So Benign it Hurts

Abercrombie Pic

An Abercrombie & Fitch store manager in Lynnhaven Mall, Virginia Beach, Virg., was cited on obscenity charges for lewd and lascivious images such as the above photograph of extremely hot dudes (and one butt crack), the Virginian-Pilot reported.

Police responded on the scene to complaints about promo pics hanging in the store on Saturday. Two large images (one pasted above) were removed. A police spokesman said store management ignored orders to remove the photographs.

City Code Section 22.31 makes it a crime to display "obscene materials in a business that is open to juveniles."

The other image is of a woman who is topless and whose "breast is displayed with her hand covering just the nipple portion," Bernstein said. "You could still pretty much see the rest of the breast."

Funny. In a world of Britney crotch-shots, Victoria's Secret marketing lingerie to 'tweens, Girls Gone Wild, and enough war photography and violence in movies to make anyone's stomach turn, we still get all bent out of shape over hot men.
