Porn is one thing, nudity is another. There is a huge distinction. Nudity alone isn’t inherently sexual. The body is neutral. It isn’t until you start to judge it, are attracted to it, desire it, have a sexual drive towards it that you might perceive it that way. Images of people engaging in intercourse, other sexual acts, or with intentions to arouse, would be pornographic, but that can even happen when they are more or less dressed. When you see a nude body you shouldn’t automatically think “porn.” This perception of nudity is part of the problem. That needs to change. So it should be less about nudity and more about how to police pornography on the platform.

Would you consider this pornography? You tell it is art based on the context it is within can you not? https://www.instagram.com/p/BqlfFiLg4fq/

Here are some more possible examples. How would you treat these? On Vine, they were allowed, some with a sensitive content message and some without.

Sexy erotic art or pornographic? No nudity, but very erotic. No sensitive content message - https://vine.co/v/id3FbWvPQJT

This one has nudity but strong in the arts, not pornographic, but got sensitive content message - https://vine.co/v/idIiMaI7pW3

Pornographic rabbits? Allowed. - https://vine.co/v/i5juVJMewiq

Nude mannequins - got sensitive content message https://vine.co/v/ih90VnlOrLM

Other social media apps and websites like Twitter and Tumblr have nsfw content on them with little to no issue. I don’t see much of a reason this should be any different. If there were a strict no-nudity policy, I wouldn’t be crying over it, but it would hinder a lot of different types of art or creativity. Yes, kids would be able to lie about their age to see stuff they shouldn’t, but the same goes for anyplace on the internet and really, it’s up to the parents to make sure they’re only seeing the things they should.

I mean, are people going to be searching for that stuff tho? Sure some will, but that’s more like the weird part of YouTube. It’s there, but you’ve gotta go searching for it.

byte is more family friendly than the other apps and parents would complain that their children look at that so there will most likely be a NSFW feature on the app.
