Let me roughly paraphrase Dave Barry: "Men's magazines are full of pictures of nude women. Women's magazines are full of pictures of nude women. This is because the female body is a beautiful work of art, while the male body is hairy, lumpy, and should not be seen by light of day."

If, as many claim, both female and male bodies are creations of god(s), why is it so bad to look upon them? Especially if they look like the woman pictured above? Excellent photo choice, BTW.

Thanks Cryptic. It took me a while to find a picture that I felt was just right.
