Prudes vs nudes

Vote for taxpayer-funded nudity on the internet!

This is what it’s all about:

The NHS is asking patients whether a new interactive body map should be correct in every detail - or whether the genitals should be left off.
The state-of-the-art body maps have been developed for the NHS Choices website. The maps, to be launched next month, allow users to strip away the dummies' skin to explore information about diseases and treatments.

I say yes: because sometimes naughty bits get ill too.

It’s mildly dismaying that they feel the need to consult rather than just doing it, but I guess they’re only covering their arses – so to speak – in case the bone-headed prude brigade starts shrieking.

I’m sure that we as a nation are mature enough to accept this. It’s possible, though, that the prudish minority will rush to vote no and the rest of us won’t bother.

You can vote here. (Looking at the censored versions currently on show, I can guarantee there’s really no danger of mistaking them for actual human beings. More like crash test dummies after a session in the gym.)

Congratulations to the NHS for showing some balls, good that someone in public life is giving the hard suffering British public something to laugh about over christmas, and also a damm good body map. Well done. I vote for it.
