Anyone who has been to any art museum, especially those featuring traditional works, will know that they contain rampant full frontal nudity. This is a problem for the media in the US when they have to report on record-breaking auction sales of art works like Modigliani’s Reclining Nude because they have to deal with readers and viewers who are offended by the sight of naked humans even in paintings and sculptures. Should they show the work as is or cover up the naughty bits?
Stephen Colbert has fun with the rules that TV networks in the US impose to prevent children’s minds being destroyed by exposure to the human body in art. I knew that there were rules but I was not aware that they were so absurd.
