A portmanteau of lewd and nude, suggesting the use of pornographic material to ease loneliness, relax or to share with others for peer-bonding rather than the explicit purpose of masturbation: either through image boards or discord servers - or larger communities such as gelbooru, sankaku complex or e621.

They typically have more in common with softcore pornography or pinups and are usually drawn, rather than photographed.

A common example is the use of ahegao within the vaporwave and citypop communities.

A nod to quaaludes, a classification of sedative which is also known to ease one's sexual inhibitions.

Meetings with those ones share ludes with are far more likely to become sexual encounters or experiments if in privacy, regardless of one's orientation due to the shared comfort and relaxed atmosphere said material creates between individuals and the primer they create for the discussion of aesthetic, thematic and fetishistic preference which draw people together.
"Pochincoff really nails robot ludes, doesn't he?"

"Hang on, let me check my lude folder"

"The server's mainly circlejerking to anime ludes but some of the members are ok I guess"
