A special request to our Russian-speaking friends – we plan to add the St Petersburg artist Mikhail Gavrichkov, especially his 2012 Азбука для Взрослых (ABC for Adults), but we do not have a complete set in both colour and black and white. Can any of you help with scans/photos? If you can, email us at info@honesterotica.com, and we will be eternally grateful!

Erotic hippy fantasies

4th November 2022

If dreamy, hippy, doe-eyed 1970s lesbian love is your thing, you will love the early work of today’s new artist, Jean-Pierre Stholl, who couldn’t resist the extended fantasy. Fortunately he grew out of it to produce some even better work! See it all now by clicking here.

Japanese revival

Seeing the light

The Israeli artist Samarel takes the techniques of computer-enhanced art to new heights in the exploration of erotic imagination. In his creations bright liquid flashes of colour integrate with naked bodies, reflecting the passion and energy of good sex. See his work now by clicking here.

Naked in the wild

25th October 2022

It’s very sad that naked has become taboo, and glimpses of ‘forbidden’ body parts the province of porn. Today’s new artist, Susannah Martin, puts the joyful, inquisitive naked body back in its natural environment, where it belongs. See her work now by clicking here.

Oh la la
