Porn or just nudity?

I have had this discussion with people in the past, and the arguments that come up are always more thought provoking than the question itself. Porn is considered by many, any imagery shown in a lecherous manner. What are the parameters of crudeness? That is the rub. Is it all views of pubic hair for example? What about certain postures? Is standing straight alright, but pushing the bottom forward too suggestive? What about people whose bodies protrude naturally?

Playboy magazine considers itself tasteful nudity, and this is so based on practically utilizing every type of photo retouching known to modern man. Also all of the women are always wearing a tan line, that seems to cloth the naked woman somehow and make her ‘tame’ as opposed to other nude magazines who could care less about posing the women in any other way but ‘exposed.’

What about images of men? Or men and women together? Why is it that ancient images of copulation are considered Art, but present day images online are not?
