    I like that.
    I would say the opposite. Humans get more sexually excited about what they do not see than by what they do see. Sexy clothing is sexy because of what they cover up, not what they show.

    Re: Nude

    Second that.

    One of girlfriends insisted we visit a Nudist event in a large Health club. All ages, with swimming pool, hot tubs, volleyball and big Bar with real booze

    Nobody looked that good in the well lit club

    Teenage girls wore clothes. Grandma did not

    Erections strictly banned

    I had to wait awhile in the hottub after my friend got out...

    I miss her...

    Not sure if this is supposed to be funny or just misogynistic?

    I sincerely apologize if anyone was offended by my faux pas in trying to compare the absurdity of the lamp in the image. Sexist--unintentionally so. Chauvinist--again, not consciously. But certainly not misogynistic. I just have a difficult time seeing the purpose or symbolism of the lamp. The lamp will be powered by her strong sexuality? I will most probably get in trouble for that one, too.

    True. But there is nothing really hidden here. It's just the direct view that is blocked.

    Re: Nude

    OK. I'm going to dig this hole deep enough that I can't get out.

    I have thought about the lamp some more, and here are possible explanations:

    1. She is brandishing it to defend herself.
    2. It is a gift, possibly of sentimental value or significance.
    3. Some sort of steam-punk sex toy.
    3a. An erotic fantasy involving an electrician.
    4. There has been an argument, or passionate love-making and the lamp was knocked over. She has picked it up.
    5. She represents a goddess of light or electricity.
    6. Her lover has disappointed her, and she is retreating to a corner of the room to read (or sulk?).
    7. She does not know what to do with her hands. The photographer handed her the lamp.
    8. It's the last sheet of film or the end of the session. The photographer suggests, "Let's do something different."
    9. To paraphrase Freud (or was it Groucho Marx?), sometimes a lamp is just a lamp.

    I'm in big trouble now.

    So far, 20 comments on one photograph. Hasn’t this gone a bit off the rails?
