Pictures of Immodesty


I am just curious what Torah laws forbid looking at a picture of an immodestly clad woman? One who does so is not really looking at a woman, but is just seeing a collection of dots of ink (or pixels of light on a screen)?



  1. The Torah commands us to keep ourselves pure and holy and one of the definitions of holiness is not looking at inappropriate pictures or photos of any kind. The fact that the picture is a series of pixels or dots does not detract in any way from the fact that, together, the pixels are depicting something immodest. More than that, I have yet to meet someone who looks at any kind of picture – immodest or not – and only sees a series of pixels or dots.
