I totally agree. That pic doesn't sit well with me.

I TOTALLY AGREE!!!

Yeah I thought that too. And then everyone said it seemed so sexual with that pose and yeah, I think that's it. I think maybe cut off at the navel would make a less sexual pic. It's not the female private area I have an issue with. It's the spread eagled nature of the lower half that gets me I think.

Re: Nursing Photo (CONTAINS NUDITY)

I know, I'm in the minority.

I can definitely appreciate this as part of the Art of Motherhood.

What she's doing - nursing - is not sexual. But she is not sexless, she is still a desireable woman and not "just a mother".

In an age where most breastfeeding art focuses exclusively on the mother-child bond, or the "happy glowy sexless mother", it's nice to see one that says "I am not just a boob, and it took sex to create this child". It's almost a representation of the circle of life, and it's definitely tones of the Sacred Mother, who is always desirable, fertile, and nurturing.

Re: Nursing Photo (CONTAINS NUDITY)

I think it's a combination of a TON of things that make that photo look more...wrong(?) than it could. First I think the lighting is kind of stark and not really what you think of when you would take a pic of a nursing mama (like softer light and kinda fuzzy, kwim?). I mean it's not bright in the room but the lighting and bedding seems sort of home-made "video" to me, not that I would know. Second is the spread eagle thing. Yes, I'm happy I can lay on my back and nurse at the same time but I don't like to show my crotch to the world - so I think people with that same viewpoint would find it overly revealing.
I agree with the others - that she looks detatched and her expression is what really started bothering me.
I went back and looked at it again. She just seems disinterested when I look at her face, kwim? Maybe that's it, LOL.

I agree, if at least they had some clothes on and she wasnt posing almost ****agraphically ( sp and is this a wrod? LOL ) it would be a nice picture.

How is she posing ****ographically? I understand she's nude but she's not showing any more then renaissance paintings of Adam and Eve.
