Only generative sex, limited to mere procreation,
could do without erotism, if such a thing were possible.
Fortunately, men and women are not keen on exclusively

Throughout their time together, they had
sexual relations regularly which were immortalized in the
collection referred to and photographic sessions,too. We will
soon publish a book which not only tells their story, but
which will feature the photos and samples of the collected
Another anonymous author´s opus has
come to us: 5 kilos of paper, thousands of pages of a comic
which tells the sexual history of mankind, from biblical times
up to now. 4000 pages drawn on both sides, on different kinds
of paper: publicity leaflets, copybook pages, toilet paper,
