The Lucky Star

Photo essay: Taking a peak at an erotic art event

by Sid Sarshar
The other night Sassan, Ali and me (Sid) were walking in the Mission district of San Francisco and ran into this erotic art event. It was a cold night and Ali wanted to warm up, so we decided to go in and take a peak. We spent 15 minutes in this gallery and I took these pictures. I found The expressions of the people very telling. I hope you find it interesting. By the way, she is dancing to Madonna's "Lucky Star".

ممه از فریدون توللی

Shazde Asdola Mirza


آن یار که مخمورم از نرگس فتانش

لرزان ممه‌ای دارد در چاک گریبانش

تا این ممه می‌‌لرزد، قلب همه می‌‌لرزد

می‌ لرزد و می‌‌لرزد گیسوی پریشانش

Anonymous x, That's just extra brains! Thanks for noticing, I know you NEEEVVEEER compare!

No sweetie
Actually I’m very good looking with a very nice body; I have those big Persian eyes, kamar barik, nice tities and happily married. My husband loves it when I wear my jeans. Your comments say volumes about your shortcomings. Now I look at your ad, sorry your picture, I see your head is too big for your body!


Very good!

I love the fact that the woman is fat and not one of those skinny moulded gym apes.


The pictures were great.

Dear Anonymousx,

Something tells me you’re large and in charge!

No, I’ve never been fat. But never say never, keep hope alive. Maybe one day I can be a contestant on the Biggest Loser and you can cry for me.

Unhealthy bodies (fat, anorexic, alcoholic etc) are unattractive. You may disagree but that would be another indication that you maybe be ROTUND and unhappy.

Are there so many chaghaleh badooms around now that it’s now a crime to point out the obvious without getting accused of having low self esteem? So be it. A previous comment noted these people are out of shape too. But he didn't use the f word, so it was ok I guess.

If you have never compared people, then you are an alien from outer space and definitely either so conceited that you don’t notice other people or so ugly that you’ve blocked people from your view. Maybe you’re just lying or you wrote a comment without really thinking about what you were saying. Yes, I’m guilty and I do on occasion compare looks. I don't think that's abnormal.

I think Angelina Jolie is better looking than Oprah but I would never say it to her face, lest she sit on me! I’m confident that most people compare people and on occasion, they evaluate their own looks too. It usually happens when we buy clothes and want to look nice. Or when we get a hair cut and don’t want to look…ugly.

It may be difficult for you to accept because you are too politically correct, but if you look up ugly and pretty in the dictionary they are words that can be used and have meanings. The ideals can change throughout time but in this day and age, fat or a woman with hairy armpits isn’t pretty! They can be wonderful people but…

And no, that’s not ALL I think about.

I've never seen a fat person who didn't absolutely love to say others have low self esteem.

Why as soon as someone gets naked people call it art?

(They did not publish my previous comment, in order not to hurt you I guess :-)

You surely suffer from lack of confidence. People with low self esteem keep comparing themselves with others and want to know who's pretty, who's ugly.

You have told us you wear size zero, aha aha, but could it be your were fat in childhood?


Due to populare demand, mooooore pics

I liked the pictures, the black and white photography worked well and I liked looking at the faces.

But it's the truth damn it, ugly chicks, have so much self confidence. Yes I know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we're all beautiful inside...yeah yeah. Couldn't they get nice looking models that weren't fat or had hairy underarms (who can respect a woman that doesn't take care of unwanted hair?). There's something to be said about the place of all body shapes in art and all that. But who the heck chose these people? Adam ghahti boodeh labod.

Maybe I just don't "get" this type of art.


California art scene???

I should've known better not to click at anything with Califonia Art content in it. They don't know what they're doing. You want real art in US, New York is the place, and a distant second is New Mexico.

It seems these people are Bored and nothing better to do but showing off their out of shape bodies.



by AmirT on

What do you mean "take a peak"? Are you talking about those pointed peaks on her?


I was also once walking with two Iranian friends and it was cold outside, so we got into a nearby gentlemen's club to warm up a little bit. Unfortunately, I didn't have a camera on me. Ah, the faces of those gentlemen...


Your comments are very reveling,

by Sid Sarshar on

Most comments indicate you want to see more pictures, how reveling? 


I like this!

by Benyamin on

This is a rare form of ART, since it has artistic merits but also it is arousing. That is why it makes it RARE as one can enjoy the artistc stuff simultaneously  can enjoy the erotica and get aroused!


thanks for the photos....

by sarshar45 on

i enjoyed the photos quite a bit... very nice. i agree, you should have taken more!


i did find it ironic/funny that when i clicked on a few of these photos to see them closer, that underneath were ads for muslim dating and networking.... ;)

Shock & Awe

by Jahanshah Javid on

Very interesting. I would have liked to have seen more faces. There were a few others you could have enlarged which would have added more flavor. But you managed well with just a taste.
