Webcam Models Read Sonnets

0

by thepleasurechest

Vice points us to a project by John Reed, a prolific writer with “a healthy interest in porn as both an art form and a cultural phenomenon.” Among his many talents, Reed writes modern day sonnets, and he’s commissioned webcam models to read them. The staging of these readings resembles a typical camshow, but the poems cast the transaction between model and client in a whole new light. You can see the whole series here.

YouTube user logitech4873 is a professional CGI animator. So how do they like to unwind? By making animations of penises, of course. This brief video looks a lot like a nightmare some of the folks in our warehouse have on a nightly basis.

We assume this gif is made by the same person. See the whole mesmerizing sequence here.

We’ve heard of sans serif fonts, but what about sans vêtements? Is that in anyone’s design lingo yet?

A month ago, we told you about Effing Typeface, the world’s kinkiest font. We’re now pleased to report that Greek artist Anastasia Mastrakouli has just raised the bar. Mastrakouli used naked silhouettes of her own body to create the Nude Alphabet, and you can see all 26 lovely NSFW images here.

Safe Sex Dress Raises AIDS Awareness

We’ve seen a lot of creative uses for condoms. Last month we told you about condom ice cream. There’s also a condom bungee rope, condom handbags and condom flowers.  Oh yeah, and then there’s the condom-themed restaurant in Thailand with its very own condom Santa. Today’s latex innovation comes from California college student Jenna Smith, who made a dress out of condoms to raise awareness and funds for her participation in the AIDS Lifecycle Ride.

To make the dress Smith wove colored condoms with clear condoms at the top of the dress and then sewed it together. Then for the wrappers, she glued them “because sewing would rip the foil,” she said.

For the bottom part, she made strips of two condoms, alternating in colors, then sewed them onto a belt to create a skirt.

“My personal favorite part is the belt I made with the rainbow wrappers. It is a separate piece that I will probably wear with other outfits,” she said.

If you’d like to support Jenna in the AIDS Lifecycle Ride, you can sponsor her here.

We all know (or should) that porn is a fantasy. Today’s reminder comes courtesy of Melissa Makeup, an award-winning makeup artist in the adult industry. Ms. Makeup uses her Instagram account to post before and after photos of porn performers who she helps to transform from regular folks to fantasy figures. You can see a big gallery of 33 of her best portraits on Buzzfeed.
