Explore your wildest pleasures with luxury lingerie by Coco de Mer, check the new collection Shunga and Muse.
Shunga, literally “spring pictures”, is an erotic artistic tradition that emerged from early modern Japan, featuring graphic images of sexual activity. Produced by the thousands during the Edo period (1600-1868), shunga offered sexuality a shameless visual platform, where sexual pleasure and female sexuality were not only acknowledged but encouraged.
Shunga had functions beyond its aesthetic appeal. Its primary use would have involved viewing and sharing the paintings or books with close friends or sexual partners. The images were also used to provide sexual education for young couples, to encourage a warrior going into battle and even to protect homes. While shunga was chiefly commissioned and painted by men, it has been found among the material goods presented to a Japanese bride, suggesting that it was also highly valued by women.
Each collection celebrates the pleasures of lovemaking; colourfully presenting mutual attraction and sexual desire as natural and unaffected through delicate and exclusive embroideries, shimmering French laces and velvet bound cutaways.
