It Doesn’t Have To Be ‘Erotic’ To Be Sexy


They say you only get out what you put in, and that’s especially true of art; we should project onto it, rather than have it dictate to us. That’s why we’ve collected below some images; images that aren’t necessarily erotic, but nonetheless have some sexual power about them, alongside all the other power they have.

What do you think? Do you require erotica for something to be sexy, or do you more often find sexiness where none is intended?
