The article focuses on the eventual proliferation of erotic imagery in the future, as far as art development is concerned. The author cites the assertion of many historians who claim that the next generation will be born to decorate the world with sanitized images. The desire is said to be a result of their nostalgia; therefore, these images will simply serve as an untroubling visual currency which continues to undergo processes of sanitization and simplification in order to fulfill their task.
