Above, amazing time-traveler ValentinaDemonia lights the underworld as Persephone.
Dotti Moscati brings down the house with a fabulous pro-choice parable about what personhood and bodily autonomy mean.
Spoiler: there were men dressed as sperm dancing around her but she killed them all with her spermicide!!
Hostess with the MOST VivaLamore in gauzy florals, and with a big gold dick!
In the background of the latter you can see the giant pussy flower you could put your face in.
More drawings from this lovely evening are coming along!
I have so much art to finish up from Berlin Burlesque Week it is taking some time!
Because of the censorship effect of recent US laws, these drawings could not be created for my Patreon or posted on my SFW site, chipinhead.com. So I’ll be posting everything that shows some skin here, on suzanneforbes.com, and I’m working on the crowdfunding for this site. Cause ya know, I am a disabled queer artist, and I can’t work if I can’t get paid!
As always, these drawings are licensed CC BY-NC-ND 4.0, Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International, and you are free to use and share them for non-commercial purposes if you credit me as Suzanne Forbes, artist.
Stay tuned for more info on how to help support my sex-positive, intersectional, feminist art!
I’m working on the crowd-funding setup for this site. Meanwhile you can always hand me a Euro or buy me an alcohol-free beverage if you see me around town!
With the changes happening in the US because of SESTA/FOSTA, a person like me, who makes erotic art, should not have a digital footprint Stateside.
During the initial burst of shock and horror around the implementation of SESTA and FOSTA, I learned that my longtime host, Bluehost, DOES NOT ALLOW NUDITY. What the fucking fuck, you fucking puritan assholes!
Here Bluehost, have a drawing of a lady with a penis fucking a girl while she sucks off a man with a strap-on!
It’s called “Consenting trans adults enjoy each other!”. I think it’s a beautiful moment of sexual connection in a safe space.
My new host is Leaseweb. They allow porn. In honor of that freedom, please enjoy this selection of drawings made during the years my husband and I were going to events at Femina Potens, The Center for Sex and Culture and the Upper Floor at Kink.com.
During the last ten years I was in the Bay Area I went to so many sex-positive events, parties, porn shoots and venues.
I met my husband at one of them, and after that we went together. We met and made friends with so many amazing people who are or were sex workers.
Porn performers, erotic artists, bondage artists, pro doms, escorts, rubber fetishists, directors of queer indie porn, feminist art gallery owners, activists and educators.
These wonderful people brought their passion, intelligence, authenticity and courage into our lives.
Many of them are deeply political, activists and protesters and change-makers, who work hard to reduce the shame and stigma around sexuality in the US.
Many of them live poor and risk everything to make art about sex, educate people about sexuality, and be true to their own gender identities, sexual preferences and desires.
At a lot of the events I documented, sex workers were donating their time and energy to raise funds for sex-positive art, education or sex workers resources. I have never seen a community give so much.
We saw, and I documented, people showing desire, affection and often love in public sex spaces.
There was laughter and deep intimacy and pleasure. It wasn’t perfect, the heyday of San Francisco sex-positive culture, indie porn and the Kink Castle, but it was an experiment as brave and important as the original Summer of Love. It was queer and fierce and strange, and I love the sex workers we came to know and I honor their work.
Sex is natural, sex is good, not everybody does it and not everybody should, but everybody should be allowed the sexual and gender expression and choices that are true and safe for them.
