Erotic Art: Clive Barker's Imagining Man Project

I intend to use this blog to also share interesting cultural news and expressions of positive sexuality.

One problem I have found as the "art director" for the Imps is that it is damn hard to find male nude photography to be used in the art we make for events. Of course we can't afford to buy art, so we do what we can with what we can find or make for cheap/free. I'll try to remember to take some pics of some of the wonderful art our community has put together in the next couple weeks.

I had a book of female nudes from the last 30+ years that I obtained in NYC a few years ago that was full of beautiful and interesting images of women of all shapes and ages and expressions. I let the Imps cut it up and use the images. And it isn't hard to find female nude photos online. But it is difficult to find male nudes that aren't pornography (not that I have anything against pornography, but it isn't that interesting from an art perspective).

My son recently shared that Clive Barker, the well-known fantasy/horror writer and painter, also has a male nude photography series (he truly is a renaissance man!). It's very interesting. Lots of lovely cocks to be seen, as well as very interesting textures and designs on the bodies. You can check it out here...Imagining Man Project.
