Does a nude photo become sexual/porn if the model is posing with legs open even with no sexual activity and nothing sexual implied?

This would include nude poses where the model poses with legs open in a sitting, laying and squatting position... along with bending over and raising legs up where the genitalia is clearly visible and even appearing to be intentionally shown to the camera with no sexual activity and nothing sexual implied.

    Depends on who you talk to. At the very least all nudes are considered adult models, to try and keep them away from minors. I was a topless model in college, everything I did was about my breasts and torso, so I was largely an "adult model"

    No there's nothing wrong with it at all, people need to stop being such prudes.

    Exposure of that area - yes, it can be classified as porn.

    Some people consider bikini modeling porn. Others think that topless photos are porn. The word porn means very little. Why is it when people find a part of the body they don't like, they call it "junk?" There is nothing wrong with photographing genitals. Why would sexual activity be seen as low class? "Porn" is meant as an insult word. Not everyone has the same tastes.

    Not absolutely necessarily porn, but very likely porn. It would depend partly on the props visible in the photo, and any "intention" which might be assumed from the general style of the photo.

    Photos of naked women for "artistic" purposes rarely show full frontal open-leg poses - that pose has no beauty.

    A nude photo is just that, a nude photo. Put it in an art studio and they call it art. Publish it in a smut magazine and it becomes porn. Then again, a nude photo in an art studio that elicits sexual reactions becomes porn and one in a smut magazine that doesn't elicit any sexual arousal is just art. Porn is all in the mind. It's highly based on opinion. With poses like that, what opinion do you think you'll get?

    It most certainly can and because the genitalia is visible, it is very likely that it would be considered porn.

    Ultimately, it's the viewer that determines whether or not a nude photo is porn. If the viewer thinks that it's porn, then to them it is. More than likely if genitalia is visible, most people would consider it porn. A judge once said "I can't define pornography, but I know it when I see it."

    There have been a lot of nude photography over the last century and a half; most of it in black & white, and almost none of it showed genitalia. It's a matter of being classy. Showing a woman's junk is not being classy.

    IMO, no. Most likely, there will be some who would say yes. Nudity has been used in art throughout the ages. Artistic nudes can be erotic without being pornographic.

    Searching for "nude photography porn definition" brought up some discussions about that. It's not something I occupy my time worrying about.
