There's art you get and there's art you don't get. While we can go back and forth on what, where, when, how, and why we get some art and not others, one thing we can agree on is that the nude body is one of the greatest works of art ever. And when it's portrayed by a great artist like photographer Maggie West, the nude form can look quite awesome. In her upcoming book "23," she photographs diverse subjects to celebrate all of the various nude forms.
Arya and Lily love their teacher just so much....
I admire anyone - model, pornstar, or regular average person - who is willing to take their clothes off in a public place. You, my friend, are bolder and braver than I will ever be. But Sheri Chiu has taken it to a whole other level by not only being nude in public, but also by being nude in an NYC Subway Station, climbing on signs and bridges, and laying down on a tarp. While this is all incredibly sexy, I really hope there was plenty of hand sanitizer on this photo shoot.
Here's a question for you, why isn't there a Merkin Appreciation Month?
Shower + Singing + Nudity = Awesome
If you have aquaphobia, then you have an extreme fear of drowning, water, gasping for air, or basically anything that someone can find scary about water. Sure, we are mostly made up of water and we live on a planet that is a majority water, so some might find this fear irrational. Water can be down right terrifying, but water can also be extremely sexy, especially when a nude woman is floating around in it.
Alexandra Rubinstein wants to change up how the mainstream media talks about one of my favorite topics: oral sex.
For all the things I wish my pants where able to do: clean themselves, walk to the hamper and jump in, and most of all make my body look better than it actually is, I have never had the desire, the wish, the dream that my pants could play the drums.
Normally when someone says “collage,” you think about a piece of poster board in a dorm room of hot guys' faces with random sayings or something far, far worse: a collage of muscle cars. Yes, I think we’ve all dabbled in the art of collage, making some pretty awful stuff. But when done right, collages can be pretty awesome. Take the work of Zoe Ligon.
All of the great films, no matter the genre, the actors, the style, or the length, have one thing in common: a strong message.
Sex Dolls, sometimes known as Love Dolls, are designed to be the closest thing to a human possible. But have you ever wondered if a sex doll had emotions or could express emotions? Well, an artist named June Korea decided to snap some pictures and see if a sex doll could feel in a series called “Still Lives: Eva”.
Have you ever noticed that some fruits look like certain lady parts?
As I have said many times before and will continue to say until air no longer escapes my lungs, great art makes us look at something we’ve seen a million times before in a different way. It’s a wonderful feeling when that happens, but sometimes art wants me to look at something different, and honestly, I just don’t want to. Take German artist Jörg Düsterwald—he decided to take nude women and paint them so they blend in with the scenery.
I’m pretty sure we all remember the excitement of getting our first set of watercolor paints. You know, the one in the plastic case with eight different paints that would all end up being the same color after only a few attempts at creating masterpieces. While the majority of us never made anything worth hanging on the fridge, artist Fahren Feingold created some pretty incredible watercolor nudes.
I have often heard that the No. 1 one complaint people have against watching anything Shakespeare is trouble understanding the language. But I have a very strong feeling that everyone would gladly put aside any problems they have with Shakespeare to see it performed in the nude.
