You can try, for sure; but according to the policies of five of the most popular social networks that allow you to share pictures, marble statues are able to show as much as they can.
Wait a moment, what?
Let me explain it, for some time I have been noticing that on social media most people do not care if the statues are fully clothed or not. In public places you can browse or look for pictures of nude statues and probably nobody would be shocked or roll their eyes.
Nevertheless, if instead of statues you are posting yet looking for people striking similar poses or they are as much clothed as some of those statues, you might be requested to cover some body parts.
The picture below can be found on one of the latest exclusive articles of Vanity Teen and is an example of what most social networks consider to be appropriated when posting a sexy photo or an artistic picture.
Also, knowing those five social networks have public content I compared their policies about nudity and used “marble statue”, “guy” “girl” and “model” as keywords to find out what kind of pictures we can see over there without restrictions.
Instagram and Facebook
Instagram is owned by Facebook so they share the same policies.
How so? In their Community Guidelines they claim to understand why some people “might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature” nonetheless they express nudity is not allowed in any form: “photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks. It also includes some photos of female nipples”.
There are some exceptions: “photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed. Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is OK, too”.
Good for the marble statues!
Finally, in their Community Standards they say some reasons not to share nudity are to avoid misusage or non-consensual sharing of the images and some users “may be sensitive” to that kind of content.
Therefore, what does Facebook show?
How About Instagram?
Some of you remember year ago this social network was free to post whatever people like, but nowadays in their Community Guidelines you can read they are “deeply committed to supporting and protecting freedom of speech” but also they have to be careful because there are some content and “behavior that jeopardize our users, threaten our infrastructure, and damage our community”.
They explicitly say no matter how old you might be you cannot post any “adult content” understood as “photos, videos, or GIFs that show real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples”.
Let us see.
In their Terms of Service it is said they are on line to help us discover the things we love. Also, they will suspend your account if you “post porn or spam or be rude to other people on Pinterest”. So, they claim to accept “well-being with adult nudity given the non-pornographic context” to help people “don’t run into it accidentally”.
About this social network, you can check their Terms of Service, Sensitive media Policy and Non-consensual Nudity Policy but long story short; I could say on Twitter you can find almost as any adult content as you want, just keep in mind you can’t break the law nor pots images or any other media without consent, so every user can decide what to see and what to hide from their eyes.
All things considered, I will not post pictures from Twitter; you can tell there is not much difference between marble statues and human nudity on their media content.
Unlike Twitter, on Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr and Pinterest, if you specifically look for the words “naked” “nudity” or similar you might find messages like “are you sure that’s what you want”, “Sorry there’s not content including that word”, “Try a different word” and so, but being honest, looking and looking I found out on most of them some adult content under the generic keywords mentioned earlier, guess no one has already feel offended by those posts.
Anyhow, whether you might be able or not to be sexier than a marble statue, social networks are trying to make their contents look like the person who looks for them, so have fun and don’t be rude to others.
By the way, those who say human cannot fall in love with statues certainly do not know the myth of Pygmalion.
