  1. I don't think so.

    The fundamental difference is that they tend to have different effects.

    Pop art strives for recognition, for clarity to the unprepared, ordinary viewer. Therefore, pop art chooses as its object what we often see or discuss (the lives of stars, money, brands, etc.).

    Pornography tends to arouse the viewer, and its objects are rather taboo for general display (and perhaps someone is also rejected). In addition, pornography tends to be realistic, and pop art has a lot of convention.

    In some ways, pornography is the closest thing to hyperrealism. However, if you cross pornography with glamour, it will already be close to pop art. For example, look at the works of Terry Rogers – what are they more, porn or glamorous post-pop art?
