SEX and SENSUALITY! That grabbed your attention, right?

I try to not sweat the small stuff. If I flunk a quiz, I resolve to study harder for the next one. If the wait for food is long, I never fume at the workers. Nonetheless, some of the decisions that I weigh heavily others might regard as trivial. Take my desktop background as an example. Over the last week, I agonized over whether or not Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus” would offend anyone sitting behind me. After all, Venus stands sans clothes, clearly portrayed as an attractive goddess of love and beauty. I certainly would harshly consider someone sitting in front of me revealed a desktop of a shirtless Talylor Lauten. On that note, I started wondering where that fine line between the artistic value of the human form and cheap desire lies.
