Jeff Faerber's Vigorous Cardiovascular Fitness and One Half of a Duo

The modern shunga artist Jeff Faerber has just finished two new paintings. I love the yellow coloring details in the first one, the ode to Hokusai‘s The Great Wave featured on the folding screen in the background and the orgasmic whipped cream spray…

Reclining couple endure thirty minutes of vigorous cardiovascular fitness (with an average heart rate of 125 bpm) in order to justify their reward: consuming frosty locally sourced desserts with whipped cream.‘ (2018)

An amusing adaptation in the above painting is the dialogue during sex with the woman communicating, through her iPhone, with an external source. In the traditional Japanese shunga the dialogue was often a vulgar exchange of words between the portrayed protagonists.  The purple eggplant emoji has various sexual meanings in contemporary communication.
