Artistic Photos With Gay Bathhouse Images Shut Down

I often link the The Bathhouse blog because whoever is writing this blog seems to pick up interesting news and information all the time. A lot of this info is related to bathhouses, but not always. Sometimes it's political, sometimes social, and sometimes it deals with the arts. I can say this: I'm never bored with anything I read there, and whatever I do read there is smart, well executed, and teaches me something I didn't already know.

Recently, an art exhibit was censored in India because it allegedly had images of men in bathhouses. You can read more about it here. There are other links on the post where you can see the actual images that were censored. I don't think there is one with full frontal nudity. But I could be wrong about that.

And, for fun, you might want to check out this post about Bathhouse Bait. I've posted about gay bathhouses before more than once. I've written scenes with gay bathhouses in a few of my novels. It's a large part of gay culture and always has been. To ignore it, even in romance, would be selling gay men short, if not insulting to them.
