litmind is not specialized in nude photography, so it's not the best place to upload your photos if your work is mainly based on nude photography. We only allow nude photography when we consider it has a high technical and artistic quality. We never accept nude photos strongly showing erotic contents, or any other contents that we consider not suitable for the community.
Why we do not allow nude photography or erotism on litmind?
We know that erotic and nude photography is a fantastic artistic discipline giving a huge creative dimension to the artist, and that it has allowed for beautiful and renowned pictorial and photographic trends since the very begginings of the art history.
However, Internet is saturated by sites aimed specifically to this art. Litmind is a work tool very different from this sites, aimed specifically to professional advertising photography. We do not want it to be saturated with this style of photos because we think it would defeat our main purpose. On the real life, a very small amount of professional advertising campaigns are based upon erotic or nude photography, and a web site full of erotic contents will sadly attract lots of fake users whose intentions would be very far from those for which we've created Litmind:
Sites like Litmind are kind of small paradise for scammers and impersonators searching for girls (most of the times) with intentions totally apart from photography. During the years we've been managing this site we've found hundreds of terrifying cases related to prostitution, pornography, sexual abuse, impersonation, fake castings, fake model agencies and a lot more.
Additionally to lots of other actions we take every day to avoid this scams on Litmind, we've decided to limit nude photography, castings and events related to nudity or erotism.
Sadly, there's a big chance that people honestly doing nude and erotic photography become affected by this rules and couldn't signup or upload their great works on Litmind. We hope they understand our rules and motivations!
So, litmind hates nude photography?
Of course not! Our purpose is to keep Litmind as a workplace strongly aimed to professional photography other than nudity and erotism. We only truly hate the scammers and their bad intentions, and we've taken this decision to keep a great work environment with the maximum possible security level. Please, don't get angry if your work is honest and this rules affect you. We also think it's not fair. Remember that this is a community of thousands of users, and that rules must apply to everyone equally.
Some of your photos have been cancelled because of this?
Don't get angry! Now you know that we do not allow this photography styles, and one of our administrators considered that your photo didn't meet our rules. Cancellation of photos don't affect your positioning nor your account status.
Who decides whether a photo contains nudity, erotism or not?
Well, this is one of the biggest problems we have to face every day, and we've learnt along the years that there's no human way to know it for sure: art's subjectivity is undeniable. In practice, our administrators decide when a photo doesn't meets our rules in a subjective way. Of course, that's not a foolproof method, and our criteria it's not neccessarily the best.
