Igor Amelkovich

Amelkovich is a self-taught Russian photographer (who has won a number of prestigious awards) with two interests – landscapes and nude/erotic images. His nude photography is exceptional, in black and white film and focused on displaying women in their most beautiful and radiant form, although admittedly his subjects are models so bring a standardised body shape and style. Since all of his nude photography is focused on women, couple and sexual positions are not included. However, while not explicitly sexual, his photos are erotic, intriguing and many even evoke BDSM themes including bondage.

CLITERACY

By Sophia Wallace

Wallace is an American conceptual artist and photographer that is best known for her project CLITERACY  which investigates body rights, gender, citizenship and sexuality through various media including installations, sculpture, and performance including the ‘Clit Rodeo’. Wallace has also produced a video on her work ‘CLITERACY: 100 Natural Lawsthat can be viewed on vimeo.

While Wallace does not produce erotic content, The Clit List has featured her work as it effectively addresses the paradox of global sexualisation of female bodies and illiteracy with female sexuality. In particular it comments the gamete of information regarding women’s sexuality and bodies, focusing on the clitoris, including evolving scientific information on the topic, psychoanalysis, female genital mutilation, architecture, religion, virginity myths, and porn culture.

Sophia Wallace was kindly recommended to The Clit List by one of our viewers. If you too have comments or suggestions for The Clit List, please contact ella@mybodybackproject.com.

Joan Semmel

Joan Semmel is an American painter and writer that is well known for large-scale nude paintings as seen from her own perspective, her erotic series of heterosexual couples having sex, as well as her study of women’s bodies and sexuality throughout the aging process. In fact, her unique depiction of the female nude was proclaimed in the 1970s as a leading (First-wave) feminist approach to painting. Generally her art focuses on female identity and sexual expression, and are widely noted for their celebration of colour and flesh. The Clit List recommends Semmel’s art to those looking for a vivid expression of cis sex as well as women’s sexual experience and identity including the beauty and grace in ageing.

Katsushika Hokusai

Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period. His seminal piece ‘The dream of a fisherman’s wife’ was created in 1820 from wood block pieces and depicts a woman enveloped in the arms of two octopuses, one performing cunnilingus and the smaller one fondling her mouth and left nipple.

However Hokusai has also created a number of other works focusing on sexual acts between men and women in almost a karma sutra style. Recommended for those looking for very beautiful cis art that depicts sex in the Japanese style.
