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.
