An Australian bar is being criticised for using naked women as fruit platters at a launch party in Sydney Wednesday night. Women wearing only skin-coloured underpants and with their bodies adorned in a variety of fruit became the centrepiece on tables at the relaunch party at Cruise Bar in Darling Harbour. Photographs of the naked figures quickly drew ire from social media commentators. See also: Facebook won't promote a feminist event because of its 'profane' language.
But this request, while still a meme, is no longer rhetorical. Millions of men and women around the world are sending nudes and without a shred of irony. The unstoppable rise of messaging and dating apps, lightning-fast wireless internet, and high-definition front- and rear-facing cameras on hand at every moment have, for better or worse, made digitizing our naked selves irresistible. Beyond confirming their ubiquity, we wanted to uncover the implications of requesting and receiving nudes. Are they the new normal and harmless fun or an ethical nightmare without an undo button?
