I've been here on DA for around 5 1/2 years now, and for the first 4 years I really didn't even use it. I posted some sketches and seemed like nobody was paying attention...
But that's quite all right. I'm not at all externally focused and I know that what others think (especially on the internet, on social networking sites) have absolutely no effect on what I choose to do or how I choose to do it. So you may ask, "why are you even on here?", and that is a good question. The reason I post what I do is a clear signal to the "universe" (for the lack of a better term) that this is what I have chosen to do. It's almost irrelevant what my viewers think of what I am doing because I'm not doing it for them. But that makes me sound unfriendly.. If you like it, good. If you don't like it, good. If you get rude or obnoxious or hypocritical, well that's annoying a little bit
So during this last 12 to 15 months I've been posting nude photos and my views have gone from 7000 to 110000. The categories don't let me choose just "nude", it makes me choose "artistic nude", but whether it's artistic or not in somebody's idea of categories does not matter even a little bit. But to some of my visitors that seems to be an issue. I also get a lot of "this is porn". And that is really what I'd like to talk about.
I think there is probably a clear indication when something is definitely porn; penetration, oral, erections, insertions, dildos, etc. Also maybe the fact that they are on commercial pay sites promoting their content as porn, or even the free sites which exist to give samples that drive paying customers. DA is clearly not one of those places, so if the photos comply with DA policies against porn, it's a little more difficult (it seems for some) to distinguish what is what. I've seen others discuss this topic and some will point to examples and make references, but let me make this simple for you.
You live in a world of subjective reality. If you think it's porn, you are right. If you think it's art, you are right.
For example, when most of us look at cute little 5-year old children, we see kids; noisy dirty energetic lovable kids. When a pedophile looks at the same kids, he may see sexual objects. In his reality, he is right, regardless of what the rest of us think. And you won't convince him otherwise.
So, for you sexually frustrated porn searchers coming here filling up your spank-bank, please stop coming to my page with your penis in your hand and we can keep my page porn-free!!
