a concern and a review


I like nude art.  However in the last few months I have noticed that there seems to be an aversion/ censorship of nude figures on most social media platforms. Even Playboy has indicated they will not have nudes on their pages.

What are your feelings on public nudity and its display on social and print media?

I just finished reading Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein or Modern day Prometheus. Victor’s desire for knowledge leads him to create a being who in his on eyes is monstrous.

When this being kills the William, Victor’s brother, he swears to kill it and a discussion ensues between them. The being tells Victor that in as much as it has done wrong, he has no right to kill him. On the contrary he makes Victor see that he has a responsibility to him. It is to Victor to make him happy, wretched as he maybe.

The question we must ask here is if the creator of a sentient thing has a right to destroy it?
