Womens Erotic Art

On International Women's Day (8th March 2013
and beyond) women will be invited to upload their
erotic art work on this web site.
www.womenseroticart.com

The aim is to create an on line community that
seeks to find new ways to articulate what it means
to be a women in relation to art and sexuality.

If sexuality used to be a place where real
people had a real connection…

Using the power of aesthetics
We are now here to readdress the balance

You can also do this today!
