I just faved another pic of yours but this one looks like it came from a cheap porn site. It's repelling to me. What's your purpose? I think it's not art.

Porn is meant to spark erotic emotions. I believe those who think stuff like this is like -cheap porn- to lack both imagination and complete understanding of art. 
Ideas of art go two ways. Ones that don't move you, or the ones that do. This just happens to move you, 'uncomfortably,' is all, while someone like me will find it a cute similarity to some events. Sometimes the things women do tend to make guys shy, and a teddy is a good replacement for that, 'character.' Some of us will even find it comical due to relating, be it either side of the story the image gives us.

Art is something that should always take a bit of dedication regardless, and the artist/model does just that. She gives an image that not every woman would be comfortably doing while sharing a light concept of experience, with a bit of humor. While I am sure there are freaks who can be, 'erotically sparked,' by anything, but since your eyes may be only narrowing on the body part of the image it may also narrow your mind on what else is going on to see anything else but what your mind has already written off as porn, of something you may even feel ashamed for looking at.    No pun intended, this is just a cheeky piece that a model dared to do while making light of something that is also a risque topic.

Orrr, everyone has their own opinion and mine is like this. I don't lack imagination or anything, thank you very much :)

This "moves me uncomfortably" as much as garbage does, thank you very much :)

Oh you're giving me art lessons? Thank you very much. Lol.

Do you think calling someone you've never talked to narrow minded, narrow eyed, lacking imagination, all in one text is normal? Thank you very much.

Of course I would call someone who calls anything involving the human body posed like this, 'porn,' narrow minded. =) The art world isn't just pretty faces and sailor moon.

How do you know I call anything involving the human body posed like this porn? News: I don't. News 2: You are prejudiced about people.  I faved other pics of this woman, for example this: which involves exactly this human body posing naked.

And don't insult my art likes in a conversation about another piece. Are you a pervert? Lol. You check my profile, find out what I like, then insult it. That's sick. If I were a shrink, I would be really interested in you!

Nothing wrong with trying to figure out where you're coming from. as to why you'd go so far as to insult an artist rather than give proper critique. It's baffling honestly. :)
I'm no photographer so I would not be able to give detailed critique in areas of choice in lighting, camera used or what not, but I can in fact see this as art just as anything else. 
I have no prejudice other than to ignorance. If this piece offends you; it is still art, you are not forced to respond, or like it. If you do respond and insult it... it'd be better if you gave factual critique rather than a childish response... :)

My response was not childish or anything. I said what I thought. What's childish is you checking out people's profiles and attacking them. Ok? And generalizing one thing they do to make a whole new person out of them in your head.

Please don't appear in my comments again v_v It's so disappointing when it turns out to be you.

It is childish. You do not have to post an insult on an artist's post with lacking proper criticism when saying something is not proper art. 
And no worries. I don't do not ever follow those who do not seek to improve themselves. :)
