My guess is that it would be treated similarly. As mods have pointed out, this is neither a site devoted to porn, nor art. It is devoted to the rather narrowly defined topic of getting and spending, with particular reference to retiring as a young person. To some this narrowness may itself seem pornographic, but those "some" are not in charge here.
Once I posted a bas relief that is seen on a wall in the South German town of Bodman-Ludwigshafen, featuring naked images of Angela Merkel, Gerhard Schroeder, Helmut Schmidt and others. It was not entirely uncontroversial in Germany, being decried by some as pornographic. The artist, Peter Lenk, said it represented "polical group sex". It as part of a tryptich, also featuring naked images of powerful German business leaders.
It was not at all well received here, which caught me by surprise as it isn't even attractive. Face it, these are all old people, who were not exctly hot even when young. It is obviously a political statement, not an attempt to be prurient. As the Lenk said at the time, "Politics is much more pornographic then any art".
The board is somehwat like one's lover. You know what the bounds are, and if they constrain, one needs to go elsewhere for the missing quality.
C'est la vie, n'est ce pas?
