    Why Pregnancy and Birth Photography Isn't Pornographic?

    Melissa Jean specializes in the wonder and beauty of birth and baby images I have ever seen or had the pleasure of casting my eyes upon. Instragram band her photos from their social media website, saying they were sexual in content.  Below is part of her response to Instragram;
    “…My social media following is the number one reason I have a successful business and when people report my work “because they find birth/motherhood offensive” it’s so incredibly sad. They mustn’t realise their actions are affecting my livelihood. My photography is not sexual, nor does it exploit women..."

    depends on individual. In my country, this type of photo is consider "porno" but in western countries it is consider "educational"

      Here Adam And Eve were married and God made clothes for them, the mind hear was involved that God clothed them even married.

      This picture does not say to me pregnancy and birth, I just see and exposed man, an a woman caressing him.
      People can put a title on anything but does not mean it is proper,  God Clothed Adam and Eve with Skins, this man needs clothes , the point

      Kenna you do not see him , But why is this picture an issue, because people do not see your picture as a child.
      No this is  a grown man in almost a fetal position.
      Why not use a real picture of a baby , why this one. Disturbing.

    Just ask your self if innocent would you give this picture to your child or young family member,  hoping That I think no one would,  people need to know that everything
    That exist is not meant to download in our minds , just as a computer we can distort , we can contaminate a clean mind, why accept everthing some one else decides to put in your brain.
    We do this for our computers not to distroy it's functions, protect your greater and valuble asset
    The brain. Also protect our childrens.

      From God's point of view notice, Adam and Eve situation
      King James Version
      Ge 3:21Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

    Pornography is meant to be sexual or arouses sexual feelings.

    The human body is not automatically sexualized, the naked human form is simply our natural state, it's certain PEOPLE who will see sexuality and perversion in everything, even where it's not intended.

    I don't think photos like these should be considered porn because they are not intended to be interpreted sexually, they're just images of the human body in it's natural state.

      Interesting of the thought , but everthing has a proper place
      If a teacher had her picture in the nude in her class would it be appropriate ? Yes she may have a beautiful body but that is not the place and time to expose it.

      I agree.  This photo says a daughter comforting her mother while she is going through a natural birth.

      Kenna I do not know what your point of saying this is not a man , I guess he can be what ever you want him to be , so To me I see an exposed naked man. Which I would not allow my children nore grands to view. That's all I have to say.
