Day 166 : Eroticart

WARNING : THIS POST CONTAINS CONTENT OF A SEXUAL NATURE AND NOT MEANT FOR ANYONE WHO HAS NOT MET HIS/HER GENITALIA. THE AUTHOR WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS AS A RESULT OF VIEWING THE IMAGES HERE. FOR ADULT MINDS ONLY PLEASE.

Few things have the ability to make me blush but an accidental encounter with a recent issue of IdN magazine had me turning beetroot. I am surprise our Singapore board of censors are finally showing signs of repentence by allowing issue v19n2 (Visual Orgasm) of IdN to reach our magazine racks. I think our anti-nation building birthrate is the result of our all-too-successful attempt at keeping Singapore sterile between the thighs and minds that the authorities eventually realised we need nationwide sex ed-ttraction to turn on friskiness again.

But artistic eroticism should not be viewed in the same blood-pumping vein as pornography. Creators of the works would have us believe it’s an interpretation and reflection of our world through the medium of genitalia. For after all, who can demounce, totally, Sigmund Freud’s observation that many motivations behind human behaviours are actively or remotely seeded by sex?

The adage that sex sells is the first commandment of every marketer’s bible notwithstanding, puritans would fight to death this abomination of morality. I used to be one of those who refuses to relegate myself to the truth that basic human sexual instinct drives many of our actions and thoughts.  “There’s more to life than sex,” used to be my snub-line at those sex-crazed types. Yes, there is more to life, such as presidency, golf, teaching, being a civil defence chief, celebrity, etc.

So in recognition and celebration of the power that human sexuality (often a subset of love) wields, here are some erotic art I stumbled upon by artists Jamie McCartney and Joseph Tailor that had me secretly flipping the pages of the IdN’s Visual Orgasm…

Titled ‘100’, the piece is dubbed the Great Wall of Erections with the artist taking casts of 100 men in their full glory. I wonder what the artist had to do to get this standing ovation of a piece.

The Great Wall of Vagina is a series of vaginal casts taken of hundreds of woman. It’s a library of the clit.

Hard as an Armadildo. LOL. Care for a ride?

The real Pussy Cat.

Uh-oh… controversial image here… but I think this image reminds us of the humanity of the person portrayed here.

All images are gotten from IdN’s website and here’s a video with artist Jamie McCartney talking about the inspiration and message behind his works using sex as a medium.
