One can be rationalised by intelectuals and doesnt induce guilt in the terminaly repressed.

Whose your favorite porn star?

I think the difference between erotic art/art nude & porn is that erotic art/art nude is not meant to be an aid to bashing one out. It acknowledges sexuality, but exists for other reasons, whereas porn only exists for one reason, & is generally a lot more lurid. Most art nude photography is used to sell the equipment it was shot with or the services of the photographer who shot it, rather than images themselves. Blah blah rationalisation ;)

Oh yeah, i acknowledge that there's a lot of 'genuine', good art out there of an erotic nature, but i do think some stuff that gets passed off as 'art', is not really any different from porn.
It's all subjective of course, but look at Butt Red by Jeff Koons, which i have here on page 137 of Erotic Art, by Angelika Muthesius and Gilles Néret.

Is it 'art' because she's wearing red gloves and boots? ;)

Is it not art because there's a cock going up an arse? Is such an attitude a Christian/Victorian hangover?

Trying to define what is & isn't art makes my head spin tbh

I'd do that in the name of art!

I could proudly show my mum too, cos it's interlektual 'n' stuff.
