    Ok, maybe it's just me, but how articulate do you have to be to post pictures of half naked woman into a Hub, and call it creative writing?

      girl....I have been saying that forever. There are way too many people posting lame photos just to get the views. They aren't too concerned about the content. Its stupid, I know.

        Yes, I agree it is a really stupid thing to just upload pics of half naked girls without any content, as it is bringing down the quality of not only people who did it but other people also suffer who write quality content due to that.

        These pics are also interfering with the online image of this really useful site, HUBPAGES, as a whole.

        I'm frustrated when I read hub full of sexy and naked photos with no substance at it seems uninformative at all since we see a lot of sexy, beautiful women who's photos need not be posted anywhere.

      Well, there are 2 naked women in my Hub below, but I'd say it was justified:

      and it has been my highest viewed Hub for weeks.  Hint, hint...

        Agree , not all hubs are creative , yet they have to be created to be published etc .

        I hear what youre saying though , hub as in any writing?

      HubPages is not about "creative writing", although there's a section of the community that uses Hubpages for that. 

      HubPages is about creating magazine-style articles to earn money.  And of course, some magazines DO feature half-naked women! 

      Apparently they do generate traffic (which is why they end up on Hot Hubs) but it's not paying traffic - they don't earn much.  Some people seem to think that creating traffic for the sake of traffic achieves something - can't see it myself.

    well it depends upon the definition of "sexy"... Are photos of naked woman always the sexy... I do not think so.

    a nice looking girl with all clothes on can also look sexy. I think showing girl's naked body is more offensive than creative. especially in hubs where writer's view may justify it but readers's view may not. neutral

    This issue comes up fairly often, but the truth is that HubPages isn't necessarily a creative writing site, some people use it to air their creative writing skills, some people use it with the sole purpose of making money, others use it to direct traffic towards their own sites, HubPages is many things to many people.

      I notice the sexy robots on your site...guess you're neutral on this topic?

        Mrvoodooposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        I guess you could say I'm neutral yes, although that has nothing to do with my sexy robot hub which was not designed to titillate anybody.  (and if YOU found it in any way arousing then I apologize, that was not my intention.)

        But the same advice is given on HubPages often, and in fairness it is good advice, I certainly do my best to take note of it, 'if you don't like it, ignore it, move on, and do something else instead.'

        If HubPages had a problem with them, they would close them down.

        1. jiberish profile image71
          jiberishposted 9 years agoin reply to this

          Yes, we have a choice, but the question was not if I liked it or not, it was "is it considered creative writing?". and LOL, no the Robots didn't do much for me.

            I agree with MrV too smile HP is a few different things , a big school of varied interests, and huge imaginations!

            Sexy pics may or may not get flagged by others (community) but the fact that they can even be successfully published makes me wonder, still I dont make the rules , Im here to make some pennies smile an hopefully good clean fun while Im at it.

    Sex sells and it's about driving traffic to your site. I don't do it because to me it's not something unique. I think far too much is made about the human body. We're too hung up about nudity... it is after all just skin and we're all built the same way, so if you seen one, you seem em all.

    For the ones who are against hubs with women photos - Let me ask you something - Why are you posting at the hubpages? For fun or for money?

    If you´re posting for the fun of writing I must say I understand and agree with your point.

    On the other hand, if you´re posting for money you need traffic - visitors - and girl´s photos generate good traffic.

    My photo hubs generate 10 or 20 times more traffic than my text hubs and that´s my point.

    And for the Hubpage´s site - as a whole - is also good because they get more visitors too.

    There's a certain degree of art in photography, but I do not agree when photos begin to market the human body strictly for visits, scores, or money.  The image that has been portrayed to young girls in magazines, as well as to young boys, has been proven to be demoralizing and one of many causes for physical and mental disorders.  To have this type of marketing and stereotyping on hubpages is, in my opinion, beneath this site.

      I think I would consider it creative writing if they be able to paint on there on own hands with a canvas or at least a picture of great women in the world with great contributions not only downloading or attaching sexy or nude photos of someone we don't even know just to attract the eye of the reader specially men who are visual in nature who enjoy looking at those naked photos lols.

      I agree.  Early on here at HP I created a couple picture type hubs that were mainly focusing on the art of the pictures.  They didn't get much traffic the first few days and then I added the word "sexiest" to the titles and now they bring tons of traffic, a steady 200 page views a day combined and a few pennies to boot.  Though, its my product pages and SEO hubs that bring me the most money.

      I have no objection to sexy, beautiful women in ads, but when someone calls themselves a creative writer, then post nothing but, it makes me wonder if they either can't write, or are just using thier creativity in other ways.  In either case, it's a bit deceptive, to say, in a profile, that one is a creative writer.

        I have been wondering about that kind of thing myself.  Being a guy I often use pics of women but it has to somehow relate to what I have written. 
        I just love the people with scores of 90 plus who post pics of scantily clad women and insert one whole paragraph of fashion observations that even I--a basically straight guy-- could make and yet there they are.  it's a hub and they have a high score. 
        That's why I just write what only what I like, what inspires me and/or what my regulars would like.  i have no time to point out the inequities.  (I read a hub about hub scores and it said nothing that led me to believe people who take short cuts should have these high scores.  ANyway , back to writing!
