Addie Wagenknecht and Pablo Garcia consider that today’s porn is not that different from the painted nudes, they both use the media of their time to convey an erotic imagery and a certain definition of beauty.
Buried under the heavy classical codes of Western art, the sexual aspect of the paintings has vanished. DESCRIPTION: Classical works of art are reproduced by online sexcam performers.
Buried under the heavy classical codes of Western art, the sexual aspect of the paintings has vanished.
What would happen if these codes were reinterpreted with today’s media?
The sexcam performers striking the pose might offer a rawer vision than the classical paintings but some of them definitely share the grace of their older counterparts.
My long-term boyfriend of 5 1/2 years (we have been shopping for engagement rings the last couple weeks), told me some shocking news.
Three years ago, he used online sex chats and had “webcam sex” three times. I know that this happened three years ago, but this was the man that I trusted.
Here are the details: he said the online sex chats went on for a few months and he used the webcam three times (basically they masturbated in front of one another). He did not form a relationship with any of the women, did not know who any of them are. He said he did not realize how bad what he was doing actually was, and one day it “hit him” and he felt horrible, and stopped. He said he felt so bad he could not sleep, but he didn’t want to tell me and crush me. He has always been so wonderful to me- we’ve been together for over five years, we live together- but THIS. I know that our intimate relationship was almost nonexistent, so maybe that was an outlet for him, but I just don’t know how to feel or what to do.
(it got brought up the other day by me, because we were talking about porn, and I asked him if he had ever done anything like that…and he told me). Have any of you been in this sitation or have any insight?
Side note: our sexual relationship had slowed to nearly nothing during this time because of some personal issues I was having.
AUTHOR: American artists Addie Wagenknecht and Pablo Garcia for F. AMUSEMENT RATE: The piece is “an experimental homage to both fine art and the lowbrow internet phenomenon of cams.” The difference between pornography and art can be thin and often lies in the viewer’s eyes.
