That's the website! This particular client ONLY saw the PDF, NOT the website content.

It's so ridiculously hypocritical, women (and some men) can lust after Brad Pitt, and men (and some women) can lust after Jennifer Lopez, and they talk about it in the office. That's OK. And obviously it's OK to tell me that an interviewer is homosexual (well, did I *need* that information?), since he did it, but then it's wrong of me to alert them to what I do have as a sample on my laptop and I'm the one wrong for showing it?

Please let's just drop this discussion. I DO NOT find women in bathing suits offensive---and the whole point is being totally missed. It was the layout I was showing, the "design" of the calendar part, obviously I had to scroll through the models to get to the design.

I've already agreed that the website needed to come down because the verbiage was risque, so you're being redundant and I think kind of nasty Donna.


and the uber empyre

Your description of what had been done to the photographs started doing this until the words "bruises" and "so they looked as perfect and delectable as succulent peaches ready to be bitten into". IMHO, that's where it crossed the line from a piece of graphic work into something sexual or possibly pornographic. I find that peaches phrase particularly offensive, especially for a portfolio. Now I'm faced not just with photographs that aren't particularly to my liking, but also with verbiage that makes me visualize things that I don't want to. I'm sorry, but I'm not prone to biting into "succulent" women, no matter how hot they look, and I prefer not to go there with my thinking.
