In terms of final product I get the point of the article. But for me figure drawing class was entirely non sexual. Certain not very bright people can't understand that but it's necessary to understanding anatomy.

I just dealt with a holy shitstorm involving a serial sexual predator who was working as an artistic photographer of naked ladies. So my class is a lot different than a private figure model and a male artist. My comment is maybe not entirely relevant as a result but I just wanted to explain my experience with nude women walking around a government funded building

Figure drawing was one of the most valuable parts of my art education. It was not a sexual experience for me.

Of course, anyone should paint anything, and we should be able to make of it what we will. That's a pretty big part of the whole thing. I'm not much into art that challenges, but I'll support it endlessly.
