If you go to India you will see pictures and sculptures of people having sex all over buildings. Thay have no problem with it so why is the thought of pics in NJ causing an issue?. Sex is a norman and natural thing. Every person on earth will at some point do it so again what is the issue?

Depictions of sex can be controversial enough without throwing slavery into the mix. Indeed, the work in question depicts oral sex between a slave and a white man, which has connotations far beyond the sexual. I'm not doubting prudery is playing a role in the controversy, but it is a bit more complicated than that.
