The Horndog to Robot continuum was so named in another discussion here, with the intent of giving a humorous spin to what had become a rather contentious discussion about the degree of engagement of ones' sexuality while photographing the nude. To make a nude that is a successful work of art, neither prurient nor clinical, a balance between the analytical and the erotic impulses needs to be found. Too much of the erotic impulse, and you end up with bad art and good porn. Too little, you end up with a medical textbook illustration.
