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……

 

 

Sexy This Week; Sexuality

velvet-steele-topless-by-rick-legal-censored

We all have it, and we all present it, whether you like it or not, are conscious of it, or are in full on denial and trying very hard to suppress it. It comes naturally, and for those in control of it and enjoying it to their full advantage, it’s hot, empowering, and a turn on, sexuality and that’s what sexy this week.

As a woman who is transsexual, I am bombarded daily from, for lack of a better term, “nut-jobs” who are telling me that my presentation of my sexuality married with my sexual self, is a little overt and to tone it down a few notches. Well I have a few choice words for you folks;

Tidbits: Old Age Sex and Sexuality

Sex-Neon-Sign

It’s always ASTOUNDED me how the general populace for the most part think that sex and sexuality stops at a certain age or time in a person’s life, whether it be from meno/manopause, illness, age, death, etc. I could go on here, but I think you get the point. The truth is, it doesn’t, and doesn’t have to either if your libido is waning. Society seems to place that unnecessary belief or as I believe “burden,” on those who are still sexual or displaying their sexuality as though it was a bad thing to be shunned and abhorred by all.

The Crotch Watch with Video to Prove it!! LOL

 

 

 

You know what I am talking about: the coy glances to the crotches of a man that has caught your eye, quick darting glances as often as a person blinks throughout the day. Its human nature and for those of us that find ourselves in a state of perpetual heat, these are the actions that happen. For most men, low cut waist lines that dip to extremes like the blouses of fashionably dressed women, is just not an option. Their package is their pride and joy, and putting the goods on display through pants that caress the bulges, carrying the meat and potatoes, housing the family jewels, is a learned art that takes time to develop. You have to know what fashion labels to wear with finesse, to wet that appetite of the viewer, a table to be set for a feast soon to be had.

Tidbits; Opinion: Focus on ‘high-risk lifestyle’ shifts blame from violent perpetrators to their victims

red lips

Here is an opinion article courtesy of the folks at Living in Community by Tricia barnes; a non-profit I am working with here in Vancouver on issues of sex work. This article details the recent murder of two sex workers found murdered in New Westminster and the continued stigmas that the media and other organizations continually place on one of the oldest professions. Good job ladies!

“In separate incidents on Aug. 12 and Aug. 25, two women were found dead in their apartments in the same New Westminster building. Both women were believed to have worked as escorts
