Hello, I’m a 17 years old male and struggling with some things. I’ve searched a lot of threads on this forum about nudity and haven’t found definitive answers. I’ve gathered some informations though, for example, that the Cathecism wouldn’t define a picture of a naked girl as pornography, but it could as well lead to sin. Can you look to naked people to see how beatiful they are? Because what seems to be said here is that looking is not the problem, but the resulting lust. And you could have lust as well looking to dressed people. But our bodies aren’t, in itself, bad. And if you look to a woman’s body, without fantasizing about having sex with her, but just admiring her body, would it be sinful?
For example, you can look to a woman’s face and think “wow, she’s so beautiful”, and I think it wouldn’t be a sin. But you could look and then imagine bad things, which would be wrong. Why wouldn’t it be the same case with breasts?
Btw, of course I am not implying that it’s just one-sided, I’m using my perspective as a male, but the same question could be used by a female point of view.
I hope I made myself clear.
God bless you all.
