“ Hi Missy,
I have just read a very interesting book: Art As Therapy, by Alain De Botton and John Armstrong. While i don't necessarily agree with everything they say, they do raise some very interesting ideas. In one chapter they argue that the distinction between art and porn is a false one, the result of a cultural hangover from Christian prudishness. They make the point that without that false distinction we might have better erotic art, unlike so much porn which insults our intelligence and makes us feel disappointed and besmirched. I recommend the book to you, and I'd be interested to know your thoughts.
