Bill Ward's Classic Erotic Pin-UPs

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 24, 2012
In those countless cheap and long forgotten men’s humor magazines, Bill Ward’s voluptuous 'girly' drawings shared the pages with photos of Bettie Page and Mamie Van Doren, and pin-up cartoons by the likes of Archie’s Dan DeCarlo and Playboy magazine’s Jack Cole. Thumbing through those digests, it quickly becomes evident that Ward was Humorama’s dominant pin-up cartoon artist...'

Lucrari Claudiu Candea's Erotic Anatomy

Erotica // Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Artist Lucrari Claudiu Cândea knows how to take something utterly grotesque and abnormal and make it appear natural- or even sexy. In his series of drawings, the subject matter are apparently unphased as their skin peels and unfolds from their forms. Anatomical small intestines, hamstrings and organs are uncovered as morbid and suggestively macabre female figures are portrayed with simultaneous grace and beauty.

Japanese Sex Museums

Erotica // Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Inside the Atami Adult Museum, photography isn't allowed, though this incredible sneak shot of Bugs Bunny in a threesome with two Pink Panthers is just a taste of all that it holds. The dying trend of Japanese Sex Museums, like the city of Beppu's Hih?kan, (which closed but you can still tour on YouTube for posterity's sake) allowed visitors to witness see-through wombs, pinnipeds mid-coitus, and an animatronic display of Snow White being pleasured by all seven dwarves...

The Bosom Ballet

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 23, 2012
'The Bosom Ballet is a performance in which I stretch, pinch, squeeze, twist, rock, roll, and jiggle my breasts to music, usually “The Blue Danube Waltz,” under a pink spotlight. I wear opera-length black gloves and a tutu. Over the years I have also done various other styles of bosom dance. There was the Bosom Tap Dance, which I performed in a nightclub off Broadway...' Annie Sprinkle

The Lady Maven

Just a couple enchanting shots from The Lady Maven, Los Angeles based photographer Lindsey Anne, as seen through the eyes of a crystal. There always needs to be more secret spots where we can run and play in the nude... it gets magical out there when nobody is looking.

The Work of Gildo Medina

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 22, 2012
'Apparent simplicity is the result of extreme sophistication. Merging traditional techniques and deeply superficiality is part of the signature of Gildo Medina. The precision of his drawings transform his crystallised characters in living glorious sculptures. He creates unexpected beauty.'

Erotica // Monday, May 21, 2012
A gorgeous collection of black ink erotica from Las Vegas based illustrator Jared Africa. Loving the simplicity and subconscious expressive movements in these sketches, definitely a beautiful contrast from his usual super-saturated and vibrant works. Sexy minimalism.
