time hitting the APUG gallery I would be mightily impressed, particularly in light of what is available.

    All the blather of this sort does simply one thing, it screws up children who then grow into screwed up repressed adults with huge hang ups about their bodies and their sexuality.
    There is not enough agreeing in the world to express my agreement here.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    If you leave an unexposed piece of film in a light proof box, but put a lightbulb inside on a timer that will go off randomly over the next 50 years and you leave the box outside in the sun, over the course of 50 years the film can be both exposed or not exposed at the same time and we can't be sure so you have to think of the film as both exposed and unexposed in the same instance. So it's a paradox. Sure you can add, is the film exposed as magenta or yellow or brown if you want, by saying there are 2 lightbulbs that are coated in red/yellow and you don't know which one has gone off if any or both so the film can be thought of as both unexposed/exposed/red/yellow/brown all at once

    I think I just blew my own mind! My paradox is even better than Schr÷dinger's Cat!

    What powers the lightbulb? And why leave it in the sun if it's in a lightproof box?

    A battery? And the sun adds a heat and radiation factor to the film's life expectancy.

    It was a hypothetical it's not meant to be seriously analyzed, it was a bad "smart" mans joke...

    What kind of battery keeps 50 years?

    Oops. Sorry. (I can't help it, it's brain chemicals.)

    If we can be honest about ourselves for just a moment.... How many of you NOT seen an image of naked human in pre-puberty years? (and not think much of them until our parents started freaking out?) How many of us NOT actively seek for images of naked human in adolescent years and enjoy them when one was found? OK.... Now, how many of us not remember seeing private parts in about the same time frame? And.... we all grew up as a normal and productive citizen?

    Who among us think today's children (if you have a family, your children) have not seen naked bodies already and few dozen times already at least?

    So.... who's protecting whom from what? I think we are making way too big deal about something that is so abundant and quite possibly a very normal human behavior and development process.

    I'm quite in agreement with Stephanie agreeing with JBRUNNER. Way too much pretending going on, me thinks? Do any of us honestly think any of the images on APUG will actually harm ANYONE?

    No, but I've seen some HDR over on photo.nut that will leave you scarred for life!
    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.
