And I don't get why nudity apparently offends people. Anyone care to explain this to me?
It goes back to the puritanical and fundamentalist beliefs regarding sex and purity. Nudity, as part of sexuality, has been viewed as simply for procreation, and it also goes to the fear that arousal will cause sex and children whose paternity is questionable.

The Age of consent in Canada is 16, 14 in Germany, Hungary, Madagascar, 13 in spain, various ages in the US, 12 in Mexico city. They vary, although a handful of nations have the age of consent at 14.
