At Managed Decline, we’ve always endorsed the murky depths of tentacle porn, but usually in the form of poetry as not to offend middle management types who distribute funding to start-up businesses.

Now, with funding secured coupled with a pragmatic acknowledgement that our tentacle based pieces have some of the highest views on the website, it’s time we give credit were credit’s due and raise tentacle porn into the light – like some sort of sexy Japanese Simba. It’s time to give it the proper artistic recognition it deserves.

Thinking of tentacle porn as art might seem like the fevered dreams of a sexual mad man – and to a point it is – but when you consider that art is a very subjective medium, tentacle porn deserves the right to fight for its place as a valid art form, as it bears all the historical and provocative hallmarks that modern art thrives off. If Banksy spent less time stealing other people’s work and more time pushing forward mediums like tentacle porn, then maybe he’d truly make a difference in the world.

 

When it comes to art, particularly modern art, it’s easy to throw intelligent words at a pile of rubbish and call it art, I mean that’s virtually the basis of Tracey Emin’s entire artistic career. So next time the Turner Prize rolls round it would be nice to see someone submit a provocative tentacle porn piece to ruffle the hairs of the middle class art Mafia that exists in the mind of Will Self. I mean, if Damien Hirst can chop a cow into pieces and call that art, then surely a gallery full of women getting violated by numerous tentacles can also be considered art?

Some of you uninformed finger-waggers will say to me: ”But David most of these pictures depicted the rape of under-age girls” to which I reply – nonsense! For someone to be under-age they would of had to be born first, these are cartoons and not real life, if you want to concern yourself with shady paedophile laced art ask your self why Stanley Kubrick would make the film Lolita. A film about the romantic conquests of a paedophile and his highly illegal 12 year old lover who *SPOILER ALERT* dies at the age of 17 giving birth to a still born. If Lolita can make a 100 best novels list then tentacle porn can be considered art worthy of admiration.

 

The internet in all its perverted glory is an all-night garage for tentacle porn from around the world, but mostly Japan as it seems to have some historical hold there. Some official sources say that the idea of tentacle porn as we know it, came about as a sneaky way of slipping past Japanese pornography censorship laws, because after all, it doesn’t matter how much something looks like a penis; if it’s not a penis it’s not illegal.

If anyone decides to do some research into tentacle porn then my advice would be to stay away from the live-action tentacle porn, involving real octopuses and real orifices, because as a society, we’re not ready to contemplate the ramifications of mollusc themed bestiality and I doubt we ever will be.

 

Since we live in a digital sea infested with every depravity known to man, it’s hard to separate the art from the vile and although tentacle porn may seem like it belongs in a sunken chest, it is too visually stunning to stay there.

So like the old saying goes, ‘’Let your tentacles run wild and free”.
