pants-on aesthetic appreciation

noun. Non-prurient interest.

Real citation: "It wasn’t a full on bad shoot though it easily could’ve been – it was just kinda sad, as it was pretty clear that the photographer didn’t want to be shooting porn. He kept making disparaging “jokes” like “Look at me now, getting paid to ask girls to spread themselves open for me” and saying things like “Let’s just get through this. It’s not like the artistic merit of these pictures is important at all.” Now, I may be just a dumb porn girl, and a hooker to boot, but fuck, man – I love what I do, and I take pride in it. While I’m not so misguided to believe that more artistically produced “erotica” (or whatever the fuck you want to call it) inspires solely pants-on aesthetic appreciation, I heartily believe that it’s worth taking pride in porn, and making stuff that is sexy in both content and form."

Made-up citation: "Studies show that job satisfaction is directly proportional to the number of coworkers who inspire something more than pants-on aesthetic appreciation."
