Gartel has so superbly captured...the essence of erotic desire. In an age of sex being turned into merely a forbidden behavior and a troublesome medical condition, Gartel has rallied and preserved sexual teasing, seduction, and allure into its rightful pleasurable position by his commendable artistic photographic journaling. In my thirty years as a Sexologist, it is nice to see sex education, preservation, and permission for sexual expression and fun so alive in his work. ?r. Gil Eriksen, Director of Research at the Institute for Reality StudiesRenowned digital media artist Laurence M. Gartel records the world of Fetish in his own inimitable style. As an artist he brings his own creative input and adds his twist to the storyline, becoming a participant through the creative process of working with the imagery. This book is loaded with Gartel's provocative art, including 103 set pieces plus many of the posters and other graphic art for which Gartel has received such acclaim. This work will entertain and confront, as all great art will do. And in the end the reader will be left to ponder the creative mind that brought these images into being. An aesthetic and erotic adventure awaits.
