My definition of "erotic" would require there to be a sexual element.
Nudity is not automatically sexual, there would need to be something
about the pose which could be reasonably associated with sex.
Things like spread out legs, arms behind back, and pushing forward of the
chest? C'mon, the pose was obviously intended to be a sexual pose. The
very title and theme of the song they were depicting is "Virgin Killer".
The image fails to be "sexy" for the sole reason that it's a prepubescent
making the pose.
