The motif of the vagina dentata has appeared in myths of many ancient cultures. This idea of the vagina as a carnivorous devourer has been used and interpreted in s0 many ways and for a variety of purposes. For example, many see it as cautionary stories to avoid lust, others think of it as a tale of female empowerment in which women devour and stand as superior and dominant beings. These are legends and myths that hold the deepest and darkest secrets of female sexuality. Ancient cultures like the Pre-Columbian, Greek, and Hindi, among others, tell many stories that explain –in a fantastical way– some of the most coveted enigmas of pleasure and female eroticism.
Besides these tales, there are some artists who devote themselves to illustrate the unexplored charms of women. Under the name of "Bape Ril," the following images are part of a series about women from other worlds who explore their beauty and sexuality through the many pleasures of life: a cigarette, a casual encounter, a video games night, or even touching themselves in front of a mirror, these are the moments that delight them the most.
The G-spot, the female orgasm, and other sexual mysteries of the path to ecstasy are implied in the realistic yet fantastic strokes of this series. A third eye, a set of horns, and twisted nipples present the idea that the female figure hasn't been totally explored yet. These characters show us the details of their heated dreams.
The darkest mysteries of female sexuality are the same that keep women on a pedestal that many admire, idolize, or envy. The millenary secrets of the female body and its eroticism are part of the charm and fear with which they hypnotize others.
