Mark Mulroney considers sex and gore as primary means of defiance, and accordingly, guts, exaggerated genitalia, bloody wounds, and well-endowed pin-up girls take center stage in his surrealistic, comic-style paintings and sculptures. By way of explaining the series, Mulroney, who is not known for his discretion, says, “I just relied on my usual methods: put a boner on something or make it bleed.”

Sri Lankan-born, Sydney-based artist Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran creates rough-edged, vibrant, new-age idols that are at once enticing and disquieting. He experiments with form and scale in the context of figurative sculpture to explore politics of sex, the monument, gender and religion. Self-portraits make frequent appearances and the dual presence of male and female organs suggest gender fluid realms of new possibilities.

DELICATE WATERCOLORS BY ILARIA CLARI

Turin-based Ilaria Clari‘s delicate work includes genitals, soggy breasts, sex, masturbation and orgies seasoned by a feminine lightness, a dominant pink color and a sense of resigned calm. Sad and lonely vaginas are disturbed by restless penises oblong and intrusive and almost alien human figures masturbate without enjoyment. Watercolors in their playful nature reflect lucidly on the nature of couples and motherhood.

The top 10 of good sex in fiction

Posted from The Citrus Report

Oh, don’t act like this doesn’t interest you. It does. You don’t have a heartbeat if it doesn’t. The Guardian compiled their Top 10 of good sex in fiction, and the list is sort of what you would expect.

Roman Sommerville, an author, wrote the list, and had this to say: “Most adults are interested in sex. I am. My father was, and said as much to me when he was 92. I suspect that you are too. You’re reading this after all. Being so central to much of our lives and indeed life itself, it is a valid and important topic for fiction.”

A few that we know:

10. Platform by Michel Houellebecq
6. Dracula by Bram Stoker
5. Lady Chatterley’s Lover by DH Lawrence
1. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (1955)
