Porn and art by paramoreSUCKS Porn and art by paramoreSUCKS
I see many PR0N IS NAWT ARTZ!!1 but they never explain why it's not art.

Boring drama films are considered art but porn films are not art? Drawings of cats are considered art but drawings of people fucking are not art? Lol wut?

:iconartis1plz::iconartis2plz:




I'm not going to argue anymore over this.

It's real cute when they put "deviant" in the sites name too.
I agree with this so much.
Thanks for being one of the few to actually post the other side of the argument.

What is designated as "Art" is subjected to the norms of a societies culture, and culture is constantly changing. In ancient Greece, they would have men/women who were judged perfect in physical form, stand naked on pedestals on public squares as a celebration of the beauty of the human body. I don't think your gonna see a lot of that today, not very PC.

I just can never understand how close minded these prudes are. So many have tried to give me a reason why its not art, but they have yet to give me a decent argument and not contradict themselves in it. I'm all for others opinions but when their head is so far up their arse that they can't hear reason it just gets ridiculous.

I'd be okay with decently drawn "porn" or something. A sexualized image of someone. Something that looks like time and effort was put into it.
I'm on deviantART to see art, when I say art I mean pieces that people have spent years on perfecting their skills to create. [I'm also on here to argue c; ]
What I don't want to see is a webcam quality image of someone spreading their black hole of an anus JUST THERE ON THE DEVIANTART HOMEPAGE
     SODOMIZING MY EYES
     I DID NOT NEED TO SEE AN ANUS TODAY
     BUT I DID
     THANK YOU DEVIANTART
[Then again I'd rather not see some of the pokemon inflation porn/art either. Better than the black hole butt.] [Or that one I found at 2am of someone taking a shit. WHY]
Also, anyone can bend over and take a picture of their ass hole. Not everyone can produce a decent piece of art. Of course, by that logic half of deviantART's base users don't post real art.
I think I'd rather see shitty ms paint bases than some of the awful porn I've seen on the homepage.
  Some "porn" is art... but the shit some random ass people just take from porn sites and post on here in super pixelated low res forms... isn't art to me. [That's like over half the porn I find on here, stolen bs.]

If you go by the Dictionary definition of 'art', 'Human effort to imitate, supplement, alter, or counteract the work of nature.' Anything can be art, even porn.

It all depends on how it is all executed. Now, if the porn being made is just people fucking just to get viewers turned on enough so they can jack off and relieve themselves, then it wouldn't really be considered art. Now, if the porn is being made to express the pleasure caused by having sex or the beauty of the human body engaging in the activity with another, then it could be considered art. Art is never really a black and white type subject. There are so many shades of grey, even when it comes to porn, because there are just so many different kinds and different ways to express it.

Not anymore actually..

I actually changed my opinion about this during a discussion at school. Some porn is art, but it depends on the quality, artistic view and how it is presented. Erotica and hentai is are examples of sexual art in my opinion.

Because while watching porn everyone thinks: "hey, those tits really represent a deep political message and come from a fascinating culture, and the hips, it's something psychological, and those slapped asses represent a complicated philosophy, and that ball gag and drooling and moaning represent something very deep and artistic as well. Let's think deeply about human condition and philosophy while watching this porn crap."

Porn is art. Nearly anything can be art since art is subjective. 

However, it is clearly stated in the rules that porn is not allowed on DA. So while it is still art, it is more acceptable for sites that allow erotic artwork.

Blurry camera shots of someone's tits, ass, dick or vag is art. Just really, really bad art.

I agree anything can be art really. I don't mind porn but I do mind.....when it is badly done. I person can look at a well drawn piece of art of two people having sex, showing how emotional they are and a deep connection between them, And just say its porn and completely trash it.
I like writing erotica and such, but maybe this is just me since I tend to like reading about romanticized and emotional physical contact more than "just fucking".

How about the lack of spirituality included, the lack of message and the lack of the discreet and beautiful sublimity art carries with it, pleasing the minds of artists, twisting messages in their head and pleasing their ayes with beautiful details and such nice, neat, thought through things meant for beauty and the discovery of the details of life, death and the dream worlds and NOT FOR J*CKING OFF!

Some nudes I consider art, depending on the estetics and creativity but porn is BY FAR not art. Same goes for some nudes. Just snapping a pic of your **** or breasts doesn't make it art.
Not shut it with the blah blah blah, it's how I see art, it's my opinion, it's not yours to bash. Now, if you're just here to criticise other people's opinions, you may just as well get lost and get a life

Well see it seems like the need of art now and days is completely blown over and there are a great summon of people not only on here but other sites that are like "Hey ima take a picture of my vagina or penis!!!!!" Okay then. Where is the artistic value in it?? Whats its purpose?? :iconmebob: is an artist that does nude art but has a more classy way and a true reasoning behind all his artwork. Unlike, shes even under !8 years old :iconspillartist95: but that's only half of the reasoning of her showing her underage body *She is even my age* is the fact that she basically backs her ass up and takes her thong wedges it up her ass crack and snaps a pic of it on her webcam. Like uggghhhhhh really? @---@

I think some nude are *Not porn just nude in general* is artwork but people need to start using it in a manner of ART. Not to just snap a picture of your breast or penis and put it on deviantart or other sites and be like "Yea it is art so STFU" No. Just no. Have a reasoning and an artistic value in it.

Problem is that because people sell their bodies for money. It's not love or some think. I would tolerate if is love in question, but for sure no. And young kids instead of having a life, they watch porn. I read in newspapers that one guy went crazy because of watching porn and he started raping young girls. Thinking like rape is okay because they do that in porn. That's not art. Art is when you draw something creative and something what makes sense. Or art is just an hobby for some people. Porn is not creative always someone gets rape by billion (I mean that ironic) people, Or just some guy comes in house and fack woman.
Just sayin' my option don't spam me and stuff and sorry for my bad English.

Not many people know that in the world is something more that porn.

I heard an interesting definition of art from one a professor that changed how I think about pornography, maybe it will for you too. "Art is anything that is made or done." I like this idea. Basically putting on your socks, having sex, and a picture from your vacation are all valid forms of art. I think this is the best definition for art, because almost all of the experience is dependent on the person watching, not the intentions of producer. (Which most times you cannot know, and only changes how the VIEWER thinks about it, it doesn't actually change the image.) Things like brain chemistry and how you were raised all greatly affect how we see anything, just as our current mood can make us say something is a masterpiece or a failure.

As for porn, Pornography is just art that tries to elicit sexual arousal. All Porn is art, but not all art is porn.

But that isn't the real question we're trying to ask here, because we all know that the title art means basically nothing, especially from my definition. I think what we're really trying to ask is "Is it okay enjoy looking at pornography, and to think about it critically like we do other forms of art?" When you ask it like that, I think the answer has to be yes, unless you morally object to things that arouse you. (not being snarky, that's a completely fair thing to believe.) In the US, many of our cultures (and their aggregation) tell us that pornography is bad, and is something only for adults, yet we all recognize that we consume pornography for the sake of masturbating.

So I ask that we all consider, since we agree that we all use porn to help us masturbate, just this part of the question: "Is it okay to think about pornography rationally like we do other forms of art?"

If people can make art by painting a picture of toilet paper roll still life and call that art, or just a close up of someone's shiney car bumper, I don't see how a painting of intercourse couldn't be art. Who says you can't artistically express yourself through sex? So, if I post up a racy drawing of me touching myself (though, that violates the rules so I can't post it anyway), it's not art because it's sexually explicit? You can make art out of everything, though I guess that's just my opinion. Art can be from drawing fluffy cute ponies to some ginormous troll cock penetrating a horses ass. Art can be depressing, content, sexually arousing, humorous, scary, plain out demented, etc.

I think nudity is beautiful.
I think love making is beautiful.

I think random pictures of fucking would
be mostly for page views, flames and so on.
Plus you got the whole shit with underaged users
whoring to the camera. Which I sadly stumbled upon.

...Without maturity tags.
Srsly, they admitted to being 11 and fiddling with their vag.

Disturbing.
