Twice in one week I have had a strange topic of conversation arise because of a certain theme that flows through much of my erotic art.
The first was a simple question put to me of why I do so much art with a girl on girl theme.
This question came from a male who happened to be gay in the flaming sort of way.
I told him that I bill most of it as “lesbian” because that is how people will usually identify with it.
In reality I think of it as bisexual girls.
The reason I think that way is partially the same reason I create so much artwork that revolves around it.
In my life MOST girls I have known closely and intimately have been bisexual.
The minority girls identify as lesbian and straight.
That is not a recent thing. It is lifelong.
I have no clue what sexual preference someone I randomly chat with on the street may be.
I don’t care one bit what preference the gal or dude checking my groceries at the store may have.
I’m talking about people I actually know.
People I have had dinner with more than twice. People who have been in my home.
Almost all who happened to be female also happened to be bisexual.
I’m a bisexual girl magnet I guess.
So… I think of girls firstly as bisexual. I therefore do not think of them as lesbian or straight until it has been told to me.
It is an subconscious assumption from life experience.
Most people I think consider people as straight until they find out different, unless the person in question heavily advertises it through social clues.
Clues like being “flaming” gay as I said above.
The mannerisms and ways of talking/dressing advertise his preferences for him.
So mostly I know bisexual girls.
Mostly I hang out with females.
Mostly I am influenced by them and also have better access to female+female type situations for modeling purposes.
In general… men don’t like to get naked and be in front of a camera so much as women either.
When they do they are often shy or restrained once naked.
Believe it or not… men have way worse body issues than women once naked usually.
I’ve been stripping people down for photos, art, tattoos, piercings, and a few other odd things for a long time.
Women are simply more comfortable in general.
So… I have a ready supply of females who have no problem touching other females.
(at least in comparison to males)
Thus… girly girl art.
The answer was accepted by the guy who said he wished I would do some guy+guy art.
Since he was an attractive little guy I told him I would be very happy to have him pose for me if he had a likewise attractive partner for said modeling.
He was not interested.
I did mention that there was more than one strange conversation on this topic I believe.
The second one was much more interesting.
A girl came into my place of work and complimented me profusely on my paintings.
She regularly read/follows my art blog.
(I’m hoping she doesn’t know of this blog)
After many compliments and telling me all about which pieces she liked the most she pretty much straight up asked if I’d like to watch her have sex with my wife.
I told her I would be interested in her modeling, but sex with my wife wasn’t needed for such things.
“Wouldn’t you like to watch though?” was her reply.
I said I don’t usually get into such things unless I am involved personally, and that I doubted my wife would take kindly to me setting her up on a blind sex date with someone she had never even seen before to boot.
The girl seemed confused and a tad embarrassed. I tried to sooth her via explaining that I wasn’t a guy who thought lesbians were hot and had no voyeuristic fantasies of watching girls get it on.
She wanted to know how come I made that sort of art then.
I explained basically in the same way I did to the guy.
This chick still had no clue.
She said something like “So if I want to do this I have to have sex with you too?”
I was offended.
I said something like “No, you can pose, I can use you for certain things, but no sex with anybody is involved, and what makes you think I would want to have sex with you?”
Her face turned apple red with splotches.
She replied with an “I don’t know, I just thought you did.” to which I replied “I don’t even know you.”
Then she proceeded to tell me how I have done all her tattoos while pulling bits of her clothes aside to show me.
I explained that I don’t remember people well, but did recall the tattoos once I saw them.
She seemed appeased, but still flustered and embarrassed.
I told her about a form I have online for people who wish to model.
I told her to fill it out if she was still interested.
She said she would and left.
As of yet… I haven’t received any form from her.
Now with those fun stories said I will add this to the why of girly+girly art.
1) I find women beautiful. I find them beautiful in ones, twos, threes, and mores.
2) My wife prefers girly+girly art over girly+guy art and I like it when my wife enjoys my art.
3) There is a small market for such art and there is almost zero for my own preferences in the art world.
I am a lover of group sex and fantasy scenarios. Not many people will buy art depicting orgy like scenes. Even those who partake in such things are not seeking to hang such scenes on their bedroom walls.
I am not a hobby artist.
Only hobby artists (or those born with silver spoons) may create without any care at all of sales.
Simply because art is my sole bread and butter I am bound to keep the consumer in mind at least a little bit.
Erotic themed art is a very tiny market.
It isn’t for the living room. It is mostly for bedrooms (some even call it bedroom art) and it is for the den, the adult game room, the man cave, and sadly even those places rarely.
In creating erotic themed art I have found myself in a tiny niche.
Making it smaller would make it impossible to succeed.
I’d end up having to do frigg’n Christmas card illustrations to make ends meat.
Prints of the artwork shown above can be found here.
The title for work is “Suck My Kiss.”
