Glen, as you have done the nasty scanning work already, do you mind emailing me the ad?
Unphotoshopped of course!

Yes, I know. I was being a tad sarcastic.

Cheers,

So, where do you draw the line? I'm with the moderators. There's no shortage of nekkid wimmin on my computer, so I don't need any on an audio forum.

I only posted the HiFi advert because I thought it was harmless and funny, not for the benefit of porn collectors.

Cheers,
Glen

Two pair, to be exact . But since they were mirror images, maybe they only count as one pair.

Perhaps for an uptight, puritanical, fundamentalist religious "public," but that's not a public I believe should be acquiesced to.

I mean come on, it's just plain silly. Women wearing skimpy bikinis can be found not only on broadcast television on a routine basis, but in the actual "public" as well, leaving virtually nothing left to the imagination as to female anatomy.

But if a goddamn NIPPLE should happen to peek out, OH MY GOD! QUICK! COVER THE CHILDREN'S EYES!

Oh dear. I notice the nanny filter here allows the word "nipple." Some innocent child might read it and start wondering what a nipple is. This could lead to their parents being asked some very awkward questions.

Really, it's beyond silly.

Maybe the (intact) post w/pics could be moved to the "sin bin" for those of us who aren't easily offended?
Really. Once the pic was removed, they might just as well have removed the post too for all the good it is without the pic.

In Audiophile terms - One pair with palpable presence.

OK; one pair from two perspectives

Yeah. Somehow it's ok to show bare breasts as long as they belong to African natives, or dramatic depictions of African natives (i.e. the miniseries Roots). It's also ok to show African wildlife humping like there's no tomorrow.

But show the bare breasts of a non-African native and well... like I said, it's beyond silly. But you can't reason with the irrational.

Yeah, that’s the double standard I had in mind.
There’s a rather disgusting foundation of racism through it too, IMO. Most fixations with nudity stem from religious taboos on sex – and female sexuality in particular. But with regards to her sexuality, the native woman is considered less human (or more of an animal), so therefore inoffensive unclad.

Cheers,
Glen
