Indianapolis alt-weekly NUVO is getting some complaints for this week’s “Sex Indiana-style” [NSFW image] issue that includes a photo of Mr. Nude America. (Local TV news is all over the story, of course.) “I looked at the photo,” says NUVO web editor Laura McPhee, “and my thought was we’ve never censored the female body when we reproduce artwork and I didn’t see a need to censor it because it was a male.” She adds that the paper never received complaints when images of nude females were published. One unhappy Hoosier is Krystal Johnston, whose 10-year-old daughter saw the paper. “I don’t think it should be put out there for children to get a hold of,” says the mom.
