Sorry, horndogs, the above may be the sexist woman you'll find in the App Store these days.
Last week, with little to no fanfare or even advance warning, Apple decided to yank ALL apps containing "overt sexual content" from the App Store. Sounds like the usual no-smut policy, right?
We wish. In House of Jobs-speak, "overt" apparently applies to content as benign as cute models in one-piece bathing suits. When one developer caught flat-footed by the new ban challenged the fate of, say, the SPORTS ILLUSTRATED swimsuit-edition app, an Apple employee vaguely hinted it might be asked to hit the bricks as well.

Apparently parental blocks and age-appropriateness ratings weren't enough for Apple, whose sudden ban means that developers who were actually making decent money on essentially PG-rated innuendo have been cut off at the knees. Worse, you can still purchase R-rated movies (showing tons of skin, and more!) on iTunes — just not in the App Store.
Welcome to the return of the Eisenhower Administration — or Victorian England.
