We live in a society where a mainstream movie about people murdering each other on the street is one of this weeks top grossing films . its a vile and disturbing film yet it is being openly advertised on tv. yet we are taught that porn is dirty and shameful. some porn is art. as long as those involved are consenting adults it is fine with me.

Further to my previous comment at the outset of this section on porn as art, that same movie franchise I was referring to a few years back is still active today in 2021 making yet another in a series of mainstream movies where sadistic murder and mayhem are openly marketed to anyone over 18 and worse still openly advertised on mainstream TV without so much as a whimper on the part of our moral guardians. Meanwhile adult erotica and porn, both gay and str8 are still seen as something shameful and furtive. I will simply NEVER understand how our society can view the portrayal of sex as something undersirable while extreme violence, be it in movies such or in so called sports like MMA etc is essentially completely accepted by the majority of people.

Well, Brazil had a Porn Art movement. Also pornochanchadas, or sex comedies where the sex is real, but not necessarily arousing. But you can really go as far back as Impressionism to find frankly erotic paintings considered art in the modern era.
