Alpha Coders wants to keep artistic expression alive and free. To this end, we have a place for content that isn't family friendly, but serves an artistic purpose.This place is Image Abyss!
If you are submitting content that does not meet the criteria of being family friendly, please submit it to Image Abyss.
The key thing to remember, is that this feature is for artistic expression.
There are still some rules for nudity on Image Abyss:
When considering whether a submission would be OK under our artistic nudity rules, determine if the image has artistic merit, and if that artistic merit is clear and/or exceeds the explicit merit.
Artistic Merit guidelines
What does 'Images cannot be based on, or derived from porn' mean?:
This means that an image cannot be from a porn site, or part of a pornographic photoshoot or video. Even if the image is a headshot, any association with a pornographic site or photo/video set would be considered derived from porn. For Alpha Coders, we consider a site to be in the 'porn site' category if the main focus of the site is nudity or explicit imagery.
What if a butt/breast is covered by a hand or leg?
Generally, this would also not be OK. It would be considered nude photography, since it wasn't clothing covering anything.
A nude photograph:
A photo of a naked woman laying on the ground, with the butt cropped off
A see through shirt on a woman
Nude statues, artwork with historical value - things like these are always ok.
Nude drawing of a woman/man:
A bunch of naked anime women/men in a bed together:
This is a newer feature at Alpha Coders, so please check back once in a while to see if we have added any rules about artistic nudity.

After quite a bit of back and forth, and testing of boundaries, the Artistic Nudity guidelines have been updated quite a bit. If you saw them 4 months ago, now is a good time to look again.

Well if you ask me I am against this whole concept of porn based art which is sugar coated under the name of ARTISTIC EXPRESSION. This kind of so-called art is always sexually explicit and it attracts ill-minded lusty peoples. I think Alphacoders is better without it
Otherwise, This is my view on it. You can disagree

I've made a couple more edits. The biggest addition is:
No pedo stuff. It almost goes without saying - but now we are saying it

I have made more edits to make things more clear:
I've also included more examples. I think it could be confusing whether an arm/leg covering things was still considered nude photography - that has been clarified.
