    I particularly like the article by Mario Perniola Between Clothing and Nudity A perfect summery in first paragraphIn the figurative arts eroticism appears as a relationship between clothing and nudity Therefore, it is conditional on the possibility of movement transit from one state to the other If either of these poles takes on a primary or essential significance to the exclusion of the other then the possibility for this transit is sacrificed, and with it the conditions for eroticism In such cases either clothing or nudity becomes an absolute value.
