Erotic Art, That’s What’s Sexy This Week

Erotic art, that’s what sexy this week.

We all know I love art of multiple kinds, but one particular genre of the sexuality kind I truly love, is the erotic. I find it compelling, inviting, thought provoking, and downright sexy. To be inspired by erotic art is the very least I can write, because its a combination of all these elements that help to put a smile on a person’s, and their mind!

Artist’s depictions of erotism have been created for centuries, not just in nude human form, but in some of the unlikeliest. Items found in daily life, the sexy-this-week-erotic-art-melon-lovehome, the streets, renditions dreamt up in the minds of the ingenious. Inventive depictions using fruits and vegetables, found in architecture, items from the beach, or the clouds in the sky.

I think you get the point from my over zealous examples, but this is exactly what erotic art does for me, it stimulates me.

I definitely know I’m not the only one stimulated by erotic art, because if the line up down the street was any indication at this years Boobies and Wieners Erotic Art Show, then stimulation and titillation was what the throngs were in line for. If you’ve never been, then I suggest you keep an eye out for next year’s show. You’ll love the art, and the energy of the folks at the show. Giggling, chatting, sipping on a cocktail or two and possibly buying a piece of art to hang on a wall at home. The art is beautiful, erotic, sexy, and well worth the incentive.

Erotic art isn’t for everyone, and I’m not quite sure why. I prefer to believe its the uncomfortable embarrassment and nothing else, proving my point about stimulation. I remember a school trip to Kleinburg Ontario, the home of the McMichael Art Collection dedicated to the Group of Seven. During this visit an exhibition of nudes from the masters of old were on display, but our classes were not allowed to see them. A decision made by one of our teachers, a rather outspoken religious woman, a decision that didn’t stop me. I snuck away from the group, eager to feast my eyes upon the lusty canvasses denied my eyes, and see what all the fuss was about.

Rounding the corner on the second floor of the gallery while my classmates were bombarded with boredom from the Group of Seven, I was stopped dead in my tracks. A woman in full recline on a red velvet chaise with creme coloured fabrics draping her shoulders, across her torso, trailing down to her feet and across. It was beautiful, the colours, the richness, the decadence, and the casual repose. This is what we were not allowed to see?

Lasting impressions, an imprint I am grateful for because I was caught not to long after for “straying” from the group.

Again, art is truly in the eye of the beholder, I just happen to like mine vivid, beautiful, sexy, and above all erotic. I like stimulation, don’t you?sexy-this-week-erotic-art-canova-nude-recline-pauline-bonaparte

O Force 2 Male Vibrator Review

review-O-force-2-male-masturbator-1

O Force 2 Male Vibrator

As many of you remember I was reviewing adult toys in the not so distant past, things changed and I took a break from it. Well I’m back, sort of!

“Therapeutical Aids,” that’s what I call these toys, because sex and orgasm is supposed to be therapeutic, no?

I’m starting back at it with the O Force 2, male masturbator that boasts “five different intensities to produce potent stimulation” provided by two separate motors, the major difference from it’s predecessor the O Force. On first glance, the packaging is simple, sleek, and without the tacky dated pictures of porn stars with that hilariously fake orgasm face. Instructions are printed on the outside of the box with illustrations detailing the 3 AA batteries it requires, the 5 speeds, and that it’s waterproof. Simple enough.review-O-force-2-male-masturbator-2

Now, these are the only instructions, because when you open it, there is nothing inside the box except the device supported between two plastic cradles. Easy to remove, it’s pretty much ready for action, all you need to do is twist it open and insert the batteries. Fairly easy, unless you have some sort of substance on your hands that makes your hands slide preventing you from getting a firm grip. It’s a tight twist, and you’ll need that firm grip to twist it open and my talcum powder fingers didn’t quite work.

Once I did get it open, the batteries inserted, I screwed it back together tight, but not before noticing the single and double slotted grooves on the length end opening, and the same single and double ridges on the cap’s opening end. This indicating that it goes back together in a very specific way. Take note of that, don’t try forcing it, you’ll end up breaking it, and it won’t work. Simple, you’ll see what I mean when you have one of your own in your hands.

review-O-force-2-male-masturbator-8Simply hold down the button on the end and voila, it’s on. It’s easy to push, and the low rumble the O Force 2 emits on the first setting is rather soft. Incrementally the other levels graduate in stages to a fifth level that is kind of pulsing, alive almost, a very interesting feeling on my fingers, and it’s strong. I can’t wait to hear what the opinions will be like when my guy has a go with it for it’s intended purpose.

It’s made of strong, stretchy silicone, with ridges on the outside for grip. These ridges don’t translate to the inner cavity, it’s completely smooth inside. I measured the depth as three inches and there is a pronounced ridge on the inside that houses one of the motors that oscillates between the second for that “alive” feeling. So for you big guys out there who think you are going to ram yourself full hilt into this, you can forget that.

It’s designed to fit snug around those first three inches of your manhood and provide simulation to that portion of the penis. I have to admit it does feel very interesting inside, pleasurable to say the least, like a tight smooth glove. As for waterproof, well maybe, but water resistant for sure, and honestly, the price is pretty damn good for this kind of silicone and vibration.

You can take a look at the link below, but be sure catch me a bit later as I’ll be doing a follow up review, once my guy has had a chance to get down to business.

PODCAST with Mark Hughes on Pulling the Trigger

velvet steele transister podcast artwork

Hear me talk the TRUTH about life, love, happiness and how I got here. I talk of sex work, gender, employment, and my life as an activist as one of Vancouver’s fave transsexuals. I had the extreme pleasure to speak with Mark Hughes of Pulling the Trigger in the lead up to PRIDE. What a pleasure to actually express my opinion, something that has gotten me into some trouble, but I don’t truly care. To be a woman with all the right parts for me. It needs to be said. Some of you may like what I have to say, and some won’t……

 

 

Internet Communication and Networking

tidbits-internet-communication-networking

For me internet communication and networking is always “dicey” and for a multitude of reasons, particularly if you are a woman, and look a certain way. Like me, most people are always waiting and hoping for that one great deal or opportunity to come their way through the networking they do. Going to great lengths to keeping many profiles on sites most of us haven’t even heard of. Over the years I’ve learned to take it with a grain of salt, so I don’t expect much.

The multitude of carefully constructed and crafted sites that allow you to showcase your talents to prospective clients that are looking for your particular skill set. Along with your written details, these sites also provide you with the option to put your best foot forward for all to see; your profile picture.

This is the spot to shine and grab attention, to keep your photo and written details cohesive for a professional presentation that will have you being taken seriously. Enough so, that those who are making serious enquiries will take the time to read your info and truly absorb what your skills and credentials are all about.

Wacky Wednesday: ERIC STANTON Blast From The Past

eric-stanton-school-mistress

I LOVE art, and I am sure that’s no big surprise to most of you out there, who know me well, and those who don’t. I am very influenced but the provocation, the beauty, the colours, and the strength each artist is trying to convey.

One of my favourite blasts from the past is none other than Eric Stanton, Sept. 30/1926—March 17/1999 considered one oferic-stanton-baroness America’s best bondage and fetish illustrators, cartoonist, and comic-book artist, with the majority of his work depicting female dominance scenarios.

Sexy This Week: Discipline

mistress behind slave

Not all of us have it self ingrained, not all of us have what it takes to have someone do it for us or command us the ability to have it, or get it, and I’m not talking about the kind and ultimately with the same underlying context. What I am talking about is discipline, and that’s what’s sexy this week.

Wikipedia, my favourite resource defines it as;
the suppression of base desires, and is usually understood to be synonymous with restraint and self-control. Self-discipline is to some extent a substitute for motivation. Discipline is when one uses reason to determine the best course of action regardless of one’s desires, which may be the opposite of fun. Virtuous behaviour can be described as when one’s values are aligned with one’s aims: to do what one knows is best and to do it gladly. Continent behaviour, on the other hand, is when one does what one knows is best, but must do it by opposing one’s motivations. (more…)

Wacky Wednesday: Alien Egg Laying Sex Dildo

alien egg laying sex dildo

Yes for many of us we have a fixation on aliens and all things other worldly from outer space. We have art, movies, stories fact or fiction, themes, and industrial design out the yin-yang, so it goes without saying that it was just a matter of time that the fixation on things sexual with aliens would rear it’s colourful head.

Depictions in art, in all forms and mediums, furniture, costume, and hot hot erotica. Well now you have it in the form of an egg laying dildo. I am not sure where this lovely one comes from but I have a funny feeling it comes from my favourite freaky assed designers at Bad Dragon, where you’ll find just about anything that tickles your fancy, both inside and out, up and down, and round about.

Wacky Wednesday: 7 Completely Insane Sex Toy Designs

7 Completely Insane Sex Toys 1

Like the rest of the world things just keep on getting more and more bizarre in the world of sextoys. I am not sure if it is boredom or just truly the thrill seekers wanting newer and “better” items to stick in their orifices, or put their dicks into. I do see a lot of wacky things, and well, have done a lot of wacky things. I am not here to judge, if I did, I wouldn’t be doing some of the things I do in my life, such as advocacy and activism.

However the folks at www.cracked.com have come up with a humorous article detailing a few items up for grabs through some of the site I myself shop at.

Have a look, and you be the judges, I’ve even linked the photos to the home site for my dirty fun pictures of these lovelies! You just may find yourself stumped, and as I like to say when lecturing,

Listen, learn, and maybe laugh a little. I do!

Tidbits: Coitus Automobilus

Coitus Automobilus 2

The sex appeal of the automobile has been known for a long time, especially by men. Automobiles designed by men, built for men, driven mostly by men, men. Women weren’t really in the equation except when the car was referred to as a “family car”, the vehicle of choice for growing families, which we know is and was serious advertising bullshit. It wasn’t until the Ford Motor Company finally clued in with the introduction of their pony car, the Mustang, introduced in 1964 as a car for women and heavily marketed with slick and sexy advertising campaigns. A car that boasted simplicity, yet stylish, subtly powerful, and adored by 1964 mustangmany, women that is in the start.

Car appeal has always had people of all sexes in it’s grip. From the moment we first sit in a car we are groomed for the day of privilege we somehow believe we are entitled to, the day we get our driver’s license. That day when we can hop behind the wheel of an automobile and drive our family, friends, selves, and lovers to destinations of our choosing.
