i have read a few UK photography magazines, and was surprised that on many occasions, readers wrote in to protest against showing of nudes in the magazines, thinking it is tasteless and atrocious. some are against erotic art while others are against even fine art nudity. that is sort of interesting and bizarre. i supposed asian photographic magazines are less and thus perhaps with less of these kind of publications, but i think we are actually very much less likely to present with such strong reactions as compared to what i see from the feedbacks i see from the west, whether europe or the states.
out of curiosity, i would like to find out what the our community here (be it local or expatriates) think of it. if you like to identify your nationality or places with which you grew up with (which may influence your cultural background), feel free to do so while commenting.
i'm curious about the demographics and how it may affect the poll, but in order to keep it simple, i only break the options into male and female, and take the definition to be publications of aesthetically taken erotic art photography, without revealing the genitalia, and of which the subject can be either nude, semi-nude or erotic suggestions with both male and female models, with no pervercy, violence and ugly model physique.
