What makes “tasteful” erotica versus “distasteful” erotica in photography or art?
Post contains nudity:
Helmut Newton is good.
Erotica is “distasteful” when it is actually the sexual act (penetration, coitus).
What’s the purpose of erotica?
To stimulate sexual desire towards your partner in order to impregnate them.
At what point is a photo or art work “lewd”?
An interesting experiment:
If you select a photo which arouses you then you Gaussian blur it… at what point does it still arouse you or doesn’t?
This is me trying to fool Google AI:
Nude photos I don’t consider erotic
These photos don’t stimulate me:
But this non nude photo I find very erotic and stimulating:
Apparently this is not an “adult” photo, but it is “racy”:
Is it because of the arched back and breasts?
The look … the expectancy of coitus?
Us men desire a sexual partner who we consider fertile for offspring. This is why the attraction to youthful women.
Also an interesting point:
It seems for us men, it ain’t about a woman with massive breasts, but rather having perky, supple breasts in which the nipples point upwards. This is apparently a sign of youthfulness and fertility in women.
I wonder if this notion of a woman with insanely huge breasts (artificial augmentation) is socialization that nature.
