Shimane ,Japan ;
A replica of Michelangelo’s Renaissance sculpture David that was put up last summer is unnerving residents of a Japanese town, with some calling for the naked masterpiece to be given underpants.

Good one Simbi.

I find it somewhat bizarre that an internationaly recognized historical, replica sculpture , is suggested in Japan to be modified to hide the "private parts"

This is appreciative ART, not porno.

This - coming from a country that has a penis/fertility festival.  I would post a link but the mods would probably block it.
Just Google "Japan Penis Festival".

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

For some unknown reason Bukakke comes to mind after reading this story.

That particular David is uncircumcised and markedly under-endowed considering the Italian models Michelangelo would have used.  Odd for the king of Judea.

I recall being, not shocked exactly but surprised, at seeing a billboard in Amsterdam of a frontally nude man and woman, several times life-size.

The Japanese bathe in public baths nude anyway and I never noticed any embarrassment.
