Some of use Daz products in a work environment and having a rather large woman in an almost nude-colored bikini on the home page makes Daz3d.con NSFW!!!

Geez! If showing skin is that important to you, get a hotel room!

You know you can always bookmark a different page if it’s a problem. Not that it’s not offensive to some but it is a rather trivial complaint and to me doesn’t warrant censorship.

hopefully you can find a workaround that suits your workplace.

It’s not a censorship issue. I’m not asking that the image be suppressed.

That’s a large woman, all right.  Clearly she and I shop at the same plus-size outlets.


Maybe large-breasted was meant and a word got lost. :D

I knew going into this that it would become a flame war.

That’s OK, I’m fireproof.

This is a business issue I’m addressing - not censorship or feminism. I buy products for a company.

Most other 3d sites seem to be able to steer clear of the “hey, look at us, we’re hobbiest soft-core pornographers” atmosphere (i.e turbosquid, 3docean, etc.

Indeed, Daz has done so also on their front page - up to this point.

Well, if they ever get around to releasing The Millennium Cow, that would dominate the entire site, home page too!

So howzabout it Daz?  Get rid of all those yucky humans on the home page and put up some decent Cows!!

All in favor - say “MOOOOOO!”

MOO!

Since getting into 3d I’ve noticed a tendency for scantily clad females with big boobies. Why there are no scantily clad men with big ... I guess all of Daz’s customers and potential customers are people who pant after 3d women big boobies in bikini’s.

I’ve taken to going into the forums instead, as you never know what you might find on the front page -some of us do visit this site at work and work would view this to be an inappropriate site because of that image.

The reason that happens is because there is a large silent majority of customers who want it - including professional customers, not just hobbyists.  A look at advertising in general will indicate pretty clearly that the unclad or lightly clad human body is a common motif.  I mostly (not entirely, but mostly) make outfits that are more fully-covering, but I also know that every one of those outfits provokes customer messages asking me how to make them look sexier on the figures. 


If you were paying attention, though, there was a bare-chested guy on the front page as well, and DAZ sells a lot of male content that both covers and reveals the body.  It’s not really fair to say it’s all bikini babes.

As pointed out earlier, if for some strange reason your company has issues with the image on the front page, even though they use DAZ products in the workplace, it takes a second to book mark a different page. I find it odd that in the first post the female was the issue not the guy also.


Yep, my company would view this as inappropriate also, oh wait, i am at work and shouldn’t be surfing the web outside the company network in the first place, LOL.

“hey, look at us, we’re hobbiest soft-core pornographers”

seriously?! we must be looking at different pages since i see no soft-core or pornography.

And this is the main reason why I love your products. wink

Genesis is head & shoulders above “Genesis 2” (or better known as BF2/BM2) and is the FAR superior figure. Why? It doesn’t suffer from the UN-necessary gender split

I believe “large” was meant in terms of the amount of screen space she occupies.

He’s less of a problem.  I know it’s a blatant double standard, but in terms of Safeness For Work, a naked-at-first-glance woman is more likely to get the boss asking awkward questions than a man in boxers.
