It’s what’s on the inside that counts.

Indications abound that the next global generation coming up prefers to focus more on what is inside a person rather than their exterior. A young British art student by the name of Eleanor Beth Haswell has taken a literal approach to this with her anatomical lingerie.

This unique art piece shows a view of what is underneath the skin, of what is being covered, in a manner generally reserved for medical books. There is a wonderful sense of honesty when viewing these, as if the wearer, perhaps unhappy with societal requirements to cover up, sarcastically takes off more than if she were to be naked!
You can almost hear the her thinking, fine, if you don’t want to see skin, I’ll take that off too.

Beyond that, Eleanor manages to create a feeling of subtle juxtaposition between the universal nature of general human anatomy, and the specific anatomy that makes up a female. She creates an important reminder that gender differences are not based on values that society imparts, rather simply, a specific set of organs.


Go over to Eleanor Beth Haswell’s page, check out some of her other work and most important, be certain to remember her name, we suspect this won’t be the last time you hear it.

#88dates, dates 1-22 

sexologist:

I told you that Ryan and I began a dating challenge to go on 88 different dates between Memorial Day and New Year’s Eve. We set out to challenge our own dating repertoire, teach the internet about the fun of dating, breathe some positivity into a ugly world, and model healthy masculinity,…

This is wonderful on so many levels :)

Standing room only.

A Chinese hospital in Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu Province, has introduced a new machine that makes sperm donation even easier- an automatic sperm extractor.

The effortless machine features a massage pipe that can be adjusted to suit the height of the user. All the gentleman has to do is plug in the frequency, amplitude and temperature and off they go. It’s also fitted with a small screen with headphones for those feeling uninspired.

According to the director of the urology department of the hospital, the machine is designed to help individuals that are finding it difficult to retrieve sperm the old fashioned way.
Here’s to technology.

Here is a video of the…ummm…unit in question.

Another photography duo’s “Raunchy Rorschachs”.

Our abstract work has always served as an Ink Blot Test in the way it engages the viewer to create their own narrative and details surrounding the image.
Amsterdam-based photographers Blommers and Niels Schumm achieve this through even more abstract means by presenting the viewer with still life images to be inevitably interpreted as something naughty.

As a creator, there is nothing better than “implicating” a viewer through their own engagement of your work.

Come see us at Bushwick Open Studios this weekend!

We are so excited to be in Brooklyn’s Bushwick Open Studios, Saturday May 31st & Sunday June 1st, from noon to 7:00PM at 1717 Troutman Street Studio # 260.

Our good friend and general life inspiration, Rodney Allen Trice of Refitting The Planet has been kind enough to give us a wall to hang on in his magical studio.
The work this man puts out and the mission he is on is nothing short of remarkable and no one who meets him soon forgets the encounter.

1717 Troutman is a block long artist dominated building that is a vital organ in the Bushwick art community which many consider the be the epicenter of America’s modern art scene.
It bursts to life during B.O.S. with virtually every door open and a range of art that will leave you dizzy.
In fact, if you need a break, make sure to pop out onto the roof deck (which is right near us) for a seat and the most spectacular view of Manhattan.

Our work will be up all weekend but due to a shoot on Saturday, we will only be there Sunday however, don;t let that discourage you from visiting whenever you can as it is one of those events that will profoundly affect your sense of art and style, plus, it’s a pretty fun party on top of all that ;)

XOXO,

"Oh daddy don’t you worry now cause momma’s got the pill"

Loretta Lynn was a female country music artist in 1972 when she recorded “The Pill”, let those facts sink in for a moment.

Loretta Lynn’s “The Pill”

"You wined me and denied me when I was you girl

Told me if I’d be your wife you’d show me the world

But all I’ve seen of this old world is a bed and a doctor bill

I’m tearin’ down your brooder house because now I’ve got the pill

All these years I’ve stayed at home while you had all your fun

And every years that’s gone by another baby’s come

There’s gonna be some changes made right here on nursery hill

You’ve set this chicken your last time cause now I’ve got the pill

This old maternity dress I’ve got is going in the garbage

The clothes I’m wearing from now on won’t take up so much yardage

Miniskirts hot pants and a few little fancy frills

Yeah I’m making up for all those years since I’ve got the pill



I’m tired of all your crowing how you and your hens play

While holding a couple in my arms another’s on the way

This chicken’s done for up her nest and ready to make a deal

And you can’t afford to turn it down cause you know I’ve got the pill

This incubator is overused because you’ve kept it filled

The feeling good time’s easy now since I’ve got the pill

It’s gettin’ dark it’s roostin’ time and that’s too good to be real

Oh daddy don’t you worry now cause momma’s got the pill

Oh daddy don’t you worry now cause momma’s got the pill”

AIDS Walk NYC 2014 had over 30,000 walkers and raised $3,772,903.00!!!

Yesterdays weather was some of the most beautiful in the history of Aids Walk NYC and the crowd responded just as warmly as the sun.

Take a look at our video of the day to see what we mean.

Team Constance & Eric brought 18 people to a crowd of over 30,000 who walked contributing $5,755 to the grand total of $5,105,276 (and still counting) that was raised yesterday for AIDS research, support, and testing.

Despite holding up traffic in several neighborhoods, every car that was slowly making it’s way through the inconvenient road blocks and traffic gave a beep, wave, and cheer and he crowd showed their love right back.
image

Always festive & loud, the party never losses the feeling that we are celebrating emerging from a darkness, that we are beginning to heal.
Every year it amazes us how many different people attend, from all walks of life, all boroughs, all neighborhoods. Gay, straight, canes, strollers, sizes, shapes, colors, the rainbow analogy seems highly appropriate on this day.
Our city was ravaged by this illness and yesterday, 30,000 people took to the streets, once again, to say loud and clear, we will not let this happen again.

image


Special thanks to all who walked with us and donated.
This year was the 2nd year our daughter walked with us and we are excited at the prospect of explaining to her that part of the festivities are a memorial of sorts to the days, long gone, when people actually did not talk about AIDS and how, because of our voices, testing positive is no longer the end.

XOXO,

Mothers Day needs to be EVERY day.

Today is the day set aside to remind us how truly powerful the female gender is.
Destruction is easy, that is why everyone is capable of it however, it takes a woman to make the most profound creation known to us, life.
Women truly are the caretakers of humanity, they play the most important role out of us all.

image


Today we not only say thank you to Mothers across the globe but also to reflect on motherhood as a philosophy. We encourage the rest of the world to take the example of motherhood and apply it to your everyday lives.
When we embrace a little more creation and reject a little more destruction in our daily lives we become the agents of a force so powerful that it has the potential to change the world.

XOXO,

Manty party!!!

First off, www.xdress.com…that is pretty much the whole point of this post and really, there’s nothing we can say to even remotely express how amazing this site is, here is just one example why…

Still here? How about this?

…and finally, our favorite tagline on the whole site which reads, “the one thing a woman wants to find  in their stockings at christmas is their husband”

Equal parts gender equality pioneer, legitimate online clothing boutique, lighthearted sex positive outlet, and yes, masturbation material, xdress.com is as hot as it is awesome which, if you think about it, is exactly what sex should be.
They take themselves so seriously that the subject matter starts to seem lighthearted and fun, which are also attributes of sex in a perfect world.
A wonderfully photographed and put together site that doesn’t speak to any particular orientation whatsoever in favor of promoting simply, men in lingerie.
We could write more but Constance says she needs the laptop to order something they call a "J-String"?
No idea what it is but judging from her grin, it seems like more of a gift for her.

XOXO,
Constance & Eric

Group show, Hotter Than July: Eat Your Art Out, opens at the NY Studio Gallery this Friday.

Three years later and the group art show known as “Hotter Than July” is back in it’s most recent manifestation, “Eat Your Art Out” , opening at 7pm, this Friday, May 2nd at NY Studio Gallery, 154 Stanton St right on the corner of Suffolk.

Part sex art show, part performance event, we were thrilled to be asked back by the only curator who’s sole criteria was to turn her on, Savanna Spirit.
Regarding the last show, New York Magazine Art Critic Jerry Saltz posed the challenge “Post porn or porn, individual odysseys or  raw randiness, you decide”, we guarantee the challenge will have many more facets this time around.
Six, more explicit than usual, large pieces of ours will be hanging along with over 20 other artists who are profoundly reshaping the perception of what exactly “sex art” is capable of.


Here are links to the work of the other artists who we are fortunate enough to be showing with:


Keren Moscovitch

Alexandra Rubinstein

Ambrose & Wether

Marne Lucas

Azmi Mert Erdem

Betty Tompkins

Joanne Leah

Daniel Maidman

(dNASAb)

Faith Holland

Genevieve White

Jazz-Minh Moore

Katie Peyton

KM Copham

Linda Griggs

Lowell Boyers

Pretty Offensive

Randy Polumbo

Trevor Guthrie

Yullya Lanina

If you are free, we would LOVE to see you all out in the L.E.S. at 7:00 this Friday on the corner of Stanton and Suffolk for a group show about everyones favorite taboo topic.

XOXO,

Constance & Eric
