Hi, Kramer

I'm quite surprising to hear from you about the restrictions of discussing
topics about sex in art class, especially in the Western world.
We, in Hong Kong, with a majority of Chinese community, are also forbidden
to talk about these stuff in the class. Even some artworks (have you guys
heard about the case happened here of a nude statue "New Man" ?)
containing certain degree of nudity are not allowed to be exhibited in the
public space. They must be put in the museums! And this cause a strong
opposing voice from the art community as well as the mass media. The art
community emphasize on the freedom of creation and the mass media emphasize
on the bad effect of censorship to them.
