I agree we make too big of a deal about nudity in the States, but
unfortunately, this is the system we're stuck in. Case in point...

In my town in northern Florida, recently a HIGH SCHOOL teacher was reassigned
to a non-instructional position (pending investigation) because on a bus trip
the tape he put in the VCR (some bus, huh?) had a naked butt...off an HBO
movie. It was in fast forward, for heaven's sake, and he took it right out
of the player and even apologized. But, his name has been plastered all over
the paper and the poor guy now has a gigantic blot on his career.

I don't know what we can do to change this.....

Does remind me of an interesting episode in my art training (in the '60's)
when I showed up a little late for figure drawing only to find the model in
an evening gown and the rest of the class nude.
