No I don’t think I missed the point, I am very much aware of the website promoted. But from my perspective this particular photo is art, my perspective is only in relation to my own reality and experiences.
Just because you don’t agree with my opinion, does not give you the right to dictate what you think I have done…..like miss the point or something, you don’t know me at all, In fact I’m not really sure why you replied to me in the first place. My comment was the person asking if it’s porn or art, not you, and who are you anyway, some guy that takes pictures of buildings and things………….hmmmm
Wow, a little over-reaction to the simple comment "You miss the point - their account and submissions are made to promote their porn website here on dA."
I point out to you - I made no statement at all as to whether or not I agree or disagree with your opinion
I also point out that if anyone had the right to dictate what I thought, it would be I that had the right to dictate what I thought (or perhaps someone I've hired to take dictation) I would think my own thoughts are mine to express - especially considering not many people are certified and/or capable mind-readers
Lastly I'll also point out to you that what someone uploads to ONE account on dA is not always indicative of everything the individual may be doing/capable of as a photographer/artist
Try not to be so melodramatic over one TINY little comment and drop-it while you still have some face.
"drop-it while you still have some face." Nice try, but he had you way before you even thought of it. The irony of your rant about overreacting is amazing.
Their account and submissions being a promotional item for their Adult oriented site has nothing to do with what you were trying to prove and nothing to do with whether this particular deviation deserves some artistic merit or not. It is artistic and yes while the context of the whole shoot might be the intention of arousal, thus making it "pornography", it is still artistic and the fact that it is being used as a promotional item makes it more of an advertisement with the intention of generate traffic, rather then arouse, unless you consider masturbating to commercials healthy.
Anyway, there isn't really a point in trying to explain much of this to you but I just hate when people not only go crazy trying to defend a lost cause and especially when that is the porn/art debate.
Now YOU are missing the point of what I was saying, I won’t bother explaining....that would be pointless
and I like your last little comment about saving some face while I still can by just dropping it, it was clever, and you almost had me. I would like to re-direct you last sentence right back to you (I added a smiley face so you wouldn’t take me so seriously.)
Yeah why is that? In a very clinical sense you can tell she is aroused the same way an erection would denote sexual excitement in a guy. Does anyone know why DA deems an erect penis inappropriate but not the equivilant for females?
Seemingly. Does anyone know if there is a committee that decides these things or is it a single person? As you point out, the discrimination based on sex is blatant and simply not in keeping with the modern world.
First of all, how dare you cast aspersions on me, you have no right to judge me or my mental ability. Art is my hobby and I choose my right to freedom of speech.
I have no problem with male art nudes, I will look at those too. However the line between porn and art is alot finer for images involving men than those that involve women. The problem with art nudes is the number of people (Men and Women) who post nudes of themselves to DA becuase they get off on vouyerism. I can guarentee that at any given time of day you will find grainy ametuer closup posts of men holding thier erect penis' These are merely posted on DA for self gratification....
It's also unfortunate that female genitals are alot more pretty than male ones. So yeah, I stand by my original comment, if she had her fingers inserted or even in proximity then i would class this as pornography, but at the end of the day this is just another photo of an attractive naked girl.
Why dont you post us a picture of your penis so we can all admire your art?
lol post my penis, I would if I could sweetie. Despite what macros tell you there are women on the internet.
If you have a right to spew your nonsense, I can judge you all I want. You're really toeing the line to presenting a rather misogynistic argument.
There is nowhere where I'm talking about voyeurs, and you're mangling the point with assumptions that men would all be photoing themselves in an ugly voyeuristic manner and showing us their ugly penises. Here's a fun idea, penises are no more ugly or beautiful than any other piece of the body. And it's not your place to judge art simply based on gender bias.
This all boils down to an extremely simple fact: works posted here depicting women constantly pushes the boundary of what is porn and what isn't, and often gets away with it. Any work involving a penis is under danger of deletion and a swift ban, regardless of the talent involved in making the work.
I totally agree with you! I was being sarcastic... I begin to get a little annoyed with people on dA who seem to find nothing but negative in images, especially when it involves beautifull creatures like this one... Thank you ~theederv for your kind reply!
