<snip>And I'm sure Playboy tapped into the sublime by using beauty of the women in most fantastic poses without any "porn". And so does the swimsuit competition everywhere such as Sports Illustrated.
Yes, and Playboy had a view of women as beautiful.
Again, compare the cult POLICY towards SEX with these illustrations they had made to portray scenes from books. Consistent?
If somebody wants hard core porn or soft porn that is their choice & none of my business; however, when the cult had it's form POLICY towards sex, sexual behavior as pretty much bad things to then peddle illustrations with bare chested women ?
Or describe various sexual encounters in the books ? Why not at least call it what it is, soft porn ( at best ) !
Karen had it right, period.
