YES....I KNOW you have to buy a ticket....it's just that having it offered as LEGITIMATE entertainment is soooo...well....sooooo Roman Empire like.....I know I sound like a prude....but, I'm just tired of all the focus on SEX and genitals....and believe YOU get what YOU FOCUS on....in life. Society has become pretty F**ked up in some ways, and this, IMHO, only contributes to continuing that decline.

What passes for "art" or "talent" these days is actually embarrassing -- not prude-type embarrassing ... artistic
embarrassing. Maplethorpe is but one example.
Others are movies that attract an audience not because of the brilliant plot or the professional acting, but because of the special effects, or the level of gratuitous violence, or because an actress shows her breasts (or an actor, his butt).
"Art" today relies on the shock value. The funny thing is, if these performers had their way and this became common, this type of activity would be no more interesting than watching a person twisting balloons into various shapes or creating origami.
