I nice move from nudes would be to perverted art, or sexual, exotic art, not art? Metaphoric? Or just plane vulgar? Is there a difference between nudes and sexualized nudes or porn? Do you have to be naked to be sexual? What can you say through being sexual? Is it political? Or social? Or just dirty?

A good segue would be into live nude bodies. Which can mean many differnt things, dead, naked, nude, vulnerable, striped, controlled, viewed, exposed, sexual, used, mystical, mythical, exotic, on display. What does it say when a woman is nude as a posed to a man or child? And yes many of these images seem to repeat or be very similar to each other. And what is the relationship between the clothed and nude figures? If any? Is it power, statues, Gods and humans? Many of these nude figures are female and most of them are portrayed as Goddess, manly the Goddess Venus.
