    Someone should post a video of them doing the "helicopter" and see how fast we can bring replies. And to make it "art" we should film it in black and white!

    Then why are you still reading and posting in it.

    Seeing as how you are too, something tells me you ain't all that Old-N-Feeble!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Wow! Amazon has sex slaves now! I knew they had almost everything, but this is really exciting news!

    By the way, just look at some ordinary photographic magazines from the 40's and 50's and you'll see nude figure photos in almost every issue. Where was the outrage then? Any kid could probably pick one up on a news stand. Times have changed I guess. Now Janet Jackson shows a boob with a pasty on TV and the country goes crazy. Deliver me from the moral majority, or minority or whatever it is now.

    Sorry for the late arrival to this thread, but I was seeing it at work and the title alone scared me off of contributing until now. I remember the last time this happened. I left the "discussion" thread on my image that generated the shitstorm to preserve for posterity the evidence of what happened, both good and bad. I wish Emil hadn't yielded to the backlash, but I can completely understand how and why he would have. Frankly I'm surprised that it took this long for the teapot tempest to get whipped up again - it's been what, four years maybe, since the last one? Things in general seem calmer than last time, though - I actually got a death threat in the form of a bible quote as a result. Here, we're having a (comparatively) rational discussion. But yes, it's an old tired argument that won't ever get decided beyond Jason's well-stated summation of APUG policy.

    I'm old, not dead. Okay, not that old either but feeble for sure.

    If I'm reading Emil's responses properly he wouldn't have deleted his images except for respect and compassion for his models. If not for their feelings I suspect he might have politely given the puritan(s) a one-finger-salute.

    I don't take those seriously anymore. Since I'm going to hell anyway, I'm shooting for a reservation in the VIP section...

    Erotic or Pornographic?

    Weston's nudes.
    Steichen's nudes of O'Keeffe.
    Many of Mapplethorpe's photographs, including those of flowers.
    Gandolfi's bromoils.

    All are nude and maybe erotic, but none are pornographic.
    Just my two cents.
