Thursday Thirteen: Butt is it art or porn?

9 Comments

Sometimes, whether you suffer from mental health problems or not, you need to take a step back and allow yourself time to enjoy your passions.

Whether it’s running bare foot through dew soaked meadows, battling Ganandorf in Twilight Princess, curling up on your sofa with a loin warming work of fiction or sucking down berry flavoured gelati – whatever you love…just do it now!

One of my passions, as mentioned before, is the human posterior. Given I don’t currently have a woman in my life, I’m unable to indulge in my passion for buttock massages so I have to make do with this rather random, somewhat unexpected, Thursday Thirteen post.

Below the fold (given the NSFW content; unless you have an employer that doesn’t mind you looking at artistic nude photographs :p) I present to you thirteen photographs collected around the theme of the human posterior and pose the question: is it art or pornography?

Personally, I consider each and every one of them superb pieces of art, but you may disagree.

Why not take a wee peek and find out?

  1. I could return the question. If I click Like, am I artistic or a pervert? ;)

    I think it is primarily perception. I really enjoy sketching the male and female form, I find many images that I want to sketch, but rarely a suitable image for my blog – since I have some conservative friends who could perceive porn and I would rather not get into pointless arguments or have to waste my time justifying my artistic preferences.

    Some beautiful images here BTW. All “I” see is Art.

    I like this wiki article:

    • I would say you were artistic, but I’m (rather obviously) not as conservative as some people :) But it is an excellent question. I read blog posts from time to time that I’m nervous about clicking ‘like’ over. The posts are excellent but I’m worried about what people may think if they see I’ved like that page. Sometimes I click, sometimes I don’t.

      I’m glad I’m not the only person who sees art in these photos :)

  2. butts hehehe … okay now that I got that out of my system… pictures like that to me are more artistic than pornographic just because it is of someones back side doesn’t mean that its pornographic because they seem to be in good taste where as in porn you see usually has no tact or quality and is shot for the mere purpose of getting someone off.

  3. The seductive lines, the classically alluring poses…to me it’s art. But then, I see art in the way I wash my hair so….

  4. Editors Note: This comment is in response to the post Butt is it Art or Porn III: The Spanking Art Edition. I’m not sure how it ended up here! :)

    Bravo Addy! Thank you very much for posting this in the non-password protected arena. You do have the warning before one clicks on to the further reading that it is not for family. I especially like that it is not password protected because that saves me going through pages and pages of paperwork to find the password I used for that particular site. Passwords are the bane of my existence.

    Yes Addy, they definitely are Art. I thank you for this post for all to read and make their own mind up on the question :Is it Art or porn?

    I wish also to make further comment on and I quote “There’s nothing wrong with a good spanking between consenting adults and anyone who tells you different is obviously a bit of a prat who wouldn’t know awesome super delicious fun if it came up and bit them on the bum!” I agree 100%, with the emphasis on “consenting adults”. Also “You are definitely not evil for your love of spanking. Part of the very DNA, Part of myself”. I agree with all those statements 100%. I do not say that because I agree 100% with what you say on all matters. There is no human that I agree 100% with what they say. I say it because it is also true of myself. It has taken me a very long time to accept that spanking is part of my DNA and an essential, but not only, part of my life. I used to try very strenuously to argue both with myself and others that this was not so. I sincerely thought that there must be something wrong with me for wanting to be spanked, strapped, caned, paddled, cropped, whipped, flogged. Unlike you who likes giving spankings I am wired to love receiving them. The more I tried to deny this fact about myself the more I sank into the mire. Now I am very comfortable with who I am and what I like. True the non-spankos I know would be appalled if they knew what I was into. I just don’t tell them. By the same token if they discovered these interests of mine I would acknowledge them and not be ashamed that they have discovered this fact about me. I don’t seek to password protect this information and as far as I am concerned it is available for any who would seek to find out. Blackmail would never work to intimidate me. If anyone would say “I will tell so and so about this secret thing of yours” I would say go ahead. The most significant people in my life already know.

    I thought you and some of your readers might be interested in the following information. This next weekend, exactly a week from today to be exact, I have been asked by a woman if I would teach her how to beat me at a BDSM Play Party we will be attending. I have most happily agreed and have been giving the matter of how I will teach much thought. We will start off our play session with a hand spanking, after a body rub, followed by various other instruments being used on me. I am very chuffed that this particular person has made this request of me. She is a sex worker and wishes to have skills in this area to aid her in her business. That is fine with me as no sex is allowed at this Play Party venue and that is fine with me.

    • Thank you for your comment. Meadhbh is currently doing cartwheels that someone has commented on, and liked, a post that she put a lot of effort into. You have certainly made her a most happy little bunny! :) I’m also glad you’re in agreement that they are art. I’m staggered by people who look upon drawings of this magnificence and label them as pornography. So much time and effort has gone into creating them that they can only be art.

      I too have struggled with my spanking fetish over the years, a topic I went into at length in my post Fifty Shades of Addy. I think most people who lean this way grapple with their kink. It’s just part and parcel of life, I’m afraid. But sooner or later we must all make the choice as to whether we’re going to let it consume us or embrace it with open arms. I think it’s fantastic that you’ve decided to embrace your love of spanking, regardless of what other people may think. Hopefully I too will make it there at some point in the future.

      As for the password protected posts, you will no doubt be happy to know that I have removed them from the blog. After much pestering from Meadhbh we decided that the passwords were, in effect, an act of self-censorship. And as I abhor censorship I decided to remove them, replacing them with warnings/requests for family members not to read, as I did with this post. So in the future all posts written about this topic will be password free. Which should make it easier for you!

      Good luck, and have fun, with your BDSM play party next week. Sounds awesome!

      And thank you again for the comment (from both Meadhbh and I) you really have made her super happy! :D
