  • Sex OK, But Nudity Isn't?

    I noticed that people have no problem with sex and sexism, but there seems to be problem with nudity.

    - Websites seem have no nudity in their Terms Of Use (or whatever you call it), but mention nothing about sexual content, only some sites do. When I report stuff that contains sexual stuff, sites never do anything about it, but if nudity gets reported, they deleted it. What the heck??? It should be the otherway around.

    1a. I reported a few groups that I came across on The Facebook, that were clearly sexual, innopropriate and against Facebooks, terms of use. One even had a picture of just nudity, not sexual/lustful at all. Facebook had removed the photo, but left the group.

    While I came across some of these groups, I have found some apps and some profile picture that clearly contained sexual content (like intercourse) and graphic. Facebook didn't do anything about that when I reported it.

    1b. A friend of mine, who is a naturist, posted some clothesfree photos on Facebook about five years ago. Soon after, her Facebook get "suspended" aka she got permanently banned. I don't think Facebook and Yahoo! knows the meaning of suspended, their definition of suspended means permanently.

    1c. On MySpace a couple years, my friend reported a photo on some random persons profile where it a close-up of his erection, that was all that as in the photo. MySpace wrote back and said, it the photos was not removed because it dosen't violate their guidelines. I've read their guidelines, it says both nudity and sexual content not allowed.

    2. TV shows now are pretty graphic with sexual content. If you watch the show Dexter, you'll see at least a few scenes that are pretty graphic (one was almost a graphic as p**nography). But nudity, they are have no problem censoring nudity when there is no shagging. Like one scene, showed a nude dead girl, and they censored the breast, vagina, except for her bum.

    I can't find any reason for this, why nudity is censored, or removed if it's not sexual. But many things these days just makes no sense. However, I do find it very interesting, that is the way it is.

    Hello LonelyAspie. I agree with you 100% on this subject. I have been saying the exact same thing as you did for years. People seem to be OK with graphic sexual content or photos, but let a photo of non-sexual nudity show up somewhere and they're up in arms about it! I myself also do not understand the philosophy of this either. You have women that have no problem showing themselves off to guys sexually in a very explicit manner which is basically pornographic in nature. Yet, ask that same girl to accompany you to eithera nude beach or a nudist resort or club and chances are she will think you are a pervert. It's kind of backwards thinking to me. I can't explain it any other way for some reason. In short, it just doesn't make sense!

      It's all part of a double standard.

      In a similar vein, TV is so anal (no pun intended) about bleeping-out common four-letter words. Yet, they allow the taking of "the Lord's name in vain."

      In my opinion, four-letter words are just words, and only have the importance that you assign to them.

      But, using the Lord's name in vain could be seriously offensive to some people's value system. Yet, broadcasters are casual in allowing it. If words are offensive, then I would think that taking of the Lord's name in vain is the bigger offense.

        In many instances sex is definitely not okay. There are lots of people get unrealistically uptight whenever the subject of sex becomes part of a scenario, even in instances where it is otherwise none of their business.

        Unfortunately the subject of sex is just as touchy of a subject as nudity and nudism.

        In this confused and uptight day and age of over-political correctness, there is more confusion and corruption in Society in regards to how folks perceive sex and nudity, and unfortunately as we know here, the confused and uptight among folks of this world, there is the ever-unnecesary blending of the two subjects. It's a lethal and caustic blend of confused subjects and unhealthy attitudes about sex AND nudity, that breeds the type of confusion that unfortunately threatens to grow onto and overtake the rest of Society, and education, the proper education that is, is about our only real means of defense and it's about the only means of our being able to hold onto whatever sanity we've managed to hold onto so far.

          I am going to attempt to reply on this even though it is just merely my opinion. On this subject of sex and nudity, I really believe that a lot of people are insecure with themselves when it come to the subject of nudity itself and yet will embrace material with sexual content even though graphically. For example, I made the comment last week on females who sexually exploit themselves either through pornographic websites or even engage in activities such as "pole dancing" or "lap dancing." If what I just mentioned here offended anyone, I am deeply sorry. I am merely trying to make a point in regards to my thoughts on this subject. I in no way at all support this kind of activity since I find it very appalling and distasteful as well as degrading to women. Anyway, the same female who conducts herself this way would possibly be uncomfortable when discussing the subject of innocent nudity or as I also mentioned last week, being invited to a nudist resort,club or beach. As far as the media goes with allowing the four-letter words, it is the same thing. It is a feeling of insecure in one concept and total disregard to another. For instance,taking the Lord's name in vain doesn't seem to phase them yet they won't show complete nudity. Now don't misunderstand me here,I do believe in tv standards in regards to children possibly watching. But if that's the case, why then do they allow the use of certain or any four-letter words during that same time slot? Can you see or understand the point I am trying to make here on this subject? I guess as was mentioned, it is sort of a double standard. But I will always contend that the botton line is the public in general is just not ready to practice or accept the concept of nudity and choose to engage in alternate patterns of behavior instead. It is sort of like putting up a front with themselves to me unless I am wrong. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong or if anyone disagrees.
