I've been a relatively active artist in this community for a while now, and I've been moderately selective about who I accept work from.
However, I really feel quite clueless when it comes down to it, and it concerns me.
I would like this thread to generate modest and mature discussion regarding AB/DL art. I am aware this thread has been discussed before, but I did not feel that thread really answered any questions. I would like this thread to do that, if possible, specifically so that the information in this thread can be referenced later or directed to the Wiki.
I would like to address two questions:
1) What, exactly, can make AB/DL art pornographic or illegal? On a side note, if it is pornographic, why have none of the artists been arrested?
2) Even if this art is not pornographic in nature, is it legal for a minor to request and receive such art?
I welcome any discussion that can be provided, but I would please request that it be kept mature and honest. I am sure there are a lot of artists on this forum who will want to learn about what we will be discussing in this thread.
Anyway, I thank you for your contributions. I have to go, but I'll post more in the next few hours.
