Testosterone, French Ero, & David Lynch’s Foot Fetish

Saturday, January 19th, 2008

Just posting links to three articles from the last week that I thought were interesting:

First, the Wall Street Journal has an article about testosterone levels in men. The article is mostly about the dangers of low testosterone levels as men age. But the article also talks about studies that show a relationship between marriage and testosterone levels in men. It breaks down like this:

  • Most Testosterone: Single men.
  • Less Testosterone: Married men.
  • Least Testosterone: Married men, with multiple wives.

I’m not sure exactly what it all means, but it must have some implications for the sex lives of married couples? Check out the full article for more info.

Second, the New York Times has an article called “A Library Exhibition Not for the Children’s Room” about an erotic show now on at the National Library of France in Paris. The show includes over 350 sexually explicit literary works, manuscripts, engravings, lithographs, photographs, film clips, and other items. Included is the handwritten manuscript of the Marquis de Sade’s novel “Les Infortunes de la Vertu”. According the article,

Sadism, masochism, bestiality, inflated genitalia and the most imaginative sexual fantasies and athletic poses are given their due. To avoid complaints that a publicly supported institution is corrupting the country’s youth, no one under 16 is admitted.

The “Hell at the Library, Eros in Secret” show runs through March 22, 2008. If you’re in Paris before then, it might be worth checking out. I can’t imagine my local library doing a similar show anytime soon.

Third, I read about this erotic art show called “Fetish” featuring the photography of director David Lynch. The show is a collaboration between Lynch and fashion designer Christian Louboutin. Louboutin created some one-of-a-kind exotic shoes for the models and Lynch took pictures of them wearing the shoes, but otherwise nude. The show had already closed by the time I saw the article, but you can still see some images at the website of Galerie du passage in Paris. For larger pictures from the Lynch photo show, try this link (the site isn’t in English, but just click on the numbers to see more pics.)

That’s all for now. More updates later!
