A Celebrated Strap-On

The floral wreath around the tip of this strap-on dildo is intended, I imagine, to suggest that it is an award-winning tool, to which accolades are presumably due because of many fine orgasms skillfully and diligently delivered by means of its good offices:

The artwork is one of those ornamental publishing details that used to appear throughout the pages of better-quality books. This one appeared in an edition of Pibrac: Quatrains érotiques de Pierre Louys. According to the source I’ve linked, the artist is not known for certain but is said by at least one source to be Berthommé Saint-André.

Monsters Capture Girls From Audience

I was thinking this really sounded like the sort of performance my mad science aficionado-friend Dr. Faustus would enjoy until I got to the bottom of the poster. “Real live baby will be given away?” Uh, that’s not a selling point, people! “Walking? Ready to talk?” The best-case scenario here, short of outright fraud in the inducement, is that somebody in the audience wins a baby parrot…

The essay Haunted Attractions And Spook Shows Of Yesteryear explains what was probably going on at the entertainment in question. A sort of vaudeville haunted house show with sleazy-carnie overtones, of a sort not seen in these modern times. Television killed the monsters capturing girls from the audience, it would seem…

A Donkey Show In Paris, 1898

Look, you Frenchy. You can pretty this thing up however you want. You can hire a fancy artist by the name of Jules Grün with little dots over his last name to paint the poster for your fancy circus. You can call your shindig the “Red Donkey Literary Cabaret” until your cows come home. Line up your poets and singers and auteurs and directors, line them up in pretty ranks and wrap ribbons around their titties and cocks for all I care! But I am a man of the world. I have been to Old Mexico, and I know a donkey show when I see a poster for one pasted up on a wall. What you have here is fixin’ to be a donkey show or my name ain’t Cornelius P. Cornpone:

I, Too, Am A Weary Walker

The painting Nymphs and Satyr by William-Adolphe Bouguereau has long played an important part in the iconography of Erosblog, so you may imagine my delight when I encountered the following rendition of it in a detail of a print of a newspaper cartoon at the “Museum Confidential” exhibit of the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa Oklahoma, which museum I visited in the company of The Nymph and my good friend Dr. Faustus not so long ago. You’ll recognize the painting at once, I think:

Rendition of Nymphs and Satyrs by E.A. Filleau of Kansas City MO

Zooming out just a bit, here it is in the cartoonist’s imagined museum presentation:

framed cartoon version of nymphs and satyrs

The cartoon itself is quite deliciously meta, featuring a weary walker who just can’t seem to find that scenic spot, a sentiment with which I am in ultimate sympathy:

The above is a crop from my cell phone photograph of a print under glass below harsh museum lights, so it’s not an ideal reproduction. Both above and in the uncropped version, there are bright lights reflecting from the glass. With a little looking I was able to find an online scan of a slightly different edition of the print, showing somewhat less detail, but also with fewer visual artifacts; that’s here.

This print is titled “Weary Walker At Art Exibit.” The artist is F.A. Filleau of Kansas City, Missouri; and the caption reads:

I’ve traveled the world over and tramped every spot on the map, but I’m damned if I can locate that brook.

Above, I referred to it as “a print of a newspaper cartoon” and my reason for doing so is a reference in a book called Peoria Stories (apropos a Nymphs and Satyrs copy purchased by a Peoria showman). Referencing the original Bouguereau artwork, the book discusses the period when the painting hung in the Hoffman House hotel in New York, and claims:

The painting gained even more popularity when it was caricatured in the local papers. The drawing depicts the work hanging in an art gallery as a man named “Weary Walker” stares longingly at the nymphs by the running water. “I’ve traveled the world over and tramped every spot on the map”, he muses, “but I be dammed [sic] if I can’t locate that brook.”

The minor differences in grammar, spelling, and captioning between the print exhibited at the Philbrook and the newspaper cartoon described in Peoria Stories makes me suspect that the print was a later publication, capitalizing on the popularity of the newspaper cartoon, and probably redrawn with improved artistry. If anybody who is a wizard with newspaper archives can turn up a copy of the original cartoon, you would surely earn a post and a place of honor in ErosBlog iconographic history!

Share Our Shit Saturday 8 #SoSS

Coming in just under the Saturday wire, my first Share Our Shit Saturday post of 2018 with a focus on sex workers and products:

  1. Liara Roux (“Professional bisexual cutie & indie porn director/producer” says her Twitter profile, “Your Travel Sized Sweetheart” says her website) is someone that I knew I owed a favor, because of her tweets at the right time that got me up to speed on the slow-rolling Patreon #pornocalypse stuff. In that moment she was just a Twitter handle to me; I didn’t know her from Adam’s off ox, and could not have picked her out of a photo lineup at a drunk tank. Eventually I discovered that she was posting catch-your-breath cute photos on Twitter. Her breaks-all-the rules, video-animated, music-playing website is the most persuasive example of a professional woman’s anchoring web presence I have encountered, but be warned: it’s mesmerizing. It’s lucky I’m not a rich man, else I might soon be a rather poorer one.
  2. In case you have somehow missed it, one of my oldest blogfriends Mistress Matisse has masterminded and is marketing an intimacy-enhancing cannabis-based sensual lube called Velvet Swing. Currently only available at select legal cannabis retailers in the state of Washington, so I don’t in-person know anybody with experience of the product. But Mistress Matisse has just about the lowest bullshit-quotient of any sex worker I’ve ever encountered on social media, and she’s convinced me that she poured her heart into creating and getting this stuff onto the market. I believe in her and she believes in Velvet Swing, and that’s good enough for me.
  3. Adroitly multitasking camgirl Haylee Love manages two dildos, a buttplug, and a vibrator, while rocking a collar and cat ears. Sheerest talent, gentlemen, on display at Sensual Liberation Army.

A Bit Of Bondage Fingering

His right hand (and the camera person) may not know precisely what his left hand is doing, but the smile on her face tells us that she is fully aware, and has no problem with any of it:
