"My feminist mother used to come into my room and joke whether I would grow up to be a whore or an artist. She was exactly right!" --Annie Sprinkle

We would like you to consider the following for each image:
Is this pornography or art?
Why do you give the answer that you do?
Who are these images meant for?
What kinds of representations do you see?
Are these images offensive to you, or could they be to anyone else?

If you cannot control how people view images, how can you say the image you may produce of yourself is porn or not. If it's not porn to you, but porn to others, who is in control of naming it?
