When did cheesecake shots go from tantalizing to graphic?
1953 brought to us the first publication of Playboy, but really, while the pictures were of real naked women(shocking at the time, I'm sure) rather than nearly naked drawn pictures of women...they weren't graphic like those found in today's mags.
I find that I have to stop here and clarify that my question is in no way accusatory. I'm an adult and have been for more years then I'd like to count...I'm also a fan of age appropriate sex. I can see the interest and pleasure of magazines and movies, hell, I've previewed many in my time. Consensual sex in all its forms is fabulous, imho!
My question is more fact finding than right or wrong spouting. I really would like to know when things went from tantalizing to graphic? Was it the 60's when we were so focused on freedoms? The 70's when women grabbed women's rights by the horns and ran with it? Or is it just a build up over time? Have we become desensitized to the art of the tease...

Song of the Day: (Reach Up For The) Sunrise by Duran Duran. Sigh ~ I loved this band as a teenager, heck, I truly thought if I could meet Simon Le Bon, he would fall deeply in love with me...let me again say I was a hormonal teenager at the time. LOL Anyway, they continue to make awesome music...I just downloaded the mp3 for Sunrise and I'm loving it!
