[QUERY] PG-13 rule concerning anatomy and nudity

Postby Piscany » Fri Jan 11, 2019 6:57 am

Now, Piscany is a nation which has a custom humanoid species in charge, somewhat resembling Gillmen. Now, I want to break down the biology of this species in a factbook, and something I want to do is have a sort of diagram/image of the average person of this race, and to convey that I'm obviously going to have to depict or give some sort of description of the *ahem* reproductive system.

Now what I want to ask is this:

1. Am I allowed to depict nudity and/or genitalia if it's in an anatomical, scientific context, either human or some other odd design?
2. If not, can I describe it briefly in a subsection of the factbook?
3. I also have censored versions of the diagrams, as well as two other ones that display the organs and skeleton. Could I use those instead?

Thanks!

Hard to give a definitive ruling without seeing the exact images and context, but my general thinking is: The concept of the factbook is fine, but stay away from showing human sex organs. If you're not sure, it might be best to use the censored versions of the diagrams.

Well, the thing is, the sex organ censor is pixellated to make them unidentifiable. Would that be alright?

Or maybe I can PM you the images for approval.

Having the sex organs censored would be acceptable.

Ah, I see. Thank you, then. Might give a warning on the heavily pixellated nudity in the factbook, just to be on the safe side.
