I’ve decided that one of blogging’s many demented pleasures is checking out the search terms in your Dashboard. Just to clarify for the non-bloggers – we (the bloggers) are provided with a daily list of the search engine terms that brought visitors to our blog. Some days it’s predictable and mildly interesting. Other days it’s a disturbing and bizarre collection that reflects the twisted minds of misguided Internet freaks. This blog especially, with all its female “nudity” and “modeling”, attracts more than its share of perverts. Sure it’s amusing and I usually chuckle when I see them. But there have been a couple of times when I’ve read my search terms and actually felt my skin crawl. I don’t want those sickos coming here. Ew.
Here’s just a small sampling – a VERY small sampling – of some of the search terms I’ve seen in my Dashboard recently. I am copying these verbatim, word-for-word as they appear in my blog stats:
“nude little girl”
“naked tits with hard nipples”
“male art class model hung like a horse”
“fat ass model”
“balls and vagina in art”
“skinny model porn fake boobs”
“sex with art model”
“got a cock erection posing for ladies art class”
“naked whores painting”
“willing models for orgies”
“dead naked bimbo”
“old hag art model in drawing class”
“big dick drawing”
“nude female model masturbating”
And my absolute favorite: “slut claudia”
Yeaaaaaahhh! Love that last one! Sounds like an old boyfriend looking to reunite, don’t you think?
By the way, is there really someone out there who is interested in Picasso’s foreskin? Like really? Like that’s a compelling topic??? Holy crap.
Anyway, I assume that when those anonymous searchers got to Museworthy they were sorely disappointed with this blog’s actual content, and that’s fine with me. We do ART here folks. Tasteful, artistic, meaningful and non-exploitative ART. Yes, a lot of it is nude and a lot of it is of me, but it ain’t Hustler. And to the good people who searched for “Modigliani and Jeanne Hebuterne”, “Caravaggio”, “Raphael drawings”, “Suzanne Valadon”, “Francoise Gilot”, “figure modeling”, “Matisse muses”, “Picasso La Vie” and “Audrey Munson sculpture”, I offer a sincere and heartfelt thank you. You came to the right place
Here is a very Museworthy image that represents the true spirit of this blog. Drawing by Daniel Maidman, created at Spring Studio, and the model is me, not a “fat ass model”:
