I have no idea how to create a new item on your forum
You referred to this picture :thumb333143434: as Erotic which surprised me.
I connect with the picture at an emotional level and find it very appealing but not at all erotic. For me, erotic has to do with making love between a husband and wife and the story of this captured in different ways would be erotic for me. It may or may not be nude and may or may not be explicit.
There is nothing in this image that says Sex to me.
Now I will admit that I find her attractive and if single would be interested in pursuing her as a potential wife but if that is the definition of erotic then there is a lot more erotic art out there then I think most people realise.
I am intrigue to know how other people view the image; Erotic or not?
I do see some of your comments in the FORUM, so I'm assuming you figured out how to comment? Just click on the FORUM itself, and there you are!
We've been discussing the term "erotic" to some degree in the FORUM. I realize that everyone has their own definition of the term, just as they do for "pornography." The dictionary and the Supreme Court's definitions just don't seem to cut it!
Yes, I do see this image as both sensual and erotic, and I personally make no big distinction between the two. I don't feel sensuality is wrong, nor do I feel erotica is wrong. In fact, I think erotica has a very healthy place in our society, especially for tired marriages! I feel this image speaks a lot of things, but there is no way I could delude myself (and that's not to say that you are!) into thinking that it doesn't create a sexual desire in me, along with the beautiful image that it is. But again, I feel that that's totally normal... the very way we are hardwired. It's what we DO with the myriad of temptations that are inevitably thrown our way that makes the difference!
I think your views of marriage are right on, no matter what semantics we use.
Just as a side note, for me personally, there is no real place for porn, as it leaves me empty and wanting of something with more essence. That's not to say that I judge anyone else for their personal feelings toward it.
