Dick Pic Tips

Ariane is heating up the kitchen with a beautiful blowjob

When it comes to the porn I personally look at, a lot of it features beautifully shot dicks, but that’s on my terms. Now, dick pics are controversial, but there is one guiding rule: make sure your dick pic is wanted before you send it. Don’t send it out all willy nilly… Ha. But, assuming that your dick pic is either wanted or you’re just putting it up on a Tumblr or Flickr or something like that for your own enjoyment (regardless of whether or not other people look), you can do a lot to make your dick pic actually palatable. There are good pictures and bad pictures, and that includes pictures of dicks.

This delightful and relatively succinct explanation on Jezebel from the curator of Critique My Dick Pic gives you everything you need to know. Get personal, be creative, try different angles, remember the value of interesting lighting, include hands for an added flair… While shooting dick pics may not be for everyone, we encourage those of you who might want to give it a go to make it part of your creative repertoire… After all, whether it’s for a partner or for yourself, there is something very nice about feeling confident about your body and specifically your genitals. Just don’t get TOO confident and send it to anyone who hasn’t asked first. Especially not accidentally your whole contact list.

Have you ever taken a dick pic before? What was it like? Did you put this level of thought into it, or did you just kind of wing (wang) it? And hey, if you wind up taking one and sending it into Critique My Dick Pic, let us know! I, for one, am always curious.

Naked Ballet


Naked Ballet by Irondell31

Here we are again with more fine art and sexuality together. This time it takes the form of dance. Ballet is seen as all prim and proper, though the leotards often leave little to the imagination. But why stop at flimsy fabrics and barely there tutus when you could watch ballet completely in the nude? As an ex-ballerina (I took it VERY seriously until my breasts got too darn big!) I have always sort of been fascinated by dance’s potential for eroticism, and also just seeing how the body reacts to this kind of exaggerated and extreme movement without clothing.

This particular video has been making the rounds for a while, but there are many more out there like it. This is a suite from Swan Lake which is fairly commonly performed and rehearsed in ballet classes. It’s funny to see choreography that you know (or at least a variation on it) with so much… bounce. And really, that’s what these videos are about. They have full shots, but they also have lots of close-ups of the most intimate parts to titillate. This isn’t anything you’re going to get from a night at the ballet!

I couldn’t find out much more about the people behind this video, but I’d love to know more! What do you think about seeing the human body in movement like this? Is it strictly interesting, or is it arousing too? I’ve always wanted to try a nude contact improv dance class… Things could get very interesting, and possibly sticky too.

Ah, The Arts

Ah, the arts. We at The Art of Blowjob like to appreciate arts beyond oral sex, so this felt like a natural extension. Some of you may not know, but my background is actually in classical music. Also: I have breasts. Shocking, right? Up until now, I hadn’t realized that there was an appropriate method to combine the two (asides from a lot of cleavage in my recital dresses) but model/blogger/all around funny person Sara X has found a way! She makes Mozart SO much fun with a take on Eine kleine Nachtmusik featuring her immense breasts moving to the beat.

Now, when I initially read the accompanying article to this piece, I thought she was making different tones by pushing (smacking?) her breasts together, which would have been extraordinary. There’s no sound, but she does have some seriously toned pecs to get her fairly substantial bust moving like that. It’s like a very special kind of fantasy:

I’m sure you’re all doing what I did as soon as I watched this video… Trying it yourself. I’m pleased to say that I can make my 36Ks dance with the best of em, but the real trick would be singing an aria while making my breasts move at the same time. If I ever accomplish this task, I’ll take it to Youtube… I’m feeling like Der Hölle Rache would have just the right blend of dexterity and fan appeal.

What do you think of this style of artistry? Would you ever go see a concert featuring erotic takes on classical music? Cause there is more to come if you would!

Sex, An Advertisement

I don’t know if you’ve heard of this thing… It’s kind of out there… It’s called SEX. Oh, you have? Well, good. I know that it’s easy to forget about (HA!) but there is now an advertisement for sex so that you remember to have it. Well, actually, it sounds a lot more simple a concept than it is, and I’m being silly here… It’s actually a pretty great idea!

This is a short commercial-style film made by Matus The First and Konstantin Minnich of the Metropolitan Film Institute. They put a lot of effort into making something cinematic and compelling to underline just how important sex is as a part of life. The voiceover is clear and to the point that we can often stagnate as sexual beings, forgetting that exploration and intimacy are the keys to a more fulfilling sex life… and a few very out there fantasies always help, too.

The imagery is a little jarring. Something about phallic objects and pencil sharpeners just make me cringe, but I get the idea and it certainly works for a lot of the metaphors. I really wish something like this would be running on television everywhere, ideally with more caveats about safety, of course. It may sound reductive, but I think there would be a lot of improvements in the world and in individual lives if we prioritized happy, giving, creative sex as a value in our culture. What do you think of this commercial and its message?

The Day to Day Lives of Kinky People

Photo of kinky couple by Forest McMullin

I find this photographic project absolutely charming and I think it’s the type of thing that’s important to share here for a variety of reasons. Photographer Forest McMullin has been shooting a variety of kinky and/or sexually non-normative people (what does that even mean?), both in their everyday “civilian” clothing and in their kinkiest moments and ensembles. The result is a series called Day & Night, showing that many people have dualities and sides to themselves outside of what they present outwardly. In this case, McMullin focuses on sexuality, but the larger message is that we all have much more going on than what’s on the surface.

Outside of the obvious messages to take away from the series, I think this is of particular interest to a lot of the people who like the work we do. There are stigmas and assumptions made about the types of people who like porn or who are “pervy” in any type of way, like that side of ourselves must be hidden, and certainly not celebrated. With photos like this, showing very clearly the alternate experience of a person, we are bringing it to light and celebrating it. There is nothing wrong with being kinky, just as there’s nothing wrong with enjoying porn.

We are always concerned about appearing/being “normal”, but this is “normal” for so many people out there. The only reason we don’t know it is because we’re encouraged to hide these sides of ourselves. This doesn’t mean you have to shout your love of porn or (insert kink here) off the rooftops if it doesn’t work for you, but there is value in being mindful of the fact that openness doesn’t necessarily mean automatic shame.

A Photo Update with Heidi and Jessy

Jessy and Heidi touching each other

It’s almost shocking to type this… It’s been over 2 years since we posted a photo update on The Art of Blowjob. Slowly but surely, we started to “realize” that videos were the wave of the pornographic future… Or at least, that’s what the industry was trying to make us believe. We still took photos, but they were used as promotional pictures and teasers as opposed to the main event.

Over time, we got into the habit of focusing all our attention on video, except for one thing… We missed including photos as part of the beautiful porn experience. Photography is a highly artistic medium and it brings out a very different side to what we do. It’s nice to include it as an option for those who like to tease themselves with intense moments of connection before proceeding to the non-stop action of a video.

We decided to bring back the photos with a stunning set featuring Heidi and Jessy (and a little bit of Gabriel for good measure) to show the awesome sensuality between these two beautiful women. They are caught on film with warm sunlight on their skin as they play around together, kissing and caressing each other and occasionally allowing Gabriel to have a little touch, too. This is teasing at its very best, showcased in a truly artful medium. Let us know if you want to see more photos on the site! We’re happy to oblige. Of course, the videos stay… We’re just interested in playing around with all our beautiful possibilities to showcase sensuality.

Welcome to Makeoutville, Population: You

Sexy kiss between blonde Jessy and brunette Heidi

No, Makeoutville is not an actual place, unfortunately… It’s a photo project on Tumblr featuring really beautiful shots of lipstick smeared faces after a very successful makeout session. Now, as someone who shoots blowjob porn, I take pride in keeping my lipstick purely on my lips, but these kissers are all about a big ol’ smudge. It’s grotesque in a way, and yet somehow very sexy and compelling.

The photographer is the person who gives the kisses (the kisser?) with a whole bunch of vibrant lipstick, and then the subjects are those who have been smooched by the photographer (the kissee?) and they are left with a bunch of lipstick on their faces. The result is quite breathtaking. Here are a few examples:

tumblr_m9x11jk33e1rqbowso1_1280 tumblr_m9xnt4oPpy1rqbowso1_1280 Kissed and photographed for Makeoutville

Now all I can think of is that I’d like this photographer to head up to Toronto and plant a big one on me so I can be a subject of one of these beautiful works of art. Plus, if so many people are lined up to be on Makeoutville, he can’t be that bad of a kisser, either!

Would you ever be on a part of a photography project like this? And what’s your opinion on lipstick smudging… Including on penises?

Openings

No, not those openings. When I’m not making porn, blogging about sexy things, shooting other people having sex, engaging in sexuality-related community events, twirling my tassels or hosting my sexy storytelling night, I actually have a rich non-sex oriented side of myself. One of those sides is my musical/theatre side. I’m very happy to say that tonight is opening night of one of my many side gigs. I was lucky enough to collaborate on a new theatrical work, flexing my teaching muscles to get a bunch of performers to learn a colossal amount of music in a rather short period of time and then sing it as beautifully as possible.

From time to time I take on students (when I have enough free time) for coachings, especially focusing on breath support and stamina for more intense works, as well as working on conquering more in-depth vocal challenges. Though I decided that the stage (at least in a professional for profit capacity) is not for me, I love how often I still have a hand in helping people look and sound better in their own performance journeys.

As weird as it sounds, I do somewhat relate this to sexuality in my mind. Coaching people to see the potential in their bodies as attainable and helping them break down the barriers keeping them from what they want is exciting, whether it’s intensely public or extremely personal. Through giving advice, trying to open dialogues and leading by example, I hope to help people engage with that part of themselves and see even more intense forms of sexuality as possible.

For now, it’s time to sit back and watch the work unfold. Maybe it’ll inspire me to find new and more involved ways of coaching sexuality as well as just voices! Break a leg, everyone!

Come Join Me in Bed

Join brunette Ariane for a nude blowjob

This is the first official blowjob video that I shot and edited 100% by my lonesome without supervision or even much feedback. It’s kind of REALLY cool to get this experience, especially since it’ll be an ongoing thing. I can’t totally tell if it feels all that different from the traditional output of The Art of Blowjob, but whether it does or not, the style feels really natural to me. I like that it’s a celebration of Ariane’s body and sensuality, trying to focus on all of her both as individual parts and as her whole self while she gives a gorgeous blowjob.

The blowjob itself is breathtaking, as usual, and I tried to work with various angles of Ariane’s face to show the many sides of her beauty. She’s such a stunner in person, so I want to make sure that the complexities of her attraction are made visible to those of you who have the videos to go on. The more I can do to make this a fully-formed experience, the better.

There are so many challenges to making it all fit together, and I’m still working on learning the best angles, the nuances of focus and, you know, just all of Final Cut Pro, so it’s a process… Still, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. More than that, I’m really excited to get better and better, honing my craft and turning into a filmmaker rather than just churning out still videos, you know? It’s all art. This is what I’ve always wanted… And there is so much to it. I hope you’ll enjoy!

It’s an Art

The choice of this site’s name is not by accident… Though it may at times cause a prospective viewer to crack a smile at the thought of a sex act being considered art, the fact of the matter is that there is absolutely an artistry to giving really wonderful oral sex, and truly all other sex acts. But, what is art? It’s rooted in skill, but there’s also a deep sense of inspiration and passion. It’s this perfect blend of aptitude and attitude that makes The Art of Blowjob so unique. There are plenty of blowjob videos out there if you aren’t picky. You can watch people go on autopilot as they bob away, see expert deep throating bordering on sword swallowing devoid of any spark or witness a completely passive blowjob without any attempts to engage in the act… But where’s the fun in that?

What makes a blowjob art is seeing the sincere delight that some people experience when they get to do what they love. It’s a gleam in the eye of an eager giver as tongue swirling gives way to gentle sucking. There’s something so sexy about genuine enthusiasm in sex. It’s amazing to watch people who are genuinely aroused by giving blowjobs, who are excited to try new things and who are able to convey this in simple but meaningful ways.

Capturing this art on film, and doing so in an equally artful manner, makes something beyond porn… It’s something very special to behold. By focusing closely on the blowjob and taking the time to really delve into every detail, we’re allowing the viewer an unparalleled experience. It’s not quite like getting the blowjob yourself, but it’s so raw, visceral and intense that it’s not that far off, either.
