My famous Christian Nude post makes the Erotic Library

The blogosphere is a funny place. A tiny post of mine entitled “Christian Nudes?” from back in 2004 has generated daily visitors on my site for 5 years. And today, since it got featured on a “Christianity and Sex Topic” page on the Erotic Library, it has generated a whole new crowd of sightseers to my blog.

The post itself is not very interesting but there were some insightful comments that I guess were interesting reading. Cant remember what they were and I cant remember what the article that I was pointing to said either. Something about why nudes are OK in old Christian paintings but too controversial for photography in the Christian world of the 21st Century.

Nothing to see folks, please move on.

  • Well Cathryn remember that Andrew did post those mankini pictures, though he refused to pose in one. 🙂
    Reading a very interesting book “Travel as a Political Act.” In one chapter Rick Steves discusses the European versus American attitudes towards nudity. Very insightful and spot on. AND it’s why I tell authors who come to the US to market their wares (esp. if geared to the “Christian” (read evangelical) market to be aware of this cultural shifts. Moves that wouldn’t raise an eyebrow in Europe and the UK, would get one blackballed in the world of Americana Christianity. It’s not being prudish – you’ve told me on more than one occasion to tone down my raunchy self – but being practical so one’s message and not one’s manners get the buzz.
