The Buttocks is not an excretory organ

… but it might be a sexual organ…

The Federal Communications Commission has proposed a $1.4 million fine against 52 ABC Television Network stations over a 2003 broadcast of cop drama NYPD Blue….The fine is for a scene where a boy surprises a woman as she prepares to take a shower. The scene depicted “multiple, close-up views” of the woman’s “nude buttocks” according to an agency order issued late Friday….The agency said the show was indecent because “it depicts sexual organs and excretory organs , specifically an adult woman’s buttocks.”The agency rejected the network’s argument that “the buttocks are not a sexual organ.”[source]

Hey, I looked on YouTube for a clip of the offending scene, and could not find it. But I did find this:

  1. As of 2003, the anus was legally declared not a sexual organ when a Supreme Court ruling knocked down sodomy laws across the US. I was working in a fetish shop in Texas at the time, and though we could still not sell anything that was intended for insertion in the vagina (“massagers” and “educational models” were fine, I just couldn’t tell customers they could be used for sex), it became fine to say “this goes in your butt.” I have to assume that since the hole isn’t a sexual organ, the lumps of flesh flanking it aren’t, either.

  2. When correctly viewedEverything is lewdI can tell you things about Peter PanOr the Wizard of Oz, there’s a dirty old man!Tom Lehrer, SmutNote that for 13 year old boys the words “nude” and “woman” in the same sentence can be enough to trigger ejaculation.

  3. As of 2003, the anus was legally declared not a sexual organ when a Supreme Court ruling knocked down sodomy laws across the US.I may or may not disagree with this ruling, but it is not relevant. The buttocks and the anus are not the same thing. Conflate the two at your peril!

  4. agree with Greg, buttocks and anus are not the same thing. But it still confuesed me, is buttocks an organ? (sorry for asking dumb question)

  5. No, buttocks is not an organ. They are part of two organs, muscle and skin.However, and this is where people are getting confused, an “organ” can be a metaphor or an indirect reference. The human buttocks are a “sex organ” in the same way that people say “the most important sex organ is the brain.”
