Ripeness is all


Does a hung parliament mean austerity to come? The Amorist has a sudden longing for summer sunshine, bare skin and soft generous flesh. Skinny models start to look unfed and undernourished when what we need is the warm embrace of comfort, generosity and love. This ravishing Edwardian model is a promise of hope and youth.

I will cover you with love when next I see you, with caresses, with ecstasy. I want to gorge you with all the joys of the flesh, so that you faint and die.
Gustave Flaubert to Louise Colet, 1846
