I don't view these statements as contradictory:
Yes you should understand that the fantasizing in question is indeed about half naked women. We agree there.
But my point was that
1) The model is not herself necessarily promiscuous just because she's posing.
2) The mere fact that she is posing suggestively does NOT necessarily send the message that she is promiscuous.
3) The person enjoying the photographs is not necessarily perceiving the model as promiscuous nor deriving pleasure from the thought that the model may be promiscuous.
AGAIN: YOU'RE "DEBATING" A PHOTOGRAPHER
ALL I'm saying, folks, is that it depends: On the model, the pose, the viewer...
There are many variables in this situation. And not everyone responds the same way.
What's so damned controversial about this statement??
Nothing. I agree with it. The disconnect seems to be with how one defines promiscuity.
