I have a poster of Bouguereau's A Young Girl Defending Herself against Eros.

Sure, it is kinda old school with a pretty naked woman and a cupid, but the facial expressions tend to imply that "no" will soon become "yes". (detail cropped to show no tits)

HairBolus: Bouguereau


Bouguereau had a way with flesh.  Reproductions (like looking at pictures of his paintings on the internet) do not do him justice.

Rik01: Can anyone explain to me why so many 'Old Masters' portrayed women basically as pallid, kinda fat slugs? I mean, they tend to look overfed. Sickly. Small boobs too.


Not sure about the unimpressive boobs other than they didnt have implants so DD+ boobs just didnt exist

As far as pale and thick being trendy,

in the era when food was not in abundence and only the 1%ers could afford to eat enough to get fat, being fat was considered hot(as opposed to now when even the poors can afford to eat well enough to be fat and its a sign of poor self control)

When like 90%+ of the population busted thier arse in a field farming food without machinery most of the population had a tan and only the wealthy got to stay inside and pale.

Anyways culture has an awful lot to do with what people consider hot. I mean prior to rap going main stream a girl having a big ass was generally not considered a good thing.

Skleenar: Sooooo.....

It's a fur cup.

Did it really need to be linked, not shown inline?  Am I missing anything?  Is a stretched visual metaphor really all that sexy or outrageous?


Because everything has always been the way it is now.

Giving birth was a dangerous endeavor back then for both the mother and the kid. So I guess they found women who looked like good breeding stock to be more attractive. Can't explain the lack of love for boobies though.

There's a subtle difference between 'sexy' and 'explicit'. Some of these fall into the latter category.

"Okay, while the first whore is undressing, the second one is starting to work on the school boy.  Meanwhile, the Japanese woman is re-enacting scenes from 'Legend of the Overfiend' with a pair of octopuses and a literally fur-lined teacup.  The special effects crew starts making out with the model, but you can't see much of this part due to all the smoke, so we do a quick cut over to where they're letting loose the gimp.  He's stalking over to the office where the CEO is screwing his secretary on the table and two teenage kids are frozen in mid-makeout session.  Finally the whole scene dissolves to a single woman masturbating in front of the camera, and then finally she gets pissed on from offscreen while her naked infant son watches."

"So what do you call this act?"

"The Aristocrats!"
