Here's my buddy Craig Yoe
standing in front of a giant reproduction of Wally Wood's "Disney Memorial Orgy
" poster at New York City's Museum of Sex , which was originally published in Paul Krasner's The Realist
in 1967. Craig is the curator of an exhibit there called "Comics Stripped."
From the show's description:
As Tom of Finland famously said, "If I don't have an erection when I'm doing a drawing, I know it's no good." Whether produced as an individual work of art or mass produced, comics are a reflection of society and sexual fantasy where every sexual act that can be performed or imagined can exist.
In showcasing the coquettish to the most sexually explicit "dirty drawings," Comics Stripped will examine the history and cultural significance of the images, icons and illustrators that have entertained, educated (as well as equally misinformed) on the basics of sex and created a realm of sexual fantasy unlimited by the constraints of reality for generations.
Craig is also the editor of two books about comics and sex:
Clean Cartoonists' Dirty Drawings, and Secret Identity: The Fetish Art of Superman's Co-Creator Joe Shuster.
