    I've made a fair bit of erotic art and I think I'm very open minded about these things. I don't think there's an objective way to tell if it's art or not; you have to try and get inside the head of the artist, explore the work. I think there's always room for debate.

    That said, this one for me is just sex. That's a great butt crack though icon_smile.gif

    Art or sex? They do not have to be mutually exclusive.

    I don't know if it is really art or just clip art used by gay bars to advertise in those local gay magazines you pick up for free at the bars.

    I was under the assumption that if you're doing it right, sex is art... and definitely if you're especially creative in it ;)

    Art is sexy and Sex is an art. Capture it however you like and let it give you that good feeling. It's never the same twice.

    Well sex with me is like contemporary art. It's satyrical, self-referential and one-note. And confusing. icon_exclaim.gif

    I don't sell timeshares, I don't really sell anything cause I have no business savvy whatsoever. I simply like to be thorough...

    Art is expression. Art can stir feelings and emotions.
    I do not put my judgement on what others create as to what is art, and what is not.
    I just admire those who can create an aesthetic no matter what the medium.

    By the way, I do find that photo to be sexy and artistic, as well as the tattoo.

    So if it's made for commercial use .... then it's not art?
