Art is a wonderful medium for portraying and exploring human sexuality. The problem with sex in art is that it often spend more time expressing the sex than the sexual and does nothing to investigate our relationship with our bodies, sexuality and each other.
At least pornography is honest in its intent. When I see art of any form, be that photography, painting, sculpture or any other medium that allows the sex to become more important than the art I feel let down. I find that many so-called practitioners of erotic are to be particularly disingenuous in knowingly and cynically creating works that pretends to be art yet is actually porn.
Art is beautiful as is human sexuality. The key to keeping it beautiful is honesty.
And all that from seeing the rather nice picture that you can see here.
