Hello Debra,

Thanks for your explanation. Can you clarify it abit.

If a museum, such as the LA Contempory, placed some of Robert
Mapplethorpe's wonderful homoerotic, sadomasocistic and
perverse photographs online how would you treat them?

What about a museum of erotic art, would that make a difference
to you? How do you judge art museums?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Best wishes,
