    It depends on the viewer and the intent of the artist.

    actually not.

    And the first one can be found in my images - as a gravure - there without any issue...

    I disagree with the "clearly" masturbating comment. The hands in the 35mm one were not defined enough to make that assertion, and the other just showed a woman with her hands covering herself. Emil has posted many images where his bromoil technique has "veiled" certain areas. I see it as a testament to his inking skills, as well as his sensitivity to his models and viewers.

    Yes you have and I have altered my original post by request and there seems to be diverse views about this.

    We all view images in a different way.. I always click on your images because i think you do great work and i will continue to view them because i think you are a very talented artist.. Sexuality will never offend me because we are all human and have it..

    Now I'm glad that I withdrew my earlier comment. I thought Clive was talking about the viewers masturbating, not the subject.

    I believe it is this post you refer to, not mine and I was refering to viewers. Lets not get confused here.

    I don't have a problem with Erotic, pornographic, nude or any of the above. There were one or two images that I have seen recently that did take me by suprise, but I wouldn't necessarily want them removed

    But one thing I will make comment on.... Remove the artistic and creative treatment to the printing and they would have come straight out of Hustler. Now, it is up to you to decide whether that is a bad thing - me personally, I don't necessarily have a problem with that, but I know others that would.
