Porn Butterflies!

Artist Tran Truong has made beautiful works of 3D art containing hundreds of cut-out butterflies...not just any butterflies, though. Tran has cut hundreds of pornographic magazines into tiny, beautiful butterflies, making the art an exercise of enjoying altered art while catching a glimpse of a huge penis every once in a while . It's like Tyler Durden's Etsy shop. The exhibit is at the Telegraph Hill Gallery.

Artisinal Dildos!

Etsy is the place to go if you want to buy artisinal bookmarks, toaster cozies, knitted caps that look like things, and - hey! - they've got artisinal sex toys, too! The plus and the minus of this brings up a dark hole - sex toys aren't really regulated by anyone, although the FDA kinda, sorta does, so there's no really knowing if what you're getting is safe and clean. So, be careful out there, everyone: I'd gather that Etsy sellers are probably cleaner than that guy selling dildoes out of the back of his van, and if you're buying dildoes out of the back of the van, you probably don't know what Etsy is, so go figure. At the very least, these are absolute works of art, so maybe you get an abstract one, put it on your mantle, and save it for a rainy day.
