mister motley: straaterotiek

street eroticism


Heske ten Cate:

"What is the latest issue of Mister Motley about? 'Sex'. "Oh really? Lots of nakedness and stuff? "(A wink follows, directed at me) 'That too, yes, but not only that. "Ah. Exciting! "(A nudge with an elbow in my side). This type of people should be surprised that more eroticism can be found than just in naked bodies. Is it even worth the trouble to explain that eroticism, excitement and intimacy are brought to us in many forms: more than just in flesh and nakedness? Before we start telling one more story about the over-sexualized society, internet porn, commercials, it seems te be appropriate to provide a visual example. A few days ago Maartje Jaquet emailed Mister Motley with her street photography of folded mattresses, lying cozily in a spoons position on the corner of the pavement, tender green moss-curls full of life finding their way between two pavement stones and a perfectly bent orange tube of which the function is not immediately clear, but the purpose of the picture is: a love tube. A kiss tube. A hyper-intimate tube."
