Idiots taking pictures of their junk in their Mom's basement, whores spreading their legs to the world as if this was a porn site advert.
THINGS I AM PERSONALLY NOT AGAINST:
Tasteful or artistic nudity in some way, shape or form, the human form when being taken care of.
I'm also the person who made the "Nudity does not always equal porn stamp".
I DIDN'T JUST MAKE THAT STAMP FOR FUNSIES PEOPLE.
I do believe nudity can be beautiful, but goddamn people, there is a difference between artistic nudity, pornography, and idiots taking pictures of their genitals because they think it's totally hot cool.
Every time I go to the Artistic Nude section or whatever, I get slapped in the face with 1000 old man dicks, bondage porn, girls being total sluts while thinking HEY IT'S ART LOLOL I'M NOT A WHORE.
I know what they're aiming for, but uh. It's kind of creepy.
If I wanted to see this shit I'd go to a porn site.
And my reports on blatant pornography get tossed aside like they're fine :V
It has been said before but...
edit: And I realize that a lot of things on this website in my/your/his/her/whatever's eyes isn't art.
Hah, this is a tad hypocritical, yes, but there are specific categories for things that are deviantART (in terms of website) like stamps.
Not everything on here is art and I know that.
Still shouldn't be amateur,
This is my opinion.
I'm not asking for you to believe or die.
some art has nudity but not all nudity is art [specifically when it defies the most respectable definitions of art], art uses nudity, doesn;t get overwhelmed by it, doesn't have sexual arousal as the only possible intent and outcome, period.
it's not an elitist thing, it's just that the internet made life a mess. before the internet, did anyone EVER try and pass porn for art? NOPE. now, every stick figure or boob close up is art. bullshit.
sorry ut it's true, though. porn has never been considered art ever before, now thanks to deviantart's policy of gimmeyourmoneys, people like you buy it.
I think the proper way to use nudity in an artistic way is to not make it the focus of the picture, but have the model with props, a bit of clothes, or makeup, a nice background, something interesting, and have them be showing off their curves or body in a mature fashion, not just plastering vagina pics everything.
I enjoy tasteful nudes, if you actually know what you're doing and need certain parts of the body showing in your piece, then by all means, show them. What I fucking hate is seeing cellphone shots of girl's duckfacing in a mirror with their sloppy tits hanging out, and guys whipping their dicks out in front of a camera in the same category as beautiful nude photos that actually took time and effort.
Only a small percent is art, the rest are whores taking pictures of their naked bodies with their phones, JUST to get attention.
You probably won't.
Most people are decent enough to put their work on mature if it is NSFW which that definately was.
I have seen great, actual artistic nudes before. But just taking a picture of your dick and posting it here is gross. Or girls who take slutty naked photos and then they DEMAND the comments be appropriate. Ugh. Just Ugh.
But this stamp = win.
