This was posted in several pipe groups on facebook and I wondered what you guys/gals opinion is on this.
Do you consider this to be porn or just art similar to Michelangelo's David?
Personally, I find it erotic but not pornographic. I wonder if the reaction has more to do with the fact the lady is smoking a pipe than her revealing clothing.
Here's the LINK.
BTW, the link takes you to a story about the art. You have to click another link in the story to see the full image so this link is safe for work.

I'm not offended but the thought of smoking with one's pants undone does present a potential "Ouch" moment. A lesson for young one's- don't hold burning embers a foot above your junk.

It's the public region. I figured the woman smoking a man's pipe would rustle more jimmies than a thin, well maintained strip of hair. Personally, I dig it. Looks like something my grandpa would've hung up in his garage.
The things people get upset over. Don't like it? Don't look at it!

Once again, something was banned/restricted/removed because of the need to "protect the kids." They're worried that boys are going to stand around and ogle the artwork or some kid is going to discover that the painting makes something funny happen in his shorts. The painting is hott. @voorhees, I saved a copy as well.

I would say it's provocative, but certainly not pornographic.
The gallery issued this statement:

"As an educational arts charity, the federation has a responsibility to its trustees and to the children and vulnerable adults who use its galleries and learning centre. After a number of complaints regarding the depiction of the subject and taking account of its location en route for children to our learning centre, we requested the painting was removed."
As a "vulnerable adult" myself, I'm glad the gallery decided to save me from myself so I wouldn't embarassingly ejaculate in public upon sight of such a stimulating image!
I've seen erotic meerschaums that are truly pornographic,

and these images are not safe for work!

Lmao at those meers...
No, it isn't pornographic, there is a full beard covering anything truly obscene... more like a modern take on old timey pinups.

To be honest, I'm just glad to see some grass on the field, I'm so damn sick of the Brazilian look. I prefer my women to look like women, not pre-pubescent girls!

Nothing pornographic there, it is a shame that someone even took the time to label it porn, what's next repaint the Sistine Chapel?

As a woman I can tell you this couldn't be further from porn! To me this is no different than a woman breast feeding in public. It is the people who are complaining that have the problem.....not the rest of us. I bet most people didn't even notice the pubes before some prude pointed them out. And when it comes to that WHO really sees sex everywhere?
My 4 year old daugther just walked by and said "look Mom, that lady is smoking a pipe! But she really needs to pull her pants up and do a better job dressing herself." :lol:

I don't find that pic pornographic at all. I think a woman smoking a pipe to be sexy. Do you think this pic is pornographic?

This is my oldest daughter.

scottie, thanks.
apatim, she smokes a hookah on occasion but is not a pipe smoker. She was doing a photo shoot one day and I had a pipe with me so I had her take a picture with my pipe. That lead to Kevin using her for one of his pipe babes.

First and foremost, the human body is a thing of beauty. I've never understood a society that can watch action movies but freaks our about a nipple. Ridiculous for a gallery to react that way about a piece of art. Good art causes discussion, thought, feelings or some combination thereof.
