ArtVantage (4) – Huge Genitalia

July 14, 2018

The theme of this 4th part of the series is so suggesting, that some of you might have missed it since I came along with the ArtVantage-idea about a year ago!?

How tempting for a sexually inclined artist to generate images featuring humongous penises, or so my thinking at least. In the artistic realm anything is thinkable and allegorisable. Yet for reaching beyond a mere disproportion (huge genitalia meets small(er) person), which could easily be rather inexpressive, the artist always needs a good/smart story behind his image or series of images for gaining a certain impact on the beholder (generating arousal that is).

Let´s see. A most obvious depiction of a larger-than-life cock may, after all, not reach too far from the real world:

 

Also a reasonable exaggeration would do the trick. For when the image arouses and wows by stirring men´s #1 yearning but few peers in the real world!

 

Yet art is best at true fantasy. And it can be as simple as this:

The message in three words: I Love Penis! – By the way, you can find photoshopped images in different variations showing this kind of scene. It´s just too tempting to express this thought visually, isn´t it.

Again, it will be more intriguing to tell a simple tale while using such proportions (two samples out of a „strip“ I found):

 

It certainly is a different story from the all-male „I Love Penis“ drawing above! In addition, I consciously wrote „genitalia“ in the headline… But I guess this still remains a male fantasy:

Finally an image I very much enjoy because of its creativity and style. Well, it is just an ad (promoting the use of condoms), but it summarizes what art can achieve by highlighting huge genitalia (okay, rather penile here) – a stunning level of erotic phantasm!

Featured artists: Jacobson, Kovik, Tayyar Ozkan, unknown artists for riding the giant penis and the condom-ad poster.

ArtVantage (3) – Collages (?)

April 24, 2018

The title of this ArtVantage post (collages) is not really correct I fear, but it may be not wrong either. If these images were composed of photos, one could speak of collages, but for this kind of drawn arrangement I miss a fitting term. Yet who cares in view of this series of a very particular sexual fantasy!?

Again I present to you visual compositions, well-arranged drawings which display many details in one piece of art. This time in a free style way and not “gridded” in a geometric pattern like with the mandalas I introduced in the preceding ArtVantage post.

I love this serial for many reasons (it´s not the big boobs, I prefer small breasts); let me list some info and peculiarities I noticed about this artwork:

  • the artist, going by the name of Kovik, is probably male
  • his work was published in the adult (comic) magazine-series Blowjob
  • he created all this work in the year 2003
  • most remarkable is the fact that Kovik shows us a womens-fantasy which in turn really is a mens-fantasy (my interpretation and given that Kovik is a man)
  • we see women being totally in power over spurting (or oozing) penises, – the more text (balloon) is integrated, the clearer this becomes
  • the series undergoes a certain development: from images with almost no text at all (A-Fayplay) to a drawing with a 50:50 ratio of text and image (H-Titslatte)
  • the women featured in these drawings are often screen-icons from the 1950s and 1960s and they all feature very large breasts
  • almost all penises we discover are long and/or huge specimen and many of them are intact (uncircumcised); one arrangement of the set even makes this its topical subject (G-Foreskinjizz)
  • almost every penis we see is spurting (thick) cum!

The images celebrate pretty women, huge cocks, ejaculations and loads of semen. Enjoy these comic-style yet naturalistic compositions of spurting dicks wetting women literally calling the shots (click on thumbnail to enlarge)!

ArtVantage (2) – Mandala

December 17, 2017

One definite advantage in pictorial and decorative arts is the option to create visual compositions which follow a pattern or grid, – keyword mandala.

Wikipedia is defining a mandala this way: A mandala (literally „circle“) is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. In common use, mandala has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe.

With this post I want to hint you to some beautifully composed images, which could be seen as mandalas for the sexual realm. Nothing more appropriate than creating this kind of artwork as illustration for a contemporary edition of the famous Kama Sutra (sex) manual.

The Kama Sutra is an ancient Indian Hindu text written by Vatsyayana. It is widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behaviour in Sanskrit literature. (quote Wikipedia)

It is quite obvious that any illustration for this groundbreaking seven-part work, which originally was issued without any images (!), could ideally be a composition representing symmetry and/or following a pattern. For both artistic achievements (mandala & text in this case) not only share the same cultural background, they also perfectly complement each other content-wise.

Even the fun and comic approach of Benito Jacovitti (whose collection of hilarious sketches were published in an artbook titled Kamasutra) can be regarded as a mandala, a circular symbol representing the universe. The universe of sexual union in this case.

Now, enjoy the very beautiful drawings by Georges Pichard. He „seriously“ illustrated but one edition of the Kama Sutra and generated these sort of mandalas, of which each also represents a microcosm (of an aspect) in the universe of human sexuality (click to enlarge):

ArtVantage (1) – Masculine

October 14, 2017

Nothing better than to start this new series with an homage to a great artist! Actually I did not plan to, but the release of a movie about his life this year (check out the dates here) gave me the idea.

I am talking about Touko Valio Laaksonen, better known by his pseudonym Tom of Finland, of whom cultural historian Joseph W. Slade said that he was the “most influential creator of gay pornographic images”!

Indeed he was and his style is very distinct and recognizable. Please read about his life at this Wikipedia page and do follow the links to his art-work pages noted there!

Also check about the movie I mentioned at this Wiki-page, – mind you it aint no porno, but a revealing biopic!

Toukos impact on the scene was profound. Many artists after him dared to create uninhibited gay themed pornographic art which celebrated the very masculine male: full of muscle, stamina and xtra-large genitalia!

I offer you a small collection of art(ists) in „Toms footsteps“:

Tom was drawing men clean-shaved! Following artists implemented more than the obligatory moustache!

Toms genre preference has been hunks in uniform and leather boots. Yet he also featured Cowboys, Sailors and Construction Workers. As do contemporary artists, for example:

Toms men have been equal in size, looks and endowment (when presented in groups of two or more). Later artists seem to favour the senior/junior arrangement:

Certainly the art of Tom of Finland paved the way for numerous gay themed comics to emerge, telling hard-core stories in every imaginable way:

Featured artists in chronological order:
Joseph, Just A. Buoy, Pan Hanks, Valentine, Josman.
