Antique erotic Art
From a series of Qianlong paintings. (1796-1820) Possibly illustrations of Hong Lou Meng "The Dream of the Red Chamber" or "Story of the Stone") we observe a threesome of the kind seen often in the erotic prints. Here is takes place on a porch overlooking a lotus pond. One woman, behind, whom the man turns his head to kiss, grasps his penis and guides it into the other woman lying down who is clearly younger, with a smaller body frame and only budding breasts.
Erotic album leaf possibly attributed to northern figure master Leng Mei (ca. 1670-1742 or later) A herdboy is about to take the virginity (we assume) of a young girl, who may have come out onto the hillside to fly the kite that lies on the ground at left.It has a tinge of the near-perverse, which is somehow intensified here by the way the cow and nuzzling calf, behind, roll their eyes back to watch.

Although not pictured above, Zichy also depicted sex between partners of the same gender as well as sex with oneself, showing a remarkable open-mindedness for his day.
Zichy, a Hungarian-born artist who we spotted on Juxtapoz, worked as an art teacher before being elevated to the position of court artist for Czar Alexander II. According to the Encyclopedia of the Romantic Era, French poet Théophile Gautier called him a "monster of a genius."

Signed leaf from erotic album. The recessed area at left and the familiar combination of qin, official’s cap, and hastily-removed clothes, the blue-and-green landscape on the screen and the pencai or tray-landscapes on the foreground table, all belong to the distinctive type of interior scene invented by Gu Jianlong.
A leaf from unknown source. A woman leans back against a table, masturbating against the rounded end of the armrest. Her right hand holds a fan with a flower design embroidered on translucent gauze. Meanwhile, the man uses a razor to shave the woman's pubic hair. Beside them, one woman raises a ewer to pour a thin stream of water from high up onto the region of the clitoris, of another who lies back in the bathtub.
Leaf from an album: an eighteenth-century work by aq follower of Gu Jianlong. The females who look in from the doorway, one from behind a split-bamboo blind. Both raise their sleeved hands to their faces, expressing the same ambivalent feeling. We might suppose that the artist included two young women here because the central scene involves possibly one or two males.
