Erotica is creative content contributed by the community. Erotica is differentiated from articles by being artistic, stimulating and sexy.
XXX SEX PARADE is a website for music that explores the intersection of technology and eroticism. The idea has less to do with sexuality than it does the imagery, sound, and sensation that would arouse an erotic state.
The mandala seemed like the appropriate tool for examining erotic imagery in a way that would arouse an erotic state, yet would also induce a calm meditative examination of the image contents. Nearly all of the images in the set have been appropriated from internet sources. None of these images are for sale, they are simply recontextualizations of existing imagery, sometimes pornographic, sometimes culturally relevant, but all designed as a feast for the eyes.

My oil paintings "Star Girl" and "Star Girl Training" are an ongoing series where I look into the themes of proceeding on the path to enlightenment. The Star Girl has her origins in several different threads - the dakinis (sky dancers) of eastern religions, angels of western religions, and the Star card of the Tarot deck. It is also a depiction of sacred feminine energy.
In the oil painting "Star Girl," ( 40" x 30" ) she is looking to her guiding star. In her hands she is holding a stellated dodecahedron (a 12 sided Platonic solid that represented "spirit" to the ancient Greeks) that extends its planes to form a star, as discovered by Johan Kepler.
In the oil painting "Star Girl Training," ( 30" x 40" ) several star girls are in the process of learning to fly - racing up their teacher's arm (see details of painting as it was in progress.) They are overlooked by the benevolent gaze of their teacher, who holds her hand out in case they should fall.

The Supreme Court struck down the sodomy laws for every state at once not too long ago.
Some of those sodomy laws sounded pretty, well, hot. The text that came out of those steamy law making sessions included "un-natural carnal copulation" (Louisiana) and "sexual gratification involving the manual penetration of the vagina by a person of the same sex" (Arkansas). Who knew these men were such erotic poets?
Alexis Baden-Mayer, a lawyer, artist, and activist explores what these sodomy laws made criminal, with these two beautiful, happy + sexy paintings.
