Male and Female Nudity in ASCII Art

I’m not sure where to even begin: male nudity, nudity in art, censorship or what is nudity versus an illustrated form of nudity?

I wrote a post for a network of blogs, two posts actually. Before I began I checked with the network because I did not want to put time into creating an article they would not publish. Seems pretty logical to me. I got the ok. But, they changed their mind right after I put up the articles I had written. The illustrations showed too much and one of the ad links (which were from Amazon) were too pornographic.

Do you know… the most interesting thing at that point was the huge difference in traffic between the post for Naked Ladies in ASCII Art and the post for Naked Men in ASCII Art. Naked men were getting triple the traffic, even in the half hour the posts were actually visible online.

Anyway, I removed links, took down nearly every image from my original post. Not one nipple was showing, on either sex. But that was still not enough. The posts were again suspended for content. So, I removed both of them.

I wrote about nudity in ASCII art on one of my own blogs. Then I added most of the nude/ naked men, women and couples in ASCII art to several posts on my ASCII art site. I did choose not to add a few which were over board for me. There is a line between art and pornography. Even when the art is in text versus a full colour image.

The other interesting thing about this was the idea of how much to show. Not when it comes to body parts like nipples, breasts, penis, butt, etc. But the idea of the image itself. How close do you feel to pornography or adult content when you see someone type  (@)(@) ? What are your standards?

Consider the age thing too. This site runs an adult notification, so does my own adult site. None of the other sites I posted to use an adult warning for content. There is no 18 or over suggestion. So, don’t jump on the bandwagon just because you’re traditionally against censorship.

I don’t disagree with the site for not posting my articles. That was their choice. I do feel annoyed with the time I spent on the articles and then revising the articles to try to suit them when all along it seemed anything the least adult was not going to be published. I would have liked to know that from the start so I could use my time differently.

Anyway, the posts are up. I’m still watching the traffic to compare the female to male viewings. Ironic that there was far more ASCII art created of female nudes and yet it seems to still be the male nudes which are getting the attention of people who want to view the art. I think women want to look at nude men, but it’s men who still make most of the art of nude women.

What’s Up with ASCII Art Nudes?
