    You know what I find interesting? That men in the Bible can be seen nude, and it is not always shameful. But women's nudity is never (to the best of my recollection) mentioned without shame. Except in sex with their husbands (Song of Solomon).

    Well heck. I was going to say David, but when I read the story.......
    I guess I stopped reading too soon.

    As far as the other, I was surprised to read this. I don't recall ever doing so before. I know, shame on me.

    Nope... just highlights the fact that there are inherent differences between men & women, in their sexuality.

    The "for job" part threw me off on the David one. I didn't know the Gethsemane one, either. :)
