Quick question: Do you like porn? Most women would answer this question with “No…., it’s disgusting”. Maybe some are lying, maybe some have truly never seen a porn. Today, mainstream porn neglects the core of erotic art by overwhelming us with dirty short films with people acting in an exaggerating way, missing any realistic storyline/ plot. People like Erika Lust, a female porn director from Barcelona, started a more female-friendly revolution in the porn industry by producing erotic movies of high-quality, focusing on both female and male desires.

Female sexual desires are often manipulated for the pleasure of men, according to social female stereotypes we choose – if we are vamps or nuns. Soft or strong, demanding or submissive, sexy or sweet. If our sex life would be as boring as these categorized way of thinking, let`s better skip it completely.

Rather this is only one way of visualizing erotic stories aimed to inspire our sensual mind.
Transcending the viewer into dreamy erotic utopias is what Alphachanneling, Monica Kim Garza and quite a few other artists, dealing with erotic art on social media, actually do.

“I find sensuality to be such a pure and honest way to experience this world. Pink fading to red, sweet and salty, leathery and musky, supple and firm, fast, weightless, dark, deep, rhythmic, pulsing, warm, milky…. to me these are a few of the wonderfully existential qualities of life,” the artist behind Alphachanneling mentioned in an interview with VICE.

Flowers and plants are used as symbols expressing how all things are nourished and harmonized by attraction and a certain kind of beauty, which is only defined by our own imagination and our feelings. Blossoming and blooming plants or ripe fruits stand for fertility since decades in art. Dark skinned women, relaxing on their bed or having a great time under tropical palm trees: all paintings by Monica Kim Garza transmit a pure vitality and sensuality – lust for life and love.

A different approach was chosen by the artist behind Petites Luxures, an erotic minimal illustration project launched on Instagram. Only a few thin black lines are necessary to turn you on, the art looks as simple as this strategy. “Did you see my Pinocchio?” – this sketch shows only the back of a woman’s butt, sitting there with a wooden doll’s face buried in her lap.

Petites Luxures combines erotic fantasies with ironic notes proving that sex and humour fit easily together.

Combining flora and fauna, blurring shades of red and blue colors and the wide selection of Kamasutra sex-positions, artists have found a way to invent a new perspective on porn. Liberated from monotonous tit-butt-blow-suck-ram pictures. And this revolution of erotic art totally hits the spirit of modern times. Latest since uber-art critic Jerry Saltz made Alphachanneling the star of a column in 2014 (“Is There Great Art on Instagram?”) the focus on those sensual perspectives grew.

Just to check again: Do you like porn? 😉
