225. Actually, I don't score
as prudish on personality tests - maybe because I read erotica and am comfortable with my own nudity when it is appropriate. I once sent my brother a copy of Penthouse Forum along with a bunch of lingerie as a care package ... I sent it to him at his fraternity (gave me quite a reputation there). I've been to many a club (back in my clubbing days) which catered to, shall we say, some more fringe sexual preferences (even including a public spanking). Personally my favorite is going to drag shows which are a blast. The difference is that I knew what I was going to see and knew what to expect. In contrast, I really don't want to go to a live production of the musical Cabaret as part of a subscription to "The Broadways Series at (name of local theater)" and be subjected to simulated sex and fellatio created by the actor's shadows just because the bar keeps getting raised higher and higher regarding how much titillation we should be subjected to. The original Cabaret managed to tell a perfectly realistic story (well, at least for a musical - it was more realistic than most musicals) which included WWII era sex outside of marriage, gay sex, drug and alcohol abuse, and abortion without resorting to displays of simulated sex acts, and the simulated sex acts did not add anything to the production. I'm also fed up with what I call the "mandatory tit shot" which is stuck in a movie just to cater to the adolescents and those with adolescent mentalities because otherwise they won't go see what might otherwise be an good movie (because not having a realistic sex scene with nudity in My Big Fat Greek Wedding really made that movie suck and prevented it from being a success).

If being comfortable hanging around with men in corsets and couples in bondage gear and reading erotica and porn but not wanted to see so much sex in movies and on TV makes me a prude than I will wear that badge proudly and counter that you are a voyeur.
