Repost: This is Porn

I'm a busy bee today. Between fall decorating,family matters and writing a bit of steamy vampire porn I haven't had much time for blogging. I feel bad that the Halloween pics I promised to post are sitting on my hard drive. But a question Mitzibel put to me in the last post reminded me of my all-time favorite post, which I am reposting today in lieu of new material. The first time I put it up, it caused a ruckus that resulted in 157 comments. I'm not expecting that today; this time around it's more for amusement than debate purposes. But feel free to comment anyway if you want.

This is porn. To some people, anyway. To me it's just a tasteful nude. In fact, that's how I found it, by doing a Google search for "tasteful nude." But to some people it's still porn. Because the subject's naked. But I don't think so.

Now this picture is a bit more pornographic, which is why I'm linking to it rather than actually showing it. It's not really nasty porn. It's more soft porn. But most people would define it as mildly pornographic, because it's more gratuitous than artsy.

This picture...well, I think most people would define this as porn owing to the full frontal nudity.

This one is questionable. It's a beaver shot - and a big nasty one. But still, it really depends on what turns you on.

This one is way pornographic. Don't click on it.

But it's amazing what some people consider pornographic, especially the True Christians ™ posting over at Vox Popoli. Most of Vox's readers come to him via a right wing site popular with True Christians ™.

Gene is a True Christian ™. Gene worries about my soul because I write erotica. She's vexed by it. Gene hates pornography, but she loves to talk about it, and brings it up even when I don't. Gene apparently thinks about pornography. A lot. Gene thinks this is an example of pornography:




Gene also likes to quote people who tell her how she should think about things. Here's what she says another True Christian ™ told her to think about the Michelangelo's David and other Evil Art Forms:

Ravi Zacharias said that he reconsidered the role of nudity in art when he heard the story of student Michelangelo being asked why he painted nudes. “Michelangelo replied that he wanted to see people as God sees them. His instructor then said, ‘But you are not God.’Zacharias is a great speaker if you ever get the chance to hear him. ...With desensitizing people with porn or violence through media and the arts, one can mistakenly underestimate the tragedy of the loss of wonder. "

Bone Head (yes, that's what he calls himself) is also a True Christian ™. Here's what he thinks this is an example of pornography:



Yes, that's right. You're looking at the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. But when Bone Head looks at it, he doesn't just see porn, but gay porn. That's because he read somewhere that Michelangelo liked naked men.

So to True Christians ™ like Gene and Bone Head, taking your kids to the Sistine Chapel or to an art museum is the same thing as taking them to a peep show.

Gene and Bone Head think David and the Sistine Chapel are pornography. Smut. Filth.

Gene and I have had some interesting exchanges on race that I won't rehash. Let's just say that Gene had some unpleasant experiences in her childhood that have left her with a bit of a mistrust for people who don't look like her.

Gene's like a lot of True Christians ™ in that regard. They long for the good old days, when it was acceptable for True Christians ™ to Do Their Thing, which was often lynching people who didn't look like them or running about condemning people in God's name.

Sexual images don't excite True Christians ™, at least not in any way that they will admit. But I'd be willing to be that pictures of lynchings or people carrying sings proclaiming God's hate makes their hearts beat faster and sends the blood rushing to their naughty parts.

It doesn't do it for me, though. Sanctimonious hate is a turnoff to me. I just can't get into that kind of filth. But then again, I guess that's because I'm not a True Christian ™.

I like that post Morgan....a lot and I'm new to your site so I haven't seen it before but all that hatred is becoming once again a really big issue and we are supposed to have progressed. The world is a funny place!

I agree with the links for the first two pics on this site but I wouldn't have a single problem posting them on The Gutter Press, which is of course labelled NSFW. The 4th one I wouldn't post on the Gutter, but that's not to say it isn't quite a nice, tasteful picture.
As for the third one well Morgan I'm shocked!!

EBEZP said...

In fact how about I post those two pics to prove it!!

Morgan said...

Post away, my friend. I have no problem with blogs like yours and Ice that post pictures like those. I personally don't post them on my site because I poat a lot of family stuff and don't think it would mix well. That said, I have another blog "Pen and Wench" that I have yet to activate. I alway thought it would be fun to do a private erotica blog with daily "quickies" for readers.
It would be separate from the Token Hippie, much like Ice Two is separate from her main blog.
So what do you think? Should I do it? It would be for subscribers only.

Morgan said...

Oh, and the only problem I had with the fourth picture in my post were the shoes. Those platforms were awful!! *grin*

Andrea said...

Vampire porn? Damn, woman. Hook me up. Seriously, email me, let me know how I can partake of whatever devilish scenarios you've thought up.

Andrea said...

Ack, we were commenting at the same time.

Yes, please do indulge your horny readers:) Sign me up.

EBEZP said...

Agree with you about the shoes in #4!!

I will post on the Gutter those two because like you I wouldn't post them on Wilko News that's not right is it? Though I also have to say if I was ever lucky enough to actually take photos like that they would go on the photoblog!!

Oh send me an invite to your site when you are up and running on it, sounds fun!!

mitzibel said...

Yes, madame, your filthy ideas intrigue me, and I would definately like to subscribe to your newsletter ;)

laughingwolf said...

agreed on the platforms... UGGlee! :P

of course, i'd want to be invited to your 'pen & wench' site

and no, none of the pics [linked or otherwise] are 'porn' in my eyes... 'tasteless' is another matter, for #4

any 'sex' with animals or children is true porn, and i'd report ANYone involved in the latter

Morgan said...

Amen and amen, wuff.
Animals and kids are off-limits.
I've always liked the old saying, "If it turns you on it's pornographic; if it turns me on it's erotic." Ha!

laughingwolf said...

love that saw, hon ;) lol

Jana said...

Hatred bad, ugly shoes-worse.
Liked the beaver though, love them hairy bucktoothed types - yummay!
Sign me up too, love to come read some of your vampire porn, had visions of George Hamilton for a sec...

Ice said...

Gawd, some people have serious problems with nudity, eh?
