Erotic Art

Discover everything about erotic art

Explore your fantasies through erotic art

For as long as there have been artists there has been erotic art. Photography is now the most common medium for such images, but it's been done in everything from cave painting to collages. It's sometimes said that the difference between 'naked' and 'nude' is how artistic it is - and while that might not be true, it's certainly the case that erotic imagery can have creative potential. Here at, we love exploring the boundaries between the erotic and the artistic, which is something the BDSM community has enjoyed for decades.

How is erotic art different from porn?

Erotic art has the same purpose as porn - It’s made to arouse - but where they differ is that erotic art often has another purpose too, it maybe gives an insight into the inner workings of the artist’s mind or could be a way of highlighting an issue in society.

Is all erotic art modern?

No, there has been this kind of art all through history. There are erotic cave paintings, fertility statues and early pottery. People have been making creative recordings of sex as long as they’ve been around because let’s face it, sex rocks.

Does fetish feature in erotic art?

Yes, this kind of art explores all kinds of fetishes from bondage to latex to water sports and cross dressing. There’s art out there for all kinds of kinksters and fetish lovers, you just need to look.

How do I make erotic art?

However you like! That’s the joy of being creative. You could use paint or sculpt with clay, you can take photos in fact anything you want. Portray anything you like from your BDSM play to more vanilla acts. If you have a particular fetish then concentrate on that. Fetish art is really popular as people love to see the kinks they enjoy depicted as art.

No sooner does humanity make a new technological innovation than it starts trying to figure out how to use it for sex--and digital photography was no different. In this brave new world where the camera in your jeans pocket is better than any your great-grandparents could have imagined, amateur and erotic photography are practically ubiquitous. It can be an excellent way to explore fetishes, to share intimate moments with people you can't be physically near, and to store away naughty memories to stir you up when you revisit them later. It's worth giving some thought to who has access to your nude photographies and to where they end up. At the click of a button they can be broadcasted all over the world - so make sure you trust the people who are in charge of those buttons!
Pornography isn't always visual. For many people, the hottest porn of all is to be read rather than watched - and erotica is huge business. There are plenty of specialised publishers putting erotica out, so whatever your tastes you'll be able to find erotica that works brilliantly for you. Just don't be afraid to shop around a little before finding an author you love - everyone has their own style, and there's something out there to get you going if only you can find it! Have a look through some free samples to find an author you like, and then see if there are any other authors they recommend as similar to them.
Humans have always made, consumed and loved pornography. There have been plenty of arguments about it over the years - who it's bad for, who should be able to access it, what its connotations might be - but ultimately, what's clear is that it's a fundamental fact of the human condition and it isn't going anywhere. The answer isn't to try and stamp it out, particularly not as for many people it's a healthy form of sexual exploration and self-expression; what we need to do now is work together as a community to create new, inclusive, ethical porn that's as hot as hell to boot.
