Nasty things were said. The work was pulled by the poster siting lack of respect to his work and his model. (the model saw APUG discussions, apparently)

THAT was sad..... this pseudo puritanism... if that's a real word. It can hurt children! Well, children today see far more explicit stuff on television.... but we must pretend, we must ban those things because it damages something..... We all know what's under clothing. We all know what everybody does in their respective homes. Yet, we pretend we don't - because it's impure....
I agree, if you saw that thread you also saw a post I believe by Sean? I could be wrong... But it reminded us that APUG is international and that there needed to be some degree of censorship or some countries as a whole might block access to the site as it represented values outside of their legally approved laws.

So there's also that....
