Japanese Erotic Etched Ivory


Japanese Erotic Etched Ivory… Sinful Sunday #359

Due to the proliferation of Cock Shots brought on by Molly’s FebruaryPhotoFest2018, I thought I would give my faithful readers a rest and show you this amazing display of  Japanese Erotica.  I was installing artworks at a client’s house and saw these sitting on a window ledge. They were unlike any of the other art she had, and I commented as such and asked if I could take a photograph.  She said yes, that they were given to her by a dear friend over fifty years ago. She said they were quite old then.

Pieces of etched ivory held together by red thread.  About 3″ high. I wonder the original purpose, I also don’t think they are in any particular order, perhaps they might tell a story if they were.  Perhaps someone can shed some light.

Never let it be said that The Life of Elliott is not educational.

    I’m fairly certain these would be considered shunga carvings, though they are not technically shunga-netsuke (which are erotic carved miniature ivory figurines). I’d hazard them to be shunga panels.

    Panels, whether created on/with silk or bone, tend to depict sex scenes in much the way the kama sutra does.

    I love erotic art – I’ve seen lots of carvings like this in stores and museums in Asia, and they’re always delightful!

      Sure took me by surprise. The woman is 90 years old and my brain went into overdrive as I imagined her younger years. Her art collection is amazing. We had a great talk, although not about the ivory on her window sill.

    I’ve seen these little panels other places but as stand alones, not all tied together. I wonder if they’re intended to be displayed separately? I also wonder about who gave them to her and what their relationship was… 🙂

    Wow. I was enjoying the cock shots but these are stunning too and I have never seen anything like them. Really interesting 🙂

    These are a truly amazing and beautiful find.
    There are similar pieces in the Beate Unse Erotik Museum in Berlin. There’s probably someone there who knows a lot about them. In fact there must be: they’ve acquired a lot of Chinese and Japanese erotic images in different media.
    Me, I don’t know much about them, but I’d guess they’re 19th century, and that they’re meant to be looked at individually.
    That is, I don’t think they’re meant to tell a story, consecutively.

    But that’s a fascinating find, and a great photo!

    Damn! I just saw the Erotik Museum is closed, and they haven’t found a new home for the exhibits yet.

    Those must be such a treasure to have!

  21. Wow! Amazing find. It’s pretty serendipitous that you happened to be in the right place at the right time, and that the client was amenable to you photographing it.
