Hot Calamari: The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife
Posted by Richard Conniff on February 14, 2014
I spotted this one today in The Guardian and it struck me as a strange, but suitable, image for Valentine’s Day. Here’s how The Guardian describes it:
In Hokusai’s masterpiece of the Japanese erotic art genre known as Shunga, a woman diving for pearls is being pleaured by two octopuses. The larger of them enfolds her pale, naked body in its tentacles as it performs cunnilingus, its subtle attentions releasing rapture.
Check out the rest of the article for one writer’s selection of the 10 sexiest works of art. (By way of reciprocity, there’s also a Picasso image of fellatio, but oddly joyless and not his best work.)
May your Valentine’s Day be full of delights.
