Identifying nudity online is a notoriously thorny issue. Is it a butt or a bent elbow? Renaissance art or porn? Well, now one company that builds algorithms to identify such differences has built a website that you can challenge with your own, um, material.
After a spate of recently-hacked phone nudes, it's clear our advice to never shoot pictures of your own junk isn't going to catch on. So if you're going to do it, at least do it well. Here's how to make your naked shots shine.
Ed. note: Above is the SFW version of the video since Google has pulled down both uploads of the "NSFW" versions. Update and original version are below.
A gentle reminder to creative types the world around: if you try to put breasts on Facebook—even highly artistic breasts—Facebook will Shut. You. Down.Glad we could clear that up. If you'd like to be corrupted by the original photograph, you can see it . [ via ]
500px, one of the best iPad apps for finding great pictures, was pulled from the App Store today because Apple is Tobias Funke never nude-levels of prudish when it comes to the naked body. Apparently, the app made it too easy to find pictures with nudity in them so it got kicked out.
Elbows and boobs. Both are great in their own special ways, but they are definitely not the same thing. You and I might know that well enough, but it seems that Facebook has a little more trouble with the distinction. That's why they took down this elbowlicious picture.
A Facebook employee just posted this picture of Zuck (on Facebook) and a bunch of other shirtless dudes doing what shirtless dudes do best: stand around shirtless. The hoodie is gone. Just nips. Just chest hair. Just pure, unfiltered Zuck.
What a way to start the week! Body-worshipped
Hollywood TV brass Christina Hendricks (of Mad Men fame) and Olivia Munn (of, uh, yeah...) Heather Morris (of Glee cheerleader fame) has had her body posted across the internet due to unwanted cellphone prying. Yes, it happened, again.

What's the only thing more exciting than a new Core i7 MacBook Air at your local Apple Store? No, not the Genius Bar helping you out with a cracked iPhone screen—a ranting, pot-smoking lunatic crashing a Q&A. Naked.
Oh A Billion Wicked Thoughts, indeed. The now-landmark (it counts now, right?) work conducted by neuroscientists Ogi Ogas and Sai Gaddam revealed plenty about our sexy internet, um, habits. But, according to their data, only 4% of the web's top sites is porn.
It's one thing to have some sort of "noble purpose" when you grab nudie pics from a person's computer. Extorting people for them and making money off their identities is quite another. That's what 32-year-old Luis Mijangos did, and it's completely vile.
To save the animals we must lie down naked with the animals. At least, uh, that's the gist of this PETA porn site news I've been chewing on today as I try and understand what it all means.
If you're going to live in a house filled with clouds, balloons, and Spongebobs, you might as well live it up. Thank you, Chien-Wang Yang. Thank you. [Fubiz]
A Florida man got into a particularly nasty fight with his live-in girlfriend earlier this week. This was clearly the final straw, because, after a quick shower, he got two swords out and challenged her to a duel. A break up fight to the death??
Despite the great things the internet has done, it's also made us prudish about having naked images of us captured, and that's made it harder to get people to take of their clothes for you. Until now...
I've never run a marathon, but I'd imagine it's trying enough without thousands of volts of electricity coursing through your convulsing, naked frame. Yes, naked—as was the case for Ohioan Brett Henderson. He didn't win the marathon.
We're very tolerant here at Giz—if the thought of your iPhone 4 without its clothes on gets you excited, by all means! But it's probably not very good for the phone. Slap on this exposed-guts back decal instead.
