Erotic art & the experimentation pathway
Hello art enthusiasts!
Have you been daring today?
I am a high sensation seeker when I create erotic art. I am also an experimentalist. The more sexually charged art I create the happier I get. I love to stimulate my senses and indulge my hungry mind when creating depth of connection in my paintings depicting human vulnerability, heart, and physical openness.
Does anyone else feel like this? I bet you do. Are you willing to admit it though?
Who among us reading my expressions is willing to take the same leap? To jump off that conservative cliff and say: Yes, I want to free my inner sensual being – yes, I want to live as a full sexual being unafraid to unleash the part of myself I keep hidden.
Let your sexual light show
Recently, while participating in a figure drawing session, I was delighted and unabashed when an attending model was comfortable enough to cuddle up on my lap. She was genuine, honest, and painted red. She was beautiful and so artistic in her authentic self-expression. My creative senses were fully engaged and stimulated. It felt like inspiration in action and a chance to elevate my art – to experiment painting erotic connection in such a way that reveals a new level of human depth and inner spirit only found inside these kinds of raw and open moments of experimentation coupled with a bit of risk. And by risk I mean, the willingness to shine your light and allow your true essence – your vulnerability – to show.
Lately, I have been observing many of the erotic art and various kinksters or artists sharing new works as a way of expressing their innermost fantasies. I find this quite fascinating. Some of these very talented artists are so creative and exceptional. I just love to look at other artists' 3D erotic images so full of life and energy. These works are so full of soulful expansion while also brimming with stimulating elements that are skillfully depicted throughout each artful expression. Some of this work out there is so good you can't help but feel moved and alive in its presence. This sensory driven response is incredibly inspiring. This kind of inner inspiration can fill your being with a love and appreciation that embraces everything that connects us to each other, to ourselves, and to our surroundings. It is energy renewal, and I can't believe how good that feels as an artist, an intuitive living soul, and a man.
Some of the 3D art is hardcore and extreme in its portrayal of masculine and feminine desire peaking in sensual communication to the viewer. Some artists creating 3D fantasy art take many creative liberties in order to disproportionate the figures to render extreme variances in size. The results can provide bigger than life beautiful women engaged with a small man with large genitals or images of beastly looking men graced with an oversized penis with smaller women. These works are magnificent examples of creative risks artists take to share the essence of physicality and inner sensuality.
The fantasy aspect of erotic art is titillating too. There is something so delicious about watching two sensual people engaging in physical touch. The acts can be soft, more intense, filled with humor, or wrapped with serious expression. Engaging in touch and physical play through sex is something that resonates with all of us. It connects all of us in some way.
Fantasy art tends to reveal an artist's desires. How can it not? The vulnerable depictions arise from a deep place of inspiration, thought, feeling, and direct knowing through experience. What are some of your fantasies? Imagine walking through a gallery celebrating the art of fantasy through the vehicle of eroticism. Imagine feeling the energy driving through your own being while enjoying magnificent works of art designed to lift you up and connect you even more deeply to yourself and others. When is the last time you celebrated your inner fantasies? Erotic art can open pathways to enhanced sexual confidence, because if you can look at it openly and then talk about it (or even freely think about it), you can begin to explore sensuality more easily with a sense of fun and joy. This amazing energy can then permeate your entire life – even just cooking dinner can become a sensual experience when you are tapped into your inner sexual light. Sensual energy is creative energy. It is heart energy. It is life giving and affirming.
At the Erotic core is connection
There is a prevailing pattern in erotic works of art: And that is connection. Many of the works, artistic selfies, sculptures, paintings, watercolors, photography, pencil illustrations, and 3D portrayals seem to reach toward the viewer in an effort to share the essence of desire, love, connection, and sensation. Looking at these works of art seems to invite a certain sympatico with others and a chance to enter the world of like-minded souls craving touch, life, and even love. I know I feel this way. And connection is the underpinning of all my works. So why do we sometimes resist this very thing that we all want? We actually can sabotage consciously and unconsciously the flow of connection by criticizing ourselves and others, looking away, or blocking positive feelings that bubble up when given the chance to reach toward our own inner light while simultaneously seeing it in others and in the art that is around us. And when it comes to sex and sexuality and being free to express this aspect of ourselves, we can freeze. It is this very resistance that can block the flow of this amazing and radiating energy that warms the senses, heals, opens the heart, and awakens the sensual flower that blooms inside all of us. Erotic art is just one of many ways to begin to explore these aspects of our own nature and to feel safe in that exploration.
A few inner musings to close
I am experimenting more and more with my erotic portrayals using more than a single subject. I am searching for deeper connection, and my erotic art is one way to peel back the layers of my own inner essence and barriers. There is a freedom in erotica that is simply divine. Erotica doesn't have to be overly explicit or disrespectful to uncork inner workings of one's sexual mind and heart either. It can simply be a quiet rendering of one's deepest longings brought to the fore.
When is the last time you gave yourself permission to feel sexy? When is the last time you gave yourself permission to breathe in life and just unleash your inner fire?
This is the sensual energy that drives our natures. And it is fabulous!
