   Japanese painter Hajime Sorayama found fame in the 80s with skillfully executed, highly fetishized airbrushed portraits of sexy female forms. His "objets de fetish" quickly found their way into American men's magazines Playboy & Penthouse, from there he went on to illustrate movie posters, album covers & other ads for various international brands.

Want more S&M taboo
Fetishized females

   Some of Sorayama's art is cringe inducingly sexist, but his images are so seductive, so technically masterful that he draws the viewer into his world. There is love &/or passion in his art. He lovingly objectifies women, he passionately fetishizes them & the results are fantastic guilty pleasures.

   Sorayama-san certainly doesn't have an Asian fetish. This is one of the few works featuring an Asian woman

   Silver is a fetish I completely understand. For me, there is nothing sexier than a beautiful woman wearing silver clothing, not too much tho.

   I don't really get the maid fetish. I mean I get it, having a sexy female servant take care & obey you. I just don't get the immense popularity of it this decade. I've been meaning to write a post about this, perhaps soon-ish.
