“The underlying affinity between sanctity and transgression has never ceased to be felt. Even in the eyes of believers, the libertine is nearer to the saint than the man without desire.” —

Belief by Gavin Bond from Rebellion series

In 2008 photographer Gavin Bond produced a series of fine art images called ‘Rebellion’ featuring Jenna Jameson. The highly provocative images center on the relationship between religion and female sexuality.
While Jameson plays the role of reformed porn star in Gavin Bond’s ‘Rebellion’, the photographs speak to the unyielding conflict between female sexuality and patriarchal religions seeking control over the female body.

Orlan - From Skaï and Sky and Video series, 1983
“Carnal Art is self-portraiture in the classical sense, but realised   through the possibility of technology. It swings between defiguration   and refiguration. Its inscription in the flesh is a function of our age.    The body has become a “modified ready-made”, no longer seen as the   ideal it once represented; the body is not anymore this ideal ready-made   it was satisfying to sign.”
— Orlan, Manifesto of Carnal Art

Clovis Trouille, Religieuse Italienne Fumant la Cigarette, 1944
Most certainly previously reblogged in nun-fervor, but this image is larger. Is sizeism relevant to nuntasmia? Unless you’re talking about charred bone nun wanking in The Devils, probably not. Er.
