I would probably view it as an issue of image quality. We have had
Template:Nopenis for some time which among other things focuses on

The providence of an image is a quality issue. Since we have no
shortage of pics of women in various states of undress (see
Category:Nude women and Category:Female genitalia) some of which have
fairly clear providence (see Category:SuicideGirls for example) I see
no reason why we should accept further images of questionable
providence and quality.

I've already created Template:Nobreasts and it would probably useful
if someone put together Template:Novulva
