Bondage Threesome by Gene Bilbrew
I don’t care much for calling things favorites. Really the objects are most beloved given certain contingencies and qualifications. Often merely transitory as your inner life shifts or you enlarge your acquaintance with other objects.
But for a few F/m artists I do have favorite works that have retained that status for years.
I remember showing this image to my former dearly beloved. She licked the woman. That startled me. I’d hardly noticed her. It was the masochist on his knees sobbing that fixed my attention.
Something about the way he was holding his face in his hands made me feel that he had gone to a special masochistic emotional space that in my life I’ve approached, only approached and only one time when I had my only S&M out-of-body experience.
I envy him.
Almost always if a BDSM photograph or illustration features both the top and bottom my response to the image is most heavily determined by what I see in the bottom. His emotional state. Women with arched eyebrows looking down their noses at you are fine. But I want someone to empathize with. (There are exceptions like this photograph of Midori.)
At some future date I’ll have to remember to complain at how little pleasure and fun is depicted in F/m imagery.
My thanks to The Art of Gene Bilbrew for the image.
