    Jovo, I have never encountered porn accidentially when browsing the web.

    Unsupervised web browsing is not an appropriate activity for the children of parents who would find a naked body offensive. The problem is not the internet. Government has no place, and no ability to legislate morals, nor should it. What a crock. I mean, how difficult is it to supervise your children? If you're to much of a dolt to do it, why is it suddenly everyone elses problem? Fundies. It boggles.

    Not so long ago, the URL "whitehouse.com" was a porn site. Kids seeking information on the American presidency commonly made the mistake of using that URL rather than one with .gov or .org. Some, of course, thought that was a great joke and went there knowingly, but others, and usually the more or most innocent among them, went there entirely unaware of what they'd encounter. Such things happen...Janet Jackson's boob brouhaha for instance...and, however ridiculous the hype about it turned out to be, the fact that some people were taken where they didn't want to go without their consent or permission was a mistake that TV network paid a rather large fine to atone for, and I'm sure some heads rolled as well.

    It's easy to ridicule extremes of hypermodesty, but it's the quiet, average family who are not to be discounted by those who's standards are much more liberal and who control the content of media. That's not censorship in my view, but rather the opportunity to choose what to encounter in accordance with one's standard of taste and morality.

    Jovo, I have a twelve-year-old daughter. It is terribly hard to generalize about stuff like this. Different people have different views about nudity. And, obviously, different cultures have different bents.

    My general impression about the US is that we as a culture are whipsawed between prudishness and prurience. I chose to photograph my series of nude portraits to explore that dichotomy. I suspect someone from a country where nudity doesn't sound alarms might find my photos completely uninteresting.

    I agree entirely with all three sentences.

    I disagree with you almost entirely. How kids deal with *most* things has everything to do with the cues they're given by the adults in their lives.

    Which makes me wonder ... do single ladies with garages who fix their own cars have PlayGirl centrefolds on the walls .... ?
    John- I'd say they more than likely have the centerfold from "On Our Backs" instead Or at least the Binford Tool calendar

    I'm reading this thread with the really nice portrait of Summer by Sanders McNew as the latest gallery photo.

    I find the combination of that photograph and this thread mildly amusing.

    I really don't have anything substantial to add to this discussion.
