    are a bunch of prudes.  how pray tell can viewing a human body corrupt someone?  nakedness is only a big deal because they have socially constructed that it is not acceptable.
    •  well, Americans didn't really construct this one (none)
      The feeling that nudity is immoral is a pretty old construction---British nobility used to go bathing in special rolling bathing rooms so that other people on the beach couldn't see them in their swimsuits!  Europe has just dropped it a lot faster than the US has, although the US isn't the slowest either---a lot of the stuff on US television would be downright scandalous in many parts of the world.  Actually, even in parts of Europe there are still hang-ups about certain things---a soap opera that showed two men kissing was fined in Greece for "indecency" a few months ago.
