Sex on The Streets

One can't help to notice, when walking around anywhere around Rio, the sheer amount of sexploitation that is rubbed on your face at every moment of the day. This cool character above is advertising a sex shop on a very busy intersection of downtown earlier today. Besides selling the usual dildos and vibrators, they also home deliver! By the way the guy is on stilts so you can't really miss him.




Most newsstands also display an enormous amount of nudie magazines with quite scandalous covers for American standards, mostly straight stuff. In Brazil you can buy hardcore porn and DVDs in plain sight next to your daily papers and M&Ms. They also prop these card board displays against their stands advertising the new issues of the fancier girlie publications, like Playboy. The brunette is a bimbo on a TV parody show, you know those that just stand there in bikinis, all smiles and no lines. The blond is a new semi-celebrity famous for being "the hick" on Brazilian Big Brother, but because of her big booty she supposedly earned US$350,000 to drop her panties for Playboy.

I have visited Rio de Janeiro last summer and I remember how many skin magazines were hanging outside the kiosks in Ipanema area. The covers were pretty explicit with round Brazilian asses always perked up in the air. But they are almost naked on the streets anyway!

Maybe Rio is just more at peace, truthful and in touch with something real whereas most other places maybe are not- that underneath our clothes, underneath our hats, underneath our polished civil masks during our daily work or chores or duties... we'd really just rather be making love... a lot.
