Male Intimate Parts Censored in Vienna

As part of an advertising campaign for Leopold Museum in Vienna, massive photos of male nude soccer players were posted around the city. However, many have complained about the images and have successfully censored the photos.

A prominent Vienna museum has decided to cover the "intimate parts" of three naked male soccer players on big posters put up in the Austrian capital after they caused an outcry.

"We got many, many complaints," Leopold Museum spokesman Klaus Pokorny said about the public display of the placards used to advertise its "Naked Men" exhibition due to open on Friday.

"We didn't realise that many, many people would be really upset or really angry in a way that we are also afraid about security, about protection of the visitors of the museum."
