Famed Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf rebels against society’s obsession with youth in his photography series, ‘Mature.’

The provocative series features models in their seventies wearing scandalously racy lingerie in seductive and sexual poses.

The series is a reminder that people can be sexy at any age. We should celebrate our body and embrace our age rather than adhere to the society’s narrow-minded formulas and expectations.

Implications – In the last few years, there has been a mini revolution among the Baby Boomer generation. With over 8 million Boomers reaching the age of retirement this year, the children of post WW2 are ready to kick back their heels and enjoy themselves once again. This, combined with the phenomenon of Potentialism due to the economic downturn, has placed Boomers in the media spotlight. Age is no longer something to be feared or prevented, but is a badge of wisdom to be coveted.

Norman Lindsay – Artist

In seeking visual examples to help demonstrate our concepts surrounding being  “ripened to perfection” our minds turned to the stunning artworks and imagery of Norman Lindsay (1879-1969).

If a picture truely can speak a thousand words then please enjoy your introduction to the works and life of this extraordinary artist. The subject matter contained in these images, we suggest  is ripened to perfection and beautifully captured under the artist studied gaze. Ahead of his time and therefore most provocative – do see why.

Norman Lindsay is without doubt one of Australia’s most controversial artists having challenged many aspects of society’s accepted painting, etching, drawing, sculpting and writing principals.

Lindsay rejected Christianity, and his art depicts Bohemianism and Arcadian pantheism madly admixed in a fantasy world.

YOU HAVE AGREED THAT YOU ARE OVER EIGHTEEN YEARS OF AGE.

This blog claims no ownership for any images posted unless otherwise stated. Images on this blog are the property of the respective copyright owners.

Welcome

The fundamental purpose behind creating such a meeting point, as the name would suggest, is centred on exploring the concept of ripened to perfection.

This will occur through the lenses of the erotic, exotic and aesthetic. There will be an eclectic range of perspectives, interpretations and definitions of just what the term ripened to perfection may actually mean. Our intention is that all of these are worthy of further discussions and visual celebrations.

If it can be said that, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, is not ripened to perfection based on a very similar highly personalised viewpoint? Knowing the optimum moments to gather and savour something, to our minds, extends well beyond the culinary.

Thoughts and reports on the arts, fine foods, wine, locations and other hedonistic experiences we may also occur here. The sharing and savouring of such delights is intrinsically linked to our personal meaning of ripened to perfection.

The conversation and content will unashamedly be fashioned for people who are well vintaged. Although this will not be at the exclusion of the wealth of other erotic and visually artistic subject matter. 

The discussions and imagery we showcase and invite are intended to be fully inclusive and open to all life styles and preferences. As mentioned three key themes and creative expression will guide the ripened to perfection conversations and visual imagery.

These are the Aesthetic or Exotic or Erotic. Interconnect them if you so desire, but do tell or show what they mean to you. More updates and galleries to follow soon – any initial thoughts and contributions most welcome.

Thank you for visiting.

N.B. If you are the copyright holder, model, artist or photographer of any image or content published at this location and you want it credited or removed, please notify us asap and we will resolve any such requests.

Mature Erotica – a call for a new perspective

Our search continues in a (to date) unsuccessful attempt to find artistic and erotic still or moving photographic imagery of and for mature singles or couples!

It is, we believe, currently impossible to do so.

We are in the second half of our fifties and believe we are representative of a huge pool of active, modern thinking, physically fit and sexually informed people. Yes that includes the “boomers” and the creators and participants of the free love movements and so called sexual revolution.

Yet despite that,  this group are simple not catered for anywhere or featured within sensitively designed and produced pornography, visual arts, much erotic literature or mature narratives or celebrated in creative image making – especially photography.

An untapped market, growing in number and wealth! You would think the business case would be very compeling!

The imagery, which is typically available, is what we refer to as “pink” low level and totally non-erotic mainstream porn exposures or “flashes”. It is rather sad and reminiscent of early “dirty ”magazines of the past sold in brown paper bags.

The other attempts one can find are to be found in the many so-called “amateur” porn postings that have such poor production they are impossible to be bothered with and show mechanical sex, not erotica (Humans rutting is not at all our sort of cuisine).

Oh and yes do not start us on the so called disgustingly named and derogatory term “granny porn”, or older people with younger “hot” bodies and the so-called cougars etc., etc. Go away mainstream – you have enough of a market to last a lifetime of profits!

So it is our view that those people of a fine vintage need to reclaim and redefine the current narrow clichéd concept and lens of “what beauty and the erotic looks like”.

To demand that the sort of amazing high quality erotic imagery featuring younger subject matter (that can be found on numerous sites and blogs) become more inclusive to all ages and sexual preferences and lifestyles. That the limited range of erotic imagery made that embraces a feminine sensitivity and perspective join with us and also feature the mature examples that are available.

It is time to feature all those who are ripened to perfection, both physically and by life experiences. Let us become a key part of the celebration and creation of a realistic erotic milieu.

Here is some images as food for thought – we have been searching and searching for ideas!
