Last year a bunch of artists gave the proverbial steups to the conventional appreciated art in our fair island, an decided to hold their own show with an Erotic Art Theme. Though the mainstream media practically ignored the event, the online independent media channels of artists, bloggers, videographers, and magazines lapped it up and enjoyed every "tittilating" moment. (Shameless pun inserted! :)

Erotic Art Week 2009
This year more artists have signed on happily, and are shamelessly charting the movement of exploring the theme of sexuality against the mainstream's "abstinence only cover-up those paintings" ideology.
There is what promises to be a delectable assortment of visual, audial, and flavourfull erotic menu, with restaurants, clubs, cafe's, studio workshops all coming together in the name of Art.
