art and tools of orgasm

Winslow Homer is a great American artist, and I came across a series of his works reproduced in black and white in the November 1975 edition of Antiques magazine. Immediately I saw penises in these pictures.  Am I particularly dirty minded?  I don't think so!  But I do acknowledge that we see what we want to see in art.  If I were looking for vulvas I probably wouldn't find them in Homer, but maybe in O'Keefe.  Actually, I think what O'Keefe painted was women's orgasms.  Here's another nice one.  Leaves me breathless and satisfied.
