    [
    I have thought about doing images much like yourself and have ran into the same thing, as soon as you say mature, or adult themed people always think porn, so it put me off a bit, maybe i should just say to hell with it and do the images I want to do and damn what people think :)

    I agree - though there is one catch.
    Websites like DeviantArt have a nasty habit - like removing those images without much of a comment... or in worst case, even banishing your account.

    What I find weird - they allow and do not bother with all those sloppy photoshots of women spreading their legs wide to grant a view...
    Or even drawn pictures that show women doing some stuff to themselves... no one bothers.

    But as soon as a couple is entwined - no matter how beautifully drawn or photographed (light & shadow plays) - as soon as you see just a "hint" of explicity... it gets banned. If not today, then tomorrow for sure.

    Same with certain Horror or Religious content that shows a bit more blood and torn flesh than the average Art...

    I am still amazed and happy they allowed H.R. Giger's Artwork there... or Artwork similar to his. (RIP Master of Sinister Beauty - he died a few days ago).

    I find that the more money certain pages draw for DA they leave alone, then again its the same anywhere, youtube is the same, small chan and you have a higher chance of them removing videos or giving you a strike, but if your a big chan, they leave you be.

    That's exactly what I meant O_o
    As soon as the word mature or adult content drops (even with explanations) - people jump to a singleword-conclusion "porn".

    Usually I am not an ass - but really... try to read what people truly wrote about - instead of jumping on the train of the common rabble that just jumps to conclusions because of one single stingy word.

    This thread is about how much we show our art - and that might include also some reasons why we only show so and so much of our stuff - and what would be required to change that.

    For me it is a fact, that there is no good quality Portal in the technical style and comfort as DeviantArt for 18+ content, and so I only show 5 % of what I create. And I repeat myself (probably ignored by the "who cries porn" people anyway) 18+ content is not always about sex... there are other adult/mature themes.

    So, no! I am not looking for a Porn Gallery site - because if I were I wouldn't have asked since there are plenty of those out there ;-) simple logic, huh? Even Renderotica has Non-Sexual Stuff, but their gallery mechanics are a nightmare.
