Animal Versus Human Nudity

Why is it ok for a dog to display it’s genitals but a human male in the same pose would be labeled as adult content, pornographic, shocking, disgusting, etc.? The image below was on Buzzfeed, a post about taking naps.

animal and human nudity

Not a sexual topic, not even about animals especially. It was just an image they used to illustrate taking a nap. The dog’s cock and balls are plainly visible, not blacked out or otherwise edited out. No warning about nudity for under age readers on the site. Weird really isn’t it?

I don’t think the photo was sexual or should have been edited out. The comparison just interests me. If a nude adult human male were posed the same way… it never would have been used, at all. Why is animal nudity ok but human nudity shocks us?
