I read an article recently about Shunga, a form of Japanese erotic art that originates from the 10th Century but was most prevalent between 1603 and 1868. I’d never heard of it before and read it with interest. Apparently it was an evolution of Chinese medical textbooks!
Apparently the script reads:
Large octopus:Your ‘bobo’ is ripe and full, how wonderful! Superior to all others! to suck and suck and suck some more.
Maiden:Aah! Yes…it’s there!!! With the sucker, the sucker!! Inside, squiggle, squiggle, oooh! Oooh, good, oooh good! There, there! Theeeeeere!
The forth coming exhibition looks really interesting and I think I’ll have to try and find the time to pay it a visit.
