The Ninja Turtles' Deadly Ecstasy

Erotica // Tuesday, April 09, 2013
Ninja. Turtle. Porn. No need to do a double-take, you read that right. And on YouTube no less, not even some dark corner of the deep web. In the span of a bizarrely depraved twenty-five minutes, video artist James Unsworth soundly defiles any remaining shred of childhood innocence left in our internet-debased brains. Strangest of all, despite its degenerate contents, the video is technically SFW...

Gabriel Everett's "Chrysalis"

Erotica // Wednesday, March 27, 2013
Gabriel Everett's "Chrysalis" for Wolf Magazine is an absolutely stunning cinematic record of the female body in transition. The evocative title speaks to the sort of slow unfurling of a nude body as it interacts with the sunlight in this gorgeous footage. The viewer gets to witness this beautiful, sultry series of moments as the model lounges in a poolside villa. Though we've all seen our share of slow-motion women in pools, the strong cinematography and gorgeous styling of this video give us an entirely fresh experience that will leave anyone wanting more.
