Bruce's comment is interesting...that you don't want to see other penises. It makes me wonder why that's even a consideration in our culture. It's not as if you say "I just don't want to see any more elbows today!" We're so obsessed with covering ourselves.....is it an extension of the idea of privacy and private rights we idealize in our society? Do we become more protective of our so called "private areas" as our presence on the global stage becomes more aggressive, amid warnings from our governments that our rights, our freedom, our very selves are at risk? Does the vulnerability of our national selves reflect our intolerance for any obvious vulnerability demostrated by our physical selves? I wonder, did "prudishness" increase or diminish during other historic times of global conflict (ha ha, I say as if the world were ever at peace
Or, is this the result of an ongoing labelling and outcrying of nudity as being inherently sexual? Think about it....go to Africa, take your shirt off and see who cares about your breasts. Nobody. Now, go try it in the Mall of America. The breasts themselves remain the same, but the perception of them changes dramatically. And, for the record, I believe that this point of view is directly reflected by the number of 8 year olds dressing "sexy" in north america, which is not a trend as far as I know in countries where nudity is not automatically sexualized.
lol hmm how to say(in a pg-13 area), I dont find anything good looking about a penis? i mean i am not going to stand in a mirror and talk to my penis and tell it that its good looking or noble or strong or anthing like that.
it is what it is, and just kidna hangs around waiting to be useful. SO i really dont see a need try and make something that looks like it.,* call it tower envy if you will lol
as for being protective, always, it kinds hurts when you get smacked in that area. Don get me wrong, sure you need to protect it, but there is no need to check down there every few min how your walking down the street like you see some people doing... Granted there are time when you sit, that a couple of things, kinda slip and you end up sitting on them, which is not a good thing, then it is a good idea to reach and just move them over some, but i would jsut call that smart not really being protective.
I will agree that nudity in of itself is not sexual but it does depneds on where you pick to take of your top. if you do in middle of africa sure no issues, but if you would do the same in lets say egypt, then i think there would be trouble.
i agree what people will often see what they want to see, expcet where there is not doubt as to what they(the people who did the desgin) are trying to say.
