"Bawdy" Erotica of the 18th Century

(via boingboing)

A taste:
When my brisk Lass Upon the Grass,
Will sport, and Give her Love ;
She'll wink and pink,
Till she can't think ;
That's Happiness, by Jove !

The Photography Blog of Erotic Maverick

Impressive debut of horny photos
Despite the self-described amateur label, much of "Erotic Maverick's" debut photography kicks out a keen erotic sensibility.

As his wanton muse, "Kenzie" is on full display, her sexuality unchecked and objectified without condescension. The lens roams her fertile figure in sweaty, saturated detail but shows a lustful respect for the model even as she assumes the most submissive poses.

Here EM successfully channels, the intensity and grit of Jeff Koons' provocative "Butt Red".

Bataille, brothels & photography


Bettina Rheim's work Chambre Close, 2002, has affinities with Bataille and his experience of French brothels in the 1930s. The literary conceit of this work is of 19th-century erotica, in which a staid banker-type has a secret obsession to photograph young girls in anonymous hotel rooms.


Pulpitty pulp-pulp!

Seven, Seventy One published fairly basic girlie slicks before the name changed to Seven Seventy a few years later. The earlier mags from Seven, Seventy One were more often than not published without dates until they started including them in the indicia sometime in 1965, right before they changed their name to Seven Seventy. There were rarely any credits for the editor or staff and when a story or article was credited it was more than likely a pseudonym. For example in Lusty v2 #1 1966, Sy London is listed as the editor and Richard Rank as the art director, who was listed as Dick Rank in a few other Seven Seventy mags.

In 1965 they became Seven Seventy Publishers and the look of their mags started to change also. The graphics and blurbs got bigger, bolder, hipper, and wackier. Another of their particular quirks was occasionally reusing captions, sometimes under photos where they made no sense!

David Lynch's new "film" (digital video actually)

David Lynch close to completing new film
The director has spent the last two years making 'INLAND EMPIRE'.

The mysterious tale of a woman in trouble, 'INLAND EMPIRE' (which is the grim residential area on the edge of the desert near LA) stars Laura Dern, Justin Theroux and Harry Dean Stanton, as well as several local Polish actors.
