What first shocked me when looking on amateur modeling sites were the hypocrit talks (both photographers and models hiding systematically beind that artistic cover to deal with nudity and rejecting pornography and “x” kind of photography) and how things were codified (artistic nude means posing so that you hide the most intimate spot, whereas erotic kind of photos would mean posing so that the intimate spot is well revealed). This makes no sense!
Interesting comment.

Looking at model sites you get a feeling for cultural norms. Girls who like being photographed are more often than not OK with topless or "artistic nudity".

I think there's a considerable difference between sexual content and nudity, lots of people are happy enough to get naked, but aren't going to masturbate for the camera.

But these lines change all the time. While I find everything out of their mouths a bit of brain damage, Lena Dunham and her Girls have moved the line on how many women see sexual content.
