I have no problem with either of the avatars--with or without the fig leaves. :)
I agree with Frank. I see no reason to modify this avatar.

Well not so much need, but when tastefully done, nude photographs amongst the in avatars and more so in galleries, (IMHO) tend to "normalize" nudity. When the images are appropriate and deliberately very un-suggestive of sexuality they can be a great asset to presenting our life view. They can also be of benefit to helping to break the link between sex and nudity and even an aid to the breaking the link between nakedness and porn. However all that becomes a moot point if it is a problem for the folks who own the hardware that hosts this board.

Yeah, me too.

Well if you have some need for anonymity because of intolerant textiles, maybe that is not a good idea, but sometimes people come up with avatars that say something about their personality, or carry some additional message. I started a thread in another forum directly asking users to explain why they chose the avatar that they did. It got some interesting responses.

I was wondering about this whilst I was trying to decide what to use as an avatar. Just to clarify, though, nudity is acceptable as long as genitalia isn't exposed? It doesn't really matter that much but I am more curious now than when I dismissed it as "probably not allowed"
