I support the difference between a woman being SEXY vs. SLUTTY

I admit, and I'm even proud to say, that I'm a confident, sexy woman, and I have embraced the slight perverted side of me.
Even though I'm only eighteen, I dream of being a pin-up model or something of the like, even just as a hobby someday. I love drawing sexy girls and I love looking at them.
But, there are many girls that give those women a bad reputation.

So many people complain about porn on DA, that it's hard to not feel bad about posing nude or drawing a suggestive picture. This is how I thought of the Sexy vs. Slutty debate.

Sexy women pose in pin-up and fetish pictures for artwork and fun. Some do it as a job, some as a hobby. They have photos that showcase something, whether it be just their bodies and a beautiful expression or hairstyle, or perhaps a costume or prop.
Slutty women are the ones that take pictures with their digital camera in poor lighting, snapping shots of just their girly parts or what-have-you. They're the "camwhores" that pollute this site. These are the women that promote the idea of porn on DA, whether it be intentional or not.
Sexy women are confident, and that shows in their photos. No matter of their skin, size or hair, they feel beautiful, look beautiful, and are expressed artistically though a photographer's lens.
Slutty women are most likely just looking for attention. They might be doing something to please a certain person, or maybe it's just for pageviews. Either way, it's not about art and confidence.

I think sexy, strong women who have enough self esteem to pose in fetish pictures should be praised, not lumped in with the others.

(oh and just so you know, this speech is coming from a lady who supports sexuality and erotica very much, who also believes in following this site's rules. ;D)

Thank you.
I'll get off my soapbox now. :meow:

I support not shaming people over arbitrary definitions of things like physical attractiveness and sexual identity.
But hey, if objectifying other people makes you feel better, maybe you need the little self esteem boost.

You beat me to it.
Beauty: showing your true self OR dressing nice a elegent (more to it of coarse)
Slutty: ganing attention by showing more skin, even at a place where there isn't any boys...? A.K.A my school...
i agree with this stamp, i shall fav
oh, thank you for implying that a woman needs to show off her body to be confident.

There is an monthly article in Cosmo US magazine, called Sexy versus Skanky and I find it very helpful in fanart and in real life as well. :)
*phew* And I thought I was alone. thank you. Must fave or something... but I gotta keep it a secret.

I agree with you but I also feel like some of the women who are "camwhoring" as you say just don't know what they're doing or why they're doing it which I cannot really look down upon. People do dumb things just to feel liked, loved, or wanted and even I'm guilty of that so I can see where that kind of person would be coming from. And even "slutty" women I can't really look down upon because who am I to say she's having too much sex, but it's true that that stuff does not belong on an art website. There's a difference between porn and art, but the line between the two seems to be getting thinner and thinner and more and more people start to have sort of a sexual liberation.
