Although probably only known to the erotica initiates, the prolific and talented British illustrator Tom Sargent (1943) was the chief provider of illustrations to the magazines issued by The Erotic Review and its sister company Erotic Print Society.
His bawdy but great illustrations are populated by curvaceous gals like naughty schoolgirls, impatient nurses, obliging secretaries or even kinky policewomen. They all have swagger and show their shapely, bouncing tits and their shuddering buttocks like jelly pudding during an earthquake without restraint. The sensual encounters with their partners are always with mutual consent and shared enthusiasm. Besides the solo illustrations, Sargent also produced comic strips which display his skill in illustrating sexy story lines.
Unashamed Tennis Players
Sargent’s characteristic British wit can be found in such illustrations as the one depicting two unashamed tennisplayers who surrender to their sensual urges during a mixed doubles tennis match at Wimbledon (Fig.7) or the gay encounter in a public toilet between a businessman (or office worker), still wearing his bowler hat, a labourer and another man who has stuck his member through a peephole (Fig.8).
A nice overview can be found in the book Fireside Orgies and other drawings (Fig.1) that offers an anthology of his drawings he produced for magazines and also some delights from his own “personal” collection…
