Things I'm Loving This Week

This mattress, which doesn't actually exist. I saw it on a friend's Facebook post recently and I can't get the image out of my head. Created by an Iranian designer, it won a number of design awards in 2007. I don't see how Design With Reach hasn't made a version of this yet. Although, making sheets work with it would be tricky.


We are ardent aficionados of middle of the night spoon sex and a variety of other fucking and snuggling positions that don't work so well with the presence of elbows. The magic slats of this mattress would make those problems disappear. Also, I think tucking my cold toes between the slats would make D very, very happy.

There's a new image reblogging site in town: Snatchly. It's your virtual pornboard!

With all the talk about Pinterest being very anti-smut, it's no surprise that a smut alternative has popped up. However, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that, for the moment, I prefer Tumbling my porn. However, there are lots and lots and lots of boobs. That all come from Tumblr. Perhaps it will catch on.

My Snatchly is currently empty. Feel sad for me. But I am working toward the moment when I can say to someone, "have I shown you my Snatchly?" Wink, wink.

For the culturally adroit and erudite among us, there's a new exhibition at the Met called Naked Before the Camera, which draws on the museum's legendary and incredibly extensive photography collection. Really, there is none like it in the world. The Times' review of the show is generally good. On the curator's choices the reviewer says: "Over all Mr. Daniel’s selections show how photographs of the body have intersected with the histories of painting, medicine, forensics, erotica, commerce, Surrealism and feminism, and how they hint at the advent of Conceptual, appropriation and performance art." Sounds very good to me! Fortunately the exhibition will still be up when we visit NYC later this year.

From the exhibition: The Estate of Brassai. A nude from the early 1930s by the Hungarian photographer Brassaï, who, along with Edward Weston, truncates the female body so radically that it resembles a kind of phallus or an undulant landscape. (Quotation from the NYT article)

What are YOU obsessing over on this fantastic Saturday?

  1. We were at the MET recently, but unfortunately a few days before this exhibit opened. We'll definitely have to go back soon.

  4. Ooooh I want this mattress too! My elbows are always in the way... I can think of some new sex positions, too!

    When I saw that art picture, I assumed it was a sex toy until I looked closer. I wish we were closer to NYC so I could take a look at that exhibit. It looks so interesting!

    1. Damned elbows! That picture is really weird. It looks like so many things other than a woman's body. Very cool.

  9. Thanks for the Snatchly tip...maybe I will find my way over there. I am still trying to figure out Tumblr! LOVE the pics I find on there, but no clue still how to repost them and give credit where credit is due *sigh* I used to think I was soooo smart. LOL!!!

    Those Boobs are fantastic!!!!!! Boobs boobs boobs

    I have to admit that mattress scares me a little. I imagine myself to keep falling down into a crevice...eek!

    ~Nat, clearly a wimp today.

    1. Re: Tumblr, I put a disclaimer at the bottom of the blog, and whenever I have the photo credit I use it. Also, BOOBS!
