Comment 1 by Rtambree :

Surprising to hear the (atheist) Chinese censoring the brief nude scene in Titanic 3D.

Cameron said on Colbert that the official reason was that men would reach out towards the screen, and this would disrupt the viewing of other audience members. Reason or rationalisation?

The Soviets were against porn because, as I understand it, they considered it bourgeois, decadent and corrupting. I don't know if that's an accurate representation of their views, official or private, or what the Chinese take on that is. I think they do in general look down on Westeners as soft and decadent, but I'm not clear on that either.
