Once Naked For Nirvana, Now A Teen Spirit – NPR interview with the kid on the cover.
I was going to post that a couple of days ago but Adam beat me to it on Twitter. I thought the interview was interesting in a “What ever happened to …” kind of way. And far more people have seen his penis than have seen mine but it’s no big deal. On the cover he has the right idea, that is the only way to go swimming.

Back in 1991, nobody thought anything of it but to release that album cover today, people would be carrying on like it was the end of the world. Oh, the poor, sexually exploited child! We’ll have to ban this lest some pedophile buy this record and jerk off over it.
