Almost, But Not Quite, Sex

Tzvi Fishman seems to get a lot of responses and comments when he deals with the more biological aspects of life.  I'm not sure I can deal with that subject properly but I looked around for something approximate.  And I think I found it:

Did you know that, in the United States, the test of obscenity still hinges on a 1973 Supreme Court ruling which held that a work is not legally obscene if it has "literary, artistic, political or scientific value."

If we can be liberal enough to apply that standard here in Israel, although I am not sure what our own High Court for Justice holds up as a standard, I ask you, dear readers:

According to that test, is Ehud Olmert obscene?

Can we write a play or a book about him?  Can his wife, the artist, use him as a subject, abstract or otherwise?  Can we analyse him for any psychological value?

There must be something, no?  Some value?
