    I personally do not believe in censoring 'art' however would I personally say that the photo shown in the link is 'art'? Dear god no. It's a smutty photo that looks like it was taken on the fly with little to no thought on it. Now, I'm a 28 year old guy.. and I like porn and I'm not ashamed to say that. I also like tasteful nude photos. That photo, for me, is neither. It screams a person who thinks taking a photo of a woman's vagina is automatically art. For me Art is about creation, the reason behind that creation and what that creation makes you (The viewer) feel. This photo has NOTHING creative about it, this photo has little to no reason behind it and what does it make me feel? Well, if i saw that photo on an adult porn site I wouldn't give it two thoughts. However, seeing it as 'art' makes me feel...kind of angry to be honest lol. The same way as if somebody came upto me and said "Justin Beiber, Miley Cyrus and Snoop Dogg are on the same level as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Queen." if you like them, fair enough but don't try and pass it off in the same class as the bands listed.

    Ditto, well put!


    Probably of interest to unusual art collectors, not that's not meant as sarcasm. However, other than that it simply looks like a "naughty" high-quality holiday snap, sort of thing you do when you go off on your first holiday together, just messing about. Most of us would simply delete it after having a good laugh about it!

    Its four years since the original post.

    Can't we have a new thread in which to discuss these issues?
