I know it when I see it:

Justice Potter Stewart's excellent defintion of pornography is being put to yet another imaginative test, by a medical imaging company named Eizo. They have released a calendar of X-ray pictures of a model. The Dvorak blog is linking to the Eizo calendar, and they ask the interesting question: if you can’t see the naughty bits, but can see behind the naughty bits, is it naughty?

I think this sort of decision is definitely in the eye of the beholder. This particular beholder (me, that is) found exactly one of the pictures to be over the top. The rest are genuinely amusing, and the quality of beauty they convey is just slightly less than what those pitiful size-1 models can do for me.
