It seems that the latest thing among Chinese couples getting married is nude wedding photos:

The photos are only for the couples' own use, and are in addition to the official wedding photo set. But it is part of a growing trend of openness towards nudity and sexuality in China that's going on in part because of exposure to new ideas through the Internet, and phone instant messaging.

Apparently nude (webcam) chat rooms are getting popular too.

All this is happening completely "under the Radar" of China's government, which has the world's largest and most efficient Internet censors.

A similar thing is happening in Iran, where the younger people often hang out in mixed-sex company at each other's houses, completely topless (heads, that is) - dressed only in T-shirts and pants. They even listen to dance music.

I'm certain that this is going on everywhere, especially in among the teenagers in the U.S who have grown up with the Internet, mobile messaging, and other communications technology around them like a fish in water. There is a worldwide wave of completely informed, knowlegable, and sexually liberated (by comparison) children who will be taking over the world in a decade or two.

The rest of the generations won't know what hit them.

Taking Nude photos of your wife soon after one marries can be a life saver. In our case it did contribute to my wife getting treatment early. She had a mamogram several years ago after finding a lump. Because she was young and the mamogram said there was no sign of cancer the doctor let the lump go thinking it was just a cyst. I had heard that if the nipple changes it could be a sign of cancer. I wasn't sure if her nipple had always been pulled in like it was so I simply looked at some topless polaroid pictures I had taken of my wife soon after we were married. I saw the nipple had changed since they were taken and my wife went back to the doctor and they took out the lump and discovered it was cancer. So it does help to have a visual record.

Yes, its a pity we have such hangs up about nudity because nude photos are a great way to document physical conditions which change gradually so we don't notice them day to day- but a annual nude photo can tell you a lot- like was that mole there last year (melanoma?). I think it use to be pretty common for families to document the growth and development of their children year to year. Now most would be afraid to do this for fear they would be arrested for making "kiddy-porn". Sad how society is digressing.

Dispite what the media and society would like people to beleive many families still do take nude pictures of their children. The ones that do this are usually just more careful about what they do with them and who they show them to. Stuff like this can still be done people just have to be a bit more creative. I do think alot of the stories out there about people getting arresting for having nude pictures of their children and having it claimed to be kiddy porn are really largely exaggerated and I dont think it happens all that much and when it does people tend to get off easy. Most courts can tell the difference between an innocent family photo and child porn and if they cant then those people really should find a new line of work.

These laws were written back in the 1980s when there was a big child-molestation hysteria sweeping the country and there were over-zealous interruptions and enforcement because it was a politically popular thing at the time. Photo-lab employees at drugs stores and such were instructed to report any photos they saw containing nudity and there were some pretty silly prosecutions. Fortunately prosecutors do a better job now distinguishing between innocent nudity and porn. Also most people these days use digital cameras rather than film so photo labs never see their photos.
