A well fought and informative debate, on both sides, gentlemen.
But it also seem to me to be one of those types of debate where the adversarial format isn't necessarily the best approach to finding 'truth' or making the most fundamental observations. Too much controversy involved. For example, the way you guys skirted around the vast religious traditions of prohibition of nudity. The opinion of what the vast majority of humanity deems 'ok' would seem more than relevant, regardless of the objective 'validity' of those beliefs. And there's too many points in such debate that make the arguer vulnerable to counterattack if mentioned. Seems like mentioning sex-crime statistics, and questioning social 'shame' indoctrination was right on the edge of that line. I'm glad it didn't get heated enough that either of you had to take the 'But we must protect the children!' stance.
