Art or Porn: Sex on YouTube

by John Quest   3/2/11

I have read some of the other articles on this site that are a guide for parents to the kind of sexual content that can be found on YouTube.  I decided to write this article after I found nudity in full-length movies which anyone can watch on YouTube.  If you are a parent, please read this so that you can learn about how easy it is to find nudity on YouTube.  If you are under 18, I would ask you to please read another article on this site, such as their articles on iCarly, Glee or Avatar.

Last year, YouTube got rid of the 10 minute cap in length of video uploads, and now there are full length movies to watch at YouTube.  You will not find the latest and most popular movies on YouTube but you will find older "B" movies, some of which were not popular or well known at the time of their original release but which became "cult classics" over the years.  You will find adventure / monster movies like "Fire Monsters Against The Son Of Hercules" featuring muscle men and women in animal skins with poorly dubbed dialogue, and horror classics like Herschell Gordon Lewis' splatter film "The Wizard of Gore" which is similar to his first gore movie "Blood Feast" that also features bloody dismemberings.

You will also find the subject of this article, nudist movies from the 1960s.  I found three full-length movies made by independent film producer Doris Wishman (AllMovie bio).  These 3 YouTube videos show nudity but do not show genital areas or anyone actually having sex.  If you are offended by nudity, do not watch these movies!  How were these movies with nudity able to be made?  It seems that in the early 1960s, there was a sexploitation film market in America during the last days of the Motion Picture Production Code, also known as the Hays Code.  This code was put in place by the movie industry in the 1930s as a set of guidelines as to what could not be shown in films.  But independent producers such as Wishman were not following the rules.  They also got around pornography laws against nudity by showing non-sexual nudists and naturists at nudist camps.  The people in these movies were not involved in any kind of sex act.

Would you consider these art films, documentaries or porn? The Dictionary defines  pornography as obscene writing, photos or the like having little artistic merit designed to stimulate sexual excitement.  Apparently it is derived from from the Greek words pornē  (a harlot or prostitute) and graphein (to write).  There were legal attempts to restrict these kinds of films and material, which led to the 1964 Supreme Court case "Jacobellis v. Ohio," which ruled that the constitution protects films as long as they are not "obscene."  Judge Potter Stewart did not clearly define obscenity or hard core pornography but said, "I know it when I see it..."

Doris Wishman made 8 nudist films, also known as nudie cutie underground films, in the early 1960s.  Since there is no sex, just nudity, they were not deemed to be obscene and were shown in certain adult theaters.  There are two Doris Wishman nudist movies, both filmed in 1961, which are on YouTube.  The first is "Diary Of A Nudist" about a newspaper man who comes across a nudist camp while hunting and then sends his female secretary to  the camp so she can write a story about it.

The second 1961 Doris Wishman nudist film on YouTube is "Nude On The Moon" - a Sci-Fi nudist movie filmed partly at South Florida attraction, the Coral Castle.  This movie is about two amateur scientists who build their own rocket and fly to the moon.  There, instead of a barren wasteland, they find a lush garden paradise inhabited by"virtually naked telepathic humanoids" and one scientist falls in love with their Goddess.

By the mid 1960s, movie standards and the public's tastes were changing.  The Production Code Administration had allowed women's breasts to be shown in "The Pawnbroker" from Allied Artists American International Pictures starring Rod Steiger.  The afrementioned Supremem Court decision had taken place.  Nudist camp movies were becoming less commercially viable, so Doris Wishman switched to a new form of sexploitation movie known as "roughie" films that mixed sex and violence.  Here is "Indecent Desires" from 1967, filmed in Black and White.  It is the story of a man who finds some sort of magic voodoo doll which is connected to a young woman who feels whatever is done to the doll.  The movie has very little violence but does feature actresses Sharon Kent and Jackie Richards naked and in lingerie.  In all 3 of these films, genital areas are not shown and no one is actually having sex.

Now you can judge for yourself - are these art flims, quasi-documentaries, sexploitation films or pornography?  Do they belong on YouTube?  Would you want your young children to find them on YouTube?  It is true that these films are "flagged" so that they can't be viewed unless you are signed in to YouTube and have signified that you are over 18 according to the birth date you entered when you made your account.  Is that enough to keep children from seeing videos like this?

I agree with the conclusion reached in the related articles on this site.  If you are a parent, it is up to you to know what your young children are doing on the internet.  You don't want them to become involved with scandalous behavior and go through what 11 year old Jessi Slaughter endured.  I believe it is your responsibility to educate yourself about what is on YouTube.  I hope this article was a help.  Also, please read YouTube's Parent Resources page and their "Safety Mode" page which "gives users the option to choose not to see mature content that they may find find offensive..."

What if you are an adult and want to watch these kinds of movies?  If you are married, how would you react to your husband (or wife) wanting to watch these films?  Is it morally wrong to watch movies with nudity in them?  These are questions that, as an adult, you can answer for yourself.  I would say that if you find yourself addicted to this type of material - if you just can't wait to get in front of your computer to watch and it is affecting other areas of your life - you might want to stop or cut back in the amount of nudity you look at.  If you need help, here are a list of websites about "porn addiction."  If you feel you need more help, seek professional counseling.  Many people have been helped with this addiction and there is no shame in taking steps to improve your life if you feel you have a problem.
