When I was 14, the Police released Synchronicity, and the lyrics of
the song "King Of Pain" always moved me - it is essentially a list of
metaphors for pain. The imagery is rich and poetic, and I always
wondered why they didn't shoot a video for it. This image is based on
the line in the bridge "There's a blind man, looking for the shadow of
a doubt." I thought about calling this simply "King Of Pain" but there
are so many beautiful images in the lyric, there may be room for more
based on the song. Model: Ed Barron

Shouldn't this be tagged adult?

No I don't think so, but if you think so, if you think the point of it is nudity and you are the genitals that can barely be seen police, then go ahead and report it.

It was a polite question which, in my opinion, didn't really merit such a sarcastic reply

Ok, well, in my opinion, leaving a comment and saying nothing but questioning whether or not it is adult is not polite. It seems pointless, unless your some sort of moderator. It is reducing something I worked a lot on into focusing on the fact that you can see evidence of a penis, which apparently in any context in your head, equals adult. Sorry if I have no patience for prudish behavior or evidence of it. One has to wonder if you felt compelled to do this simply because it was male parts, and if you would have policed a female depiction with opaque foliage covering her private parts.

Polite is not universal. And I am of the school of if you have nothing good to say, don't say anything at all. If you had something to say on its content, or artistic value or failure, I might have been more receptive. Get it?

Your work does provoke a deeper understanding and appreciation of expressionism.

Brilliant in this dire pool of contagion.

Synchronicity 2 is a great track for inspiratiom as well...

Excellent portrayal of your intention - I love it ! I did not even notice the hidden manhood until I read the dialogue and went looking for it Smile
