Oh, I see--anyone who says that the picture is of a "sexually suggestive
pose" is therefore thinking about sex with the girl. You, on the other
hand, were of course above any such suggestion.
Sorry, but this reply is just silly. Whether I say the pose is sexually
suggestive isn't determined by my personal reaction, *of course*. It is
determined by the obviously intended reaction. The fact that it was on a
hard metal Scorpions album, that the record company was intentionally trying
to shock, and that the title of the album was "Virgin Killer"--I don't
suppose that has anything to do with the picture being sexually suggestive.
