Superheroe’s Sexual Life

Superheroe’s Sexual Life

on May 14, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

We have seen them overcome human barriers. We’ve seen them save the planet. Even we have seen them fight their nature. But we had not seen’em  in a sexual fulfillment… until now. The plastic artist Grégoire Guillemin surprised us with his personal view on some superheroes loaded with a throbbing sexuality. With a pop and avant-garde style, Guillemin approaches the daily lives of our heroes, with a humor that shows everyday sexual situations, that show their desires, putting them in a much more humane field and far from perfection that always be seen. This illustrator reflects the “deep” human aspect of the superhero, dares to be more irreverent, and portrays these characters in activities of the common man as sweating, eating, even having sex. It is noteworthy that the technique that made this series is very adequate, with a clear influence of Roy Lichtenstein and pop art of the early 60’s he used as inspiration for mundane, everyday objects. Pop images, close-ups of some characters like Spiderman, Wonder Woman or Lara Croft in a wet dream, relaxed… almost as much as Hulk rolling a joint. Catwoman, our favourite cat-themed female superhero (or villain) features on three other posters getting intimate with raven-haired Poison Ivy. Selina Kyle, a popular character in Guillemin’s work, features on two more – one called Sucker, where she licks a lolly, and Bath Time, where she cleans herself like a cat. ‘It’s a little treat to myself sometimes, in between all the high-stakes burglary, occasional crime-fighting and toying with Bruce’s emotions. I like the fruit flavours the best,’ she says of Sucker. Bath Time comes with the caption: ‘Some people get offended when I lick myself. But what they don’t understand is that I really hate getting wet and because of the chemical makeup of my tongue, it’s actually totally hygienic. Sometimes I just do it because I’m bored.’ More about his work at http://www.greg-guillemin.com/   Share this:ShareClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn...

Magic Carrapateira

According to the ancient historian Strabo, the Greek gods relaxed on the Algarve west’s cliffs after sunset, and we could hear the sizzle of the sun as it sank into the blood-red sea. Beyond lay the Green Sea of Darkness, the uncharted region of monsters and abysses. Is that the Algarve is a magical, dreamy land, where life proceeds at a calm pace, no worries, in contact with a virgin wilderness, timeless. The Algarve is the southwestern corner of the Iberian Peninsula and is an intoxicating mix of Atlantic and Mediterranean influences. Until a half-English prince with an explorative urge, Henry the Navigator, took up residence on this barren plateau in the 15th century, making the rock-rose his emblem, this was, literally, the last place in the known world. The beaches of the Vincentian Coast of Portugal are just something out of the ordinary: a route for a nearly virgin space stretching along 60 kilometers between Odeceixe and Sagres, with cliffs that reach 25 meters and breathtaking sunsets. There, among ancient rocks, waves and wind, idyllic beaches as Praia do Amado and Praia da Bordeira invite us to dream and relax by imagining that time is a myth.    Here we found Carrapateira, a small village located in the parish of Bordeira on the west coast of Algarve. It is located near the coast, in an area full of cliffs that announces the gnarly natural strength and beauty of Cape St. Vincent. Very close to the village are several beaches that share similar feature: natural beauty, strong waves and solitude. This is why the Carrapateira area is eminently a surfer destination. In addition, the Cliffs of Carrapateira route is easy. So says its 9.82 km and 883 m of cumulative altitude. Its attractive ways and paths made this circular route a good option to fill our expectations. Drop everything and immerse yourself in the beauty of one of the last pristine havens of Europe.     Share this:ShareClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on...

The first time the model Sienna Miller was called to a photo shoot with Mario Testino, she listened closely to her agent: “Do not let him shoot you naked.” However, from that initial warning to the image as God brought her to the world there were merely a meeting in the studio of the famous fashion photographer. “Mario gets the better of you, because he makes you the mirror of  his frankness” He walks with all his elegance and charm made ​​in Peru, London, Paris … and women simply can not resist. He is the quintessential fashion photographer, who was able to create a new way of looking at celebrities and make their images be his own portrait. The seal Testino is tattooed in those pictures. Seeing is believing. Hypnotize seems to be the goal. But that is just a part: Madonna, Princess Diana, Gisele Bundchen, Rihanna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Natalia Vodianova, and many more names, captivate us from the unconventional portraits of the Peruvian artist who will remain in the annals of world photography. From the knowing glances to the eroticism exhibited by photographed celebrities; from the irreverence of the shaved female pubic for Gucci campaign to the naked men who dared to his lens; from the glamor to the charm of stolen snapshots when no one knew the words selfie, Twitter or Instagram, Mario breaks down the barriers between art and commercial photography. At least that suggests the gesture of making fashion enter the museum… “Testino belongs to a group of artists from modernism to today that have managed to transform a weakness, such as being born in a peripheral country, into a fortress, like Rivera, Orozco and as Berni”. Like a game of Mamushkas, Testino is already part of the star system he portrayed: media star, pop icon, difficult figurine in interviews. His unique style, his great ability to connect with his models and his passion for fashion have made him a star among stars. Mario describes the “Testino look” as “curious, sensual, friendly and restless”, but viewers are often fascinated with other stamps: nudity, glamour, provocation… Is there any secret? “Being a photographer is pure seduction. You have to convince people to...

Social Media is an inexhaustible source of new trends, fads and idiomatic revolutions. The Oxford Dictionaries, using a search tool capable of analyzing every month about 150 million English words used on the Internet, found that the use of the term “selfie” has increased 17,000% in the last 12 months, making this THE new term in 2013 imposed to words like “twerk” or the “binge-watch”, according to recent reports. According to this source, the first time the word was used in Internet was in 2002, in an Australian discussion forum. “Social networks have helped to popularize the term, the hashtag #selfie on the Flickr photo website since 2004”, said Judy Pearsall, editorial director of Oxford Dictionaries, “But its widespread use began in 2012, when the mass media began to use it regularly,” she said. But to know what could be one of the first selfies of history, we must go back in time to a cold winter almost a hundred years ago, in December 1920, when Joseph Byron and Ben Falk decided to take a camera with one hand each and immortalize the moment to be remembered for such popular invention in the roof of the Marceau photography studio in New York City. This curious piece is in the collection of The Museum of the City of New York, along with another image in which they are seen taking the picture. Or even an older one, the work of William Davis Hassler “Two Portraits of Self With and Without Hat” ca. 1917 (Museum of the City of New York).   Since then, selfies have evolved, and so new methods have emerged as belfies, photobomb, bedstagram, braggies, bikini bridge, usie, boobstagram, frontback, selfit, carfie, selfeet, aftersex, sellotape selfies, and even new technological developments at the service of self-photography, as the ‘Zuckerberg Selfie Stick’ and a new mirror, the S.E.L.F.I.E (Self Enhancing Live Feed Image Engine), the perfect tool to become the star of Social Networks.   It is the power of the social construction of the gaze; being viewed generates identity, but as there is no one till death do us part, we witness multiple identifications, as varied as our moods. The selfie, that passion for self-portraits, is part of the ecstasy that...

So, you don’tt know where you’re going this summer? Let’s face it, your compass is pointing out to Saint-Tropez, Mykonos, Ibiza, Sardinia and other destinations bathed by Cristal champagne, but you want to vary slightly and turn the wheel the other way. I do not know, just to get away from the everyday mess and the Russians with their smartphones… nothing personal. Yes, tourist friend, now it’s time to put aside the partying crowd, to try new destinations and forget, at least for a while, the old multitudes of new rich, who also deserve a place in the sun but not necessarily making shadow over us, right? The following are some critical points that deserve a minute of your attention, at least for a visit at the best time of year. From Indochina to the Mediterranean, from Central America to Africa, a list of islands, towns and beaches to walk naked. For example, the island of Pantelleria (Italy), between Sicily and Tunisia.. Rent a boat and glide through the Capri’s Tyrrhenian, with optional stops in Ischia, Panarea and Tre Sorelle. Or Boka Kotorsa Bay in Montenegro. Mandatory stops, the villages of Budva, Kotor, Herceg-Novi and Perast. Once there, you’ll wonder “why with this surrounding beauty anger exploded in Croatia?” Amorgos and Patmos, Greece. Last refuges that are rooted in the Aegean Sea, ideal for those fleeing from parties and photographers who are east of Mykonos and Santorini, on the banks of the Turkish coast. Amorgos became famous after Luc Besson mounted there his “Big Blue”, in 1988. Naturists are the owners of the piece… Take all, the heavenly beaches of Paradisia and Levressos are the closest idea of ​​a true Olympian. Patmos is more demure (says the dogma that the Apostle John wrote the Book of Revelation there). You must visit Orthodox churches and monasteries embedded in the stones at the top of the village of Chora. And the deserted beaches of Diakofti and Agios Nikolaos are proofs that Zeus exists. Song Saa Islands, Cambodia; Langkawi, Malaysia; Phu Quoc, Vietnam; Andaman in Burma. Enough of Phuket and Phi Phi, Thailand is so last season. Indochina opens and reveals another pass over new seas to discover, all equally tame and classic with...
