It’s not pornographic if it’s at the art museum…

Kali and Shiva
At the Walters

When exploring Asian art with your teenager, you might want to be prepared to come around the corner and be faced with something like Kali and Shiva…

  1. I was thinking the same thing when I went to the museum the other day. There were all these pictures of women topless and men bottomless, and I was wondering, where is the line between art and pornography?!

  2. @AshaB – I have to admit, this might have caused more of a raised eyebrow were my munchkin younger… However, she was just a few weeks shy of her 16th birthday on this trip, so no big deal really. I’ve never been one to shy away from discussing sexuality, and nudes, for the most part, don’t offend either.

    For a real taste of sexuality in art, ancient Greco-Roman stuff is a wealth of fun.

  3. “Art” and “erotica” are when you LIKE IT… “porn” is when you don’t… just like the old saying, “It’s only sexual harassment if you don’t like it”

Whatcha got to say?
