Michelle Angelo

Sexploitation icon, Michelle Angelo ooozing sheer sex appeal as usual.  Best known for her active part in 60’s sexploitation cinema as well as her breast size.  She is one of the most photographed women of the 1960’s from Playboy and hundreds of other erotic men’s publications.  When you think vintage skin mags, you should think Michelle Angelo.  I guess all big things do come from Texas.

Never Not Working

Nobuyoshi Araki hard at work.  If you have not seen the documentary, Arakimentari you need to put it at the top of your list.  Watching Araki work is pretty amzing and somewhat surreal.  The amount of energy this man has is simply amazing, and the amount of work he has produced is purely unbelievable.

Welcome to Japan, we have plenty of rope.

I’m sure that you can tell from the constant flow of Araki posts that I am slightly fond of Shibari.  To be honest, its not so much the sexual aspect of this whole production but more so the amount of work that goes into this.  I’ve been quite familiar with Shibari for a while, but never really took the time to care for it.  I believe I have been influenced by Nobuyoshi Araki and find myself seeking out as much Shibari photography as I can when I can. 

As for the films, I could really care little for those as well.  Its really just the photos and the shear discipline that goes into it.  All that work for a few kept shots.  When it really comes down to it, no one does it better than Japan.  This guys are the fucking Michael Jordan’s of this shit.  Western fools make very weak attempts at replicating it, but can’t even come close to touching it.  Americans especially, always so worried about the technical phot aspect of it, with their goofy lighting, bullshit props, and horrible typical gothic styling.  Go back to art school you fucking skels.
