"Men may find an isolated photo of a curvy ass, or big breasts , or a big penis to be exciting.But were that image associated with a face the appeal might be lost. Beauty can be partial . Prurient interest may be highly specialized and localized. This is the most difficult issue involving erotica. One man's art is another man's porn....That which doesn't share our own tastes is likely to be perceived as pornographic and that which appeals to us is likely to be given a pass as art."

Glenn O'Brien on Erotica in the new ACNE Paper.

Taste is a dictatorship.
