The Ancient Greeks loved to run around in the nude all the time. And you know how art imitates life?

It’s rumoured that the renaissance sculptor Michelangelo was a homosexual, which would make sense, since he preferred to use male models over female ones when making his work.

24% of high school teens (aged 14 to 17) have participated in sending or receiving nudes, with 12% of teenage participation caused by peer-pressure.
Gay men are more truthful
