Towards An Objective Classificatio of SFW, NSFW and the Many Shades of Gray Between

Before we get started, we're NOT trying to rewrite the sticky or impose our ideas of what should or shouldn't get posted in any thread. You're going to do what you want anyway (this is 4Chan after all) and we're probably going to get roasted for even posting this, but if fear of getting flamed prevented us from posting, we wouldn't last very long on this or any board here.

Anyhow, having said that, we notice there's a lot of controversy and disagreement concerning pictures of women and what should or shouldn't get posted or what constitutes "SFW, "NSFW," etc., and what is or isn't "tasteful" In all humility, we humbly offer our own opinion (which you're free to ignore and probably will).

It's all very subjective (evil's in the hole of the behinder) and one person's art is another person's porn, but we offer the following thoughts to objectively suggest some discreet categories.

We suggest there are several categories of images, especially of females:

1. NSFW - The Rules posted on the home board state "Please keep adult-oriented pictures and the likes off of this (/wg/) board." Hard-core porn and extremely explicit photos are generally not well received and shouldn't be posted here - try /s/, /hr/, or /hc/ if you want to share that stuff. There's nothing wrong with it, /wg/ is just not the place.

Not that nudity should be banned here altogether. We'd be banned for life if that was the case. In threads clearly marked "NSFW," we propose that it should be okay to show full-frontal male and female nudity, but not to depict explicit sexual activity, insertions, or extreme closeups of genitalia. There are other boards for that. But there should be threads for those who want to spice up their private, non-work screens with large-format pictures of fully naked women (or men). We're thinking here of a lot of the pictures that run on sites like FemJoy, Hegre, Suicide Girls, etc.

Goddammit - comment "too long." We have to pick this up in a follow-up post.
