Why is explicit violence allowed on most American television networks but not nudity?


I just watched a movie on SyFy that contained scenes of explicit violence and graphic mutilation. However, in a scene where a bare butt was supposed to be seen, the network watchdogs blurred it out. I am curious -as I often have been- why most American TV networks execs are comfortable with the explicit violence and graphic mutilation but get their panties in a bunch over a shot of ordinary bare flesh?
