Nudity in art poll
Greetings, fellow art lover. I hope you wouldn't mind answering a few questions. I hope to find out what people think of art, nudity in it, what they consider to be acceptable for display on a site like this that's open for everyone, and what should be kept somewhere else. What do you think of displaying erotic images, and what would be classified as such in your opinion, what you think about sex and or porn, and what is it? The two latter types will not be displayed on this site, reason being that I want to keep this site relatively "child-safe". If such material is displayed, should there be a warning, or should the site support a rating system such as SafeSurf (this site does).

The answers are now gathered automatically, less work for me, and always up to date. I will periodically check and edit if neccessary. The threshold for any censorship will be very high - if the answers make no sense, instigate to crime or attack a person or group etc., they will be removed.

WARNING: Messages are no longer edited before they are displayed. I have no control over what is said. Either do not read the answers, or understand that those are other people's personal views, and try not to be offended. Hopefully, there won't be any need to.

Minimum requirements for acceptable answers: ok/not, sex and age. Also, this is not a guestbook, though I like knowing what kind of people visit, try to keep your answers on topic, nudity in art.
