The 'Fine Art' of Pornography?

In Dave Monroe (ed.), Porn: Philosophy for Everyone. Wiley-Blackwell. 153--65 (2010)
Abstract
Can pornographic depictions have artistic value? Much pornography closely resembles art, at least in many superficial respects. Films, photographs, paintings—all of these can have artistic value. Of course, films, photographs and paintings can also be pornographic. If some photographs have artistic value, and some photographs are pornographic, can pornographic photographs have artistic value too? I argue that pornography may only possess artistic value despite, not by virtue of, its pornographic content.
