News and Update-ish Crap:
I feel like ranting too! So I will!
One thing that's always been a pet peeve of mine is pornography that pretends to be art. Now, nude art does exist, and it can be a great form of art. Just look at Michelangelo's David. But there is a line. Art exists to make a point, a statement, or to express an idea. It is at the very least a display of something. In RPing communities, drawing characters for the sake of having a P. Cool reference of them is a big thing, but even things like that are art in that they're an expression of the character and his/her/it's concept. Art, essentially, wants to share something. Now, considering the nature of thoughts on sex in our culture (something else I can spend an hour ranting about but will summarize briefly here) that go along the lines of "girls should be slutty virgins, men should never, ever be virgins, and only the young are allowed to have it" sex is something that needs to be discussed and talked about because our minds are so fucking messed up with it.

But enough of that, this is about porn and art, not my thoughts on America's cultural sexuality. Art exists to make a point or express something, and that point can be made with any thing and sometimes has to. And sometimes that requires nudity or sexual imagery. You ever see that one painting made about 9/11 of the woman labeled America, her legs spread wide open as a whole plane is about to fly into her? That right their expresses a VERY powerful point, a point that couldn't have been made without that imagery. THAT'S art. An image of a woman on her back, looking like she's about to cum with her vagina pointed towards the camera, is NOT art. Put a weird in the background wearing a theater mask with a birds nose and dressed in a clown suit and then it is. And it barely has to be that absurd.

There are other ways to do it too. If art is an expression of something, maybe you're trying to express the beauty of the female body or the beauty of sex? Around then the line gets harder to define, but there are things you can do. Hopefully you're smart enough to know where the line is in that case. Just try to not include what you don't need, and the more...'hardcore' it gets, the less likely it is to be art.

Now, all of this said, WHY am I going on this tirade? Well. Go to the Collections tab. Click it. Make sure you go to Popular.
Chances are a lot of the collections you're seeing are nothing but pornographic images. Yeah. This annoys me. VERY MUCH. URHHGGGLLBURLG.
