Okay, so I am deciding to create an X-Art special with their most beautiful models when I can find enough images suitable for Graceful Nudes. Tiffany is absolutely beautiful and she is one of the top models at X-Art, and like most of their models, she is no real exception to their somewhat implicit rule about their most beautiful models doing hardcore.
I find her to be very beautiful.
It almost seems as if every model on X-Art did hardcore, and Maryjane is not an exception. As always, I am neutral to that fact. I think that Maryjane is beautiful, and I am not anti-sex or anti-porn per se. I am just stating that as a fact. As this is a somewhat new phenomenon to the world of artistic nude, which is porn that is striving to be artistic. I took a slight vacation and I am coming back to find lots of beautiful models, like Victoria Rae Black and Hayden Winters, who actually did hardcore but still managed to appear in artistic nudes. I think we had Stoya and Faye Reagan before, in addition to Eufrat and a couple of others. The exception to that seems to be Sophie of FEMJOY and Carisha of FEMJOY.
Anyway, I think that this gallery still has some beauty to it, and even their porn still maintains some of that beauty.
Okay, so this is the second time for me to add galleries from x-art after their major transition to pornography. It is also one of the rare time in which I am adding a model who has a hardcore video on the same site.
I am not going to feature porn here on Graceful Nudes, but I think that what x-art are doing is none of my business as long as they manage to create some art now and then. Now FEMJOY (Joymii) and Watch4Beauty actually have hardcore, and everyone is joining their bandwagon, either by doing insertions, or explicit boy-girl scenes and orgies. I am not justifying their action, but I am saying that I am now inadvertently promoting porn without knowing that much about it. I think that Tabitha is very beautiful, and I think that this matters more than what she did there, or what she is going to do. Do you agree?
This set almost sets a gloomy post-apocalyptic mood, which somewhat suits the current world situation.
Some of those images are truly breathtaking. The images show a range of human emotions: pride, superiority, and some unique mysterious human quality. Tatyana's beauty is an instrument to set the stage for that. This is an example of how artistic nudes can influence the mind and rekindle hidden emotions and the hope that lingers in all of us.
Man never looks insignificant next to a mountain or a megalith, for man can force those mountains to follow his/her wish. A megalith only proves the outstanding ability of the human mind.
Our appreciation of who we are, of our abilities, of our brains - what made us reign supreme over this planet, is what keeps the world going. If our minds are blind, then we can neither see beauty, or create anything of value.
This is a gallery from David Allio with the wonderful model Ariela Bat Shiva. I hope that you will like it.
The greatest thing about beauty is that it offers hope in a dysfunctional world. It gives the working man or woman a reason to be happy about their lives, to be glad at what they've accomplished, to aspire for more, and to live with a lasting sense of inner-peace and self worth.
A quick hour spent listening to the addictive evening news bulletin only tells you how alienating our world is. There are people dying in one of the most miserable and unlucky continents on this planet: people seeing their loved ones die, and who still have to fight for survival, and yet, the rest of the world can't offer its help thanks to a group of militants who are supposedly religious. I do not know how anyone can claim to be following a religion or even a primeval code while denying help to fellow human beings. A quick spin upwards shows a peaceful nation that has learned how much damage a single man with a gun can do. Another spin to the west, and we find a nation in which the politicians, who by definition are suffering from dissociation and a tinge of sardonic egomania, deciding on gambling with the livelihood of millions or probably billions of people around the world just to satisfy their schadenfreude and a burning desire to humiliate a man that they do not agree with. A last scroll to the eternally turbulent Middle East, and its a flashback to the fall of the soviet union, but it is more bloody. How can you point a tank's barrel at a condo that houses tens of families, press a button, and see it disappear in a few milliseconds without having any guilt about it? Do you know how long it took people to build it? to decorate their homes? to collect their memories in small gemstones and statues? Little tim who saved his entire allowance to buy a poster of his favorite superhero only to be disappointed by realizing that the superhero can't protect him against the appaling cults of self-worship. How can you do it so that you can stay in power? a power that you supposedly derive from the same people that you're killing, and whose houses you are destroying? How can you send your militias of terrorists to hurt innocent civilians whose only guilt is asking for their human dignity and their basic rights? That's all beyond my comprehension.
Dictators and terrorists lie without any guilt on TV, they murder people and do their best to destroy hope. Patriotism is shoved down our throats to keep us submissive and to make us accept what we're supposed to challenge, but waving a flag doesn't guarantee a better future. There's a reason hope was the last thing in Pandora's box. No matter how much adulation and worship some murderer gets, there's always the hope of justice, which, according to history, often manifests itself in an apparition of Ma'at or Themis.
In such an artificially miserable world, it almost feels as if all our work is ultimately ephemeral. There's beauty in what we create, in our relationships with our partners, or even in our dreams of those relationships. As ordinary citizens of the world, all we want to do is to create something remarkable and impart a part of our soul on it, to find an understanding partner, and to be able to have a cup of coffee late at night from your balcony in peace, but it seems that some people consider that too much to ask for.
We need to have pride in who we are; some glimpse of hope that asserts that we're unlike those selfish egomanical personalities who infest every government of this planet. That there are other human beings who are ethical, and who don't make headlines just for being the great people that they are. There's beauty about being human. We can look at skyscrapers with awe, or at bridges that encroach upon the domain of whales and defy the elements of nature, or at our footsteps on the moon. Those are all objects that represent the greatness of who we are, of what we can accomplish. Those are great reminders that we are just as good at building things as we are at destroying them. Most of us didn't actually contribute into the creation of those objects, but they're a symbol of the achievements of the human mind, a reminder of the value of our brains.
Nudes are also a magnificent form of beauty. They are about absolute human attributes; They aren't about the model or her body: A picture can only give you a tantalizing glimpse of a personality, and a perfect human form can be generated using simple 3D software. The form in those images is familiar, it resembles us, and it allows our minds to construct a personality around what our brains recognizes as beautiful human beings. We give them personalities, we give them the attributes that we truly value, we turn them into legendary superheroes, and then we start considering what we need to do to resemble that image, to be more like them, to be as beautiful, and to be more proud of who we are. We all have an image of who we want to be inside us, beauty comes dressed in that image to remind us of our long-forgotten dreams and aspirations.
It is a genuinely selfish value. It is a mirror of who we are, and at the same time it reminds us to make the most of our lives, to love ourselves, and to learn to wish ourselves better lives without feeling guilty about it. When it's a person of a different color in the image, or a disabled person, or someone who's different in any way, it teaches us to empathize.
In my humble opinion, that's the message of beauty that no censor can destroy, that no beauty-hater can sabotage with any amount of vitriol of destructive hypocritic self-righteousness. A person who looks in a mirror and sees the monsters that they have become will certainly do their best to destroy those mirrors.
There's so much to live for, and the world will remain beautiful as long as we believe in who we are and believe in our beauty.
A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by a British photographer called Allan T. Scott, who sent me some breathtaking samples of his work with some very beautiful British nude models.
We decided on showing a small sample of his works here. With three alluring English models who prove that beauty isn't confined to Eastern Europe, and that there are some very talented nude photographers in the English-speaking world.
I admit that my favorite is Roseanna. Her poses are breathtaking and there's something captivating about her eyes. I hope that you like those sets, and if you want to see some more, you should probably head to FemNudes, that's where the rest of the collection of Allan's British nudes can be found.
It has been a long while since I last saw Kings in a set, this one looks recent, so it's probably not from their archives.
Kinga is one of the few models at FEMJOY who actually care about who they work with, I had a discussion with a photographer who contacted her, and she said that she only does tasteful nudes, that means no spread legs, no gynecology today covers, and nothing that may objectify her. I truly admire that in a model.
This explains why this set doesn't follow Stefan's new trend of spread legs. I just don't get it, when you're good at capturing beauty, what's the need for the destructive effect of having a model assume a very strange post just to satisfy some viewers? You destroy your reputation and take the beauty out of it by doing so. Art should appeal to out higher senses, there's nothing wrong with sexy art, or art that is both erotic and beautiful, but you can't just juxtapose some fake sexuality over a beautiful image and calling it erotic art. If you have no respect for sexuality or aren't satisfied with what you're doing, your dissatisfaction makes it to the final images. I do believe that Stefan at the moment is being overworked, and I sympathize with all the pressure that he's dealing with, but erotica has its own artists. Some artists are just good at art nudes, others are good at erotic art, and some are good at both. I think that Stefan belongs to the first group, and what he's doing right now doesn't make any sense IMHO.
The third and last gallery of today: Siren with Bianca. This is a classic bikini gallery; a gallery in which a model slowly takes off her bikini at a lake or a beach. The difference: It's a colorful yellow bikini. This may be an innocent mistake or just an attempt by Tyson Laroche to make her look more of a gypsy girl.
I do like the resulting images, yellow really matches the color of her skin, and the general lighting of the set. This also is one of the sets of Bianca that I do like. It took a while for me to put it up here, but better late than never.
The second gallery for today is Gypsy Passage. I don't know if Bianca is a real gypsy or not; she certainly has some gypsy features. The title is certainly fascinating.
A short red dress, a beautiful model, and a wonderful seashore nearby with a clear sky are a great combination for a gallery that I have been admiring for quite a while. I hope that you will like it.
