Androgynous model Andrej Pejic says topless shoot is ‘art, not porn’

London: Androgynous male model, Andrej Pejic has argued that his topless image on the cover of ‘Dossier’ magazine, which had been censored earlier this month, was a piece of art and not porn.

Book retailer, Barnes and Noble had sparked a debate when they elected to censor an image of model in case customers confuse him for a woman.

“I think the question really isn’t the gender of the person on the cover, it’s whether it’s porn or it’s art. And clearly, it’s art, so art really should not be censored in a democratic society,” the Daily Mail quoted the Serbian-born model as telling New York magazine.

“But even that, I think, is irrelevant. It’s art, so I don’t think it should be censored at all. It’s not any sort of sexual image,” Pejic added.

The 19-year-old also joked that he understood why retailers might have been confused.

“I have just been named the 98th sexiest woman in the world, so it makes the situation a little bit confusing for them,” he said.

Pejic has said that he is comfortable modelling both men`s and womenswear and aspires one day to model for ‘Playboy’.

The model who was raised in Australia, was discovered while working in McDonalds. Fashion industry insiders have hailed him the next big thing in the modeling world.
