Jane Radstrom's Expressive Nudes

Erotica // Monday, November 11, 2013
Jane Radstrom is a painter and designer based in Austin, TX. She lives a quiet life of cooking, eating, teaching, painting and scheming. 'I first studied drawing and painting at Watts Atelier California. The methods practiced in atelier schools are based on meticulous renaissance traditions of masterful realism. Then, I attended Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL, earning a BFA in Illustration. Illustration is all about bringing ideas to life - it is art created to clearly convey specific meaning...

Ryan McGinley "Yearbook" @ Ratio 3, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 23, 2013
Well, you got 3 days to check this one out if you are in Northern California. Ryan McGinley has returned to Ratio 3 in San Francisco for one of our favorite installations of the year, Yearbook, featuring an entire site-specific, immersive installation of McGinley's color portraits of... well, a ton of naked men and women who would have done well at the Arcade Fire show in Brooklyn this past weekend. To be honest, all together, in all this color, the installation is quite stunning, and you have until October 26th to see it.

Eric Yahnker "EBONY & BENGHAZI" @ Ambach & Rice, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 11, 2013
One of the most interesting, irreverent, humorous, and talented artists working in galleries today has to be Eric Yahnker, who controls a colored pencil and critique of pop culture better than anyone. The May 2011 cover artist just opened a brilliant new show, Ebony & Benghazi, at Ambach & Rice in Los Angeles, featuring both massive colored pencil works on paper, installation pieces, and apparently, a naked woman hanging out in the gallery.

Erin M. Riley & Joe Boruchow "IN & Out" @ Paradigm Gallery, Philadelphia

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 29, 2013
Erin M Riley creates tapestries that look like page from Instagrams oddly pre-teen "Greatest HIts" section, using the medium to show young women and modern-day subject matter that is both salacious and uncomfortably alluring. Joe Boruchow creates paper-cuts that also explore a bit of NSFW naugtiness as well as observations about American society. The two will be showing together starting August 30, 2013, at Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia.

Porn Sex vs. Real Sex Explained With Food

Erotica // Tuesday, August 13, 2013
This amazing informational video illustrates the differences between porn sex and real sex by using food as an analogy. Using zucchinis, cilantro, nutella, hot dogs, various sliced fruits and a lightly-bondaged chicken, this video makes use of everyday accoutrements to demonstrate the difference between pornland and our own bedrooms. The result is a hilariously intelligent bit of sex-education, we'd recommend it to (almost) all age groups, especially if your own midnight romps aren't living up to the glamour of the waxed-up video world. Also, just listen to her say "hot load" a few times.

Polaroids by Chloe Aftel

Erotica // Saturday, July 27, 2013
We are in the waning days of summer, about a month to go, and we think a good way of celebrating comes in the form of the polaroid photography of various women clothed and not so-clothed by fashion and commercial photographer Chloe Aftel. Chloe has a great resume of editiorial shoots for Levi's, Google, and Nintendo, but perhaps a little nudity would never hurt anyone... 

Music Video: The Flaming Lips "You Lust" (NSFW)

Music // Monday, May 06, 2013
Nothing says let's wake up on a Monday morning and see some weird like watching two naked bodies get all lab tested and futuristic along with the music of The Flaming Lips. "You Lust" is a track from the Lips' new LP, The Terror, is a long, winding, 13-minute epic, but thank you to Oklahoma's finest, this is along 4 minutes long. NSFW because this contains a full 4-minutes of nude bodies going all Matrix on you.
