The Erotic Art of Namio Harukawa
Ever since I started this blog one of two things happen all the time: 1. friends send me pics of pulp cover art they have found and think I will like. 2. friends send me links to sex stories they think I’d like to cover, but sometimes, these fabulous friends of mine hit both marks in one fell swoop.
That’s why when one of the editors I work with sent me an email that said: ” This seemed very Olga to me: link“ I could only respond with the succinct message: “Good call.”
Japanese artist Namio Harukawa has a singular vision/obsession: women in charge. In virtually all of his paintings and drawings, women radiate the bemusement of the Mona Lisa while being sexually serviced by men who are little more than appendages to the women’s sexual organs. Astride the faces of these poor hapless males, the women are magnificent in their utterly cruel detachment.
Harukawa, who was born in 1947, has a style that evokes American pulp of the 1940s and 50s with more than just a little bit of Tom Of Finland thrown in.
In taking the phrases “giving head” and “sit on my face” quite literally, Harukawa has spun pussy power into the realms of the absurd and does it with skill and biting humor.

I couldn’t have said it better myself. And you know I’m a sucker for pulp art. I should add though, that when it comes to art I like contradictions. I might like the idea of sitting one someone’s face without a care for their well-being, but when it comes to reality every time a guy has asked me to sit on his face, I become overly aware and concerned with the whole I-don’t-want-t0-smother-you-by-accident thing. As much as I’d like to sit on that face, let go and go buck wild, I can’t get the sexual faux-pas of accidentally smothering someone out of my head long enough to enjoy myself. Sigh.
Then again, I hear tale of people who don’t mind a little smothering action. So, with that in mind, these erotic art pics by Namio Harukawa are for you smother lovers out there and for everyone who has ever been too afraid, too awkward, or too self-conscious to completely let go during a sexual act they might otherwise really enjoy. Ah, if only we could all take charge of our own pleasure like these magnificent ladies.
