Erotica // Friday, December 21, 2012
Pantyhose are those seductive,  sheer, close-fitting legwear that appeared in the 1960s and provided a convenient alternative to stockings.

Erotica // Wednesday, December 19, 2012
Anthony Holden's motto 'Its never a bad time to make a drawing,' seems very appropriate and fitting for this illustration of his Apple Dames. I don't think there's ever a bad time for a little erotic cartooning. If you were ever wondering where the term 'apple bottoms' came from, this gives a pretty realistic definition for you, all spelled out in Anthony's adorable little nude female characters.
