Porn or Art?

This is a question that really is fun, isn’t it?

It allows you to look at porn all you want: If you are in the exalted position of “Censor”. and who, besides yourself is qualified to make such an important choice?

So, give your self the benefit of being a valued member of the 21st century censor league.

Over at current.com there is a fun debate on exactly that question: is it art or porn? My goodness, what a fun way to waste your mental energy: One good respondent said “if it makes you rub your chin, it is art, but if it makes you rub your crotch, it is porn” Don’t you love the simplicity of that razor? But if true art is supposed to make you feel, really feel those strong life urges, good or bad, then if it is truly really great erotic art, then you must want to rub your crotch.

But if we really want to enter the realm of ridiculousness in our insane society, let us consider the images of those classical “pissing cherub” fountains. With the hysteria of child porn it is almost impossible to find a picture of one of these on the internet. On the internet! All I could find was this G-Rated cherub with an icy grip on an unfortunate bird.

A tradition that is thousands of years old has been nearly wiped out of existance: and all the artists, along with the aristocrats, clergy and popes that commissioned those fountains would be banished to medium security “correctional facilities.”

Wow, all you guys out there. thank you for your intolerance and hypocrisy, It makes a minor demon like Beelzebub weep with pride that you are doing such effective work for the forces of darkness.
