I've been craving calamari sex ever since I saw Noomi Rapeface give birth to a squid in that stupid Ridley Scott movie.

Disturbingly, I was aware of this  Incidentally, wiki has some a wonderful translation from one of the works:

"SMALL OCTOPUS: After daddy finishes, I too want to rub and rub my suckers at the ridge of your furry place until you disappear and then I'll suck some more. "chyu chyu.." "

Which is why I don't donate.

I really thought the "tentacle porn" thing was just a joke to demonstrate how weird Japan can be.... but it's apparently real and historical.  Wow... that is...something.

Oh, I unfortunately know about Japanese tentacle porn.....as I tend to have some strange geek friends who tell me, "Hey.....you have to check this out!".

I should have known better. I now wish that I had never seen that stuff.....so disturbing. My brain still recoils at the memory.

Not only is it real and historical, the historical and modern versions have actually been discussed in a serious context in seminars on the history of ecchi manga at a major anime convention in past.  Not joking, either; apparently someone actually did a college paper on the history of tentacle imagery as a phallic euphemism in Japanese art.  (Cliff's Notes version: Apparently historically--and especially after initial Western contact--there's been reluctance to display actual penis in erotic art in Japan so the tentacles are actually a big squiddy euphemism, so to speak; it doesn't hurt in this regard that until fairly recently most erotic manga and manga-like artworks were aimed squarely at women.)

Like most kink and perversion this kinda thing came about because of repression and censorship.  Depicting full penetration was verboten and thus a substitute was born.


Kinda like how prostitution being illegal fuels the slave trade.

More recently, the West has come to recognize shunga as a legitimate art form, something Japan has been slow to do.

Not this again.  Suggesting Japanese art was "primitive" because ukiyo-e tended towards stylism instead of florid realism?  That's never been done before.

Also, shunga isn't really anything special when you look at the dirty drawings of Europe's past.  Obviously I'm not going to post any examples here but if anyone here thinks oral sex and wacky positions were invented in the 70's, suffice to say they were definitely not.

I do believe some of them were invented by the Romans.

Allright!  Other than the reverse cowgirl, the 69, and the blumpkin, what have the Romans ever done for us?

That's not bad art, that's just how they looked back then. Like the whole thing with Klingon foreheads. They really don't discuss it much with outsiders.

big hitter, the Lama -- long, into a ten-thousand foot crevice, right at the base of this glacier. And do you know what the Lama says? Shunga galunga...shunga -- shungaunga galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive tentacle consiousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

I can literally sit and play with Sculptris all day long. When I get better at rigging I'm goign to make a free general purpose morphable tentacle monster unimesh.

I have almost no interest in actually creating rendered images. I only got Daz Studio to use to make quick mock ups as references for 2D illustration work but then I discovered modelling and all the joys of childhood building model kits came back to me in digital form. Now I love making morphs and models and giving them away for free and letting other people do creative stuff with them. Being Ghastly, of course, I have a few tentacled beasties in my portfolio.

This is a poseable tentacled restraint table.

And this is a morphable tentacle monster (unrigged though).

My Share CG Gallery is here where you can get all the stuff I've been making for free. It's a very fun hobby, very relaxing yet frustrating at the same time. It's always nice when I see stuff I made turn up in other people's porn.... I mean art.

If I may quote a classic from another Farker:

So here's the conversation that went on inside me when I saw that:
Logic: Don't click that link.
Curiosity: Oh come on! How bad could it be?
Logic: Are you serious? This is the internet. You know damn well how bad it could be.
Curiosity: It can't be what you think it is.
Logic: It's EXACTLY what I think it is. You know it's going to involve Asians.
Penis: I kind of like Asians.
Curiosity: See?
Logic: Have you forgotten all the unbelievably screwed up things we've seen involving Asians?
Soul: Yeah, I'm scarred for life. You jackasses have made me see so many things I can't unsee.
Curiosity: We're clicking the link. *click*
Stomach: *expels contents*
Soul: I hate you all.

Not suggesting it's primitive; suggesting it's farking ugly.
