Isn't it weird how you can publish photos of naked adult women and then end up with questions about pedophiles?
That's the way it is. Some people seem to think such photos are a breeding
ground for pedophiles. From that point of view I can understand why some people are so strongly against it. I've been asked the following question since I first started to publish erotic photos which is why I included it in my FAQs on FairTradeNudes.com:

Will erotica users not get addicted and always want something more extreme? What about the guy who started with Playboy and ended up a pedophile?

Yes, this story went around the world for sure. Apparently this guy started as a teenager watching the underwear section from a mail order catalog to masturbate. Suddenly he needed something “harder” and he turned to Playboy and Penthouse. But after a while he again needed something “harder”. That’s when he got into hardcore porn. There too, he started with normal mainstream pornography, but he’s desire for something more “extreme” took him to anal and gangbang. He also felt the urge to find younger and younger porn actresses, until finally only child pornography good give him satisfaction. The story ends here. That’s the story this guy told the police and the media when he was arrested for the possession of child pornography.
Sexual abuse of children is very severe. It leaves them scared for the rest of their lives. As a society it is our responsibility to protect every child from abuse. So what can we learn from this story? To me it sounds like this unfortunate man was a pedophile right from the start but he needed years to find it out and admit it to himself. If these were the normal stages every porn user will eventually go through we would almost have a billion pedophiles by now. Most porn users are not asking for something more extreme every time they come back, it seems they come back for more of the same. That’s the story that went not around the world. Children rely not only on our protection but also on our ability to not panic for no good reason. I fear we will do them more harm by leading them to think behind every corner could be a pedophile waiting for them. What about learning to trust other people? And what when our children find out that we’ve been lying to them and there are not nearly as many pedophiles as we told them?

But what should I tell my children?
Tell them to be afraid of everyone who’s a little bit different.

They should castrate (cut 'it' off) rapiests and child molesters, every single one then true justice is served. Pornograhy's dead anyway.

I have to second both ouch662101 and Feronox in their views.
Wish we could teach those who try to v
ilify this art form to see the beauty, just like a sun rise, a red rose or waves lapping the sea shore!
Great art Stefan!
Thanks to you and your models.

I love the way this shot brings a different image to the same model due to the lighting and posture. Keep up the good work and critics of some nature, do like to cast these art in a negative light. To prove a phenomenon there are convinced upon, they do like to boost about it by showing and considered a narrow perspective. Thus, such people are no different than a tyrant, that is set out to follow his/her own ways.

This is just my 2 cents, and my perspective is probably not the norm, but I really don’t consider what you do to be “porn” to me it is art. You take a camera, lights, a setting, and a subject and reveal something truly beautiful. Some of the pictures push into suggestive sexuality, but “porn”? Not from my point of view. Your photos tend to not invoke libidinous thoughts so much as amazement. I find the female form to be something rather perfect, beautiful, and graceful. I like your photography because it brings out into the world how I see things in my mind. The angle, the symmetry, the beauty, talent…even when you shoot non-living things, you do the same thing. I have been an admirer of your for years because you bring the art to a new and wonderful level.  I find it most sad that someone cannot see the beauty that you create. If you had carved these same women in the same positions out of alabaster and placed them upon a pedestal, I suspect that these same critics would show far more respect to the craft. Hmmm…you don’t carve by any chance do you?

"A little bit different" wrong thing altogether. Should be saying be afraid of the stranger that wants a cuddle and has to have a picture in your new clothes... those are the people you should teach your kids about. "A little bit different" could mean anything to anyone... The Jews in Nazi Germany were a little bit different and so were the Tutsi's!

Telling children to be afraid of every one who is a bit different is a horrible message to send. 
 
 Teaching a child to live under the the heavy burden of perpetual fear of anyone is not only damaging to their psychological development,  but it is an utterly flawed way to program your child's psyche. Fear itself is anyone's truest enemy.
Historically, some of the most infamous violent criminals have been charismatic, cunning, superficially normal, attractive, etc.. People in which that society erroneously and generally considers as more trustworthy.
Everyone is on the same level in reality. We're all just super-intelligent mammals running around in chaos on a spinning orb in space, created out of the obliteration and fusion of compounds and gasses, and stars and particles in the cosmos.

Being a person who is a little bit different, born to a family that is a little bit different, I would rather tell children, do not fear strangers, but do not trust them, if a stranger tells you to go with them without our permission, tell them no. Even in life you will find that you cannot trust your friends. Take no guff. Hurt nobody unless you are defending yourself or someone else from harm. Be curious about people who are a bit different. Learn from them, study them, do not put them down.
Sadists, control-freaks, violent criminals, sex criminals, news stations, businesses, and general predatory people(s) all thrive on the power and gravity of fear. They can sense it. They can see it from a mile away. Fear is often irrational and ingrained and impressed upon others. Distrust and vigilance, are natural instinct. They are smarter than fear as they have a confidence to them. Fear can be paralyzing. It can also make people do absurd things. Fight or Flight. 
Programming a flight or flight syndrome into people is socially irresponsible.

One last thing to share. While we need to protect the children from predatory individuals and collectives of individuals. Society has let some horrendous things happen because of their collective fear. There are many out there who deserve to be locked away for a very long time for their crimes against children, however there are many people out there who  have been wrongfully accused. Such events and talk of events becomes an absolute witch-hunt, and often rationalism is replaced by fear and horrendous actions 'retribution' and rampant paranoia. 

*shrug*

Beautiful girl by the way.

Complete agree with you.

Two more things. First, a 'different' individual is more honest in his attempts to fit or be excluded socially. Nobody, except mentally handicap people, will show you their intentions on purpose when you meet them. If someone is a pedophile you will never notice it until someone you know is a victim or you watch the news.

And second... What is to be 'different'?. Historical genius people were different and teach people and kids to fear them would be a big mistake.

Not so long ago in the UK 4 young males under the age of twenty were jailed for grooming young girls into acts of pornography and prostitution on facebook, one of the girls was only 8 years old. It is not wise to say only young men can be trusted!

Super Bild, wie man es gewöhnt ist von Dir :-) , der Streifen auf ihrem Po, wahrscheinlich eine Reflexion vom Vorhand irritiert mich ein wenig,
damit scheint es das hier der hinten etwas gewölbter gemacht wurde, was ich nicht glaube aber auf den ersten Blick irritiert es mich.

ja, der Streifen ist ein Zufall, aber gefällt mir noch. Es ist die Überlappung zuerst beider Schatten von zwei Lichtquellen und dann die Überlappung beider Lichtzüge. Wäre schwierig absichtlich hinzukriegen :-)

Perhaps you should be more precise in what you mean by "be afraid of everyone who's a little bit different"?
Define what you mean by "different".

I only came to this deviation because the title piqued my curiosity, and I decided to see what you meant by it.
Unfortunately, the meaning is very unclear. This is because what is "different" can be defined in a myriad of ways, but you haven't specified any.
At face-value, I could interpret that phase as an insult, as I take pride in my uniqueness.
I do not think it is right to tell people that we should be afraid of anyone who is different, especially as we are all incredibly unique in our own ways, thus are all different.

But, instead of simply taking your phrase at its face-value, I'd like to understand what is meant by it, as it could be quite unlike initial appearances.

I think it was meant tongue-in-cheek to expose the absurdity of letting these fear-mongering stories dominate our common sense when figuring out what to be afraid of and what not.
Fear everyone who is a little bit different. Also all people under five foot tall and especially everyone who knows what the capital city of Portugal is.

Gothic-Lycan Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2014
Perhaps you are right.
And isn't the capital of Portugal called "Lisbon" or something like that? (I'm not overly familiar with the names of cities on the continent)
