Remembering a sensuous nude by Andrew Loomis…

One of the reasons I write this blog is simply to give readers an idea of what one porn writer’s work has been like. I also do it to get readers interested in my erotica ebooks, which are available on Amazon here. I have basically been a hard-working and knowledgable writer/editor, with forays into nude photography, porn screenwriting, and even modeling and acting.

Of the various influences I’ve had on my work in porn/erotica/whatever-you-wanna-call-it, a strong one has always been the culture of illustration and pinups. When I was growing up, my family had various art instruction books in the house, two of which are highly regarded today–Andrew Loomis’ Fun With A Pencil and Figure Drawing For All It’s Worth. You can find the latter on Amazon here, and the former will be re-released soon. After many years Loomis’ books have come back back into print; before that they were hard to find collector’s items. I was recently lucky to find a battered old copy of Fun With A Pencil at the flea market, a late printing from the 1960s, and I picked it up. It got me thinking about him again.

In the numerous offices and cubicles I’ve had over the years while editing magazines, I always put up examples of art that inspire me. For example, in the 1980s I had a few pinups by the late Dave Stevens, who created The Rocketeer and was important in the revival of interest in Bettie Page. You can see his amazing work here.

And this picture by Andrew Loomis has always been one of my favorites since I was a teenager, and hung on the wall of my cubicle in the 1990s when I was editing Sex Acts, Cheeks, and Girls Over 40 magazines out at the publisher in New Jersey, as well as writing stories, interviews, and columns for Leg Action, Swank, and D-Cup for the same company.

Fun with a pencil, indeed, although this is from Figure Drawing For All It's Worth.

Although the magazines I edited were as hardcore as any on the newsstands, I’ve always loved the softer and more sensual kinds of images as well, as exemplified by the Loomis nude above. The magazines I edited from 1981-2009 were therefore a mix of the pinup and porn aesthetic.

I sigh for thigh!

 

Spring must be in the air…my ebook Toes Are For Sucking was selling rather briskly today in the U.S., the UK, and Germany. Either all the girls on the street in their minis are getting readers in a fetishy mood…

…or maybe readers enjoyed my foot fetish story “The Pit” at The Femdom Art of Sardax and decided to give one of my Kindle ebooks a try! 🙂

Just click on the link “My ebooks” on the right under Bookmarks if you want to see more at Amazon about this kinky little tale about a middle-aged guy who gets a lesson in foot and leg worship from his employee, a pretty and dominant typist.

Speaking of typists, here’s the cover of a cool book I found, also on Amazon here…love the title and concept…and wish I could afford the price: $169.00 a copy!

Anyway, I have legs on my brain a little tonight. Thighs especially. I like thighs…

And the picture below reminds me of a Japanese stripper I knew, who would sit and have a drink with me in the club and keep my hand playfully trapped between her thighs while we talked. I loved it!

Meanwhile, besides legs, other things on my mind include a couple of my pieces in current magazines…

Under my other writing name Neil Wexler, I have an interesting review column entitled “Stuff” in June 2012 Swank, where I discuss everything from a fantastic book about John Wilkes Booth entitled My Thoughts Be Bloody, to a 1950s film noir named The Big Bluff, to massage oils from KM Fantasy and futuristic dildos from California Exotic Novelties. I’m a man of far-ranging interests! 😉

And in the August 2012 Gallery, I have my newest “Horny Time Traveler” column, wherein I “visit” 1956 through the pages of a magazine devoted to a photographer named Charles Kell who immortalized luscious models like Bettie Page and Judy O’Day on film. Everybody knows about Bettie Page, but do yourself a favor and make a Google image search on Judy O’Day–she was a hottie too, with a very sexy face and sexy bod. There were many great models in the 50s who gave Bettie a run for those modeling fees! Check out Judy here on Flickr to see her as a Devil Girl in the first issue of Satan magazine, and how do you like this Judy shot I found here on Tumblr?

If I could, I’d sure enough build a time machine to go back in time to get my hands trapped between the thighs of Judy O’Day–as well as some other parts of my anatomy!!

Punchy from all that horny time-traveling!

I found the picture of the legs in pantyhose and heels at Some_legs’ photostream at Flickr, and the Creative Commons license for fair use of that image is here.
