In 1946 Magritte issued his manifesto Surrealism in full sunlight, saying, “We have neither the time nor the taste to play at Surrealist art, we have a huge task ahead of us, we must imagine charming objects which will awaken what is left within us of the instinct to pleasure.”

The Happy Mess: "Backyard Girl"

Erotica // Thursday, July 10, 2014
The Portuguese pop band "The Happy Mess" has released a new video for their single "Backyard Girl" featuring two girls kissing-- a theme none of us are strangers to. While this particular 'theme' is often portrayed in an inauthetic pornstar just-for-jerks fashion, this music video has a more emotional feel, and you can actually sense some care and passion between the leading ladies. In a world where lesbian affection is often mistreated as a male fetish, it's nice to see a video that seems to really be about the women.

Black and White Drawings by Natasha Lillipore

Erotica // Thursday, July 10, 2014
Natasha Lillipore is a model, illustrator and designer whose black and white erotic drawings feature beehive-headed Elvira-esque halloween beauties in provocative poses. The black-and-white modem gives a tattoo flash feel to these illustrations, and we're enjoying the mix between demure heavy-lidded lady characters and their raunchy, unembarrassed behavior. Lillipore currently lives in LA with her boyfriend and 13 year old cat, Bart Hog.

Modern Shunga from Jeff Faerber - NSFW

Erotica // Thursday, July 10, 2014
Jeff Faerber's naughty painting series based on traditional Japanese Shunga prints capture the look of the original prints but update it with western figures and modern toys, products and food. "Shunga" is a Japanese term for erotic art--translated literally, the Japanese word "shunga" means "picture of spring," as "spring" is a common euphemism for sex. These paintings are truly modern translations of shunga.

Alaqua Fry: Gorgeously Grim

Erotica // Wednesday, July 09, 2014
There's that age old saying that goes something like, 'It isn't good unless it hurts a little bit', right?? I think its safe to say that the work of Alaqua Fry falls into this category. With provocative feminine characters, that often times seem to be compromising their own mortality, her work has both sides of everything we (I) admire. Love, lust and a little bit of gore. <3
