Forbidden Images:

A tender touch out of sight of others. Forms silhouetted against gossamer. A knowing glance.

Via Autumn People, this fascinating glimpse into what was once considered out of bounds in polite society.  Such scenes no longer shock but their beauty, misinterpreted in an earlier age as salacious, remains.

Update: Vanderleun’s ace reporting from deep behind the lines of the western front of the culture wars serves as an excellent example of the pendulum of free artistic expression perhaps swinging a bit to far in compensation for the censorship of a previous era. In our “how low can you go?” post modern Limbo culture the answer is invariably “drop the bar another notch”.
