Is stripping a form of art?
An interesting case is developing in Iowa. Seems the local sheriff’s niece decided to get naked at an art facility. Problem is she was 17 at the time. So, the director got into a lot of trouble. His defense is that dancing naked in Iowa is not legal. Nevertheless a minor doing it. So, they went to court and he won because he claimed he was exempt because he was an art facility and dancing naked at an art facility in Iowa is OK. Well, it’s going to the higher courts there apparently.
Which begs the question, is stripping naked art?
I don’t think so. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a good strip tease. I really, really, do. But, I don’t generally sit there and compare what the babe is doing to Van Gogh or Rembrandt. I’m thinking something completely different.
Stripping is a form of entertainment. That’s all.
