Arthur Tress’s Hermaphrodite

Hermaphrodite behind Venus and Mercury (1973).

We had Austin Spare and absinthe yesterday. Looking at some of Arthur Tress‘s photographs today I was reminded me of one of Spare’s hermaphrodite studies (below). The photo is from a series, Theater of the Mind, which Tress created during the 1970s.

    The work of this photographer has always seemed to me very interesting.

    I, as a straight male, some how find the top photograph to be a bit erotic and arousing. Frankly, it turns me on to see a male with a female sex and the background is flawless. Who would want to screw the brains out of a young confused male…just saying, its pretty interesting.

    Is that a real hermaphrodite in the top photo?

    Speaking of which, what do you make of the figures from this Prussian coat of arms dating to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries(?): http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/aa/Wappen_Deutsches_Reich_-_K%C3%B6nigreich_Preussen_%28Grosses%29.png
