Cheeky Games

Erotica // Friday, August 10, 2012
We doubt any of the tennis players in the Olympics are rocking skirts this short, but singer Kylie Minogue doesn't seem to mind showing some cheeks. This playful image was shot by none other than Terry Richardson whose photographs sometimes tend to have an erotic edge, and hey, we don't mind.  

Sergei Bizjaev's Surreal Eroticism

Erotica // Friday, August 10, 2012
Russian photographer Sergei Bizjaev is a champion of the tested and true union between Surrealism and Eroticism. Levitation is a common theme as nude female forms are placed in uncanny situations, creating dream-like scenes that are as unsettling as they are titillating.

Olympics or Gay Porn?

Erotica // Friday, August 10, 2012
  At this point we should all be pretty aware of the homoerotic undertones of organized sports but these screencaps from this year's Olympics brought to you by the magic of DVR make it hard to tell if we're still watching NBC or if we accidentally changed the channel.

Martine is a Dutch born and raised artist, right from the green heart of the Netherlands, now living and working in Amsterdam.

Andy Warhol for Jux Erotica

Erotica // Thursday, August 09, 2012
In the fall of 1977, Andy Warhol began work on two new series of artworks which would become known as Torsos and Sex Parts.

Pizza My Heart

Erotica // Thursday, August 09, 2012

Food play can have sexual or non-sexual connotations and often refers to sitophilia, a form of sexual fetishism in which participants are aroused by erotic situations involving food. From one meat lover to the rest of the world, Juxtapoz Erotica Loves Pizza. Forever. Enjoy your lunch break.
