On Gay Artwork

On Gay Artwork
The staff and I had a meeting a few days ago and the subject of gay artwork, mainly male on male, came up. Now, we've never had an issue about it was presented to us, but we all agreed that if someone did post something on the forum or if they wanted to post something on the main site, we would 100% cool with it. We don't personally look at it, but we do respect the artwork that others have created.

Here's the situation: While we're okay with it being posted up, some of you may not be. And I completely understand if you're not. The question we want to know is if an artist posted such content, would you be okay with it or do you have an objection towards it? Do you feel there should be certain precautions put in place for gay content?

I'm not looking for this to start a flame war, so please be respectful towards your fellow members as we will consider each and every one of you. Thanks.

RE: On Gay Artwork
Well, I'd like to see lesbian stuff but as I understand it you're mean gay male stuff. So, okay.

It's kinda like this: A3D is a 3DX Magazine. Magazines tend to have fairly specific themes and audiences. If you tend to have an audience that wants futa on female, female on female, and male on female stuff then chances are that there probably won't be that many that want to see male on male. It's like how you won't really see male on male if you look at Playboy or Hustler.

I think overall it's a decision "the magazine" needs to make rather than the readers, because the readers will change based on the content but the ones running the show should be the ones that decide the overall direction of their magazine.

With that said, while I don't really think gay male on male stuff should be front page material here, I think it'd be fine for it to be posted over in the Creative Works section. Though, some sort of mentioning of it in the title would probably be respectful to readers.

By my side I respect any kind of 3DX creation ... but I don't like male on male stuff.
I have to admit it could be annoying for me to see this content on the main page Angel

We were primarily discussing gay male stuff, but lesbian stuff would obviously acceptable too (after all that is technically speaking, "gay content" also)

Perhaps a section of the site/forum reserved for exclusively gay content of all types (subject to the same rules) is a way to satisfy all concerned?

RE: On Gay Artwork
I think a section is overboard and would likely be relatively unused and inactive and also that lesbian stuff is generally well received and in high demand here.

Just adding some kind of [Gay] tag or something to a thread in Creative Works would be enough I think. I don't think it'll be highly used anyways.

RE: On Gay Artwork
I have no problem as long as it's labeled as such before I open a thread like Tiffany said.

RE: On Gay Artwork
mostly all of the above, i dont go looking for male on male but i do like creating lots of girl on girl (maybe my own repressed gayness ?). so yes, label, and then label it all for easy sorting & browsing ?

on a more political note:
your questioning just happens as homophobic crowds descend the streets in France ( http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/apr...a-facebook )
everything is politic, even more so is sex.

RE: On Gay Artwork
I'm not bothered really, it's not what I like to see but it's up to you. Has some members already said, it be better if it was labeled saying first before viewing to find out and it may end up in a war with some members. This awesome site already allow Straight, Lesbian, Futanari, Alien/Monster Love (no Beastiality) so why not if people like that kind of thing. I just thought of something maybe a new forum area for that kind of thing so those who doesn't like gay artwork wouldn't go in the area, just an idea Wink

RE: On Gay Artwork
yeah i don't think there's really room for anyone to object these days i mean if you browse porn enough to have found this site in the first place then you probably accidentally see something gay now and then anyway and it must not have stopped you lol so i say post gay on the main page just like you'd post any other porn

i guess what you could do is try to make sure the thumbnail conveys that it's gay (like 2 handsome guys lookin at each other) but without being overtly sexual (like a guy spreading his ass cheeks) and just mention that it's gay in the first sentence of the description and that should stop the few guys who get easily turned off by it from losing their boners at least but really even paying that much mind to it might look silly on a site where the homepage might have like a fuckin giant grotesque ogre doing a teenager in the ass

it's all a matter of perspective, you see

RE: On Gay Artwork
Well, I'm new to this forum, so my opinion doesn't count for much, but It's one more for the vote. I'm not gay (though, somehow, my most notable recuring character on another forum is a "Futa" character. Not sure how that happened. LOL) but I have no problem with gay art work. I may not seek it out, but I'm curtainly not offended when I see it.

I think if your gonna do anything involving art you have to be willing to see and experiance art from artists with very different points of view. Now some people find gay art highly objectionable, and that's thier point of view/preferance, but I really don't see the problem. I suppose the best way to be fare would be to have a section (clearly marked so no one can claim to be offended), but I personally think that any artist who does Top Quality work should be allowed to be honored with a feature on the main site (I guess you'll have to clearly mark that too)

RE: On Gay Artwork
Thanks for your wonderful contribution luxxor

I'm also fine with it but I agree a simple [Gay] tag would be fine as a warning to people who want to avoid it.

RE: On Gay Artwork
I think the general consensus so far is

"we don't have any major objections as long as it is clearly labelled to avoid inadvertently looking at it"

agree, disagree?

Yeah, that's pretty much what I got from all this too. I'm not in to gay stuff as in dude-on-dude action but I do believe that people have the right to their own kinks and preferences.

Sometimes, I make stuff.

RE: On Gay Artwork
While this is not the most politically correct answer to this, I would say that if you want a guy on guy artwork, why not start a site devoted specifically to that. I imagine that there would be quite an audience for it. But it is definitely not why I came to this site.

RE: On Gay Artwork
I think a section "Male on Male" or something to that extent would work better. I hear what Tiffany is saying, however, there could be many artists in that genre with different flavours, BDSM etc...Also, if such artists are looking for feedback from others, it would draw similar interests easier. I, personally, do not favour gay male content among existing threads.

Yep, tags. Tags for everything, so the site is more easy to navigate.

RE: On Gay Artwork
This is definitely an interesting topic, and I'm pretty surprised by the responses. I really expected a lot of, "yeah sure, why not?" sort of replies.

Personally, I have no problem with Affect3D including guy on guy materials. I won't be saving it to my hard drive, but I'll probably glance at the artist's techniques and characters and then move on to something else.

The tag I'd more appreciate seeing than a 'gay' tag is an 'explicit' tag, ideally with an explanation. I don't want to see explicit gay 3dx, but I'd also appreciate some warning before opening a torture pic or violent rape scene. Not that we currently have a lot of that here, but in my book, it deserves some warning labels.

The more I think about it and type about it, the more I like the idea of creating tagging standards, not to set one group apart, but to identify the site's content for its users. Then again, I know that's a lot of work for somebody out there.

RE: On Gay Artwork
If gay artwork was tagged, every other genre of image would have to be tagged also, otherwise it could be considered descriminatory
