Naked Art & Photography Or Porn

The Issues Pertaining to Bare Art vs Porn:
Bare Art – So as a nudist organization with a social network on our website, we recently were faced with an intriguing issue. After you have a profile in our community, you are able to upload photos and share them. For us, naked images in this circumstance are more about the natural type and tasteful bare art. We are not nor plan to be a Porn site or “picture-peddler” website. Consequently we must track the photographs folks share and do something about any images we might deem sexually improper or pornographic.
Now what I Have come to understand is that judging these graphics is entirely subjective. When does a image go from being arty to being sexual or pornographic? It is not as easy a judgment as you might think! A bare body could be expose a specific manner that can be somewhat sexual, but one small change of bearing, and it can become fully innocent. We definitely need to let people express themselves freely. The question is where to draw the line..

A superb example to chew over this question is by considering the paintings of Modigliani, an early 20th century painter whose artwork was just shared in a gallery for one day, as it was deemed too scandalous to be revealed! Considering the unclothed pictures below, this artwork was considered porn in the day. Here the sexuality seems to come in the pose, the course and feeling of the girl’s gaze..It’s all so subtle!

A potential advertiser for our website offered these guidelines, which are still quite subjective:
“If you would not need a naturist child to see http://nudenudist.com/tube/now-onto-my-first-nudist-nexperience-which-happened-just-this-past-weekend/ , it likely is sexual rather than just straightforward nudity or art. In case it appears like they are merely in a bathroom or sitting on a bed with their legs spread and they are considering their crotch and their crotch is the focus of the photo, it’s probably meant to be sexual. When it is done with nice scene, nice light and exquisite, it’s probably artwork. It’s all about the intent of the pic.”
What do you think about these guidelines? Would they work in judging a naked image? Would a painting like Modigliani’s go on a naturist website?
