Shades That Evoke the Sex [Sorta NSFW]

Everyone is a fan of sex, but some more than others.

And no, not in a perverted, creepy way. Sex can also be appreciated as an art form.

From Henry Miller’s novels to films like Caligula, these works aren’t seen as pornography, but as serious art. We are getting to the point where even vintage porn is now recognized as art.

Lighting designer Andrea Claire’s line of lamp shades uses imagery from 1970s erotica.

These images are all on the inside of the shade, but positioned just right, say above a bed, this shade could be the first and last thing someone sees in bed, potentially getting them in the mood whenever. 

Below is the row of images on the inside of the lamp above:

Here’s another lamp, this one containing even more images in a dot pattern:

So if the person you are bringing to bed is the the type to have a worn spine on his/her copy of Tropic of Cancer, this lamp shade is sure to impress.
