Yes, kiddies, Male Nudes are on DeviantArt, despite the odd penchant of Admin to delete-at-random should a penis appear even slightly erect! In fact, well endowed penises tend to get deleted as well. Why? I have asked the same question...and answered thus: 1. maybe not-so-well-endowed male "members" of Admin don't want the word to get out that penises exist in super-jumbo-gargantuan-erect-looking sizes. Gawd forbid the female tribe learn this!! -- or perhaps -- 2. If it is erect, he has to be "aroused" and thus makes it pornography. Oh please....folks, not ALL erections are sexual in nature. Men: speak up here! I for one wish to make it known that erect penis images are ART as well...and if the viewer judges their own reaction as "musta been porn, I got a woodie/wet spot..." - then who is to say? I, for one, do a lot of male nudes, very erotic stuff, not one hard-on (well, only one...hehe...they haven't discovered it yet...LOL!), and I do not in my wildest dreams think of MY ART AS PORNOGRAPHY!!!! NO WAY! It is art. It is the beauty I see in my husband's form. It is partially the way I love him, the way I MAKE LOVE TO HIM....

So: what do you think? Should erection imagery really be banned en masse on DA? And what's wrong with the viewer being aroused by viewing nudes, male or female? Sheesh -- we are HUMAN ANIMALS -- we have Gawd-given sex drives -- we respond to visual stimulation -- thank Gawd we respond! And HEY! What about women with HARD NIPPLES???? Huh? Does it mean they are sexually aroused if their nipples are erect? Talk about double standards here...

FOLKS: SEX is good. Showing erotic sensual images of human bodies is good. If the ARTIST creates an image that incorporates the nude form in ANY phase, who are we to judge it as right or wrong? (that is Art v. Porn)....

I agree... thats why I've created a magazine that showcases images of any kind without prejudice of erotic art. If any one would like to contribute..... I would be more than merry to take a look and then see where we can go from there! email javon.MOOREmag[at]Gmail.com if interested!

I couldn't agree with you more. I've long wondered where to draw the line between pornography and art. I've seen pictures in, for instance, MANDATE and PLAYGUY that looked pretty artistic, some of which included erections and some of which did not. And if we look to fiction, there are plenty of works considered literature (rather than pornography) that concentrate largely on the arena of sex. Maybe there should be arbitrary lines drawn that apply both to male and female models that are not allowed to be accessed by minors, just to keep the government out of DA's business. Thanks for bringing this up, no pun intended.

I totally agree with you. I draw nude anime males, and most of the time they have erections. I draw them for the sake of art. Yes, male erections don't just come from arousal, and yes, nipples don't always harden when pleasure is felt (temperature causes it sometimes). If hard female nipples are allowed, then erections should be too. Really, I'd love to post my art of nude men on this site.

Sorry to be late joining in. Erections are definitely not all caused by sexual arousal. They happen any time any where and for reasons unknown. Mine can happen when I am frustrated. Why is that? Not logical, but is it a fact. Other times they just come up. They can last for a few seconds or linger for minutes or sometimes hours.
I believe you are right when you say everyone is different because I doubt this happens the same for all males.

I am so glad you said it. Without erections most of us would not be here!

Erections are treated as taboo almost everywhere and automatically considered pornography. The erect penis is as much a part of the male body as the vagina is part of the female body.

Art is Art. An opinion on a piece of art is only that.......an opinion. Somebody somewhere has refused the male body to be shown in all its beauty just because it is their opinion that it is not appropriate. The sooner we stop making an issue of the erect penis and other basic sexual matters the sooner we will all get over it and wonder what the fuss was all about. For crying out loud, Grow Up!!

Are erect to nipples banned too, because they are a sign that the female may be aroused? Sexual Discrimination needs to be stamped out!! Nonetheless, I suppose society at large is slowly coming to realise that the male body has as much to offer as the female body does, with the emphasis on slowly!

We all must learn to lose our insecurities about the basics of what it is to be human and love us for exactly what we are and not for what society wants us to be!

Take care now.

i've always though that DA's views on the differences b/w their policies on male and female anatomy is biased, that will never change, although my art site of choice did. theres a great gallery for the 18+ crowd thats EXCLUSIVLEY for male themed art in direct response to DA's unfair handling of the pics here.

Females can be doing anything except blatent sex and its fine, males on the other hand are hardly accepted at all, especially if their dick is hanging out. Sorry, but it should be handled like boobs. its there, its a body ornament. get over it XD

I'm sure you know that not being allowed to show erect penises is not exclusive to dA. They can't be shown on any TV show/movie/magazine/art exhibition (there was an exhibition a few years back of male nudes, and any with erect penises had stickers slapped over them) that doesn't explicitly call itself hardcore porn.

Is that right? Hell no! Erect penises are the one thing not allowed - but there are no rules about not showing any part of a woman (true you don't see a lot of images of clitorises around unless you go looking, but I did see some on a documentary about body piercing, so there's clearly no rule against it).

I can't see dA coming around to the idea until the rest of the world does. And I do think it should.
