...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%.

just turn on the mature content filter then.

Oh my gosh! You've solved all of my problems! How ever can I thank you!?
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.

so nude sculpture, paint with nude girl, or other are not art? photography is art like all this, and i don't see differences

i agree some shots here are just for exhibit, but you can't say ALL is like this, some nude shots are very artistic

If you read my description, you would see that I say OVER AND OVER AGAIN that I do believe there are such things as ARTISTIC NUDES and I"M NOT TALKING ABOUT THOSE.
