Today, linked from the sports section of, is a presentation in Sports Illustrated's swimsuit section of bodypainted swimsuits. Which is to say, they're not actually wearing anything. Now, I don't personally have a problem with that, and as a trompe l'oeil it's absolutely top quality. It says on the page that each paintjob took 13 hours, and I can believe it.

It just sets off my ridiculous-meter that nudity is bad and SI would never print photos of naked women — that's PORN! — but somehow this is OK. As the CNN link says, "Models wear nothing but paint". If the forbidden thing about nudity is that certain areas are uncovered, how does it become OK if they're a different color?
