...being crossed somewhere.


I'm really sick of seeing grainy photos of people's genitalia popping up everywhere on dA under the most random search terms.

Yes, there is such thing as an artistic nude. But the emphasis must be on artistic and there is nothing artistic about flashing your cash and prizes for a webcam. It comes down to intent. Are you intending to make real art, or are you honestly just trying to draw attention to yourself by exhibiting your genitals for the world to see?

I can see where you are coming from, but i'm 50/50 on it. 
I will admit that i do submit webcam-photos but not for your assumption of reason. I do have my, proper reasons, as i am soon to upgrade to a HD quality webcam and eventually get a stand for my canon camera, some girls got to start somewhere, yes there are some girls who do it with no skill or taste just for attention. But that does NOT go for everyone.
If an artist can make a pile of sticks and call it art, then why can't a good webcam photo be art as-well?
There is always a large debate about nude photography, and that debate will probably go on forever.

"flashing your cash and prizes" that's a brilliant line. And I agree with  you 100%.

No, turning on the mature content filter blocks artistic nudes along with the trashy stuff. Honestly my point of view on this has changed a lot since then anyway and I'm over it, but your suggestion indicates that you don't actually understand the point I was making.

Oh no, I understood your point completely. 

But as the old doc use to say, If it hurts to put your foot behind your head, don't put your foot behind your head.

Let me be the first to disagree with u. The male and female body is a beautiful thing. Posting pictures of your own shows confidence which is hard, excuse the bad wording, to come by these days. And this is coming from someone who has absolutely no pictures of myself on the internet. I enjoy the male body. It is a beautiful thing and posting a pic of yourself saying it isnt for cheap views and comments is kinda pathetic.

I'm pretty sure she is saying that distasteful, shit quality photos aren't art. If men want to take a tasteful picture of his junk that's fine... just don't show off a grainy nasty picture of it in the worse poses imaginable. If real artists wanted to see that, there are porn websites.

I entirely agree with you!

Women are more and more treated as half-humans around the world while in an art site we see more and more of their breasts, genitals, vaginas etc. and too often in a humiliating posture.

Who are those women - or very young teenagers? Just tell me!

It makes me sick!

I don't care about the penis as they are not for women but it makes me sick as well!

I agree whoeheartedly, but... (you knew that was coming!) I don't know who gets to define what is art and what is not. Ideally, art is defined by the creator' intent: did they intend to create something artistic? Does it express a feeling that the artist had? Who are we to decide what was going on in an artist's mind? But I agree, taking a picture of my wang just to try to score points with the ladies (yeah, right) isn't artistic. I'm reminded of the US Supreme Court case on obscenity, where a justice said something to the effect of "I can't define pornography, but I know it when I see it."

Can one report art that one feels is not appropriate for DA?

Never mind. I see the button. Perhaps the solution is to report those works which you feel aren't in keeping with the spirit of DA.

While I respect your opinion, I also fear defining "art". Did you know that there was a Pablo Picasso art show that was not shown in the US because the exhibitors knew that (due to the eroticism in the artwork) it would not be allowed in the US. Fans of Picasso had to drive (or fly) to Montreal to view the show. The link is here
[link]
Picasso did a drawing in 1903 "The Mackerel" in which he depicts a woman having sex with a fish. Is that art?
If Marilyn Monroe had taken a webcam picture (assuming they had such things in her time) of her vagina would it have become a (very expensive) piece of art?

Great minds think alike my dear.
It seems the only way to get any recognition on dA is to post nudes or be such an amazing artist that your art looks like the original.
