Self-Censored Decor: Hiding a Few Items When the 'Rents Visit

I might be an adult (technically), but that doesn't mean I don't get nervous when my parents come to visit my home. Not only do I want my house to be in tip-top shape (to fool them into thinking I have my life in order!) I try to not have, untoward out in view when they walk through.

My roommate and I certainly don't have an apartment full of nude photos or anything, but we do have a framed art collage from a friend that uses a vintage Playboy photo as inspiration, some ABC magnets on our stove that spell out a funny (albeit dirty-mouthed, adjusted for the above photo) phrase and a couple of other minor things sprinkled around the house. Do I take them down when my parents come to visit?

You bet I do.

Any other folks who are fans of say, vintage Playboys or funny framed phrases (Steve Lambert's popular "We've had sex in this room" prints, spring to mind) have to do some hiding when parents come to visit the home? Or are me and my roommate being silly? Have you ever seen something funny or cute that you liked but didn't incorporate into your home because you didn't want guests or your parents to see?
