    Lets say that someone has broken 7-9 of the 10 commandments (I not fully sure if 2 commandments were fully broken – there is some room for interpretation).

    Which level of hell can one expect as a minimum.

    I… errr… my friend would like to know where to tell his friends send birthday cards and invites to.

Some people are really uptight about any kind of nudity, and chances are someone browsing MCS works for one of them.

    Hmmm… when I read the title and saw it was NSFW, I first thought it would be a Devil May Cry slash pic, then I noticed the date and the classical art tag.

Bouguereau’s works that were inspired by mythology, literature and religion have a unique energy, as he often used dynamic and striking poses in them combined with masterful lighting and a subtle yet vibrant palette. This can clearly be seen here with this depiction of the infamous Muay Thai Kick to the Back/Vampire Neck… Read more »
