Some Sexy Art for the Day of Love

February 14, 2013

Oh, Valentine’s Day, you bring us flowers, chocolates, and lots of love. I would like to add some art to this day of love. While pin-up girls may be the first or only thing that comes to mind when erotic art is brought up, erotic art was being made even before the Greeks started painting on walls and pots. (Next time you go to an art museum, look more closely at the Greek art.) While the Greeks saw their erotic art as a representation of dominance and social superiority, there have been artists that were and are condemned for work deemed as “inappropriate.” Regardless, I have collected some images for your enjoyment (or discomfort, whichever the case may be).

These images are purposely erotic, but there is also the argument that all art is erotic. Art reaches into the depths of who we are and tries to get something out of us. It works to stimulate us and connect us to something bigger than ourselves. I suppose, in that sense, all art is erotic.

Look. Listen. Respond.
