These NSFW Paintings Illustrate Hot Famous Guys Going Down On You

Katie Cannon October 30, 2016 October 30th, 2016

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman in possession of a sex drive must be in want of an orgasm. And yet: the vast (and I do mean vast) majority of internet porn isn’t made with a female audience in mind. Female sexuality isn’t just undervalued and ignored, but often considered outright dangerous. Such is the way of the goddamned patriarchy. So a lot of us ladies–though certainly not all–give up on porn and instead rely on our own vivid imaginations to get ourselves off. Usually involving hot celebrities.

That’s why artist Alexandra Rubenstein is determined to portray female pleasure from a female perspective–and what better way than to paint the act of cunnilingus as a woman would experience it, costarring the men of her fantasies?

In Rubenstein’s own words:

“These paintings reflect on the lack of heterosexual female perspective in representation of sexuality in mainstream media and pornography, which reflect as well as shape the way we interact in real life. More literally, they depict male heart throbs eating pussy (taking it back, Trump!) from the women’s point of view. Cunnilingus is censored in mainstream media, rated NC-17 in film, and is under-represented in pornography (compared to the slew of other ‘categories’), which reiterates to the viewer that sex is about men and their pleasure. It’s not!”

Behold, your favorite famous dudes going down on you:

I’ll admit: while the portrait series as a whole feels empowering, there are some definite problems with representation and inclusion–not to mention the slight squick factor of these being real people with real lives being immortalized in the act of cunnilingus.

Obviously, if this were a series of female celebrities going down on anonymous men from this POV, it would be one of the grossest and most upsetting things I’ve seen in a while (although I’m sure pieces like that exist in multitudes); but then again, men don’t have thousands of years of history of being objectified and devalued for their sexuality.

The larger problem I have with it is this: why are all the females portrayed in this relatively thin and light-skinned? If you’re going to try and represent the female experience of pleasure, shouldn’t that include a wider spectrum of women than just skinny white girls? I appreciate the bush diversity of the series, but couldn’t Rubenstein have made more of an effort to portray a more diverse group of women?

 

What do you think? Is the series empowering and sexy, or a little creepy and limiting?
