  • You could take an upskirt photo of a male transvestite, just an example. Or take one of a Scottsman, and maybe find he wears panties under there. Is taking an upskirt photo with permission exploitive? Do only prudish women or transvestites or Scottsmen in kilts object to the practice, while others would welcome it?
