Imagine This In The U.S.

Let's say you owned a fancy art museum or even just ran one for a high profile foundation. Now, let's just suppose for an instant that you granted free admission to anyone who came naked. How would that go over in the United States? Like a fart in a crowd? That's what happened at the prestigious Leopold Museum in Vienna. (Just click to read the whole article.

"We find a naked body every bit as beautiful as a clothed one," said
Elisabeth Leopold, who founded the museum with her husband, Rudolf. "If they
came only out of lust, we have to accept that. We stand for the truth."

I don't know about Vienna, but here in the U.S. there would be a ton of people there out of lust. Maybe we're a little short on sophistication.

Just a thought.

Finally an article I can truly relate to! I don't think Americans are lacking in sophistication any more than any other country. What we have in spades, however, is a generally unhealthy fear and repression of all things having to do with nudity and sexuality.
