Okay, if your perspective employer didn't see the copy, I take back my
last post.

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

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.
