I am getting confused on various fronts. One is why do some women want to post nude (or as close as they can come) pictures of themselves on here. Is it just an exhibition thing? Second is: what is actually allowed on here? It used to be that a bare butt, or almost bare butt, would not be okay. Then I guess with all the bikinis basically being a strip of cloth that disappears up the butt crack, and bikinis being okay on here, the pictures of butts with thongs was okay, and then I would see pictures totally nude from the rear (no thong even) and they would stay up. Pictures with any significant amount of the breast showing would get removed, then pictures where the girl holds her fingers over her nipples have been staying up. A question that has been up for two days now has a bare breasted woman in full frontal shot with her nipples and aerolas blacked out. Mods have reported her to admin and her question (and picture) stay up. Is that okay now?
Also wondering what the mods authority in this is. And I am currently posing that quesion with one mod and trying to understand, because the authority they have seems to change.
Actually, I would not care if they opened up the gates and allowed nudes on here. Nudity has never bothered me and if people want to post themselves to the world, let them. The problem I have is that supposedly it is not allowed on here and I am one for following the rules that site owners set. And surely there are enough guys on here showing that they would love to receive nude pictures so that the gals that want to show off their bodies should just PM those guys and give them links to their pictures. Seems that would make all happy.
But I am looking for your thoughts on this. So many women and a few men have seemed bothered by the (almost) nudity, and yet even many women seem quite at ease with it and are answering with encouraging words. So what are your thoughts on these pictures being up on here?

1) I don't know why people want to pose naked or as close as they're allowed, but I sincerely wish they would stop since it's rude.
2) Mods flag or hide posts and then admins review them.
3) When someone posts nude or nearly nude pics the're examined as explicit. In the posting guidelines http://www.girlsaskguys.com/faq/posts Explicit is defined as
"Explicit – The post contains sexually explicit details (text, images, or videos) that are considered poor quality content. Also, explicit sexual responses to non-sexual Questions are also removed as Explicit.
- For example: ALL posts about incest and/or bestiality will be removed as Explicit"
Clear as mud right? Let's look at what additional clarification the mods get:
1) Explicit sexual opinions on non-sexual questions
2) Posts promoting incest or bestiality
3) Links to clips of pornographic scenes/videos
4) Posts that include images in which genitals (both male and female) and female's nipples are visible. Exceptions to this rule would include if it's an art piece such as mainstream movie clips, movie stills, paintings, sculptures, etc. as those would all be allowed.
Please refer to the website (item 2) to see the definition of "sexually explicit material.""Sexually explicit material" apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=9.68.130
I'm also really frustrated with the state of things regarding this topic lately but I think it's really good that we can talk about about it and maybe get some more solid or strict rules about nudity on the site since it seems to be spiraling further out of control. But then again I have loooooooots of opinions on the How Do I Look topic in general. Either way I think this is a good question for @GirlsAskGuys to see4

The last time I saw a selfie with a nipple partly showing, I was debating if I should remove it or not, but by the time I figured I should, another Super+ mod had already handled it.
Otherwise, if the areola isn't showing, and if genitals and buttholes aren't showing, I don't think I truly have the authority to remove it, even if it's really dancing along the borderline of "explicit" or "adult content".
Technically it's difficult to argue against these images if, for example, this is an accepted advertisment for clothing:
This is just the world we live in... But I share your views, I'm pretty sure not everyone is looking to see people in "clothing" that isn't technically clothing (like this one).
It just doesn't feel right to mark it as "explicit" because the world seems to be okay with it, you know? Pictures of genitals are immediately hidden, though. It's just these "kinda naked but not really because it's still PG-12" stuff that's a difficult thing to moderate.0
