"bathing beauties, sultry sirens, a woman enjoying a golden shower" It sounds like the people who organized this have a 1950s mentality about sexuality.  This is 2016, where we recognize the eroticism of male nudes as well as female nudes and we don't name works of art with creepy archaic feminine tropes.  For more information, check out these excellent articles on the rising number of male nudes by female artists as well as how contemporary female artists are portraying the female form more realistically than the romanticized ideas of "feminine" sexuality of the male painters of history.  http://www.artnews.com/tag/female-artists/
