Teaching Cliteracy 101: "It is a curious dilemma to observe the paradox that on the one hand the female body is the primary metaphor for sexuality, its use saturates advertising, art and the mainstream erotic imaginary. Yet, the clitoris, the true female sexual organ, is virtually invisible."
~ Artist Sophia Wallace
is using street art
and an art exhibition
that incorporates pithy slogans, 'scientific data, historical information as well as references to architecture, porn, pop culture and human rights' to make "the case for the clit"

The Imperial Palaces of Tsarskoye Selo
(nowadays Pushkin), near St. Petersburg, contained many invaluable cultural treasures that were plundered or destroyed during the Second World War. Most famous among them was the fabled Amber Room
, whose disappearance has soured diplomatic relations between Germany and Russia ever since (the Germans can't find it back
). Some claim that another, much more secret room of the Catherine Palace
was also plundered. However, in this case, the Russian authorities deny that it ever existed. [more inside]

"Meanwhile, down in Vaginaland, Mr Condom's beginning to feel a bit iffy. He's overheating. For some reason, the shagging seems to be twice as fast this evening, and he grimaces as he gets flung willy-nilly in and out of the pink tunnel. He starts getting friction burns, hanging onto Bobby's stiff penis for dear life, headbutting Georgie's cervix at 180 beats per minute. 'Help me!' he yells in the darkness, feeling himself melting."
This year's worst sex. [NSFW or post-turkey family reading] [more inside]

facettes de la petite mort
No nudity, but not safe for work. I love it when eroticism is found where you might not expect it. Like, simple facial expression, for example.

OK, so we all know the cliche about men being visual, and woman
being narrative as it applies to the appreciation of web erotica. Is
that true? As a male, I know what turns my crank, (I don't think my
sharing that is important considering it's banality) but have no idea
if the internet has grown as a sensual media by women for women.
seems to have a balanced
approach, but that's all I know. So I ask all the ladies in the MeFi
house what intelligent stuff do you click to scratch that itch, if at

is no more, which is a shame they had more than a few sexy photographs on there and decent design.
