    Meet Mel Odom, the artist who's gorgeous, homoerotic art defined an era

    All illustrations by Mel Odom. http://www.mel-odom.com/

    If you're old enough to remember the gay erotic magazine Blueboy, you are certainly familiar with the gorgeous, godlike illustrations of Mel Odom. Sensuous, streamline, at once untouchable, yet moltenly erotic, his art was everywhere in the mid 1970s. From Blueboy to book covers to beautiful greeting cards at hip gay shops (now tragically gone) across the country.

    Mel Odom at Daniel Clooney Fine Art

    Well, if you happen to live in the New York City area, treat yourself to an exhibtion of his work running January 10 - February 13 at the Daniel Clooney Fine Art gallery in Chelsea. The exhibition opens on January 10 with a conversation with one of the greatest writers in American literature, Edmund White, for whose book, "Nocturnes," Odom illustrated a cover in 1987.

  4. The Signs and Symptoms of Porn Addiction

    The Signs and Symptoms of Porn Addiction

    In a recent article on the Men's Health UK website, writer Annie Hayes lays out the warning signs, consequences and therapy steps for porn addiction.

    Men's Health Porn Addiction

    She writes:

    "In the same way a dependence on alcohol or drugs unleashes a tidal wave of physical, psychological and social difficulties, so too does an obsession with X-rated screen time. While ‘porn addiction’ isn’t actually a recognised disorder, the men (and women) who feel they have no control over their browser history would no doubt say otherwise.

    "“There are definition issues with it,” says Anand Patel, GP and sexual health specialist. “Some people define it as more of a compulsion; ritualistic behaviour. An itch you have to scratch and there’s no rational reason why, like people who have to wash their hands three times otherwise the plane’s going to crash. It can be a self-soothing thing for anxiety..."

    The Porn (Not Porn) of Ancient Pompeii

    2000 years ago, there was no shame associated with a healthy sex life. At least not in the sense that people are still slut-shamed today.

    Sex was considered part of a full public life. Brothels flourished, and within them–as well as in private homes–erotic art was on full, glorious, display.

    We have the art to admire today, thanks to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius on August 24, 79 A.D., which burred the city of Pompeii, thus preseriving the art.

    Suburban Baths Pompeii
    Above: In The Suburban Baths Pompeii a mural has been unearthed which depicts a threesome with female-to-male-to-female anal penetration aka pegging.

    Related: Dildos, Strap-Ons, and Pegging: An Anal History

    Here, pulled from various websites, with more where available, are a few examples of erotic art, mostly from brothels, but ending with a releif sculpture from a private home. In the brothels the art often served as a menu, where clients could peruse the sex acts available.

  6. VIDEO: Fetish Flashback - Duran Duran's "The Chauffeur"

    VIDEO: Fetish Flashback - Duran Duran's "The Chauffeur"

    Easing into the new year with a little video flashback. Sexy, cool, and jaw-droppingly chic, Duran Duran's 1980 video for "The Chauffeur" from their "Rio" album is the definition of "erotic."

    Heavily influenced by the fahion photography of Helmut Newton, the video features a topless Perri Lister, who some may know as the former girlfriend (with whom she had a son) of Billly Idol. (That's her in his "White Wedding" video, among others.)

    From Wikipedia:

    "Directed by Ian Emes, a British animator and film director from Birmingham known for his work with Pink Floyd, The Chauffeur is one of two non-single tracks on Rio to have its own music video. None of the band appear in the video. It is a moody black-and-white piece inspired in part by Liliana Cavani's 1974 film, The Night Porter, and the photography of Helmut Newton. A woman in an erotic costume is driven in an Austin Princess limousine by a uniformed chauffeur. Elsewhere, another woman dresses herself carefully in lingerie and walks through the streets of London towards a rendezvous in an abandoned multi-storey car park. The chauffeur, (Perri Lister), then removes her chauffeur uniform to reveal a topless blonde in an open-bust corset and performs a sensuous dance to the accompaniment of the instrumental coda of the song — clearly a homage to Charlotte Rampling's topless "Dance of the Seven Veils" in The Night Porter."

    Below a couple more fetish-tinged Perri Lister videos, "White Wedding" and, testing your 80s' pop trivia knowledge, "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" by her short-lived pop grop Boomerang, which featured two former Kid Creole & the Coconuts dancers.

  7. These Girls Give "Sex-Positive" a Whole New Meaning

    These Girls Give "Sex-Positive" a Whole New Meaning

    If you've not yet come across, or should we say cum across, the Twitter feeds for London porn stars Sophie Anderson @SophieASlut and Rebecca More @more_milf, get on them. (They'd love it!)

    Sophie Anderson on Twitter

    These partners in crime, proudly call themselves "dick destroyers," and regulary hit the streets looking for cock. When this dynamic dick destroying duo get together, it's nothing but trouble.

    Frankly, "cock" never sounded so good as so laciviously enuciated by a British accent: Classy and downright filthy at the same time.

    Sophie Anderson on Twitter

    What is so fun about these gung-ho (emphasis on "ho"!) ladies' tweets is the delivery. At once pneumatic, hilarious and over-the-top, for lesser stars, the delivery might fall flat, but from Sophie and Rebecca, it becomes utter comic genius.

    With tweets titled "We got dick, cancel the Uber," "fucking let’s get out and slag out in town" and "Good morning sunshine come lick my cunt" you'll be binge watching from the first. Trust.

    Sophie Anderson on Twitter

    And don't miss the lipsynch tribute by two male fans in Spain. Too funny.

    We'll leave you with this short post for now, but we hope to be back with a little Q&A with these ladies in the new year. Enjoy, and share.

    And thanks to Chi Chi LaRue for tuning us on the Sophie and Rebecca! •

  10. Sex & Body Postive "Shape of Beauty" Series Launches

    Sex & Body Postive "Shape of Beauty" Series Launches

    Just in from AVN News, comes the announcment of a new erotic series titled "Shape of Beauty." Devoted to showcasing and mirroring sex positive imagery and fanstasies of its fans and viewers.

    AVN Shape of Beauty

    From writer Robert Neuwave:

    Adult Time, the new web destination created by Bree Mills and Gamma Films, has announced the release of a new online erotica series, "Shape of Beauty," featuring stories that celebrate the well-rounded plus-size talents of adult’s most alluring BBW stars. 

    The first episode, which launches today exclusively at shapeofbeauty.com and is free to watch for all Gamma Films members, treats fans to the considerable charms of curvy goddess Karla Lane as she lights up a hot boy/girl scene with partner Alex Duca. The full site is slated to launch in the spring of 2019. 

    "It was truly an honor to perform in the first scene for this amazing new project… I’ve been performing for 13 years, but I definitely felt the pressure to do a great job and represent plus-size performers to a company that’s new to the genre,” said Lane. “I’m excited to see the overwhelming outpouring of support from fans and models even before the official launch date.” 

    Shape of Beauty

    Series producer Bree Mills brought "Shape of Beauty" to life with two cross-continental crews: one in Montreal, directed by François and Freddy Licious and led by a team that includes mainstream fashion videographers and BBW enthusiasts; the other in LA, comprised of Mills and members of her core Gamma Films crew members. 

    "Some of the most beautiful women on earth are plus-size models, and they have been marginalized for far too long within our industry,” said Mills. “I was extremely moved after directing last year's 'The Weight of Infidelity' featurette with Karla, not only because of her beauty, sexual performance, and acting skills, but because of the outpouring of support and interest from other curvy performers and their fans.
