Intimate couple life drawing at Lydia’s.

My friend Lydia and her housemate Flavia hosted the most glorious life drawing session.

They are both working professional artists and know a lot of amazing artists. They hired an amazing modelling team. The flat is gorgeous and was full of evening light.

Life drawing 7 by Suzanne Forbes April 19 2018Here in Berlin, where some of us have generous flats, artists can have models pose right in their homes and invite other artists to join in.

(I did it in October!) This was an absolutely fabulous session, and I am so grateful to Lydia and Flavia for organizing it with such terrific models.

Life drawing 10 by Suzanne Forbes April 19 2018The modelling team, Eli and Louise, are absolutely great.

They are young and strong and beautiful and do wonderful dynamic poses as well as tender, intimate ones.

Life drawing 8 by Suzanne Forbes April 19 2018You can follow them on Instagram at Rosiichbinnackt, which means “Rosi I am naked!”.

Me and Daria and Marina were all in a row in the back, with the usual giggling and super-fast talking in Russian from those two hooligans.

Funny story: I have drawn naked lovers before, but never naked lovers holding still!

I’ve drawn beautiful naked young people together many times, but it has always been at sex parties or porn shoots, where they were actively engaged in having sex!

Life drawings by Suzanne Forbes April 19 2018So it was really cool to draw these two professional models, who posed for fast gestures, short poses, and twenty minute sets.

Thanks a million to Lydia, Flavia, Eli and Louise! Visit my flickr for free downloads of these drawings and many, many, many more. Remember you’ll need to be logged in to a flickr account with adult safeties turned off to see some of them ūüôā

This post originally appeared on my other blog, chipinhead.com; however as censorship in the US increases I could no longer have nudity on my Patreon-funded blog. That’s right, not even life drawing nudity.

So I moved it here, to my NSFW blog, registered and hosted in Europe and not funded by Patreon. I’m working on the crowdfunding for this site; meanwhile you can hand me a Euro or pass the hat if you see me working around town.

 

Vampire Lesbians of Neukölln: The Scorpio Bloody HeX birthday party!

twentysomething spanking by Sadie drawn by Suzanne Forbes Nov 17 2017Our artist friends Sadie Lune and Jo Pollux had a birthday party at their studio space in Neukölln on a dark cold November night.

punching by Sadie drawn by Suzanne Forbes Nov 17 2017My husband and I made our way through the dark courtyard and when we arrived in the candlelit space, “Daughters of Darkness” was screening in the main room.

We watched the end of it. I may have seen it with my horror-freak babysitters at the Chelsea repertory house The Elgin in the 70s, but never as an adult. I could not believe how painterly it is! Ravishing. Then, a sexy pomegranate strip performance by Finn Peaks.Finn Peaks at Scorpio Bloody Hex Party Feb 18 2018 by Suzanne Forbes

Followed by birthday spanking, which Sadie explained is an American custom.

singletail by Sadie drawn by Suzanne Forbes Nov 17 2017Sadie and Jo were very elegantly dressed in long slinky gowns, and Jo hitched hers up to receive her twenty-odd spanks.

Then Jo explained that there is a Polish custom where you can right any wrongs you have done by doing them to yourself, so we all spanked Sadie!

I gave her a spank (it landed very well) just as I gave her a bite during her birthday biting on her 30th birthday back in SF in 2008.

Sadie’s birthday parties were legend in the Bay Area art/kink/sex work community back in the Oughts.

After spanking there was lots of chocolate cake! And a Vampire playlist with “This Corrosion”.

Sadie had made a sign-up list with eleven different kinds of pain she was interested in doing, and people signed up for the pain of their choice.

scratching by Sadie drawn by Suzanne Forbes Nov 17 2017There were options like “Singletail”, “Scratching”, “Biting”, and “Genital Torture” and “Piercing”.

Of course everyone wanted to watch the beautiful evil queen torment her subjects, so we all gathered in a small room lined with pillows and set up for Sadie’s acts of sensation play.

It was very cosy and peaceful, and Sadie was lovely and frightening as she toyed with her pets.

My husband and I have seen many, many scenes, and I have drawn at many, many sex parties, play parties, porn shoots and orgies.

But this evening contained a remarkable moment, the first time I ever stopped drawing and just ogled because the scene was so hot.

What you see here is mostly reconstructed after the fact, from memory! Sadie leaped onto a young woman in bra and panties, growling, her leonine mane and velvet cloak alternately draping and revealing her victim. The young woman was overcome with terror and delight as Sadie bit her all over.

Sadie’s violet eyes looked black as her teeth decorated her willing prey.

biting by Sadie drawn by Suzanne Forbes Nov 17 2017Seriously, I once drew during an intimate fisting shoot with Jiz Lee and Papi Coxxx, and I kept drawing the whole time. As a courtroom artist I have drawn Russian mobsters on the witness stand testifying that they had blood hosed from their trunk at the same car wash I used, and not stopped drawing.

But I put the pen down during the biting scene last night.

As my hub observed, Sadie really knows her work. She judged each person precisely, and every one of them was giddy with delight. Particularly the person who received the punching- they laughed their ass off the whole time. Sadie checked in with the audience regularly too; each of us reacted most strongly to a different scene.

Genital torture by Sadie drawn by Suzanne Forbes Nov 17 2017

I had to grit my teeth for the whole scratching scene, even as the scratching subjects begged for more.

And my hub was a little edgy during the CBT, seen above!Sadie Lune does bloodplay at Scorpio Bloody Hex Party Feb 18 2018 Suzanne Forbes

The last scene was piercing, and I did make a drawing but it was rather sketchy.

I’m terribly squeamish about needles and blood, and I had trouble looking. Especially as the piercee was totally into it and kept being up for more intense sensation! When Sadie was saying happily, “I’m just milking blood from your holes now”, I was covering my eyes!

Purple and blue butt by Sadie drawn by Suzanne Forbes Nov 17 2017Above is the scene called “Purple and Blue Butt”, with Manon, which everyone enjoyed!

We had a lovely time and it was so nice to go out to a sexy event with my hub for the first time in ages. Thank you, Jo and Sadie, and many happy returns!

This post originally appeared on my blog chipinhead.com, but as censorship in the US has increased I had to remove it from there in order to avoid jeopardizing my Patreon, which is my primary source of income from my art. I’m working on a new crowdfunding solution for my documentary art that depicts nudity and explicit sexuality; meanwhile you can always hand me a Euro or pass the hat for me if you see me drawing somewhere!

 

 

Bondage and waxplay at the Berlin Poetry Brothel!

Sawa and Husalia at Berlin Poetry Brothel at Lotus Loft May 23 2019 by Suzanne ForbesI went to see some¬†Berlin poets¬†at¬†TangoLoft Berlin’s Lotus Loft with my friend Sadie Lune!

To our delight, a wonderful woman shibari/kinbaku artist named SawaShibari was performing rope bondage.

You can see SawaShibari, above and below, tying up model Husalia.

We also greatly enjoyed the waxplay performance of Red Witch Dunja.

Dunja as the Red Witch at BPB at Lotus Loft May 23 2019 by Suzanne ForbesI’ve enjoyed drawing Dunja performing on several other occasions.

I’ll get those posted on here soon! You can see the safe-for-work drawings created at this event, which were produced for my crowdfunding Patreon, here. I actually redacted the word “Brothel” in the event title for that post, because of changes in US-based platforms’ posting “standards”¬†since the passage of new bills. For the same reason all the lingerie brands on Insta are losing thousands of followers as their content is demoted, i.e. hidden from viewer’s timelines and hashtag searches.

Have you heard about the changes at Instagram, like the¬†deprecation¬†of “vaguely inappropriate” content? Facebook is doing the same, by “reducing the spread” of “problematic content”. It’s ostensibly only to prevent fake news. But it doesn’t do that, and what it does do is oppress LGTBQiA humans and all human bodily autonomy, awareness and celebration.

I’m working on crowdfunding for this site, so I can continue to create and release free original art documenting human sexuality, desire and gender expression. Meanwhile you can always fund my work on my safe-for-work site, for as little as a dollar/euro a month!

Nature, red in tooth and claw.

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.

My erotic art has a new home.

And we moved my domains, and secured my site!

Thanks to my amazing hub, suzanneforbes.com was transferred to a European domain registry and both suzanneforbes.com and my SFW site chipinhead.com are now secure domains, registered and hosted in Europe, baby!! Wooohooo!

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.

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.

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.

I hope you will be inspired to learn more about the chilling effect  caused by SESTA and FOSTA, such as the closing of Craigslist Personals, and the immediate harm to sex workers.

I continue to make erotic art and document diverse, queer, kinky sexuality in Berlin.

And now that my sexy art has a home, I will be posting it ALL THE TIME if you fund me.

I’m working on the crowd-funding setup for this site.¬†

Welcome to SuzanneForbes.com!

This is the new home of my free, crowdfunded artwork documenting human sexuality.

It is NSFW and you must be over 18 to view most pages.
As my fans know, I’ve been using skills developed as a courtroom artist and as a penciller for DC’s Star Trek comics to document people being sexy since 2004.
Above, Bishop Black and Martini Cherry Furter posing during the “Red Hot Love” session of Dr. Sketchy’s Berlin.
I look forward to posting lots of sexy drawings of wonderful, sexy Berlin folx playing, loving, performing and expressing their true selves. I have not been able to create these drawings for my safe-for-work site, which is crowdfunded by Patre*n, because of censorship issues.
