Cuz, nudie photos are something girls like to do, and guys like to
take. I've had girls pose for me before. Check out for examples of how many
women like to pose for their boyfriends. Better yet, check the
classical version, the Mona Lisa, next time you're in Paree :)

Yup. The day it was announced last week, in the newsgroup referrenced

> Dr. Laura's radio persona is so sickenly right-wing, family values and moralistic that this just make the photos seem even more hypocritical. You expect this from movie starlets, but not from the woman who wrote the book "Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives". Looks like Dr. Laura messed up her own life by taking those pictures twenty years ago... those who want to take a high moral road should not have skeletons in their closet (and certainly not nude photos that include a "money shot" of her you-know-what).

Why is it hypocritical? She made a mistake. Do you trust a skinny
chef? Do you take sex advice from a celibate priest? (notice, I made
the distinction) What better person to give moral advice (or advice on
stupid things women do) than one who has made a few boo-boos?
