Penetration by Benjamin Füglister aka Pornsaint Biggi Bardot, deals with the magic of the instant moment where the spectator connects with the object in sight. It consists of 3 to 5 short films acompanied by a supporting soundtrack as well as production stills. Penetration also covers the omnipresent visual «sexual» stimulation and uncovers the absurdness of the so called erotic or seductive visual conventions.

Toshio Saeki has cultivated a unique and shocking style – blending traditional Japanese technique with his own twisted imagination. Saeki’s artwork is a synthesis of depraved vision and incredible artistic ability.
“A famous writer once described my works as ‘obviously peculiar’ and I cannot completely deny that,” he said. ”I want to surprise people, make them happy, and if possible, even completely enchant the minds of those who see my work. To realize that, I will choose whatever method it takes, and will not limit myself.”
Saeki embraces the controversial nature of his work. He seeks to challenge social norms by placing the unconscious in plain view.
“In the modern world, where one rarely stops to think about the truth behind the moment, you might enjoy it if you take a peep at my mysterious and strange illusions,” he said. “To those who frown at them, I want to place the drawings right in front of your face and ask if you really disapprove. I’m always thinking, how wonderful it would be to give shape to psychological pictures which everyone hides and holds deep within them.”

Through exploring the iconic "Sheela-na-Gig" motif, a conflicting symbol of fertility and promiscuity, Moore's work confronts the audience's perceptions and encourages them to reflect on their own reaction to the work.
One of the most savagely erotic pair of books that I've read consists of the novels Myra Breckinridge and Myron, by famous author and activist Gore Vidal. The first is about a highly sensual woman, Myra, who becomes a teacher at the Academy for Aspiring Young Actors and Actresses. She toys with many of the teachers and students, especially savouring her games of domination with macho egotists of the male persuasion.
