Raw Sex with Man Ray: 1929

Two aspects of Nature can be very Raw: Weather and Sex
Both are tied to the Seasons

dievca has been dealing with Weather for the past 3 days.
she would like to move her attention to Sex

Yes, Sex can be gentle and loving. It can also be harsh and demanding.
In BDSM there is always the elements of domination and submission
surround by messy, earthy, direct and indirect actions.

Man Ray captured what dievca is desiring with his work for the Seasons.

Models: Man Ray and Kiki de Montparnasse

When the Brussels-based art magazine Varits was unable to pay a printers’ bill in 1929 it was suggested that they publish an erotic edition to raise working capital; Louis Aragon approached Man Ray for some photographs to include in the volume, and was presented with a sheaf of closely cropped pornographic prints featuring a couple widely assumed to be Kiki Montparnesse and Man Ray himself. The edition was entitled simply 1929, and some 500 copies featuring four of the photos were printed. Most of them were promptly seized by French Customs, but the few copies that got through were soon on sale clandestinely in Paris at greatly inflated prices. (1929, by Benjamin Pret, Aragon and Man Ray is currently published by Alyscamps Press, Paris & London, ISBN 1897722 885).
