    I'm looking for an app kind of like caffeine except for toggling wallpaper. Something that will let me switch from my trashy semi-pornographic wallpaper to something more respectful as needed with a single click. Is there anything like that?

    I don't know of anything like that. (Someone else here may.)

    One option I do know of however is: if you're not using Spaces, you can use Hyperspaces to set your wallpaper on each space, set your apps to be open on all spaces, then just flip to another space when necessary.

    I managed to find a decent solution myself, but I'll give hyperspaces a look too.

    If anyone is wondering...

    Change Desktop (http://www.bergstrand.org/brian/software/ChangeDesktop/)

    Step 1: Make a "Collection" with two images.
    Step 2: Set it so that images are only changed on launch.
    *Note* It seems the app sets one image as your actual background and the other one is layered over top of it. By luck I ended up with the nice presentable image as the "actual" background. It probably depends on the order you add the images.
    Step 3: Press command + shift + 1 to toggle the less appropriate wallpaper on and off.

    Keep in mind the next time you log in your wallpaper will be set opposite of what it was when you logged off!
