Do you think the spread of porn imagery has changed the way people perceive nudes in art?
There is a big difference between art and pornography. Pornography has no artistic merit and the focus is uninvolving. It portrays sexual subject matter for the purpose of sexual arousal to provide instant gratification. Unlike pornography, sex in art stirs other emotions and can carry meanings and messages that are often not about sex itself. I do feel that the adult industries, which are now so highly available to any viewer, can numb the perception of intimacy.
