Erotica is used as an artistic expression, where pornography is more for sexual gratification.

Perhaps you should change it to 'nudity is not porn' ^^; because well the dictionary definition is 'literature or art dealing with sexual love. ' which is well... porn. ALTHOUGH I do believe that nudity isn't porn. The body is nothing to be ashamed of, it's people who decided that something perfectly natural is innapropriate.

The dictionary seems to disagree.

This is right down my alley, I just joined DA and focus on Erotica, I play around with calling it pr0n but lol, it's really not, thanks for this stamp, it's F*ing awesome! (Hope you don't mind, but I'm stealing it and posting it in my journal)

There's a difference between erotica and porn. Erotica is supposed to be more aesthetic in art form while exciting the sexual stimuli in a healthy way. Porn is a little more explicit and tending to excite the viewer sexually.

But you are right though!

Erotica is more like art than porn. Erotic stars are classed as much more artistic, whereas pornstars aren't.

People can get away with a lot of things by labeling it "art"

Porn is short for pornography, which implies photos and usually is just interpreted as sex. as opposed to artistic nudity. Erotica is written material and tells a story of love sex or whatever or it's another way of saying artistic nudity. but mostly it's just written. there's a whole greek or roman mythology thing that goes with that but i don't know of the top of my head. point being porn is stuff like playboy and other magazines where as erotica is written material, in most cases.

I apologize if my reply is quite lengthy, i do that from time to time. =D

Dunno, most of it seems like written porn to me. I'm pretty sure people masturbate on the erotica too, you know? Some people can't get off from porn and they want something... else to get off with, so they go with erotica. That's just my view of it. It pretty much serves the same purpose.

Nice stamp! you should also make one about artistic nudes. There's even too much porn in general here on DA...the line between an "artistic nude" and a porn star has disolved.
