I partake in erotic photography and agree about the porn issue. There's a difference between porn and art. Hopefully, anyone that looks at my photos would recognize the art involved rather than blindly calling it "porn".
Artistic expression is becoming less and less restricted as the years go by. And while a fetish may not necessarily count as art, the artist is expressing his or her own passion by breaking societal norms. Not saying that I enjoy a lot of these free-spirited exploits, but everyone has their own interests. As individuals, we have a choice of whether or not to look at these pieces. If they're deemed not worthy of your attention just look the other way. It is not as if these people are personally spamming you with junk. There are others among the community who share their interests and so, they share it publicly for those people specifically.
In short, no one can appeal to everybody. Botticelli bought into the bonfire because he was manipulated to think his work was sinful and now we don't have a lot of his works anymore. Not saying that these people are artistic masters or anything, just that they are entitled to post freely. And that one man's trash may be another's treasure.

It's annoying, but eh, I don't even check out the front page anymore :/ I reported one disturbing pr0n pic a while ago, only to get a reply pretty much along the lines of it not being offensive enough to meet criteria or some bullcrap, when it obviously was rightly reported for being inappropriate. Internet aside, this is an art site, and crap like that doesn't belong here IMO. :-/
Sorry to bust your little bubble, but this is an issue that has been said for years (and yes, I did some forum searching). And I never said that the OP had no right to complain about the said issue; I was just saying that it has been mentioned lots of times, before.
Maybe you should chill out in that corner over there for a while.
I would've said it about anyone and to anyone. Quite frankly, pricks that run around shouting "DEAD HORSE, GTFO" are just retards. Yeah, no shit it's been said before. Don't have anything new to contribute, then how hard is it just to shut up? =/ No one CARES what you think or if the same thing has happened before.
" Quite frankly, pricks that run around shouting "DEAD HORSE, GTFO" are just retards."<?i>
...You're joking, right?
Those people who say things like that have heard the said issue lots of times before. I mean, you'd have to be some kind of idiot to complain about things you don't know anything about, right?
" Don't have anything new to contribute, then how hard is it just to shut up?"<?i>
Simply by using the search bar to check to see if the said issue has been said lots of times before (and this one is a top 3 common complaint)? And let us not forget about the professional use of search engine Google.
Your username has it about right, because you are so adorable when you're so dense and stupid.
Well, nerves in the feet and in the genitals supposedly communicate with the same area of the brain. Of course, that only explains people who like to have their feet messed with. [link] Cracked.com reports that foot fetishes become more common in times when STD's are a concern, so maybe the idea is that they provide lots of nice little crevices to lick (complete with a strong and seemingly unpleasant smell, like a woman's genitalia) if genitals are diseased and off-limits.
So yeah . . . maybe there's an explanation somewhere.
