Terry Hill, PhDs insight:

Again, women being told their bodies are not their own. And of course reflects the traditional bias that the human body is naturally immoral and disgusting. Finally, what possible harm to humanity comes from this?

Record numbers of the nation’s men are turning to manscaping, which involves shaving, plucking and even the ‘boyzilian’ – the male version of the painful Brazilian wax.

Why DO men do this?
It is of course, culturally relative.
But can you picture a man and a woman who at the age of 70, had never cut or shaved head, facial or body hair? What would they look like?

Tastefully done, or as a natural scene not involving sexual activity for profit,  it should be allowed. Like anything else, the more often you see it the less it's impact and the more 'normal' it becomes.  We can watch public beheadings but not a perso'n's natural state. Very disturbing.

Strange but there seems to be a purpose to it. Perversion? Or breaking new ground?

Mario Pires's curator insight, February 16, 2015 6:26 AM

"The nude figure, though perhaps one of the most familiar to us, carries with it layers of personal and cultural associations, eliciting complex, contradictory, and sometimes liberating emotions. Some of the most powerful sessions have occurred with people who have sought him out as a means of overcoming fears or healing from domestic violence or sexual abuse. In plunging with us into this vulnerable state, Christensen robs nudity of its authority, reminding us that underneath it all, we’re all exposed."
